You're refering to the top of the stummel, its colour?

Yea, it's fairly dark. It could be nothing, just the actual colour; or something fishy.

Either way, it's hard to say as there is only 1 pic of it.

I was more referring to the stamping, wrong. Logo, wrong. Should say business, as it's a large pipe should say KS, ect...

Ah....

Well, I can't say, I do not own any Ascorti and don't know much about the brand, either.

It's sort of similar to this one:

Can't really say much about the stem logo with a single blurry pic. Not sure how the bowl interior would get scratched from "being older and moved". Seller doesn't sound like a pipe smoker or someone that received a passing grade in English 101.

It's an Ascorti pipe. The stamping is, of course, not what one is used to seeing, but there are other Ascortis out there sold there are like this one, as is evidenced above. The logo is blurry, but it looks fine from what I can tell. Business, king size pipes don't always have the business/KS nomenclature. Why, I don't know. The blackened part at the top has to be stain, unless someone took a blowtorch and lit the thing up. It's most likely an estate, but a fair priced one IMO.

Understand that faking a used 80 dollar pipe is not really profitable.

Ascorti and Caminetto have both used that darkened top on a million pipes, not sure why, I never liked it much myself. But it's not rare at all.

So that looks perfectly legit and perfectly sound to me.
