My pipe rack and 12 pipes arrived today, and some of these look great, but one of them has what looks like cake/resin on the outside? It's like it was dropped in mud and left to dry or something...

Has anyone ever experienced something like this before?

I will post pictures of it later, as I am not around my computer at the moment.

Try a little spit on a paper towel & see if it starts to rub off. If it does, there you are.

Rim-caking is pretty common on estates or other well-loved pipes.   You'd be surprised what little effort it takes to find perfectly good briar underneath (provided the original owner didn't carelessly light up year after year).   Sometimes I'll take a folded paper towel and barely moisten it with water, set the pipe on top of it (rim down) for an hour or so, and gently wipe away the gooey aftermath once it has marinated.    A little polishing with a scrap piece of cotton, you'd be good to go.  

Cool
