Bad day to make glass

This "B" Beehive has multiple flaws. All are from the factory. I think the guy that made this one was either new or having a really bad day. First is the large metal piece to the left of the "B". Looks like a tooth from something? On the rear, there are 4 spots that I thought were chips. After cleaning and looking closer, they are flaws. They are spots where something hit the insulator when it was still hot and pushed into the glass making a raised lip or divot. One is a large chunk of scrap glass, almost looks like a pontil mark from hand blowing. And add a lot of bubbles just for good measure! It has a couple tiny flakes but otherwise is perfect. Almost forgot...both skirts are warped. The inner is very warped.
