 What sort of pad is this?

Came on a 1947 Boosey & Hawkes Imperial (pre-926) that i just acquired.

Most pads are tan leather and quite new, or at least hardly played since repadding.

Picture is of the throat A key. The black top layer is a bit "spongey" and the bottom is either synthetic or cork.

My first reaction is that there is no way this is going to seal efficiently.

There are signs of light swedging and filling of tone holes with (probably) nail policsh, so it was loved at some stage.
