TA4 – An apple a day keeps the cavity’s away, right? So, why not a bowl of John Surrey’s “Snow Apple” a day? From a very famous Tobacconist shop on New York’s 5th Avenue. As noted on the tin, this one is delicately flavored with the delicious aroma of Snow Apples! This 8 oz tin is from the 1960’s and it sells for $45 – SOLD


TA5 – From the 1960’s comes this factory sealed 16 oz tin with tax stamp still intact of Buckingham Bright Plug Cut. The originator was the John J. Bagley & Company and blended by the American Tobacco Company. I am assuming (not a wise thing to do, I guess), that when it says Bright Cut Plug that the contents are Cut Plug Virginia. This prized old 16 oz tin sells for $60 – SOLD


TA6 – Amazing! From the 1950’s. This is a 16 oz thick glass jar of John Middleton’s Walnut that not only has a factory seal, but the tax stamp still intact and the tightly packed tobacco within looks to be in terrific shape. This one was a very complex high end “Drugstore” blend of Burley, unflavored Black Cavendish, Kentucky, Latakia, Maryland, Oriental and Virginia tobaccos. This ultra rare item sells for $95 – SOLD


LS7 – This is a 12 oz ring pull top factory sealed tin of Skandinavik from the 1990’s. And folks, this is the original import from the Skandinavisk Tobacco Company of Copenhagen, Denmark and not the later Scandinavian Tobacco Group version. Also, check out how puffed up the top lid is. It looks like its about to burst which indicates a lot of fermentation and is always a good sign of good stuff within! A combination of Virginia and Burley that had a special top coat that made it mildly aromatic but all tobacco in taste. This presentation tin also is decorated with their famous Danmark sailing vessel that was launched in 1932 and remains afloat even today! The contents of this tin will surely float your boat with all the aging. It sells for $60


TA8 – From the 1970’s, this is a 7 ounce lever top factory sealed tin of the original American Tobacco Company for Philip Morris Field & Stream. As some of you pipe historians know, this was the tobacco of choice for President Gerald Ford. It contains Black Cavendish misted with Licorice, Burley and Virginia and it is in easy to fill cube cut form. If you want to look presidential, try this one! I have just 1 tin available for $45 – SOLD


TA9 – These are 16 oz lever top tins of the 1960’s original Philip Morris version of Bond Street (known as Bourbon Street when American Tobacco Company later took over the blending). And the tax stamps are still intact! Black Cavendish, Burley Cavendish, Kentucky, Latakia, Perique and Virginia, cased with Bourbon and offering a seldom tasted compilation. Should be quite smooth by now with all the aging. I have 2 of these 16 oz classic tins available for $60 per tin

Should be quite smooth by now with all the aging. I have 1 tin available for $40


TA11 – This is a still factory sealed old 1940’s heavy tin of Briggs Mixture that has no weight marked but tin included, it weighed 1-pound, 5-ounces. This is the ORIGINAL, made by Philip Morris (prior to the American Tobacco Company and then the House of Windsor versions). Although factory sealed with no rust or other issues, there is a lot of shake and I believe the contents to be dry and have priced the tin accordingly. Briggs Mixture looks like chunky, broken up pieces of cardboard in the tin. Very unusual presentation. Very cool burning, it is straight forward in taste with little variance in flavor as you work your way down the bowl. A straight forward mostly Burley with some Virginia, and I think it is topped with something, but could be wrong. The topping (if there),  is so light it is almost undetectable, but somehow enhances the flavor and made for an enjoyable and unique smoke. “When a Feller Needs a Friend” Briggs is a great choice! Just 1 tin available for $40 – SOLD


TA12 – This is a 14 oz lever top tin of Briggs Mixture. Made by Philip Morris (prior to the American Tobacco Company and then the House of Windsor versions).

Very cool burning, it is straight forward in taste with little variance in flavor as you work your way down the bowl.

Just 1 tin available for $40 – SOLD


TA14 – Now this is interesting and was probably some kind of promotional for Briggs Mixture. I have received a group of large Oak Barrel with screw off lids of Briggs, and inside the barrel are still factory sealed with tax stamp intact, 16-ounce packages of Briggs. The leaf looks solid but is dry. I can’t guess the age but certainly older as they arrived with a lot of the other older classic “Drugstore” tins that I am currently selling. Briggs had a straight forward in taste with little variance in flavor as you work your way down the bowl. A mostly Burley with some Virginia. The topping is so light as to be almost undetectable, but somehow enhances the flavor and makes for an enjoyable and unique smoke. “When a Feller Needs a Friend” Briggs is a great choice! And if you don’t want the tobacco, hey, the oak barrel is plenty cool by itself! I have just 2 of these cool looking old one-pound Oak Barrels of Briggs Mixture still available for $75 per barrel


TA15 – One of the all-time most famous of “Drugstore” blends, the original Douwe Egberts Amphora Red Full Aroma in a 12 oz tin from the early 1990’s. This old classic, with more than 20-years of aging, should now be sensational at the match! Toasted Burley and Virginia with Cavendish to add fullness to the smoke, and a little aromatic enhancement for the wonderful smell at the match that has never been duplicated. I remember back in the 1970’s when I first started my pipe smoking journey, just about every pipe smoker I met had smoked and enjoyed this truly outstanding tobacco. I have just 1 tin available for $75


TA16 – Here is what has become the most popular “Drugstore” blend in my shop, a 12 oz tin of the original Douwe Egberts Amphora Regular from the 1980’s or early 1990’s with the original tax stamp intact. It is also a limited edition presentation tin featuring beautiful tin art that indicates on the side of the tin (in four different languages, no less), that the tin art features an Eighteenth Century Dutch Winter Scene!

TA17 – Here is what has become the most popular “Drugstore” blend in my shop, 12 oz tins of the original Douwe Egberts Amphora Regular that are dated to the early 1990’s and the original tax stamp is still intact on all of them! And note that all three tins have a little different tin art. This old classic, with more than 20-years of aging, should now be sensational at the match! I have sold a lot of these and the reports coming back to me is that the tobacco is still moist and that the aging has done incredibly wonderful tings to an already super blend. Considered to be one of the finest “drugstore” blends ever to hit the market. Toasted Burley and Virginia with Cavendish to add fullness to the smoke. I remember back in the 1970’s when I first started my pipe smoking journey, just about every pipe smoker I met had smoked and enjoyed this truly outstanding tobacco. I have just 1 of these 12 oz tins still available for $75


TA18 – the original Douwe Egberts Black Cavendish in a 12 oz tin from the early 1990’s. This old classic, with more than 20-years of aging, should now be sensational at the match! As detailed on the side label of this tin – “Lightly toasted selected Virginia leaves are double fermented to bring forth a slightly spicy taste, a delightful hint of aroma and a rich bouquet. The double fermenting of the Virginia leaf also produces the rich black appearance …”  This 12 oz tin sells for $65 – SOLD


TA19 – A 12 oz tin of the original Douwe Egberts Amphora Extra Mild Cavendish that is from the early 1990’s. This old classic, with more than 20-years of aging, should now be sensational at the match! Considered to be one of the finest “drugstore” blends ever to hit the market.

TA20 – One of the all-time classic drugstore blends, Union Leader in a 12 oz still factory sealed twist top tin from the 1980’s or early to mid 1990’s. This is the American Tobacco Company version which was made prior to the House of Windsor taking over the blending in the  late 1990’s and it was used as both pipe and ROY cigarette tobacco. A mostly Burley with a little Virginia combination which is lightly topped with maple. The smoking experience is “all tobacco” with just a hint of sweetness from the topping. The flavor and nicotine punch is delightful and dizzying. If you enjoy top-shelf Burley mixed with some fine Virginia and processed in a unique and satisfying way, grab this tin of Union Leader and go to work on it! Just 1 tin available for $50


TA21 – From the William Demuth Company which at one time had the oldest tobacco ship in America (Lancaster, PA.), this is a 1960’s lever top 7 oz tin of Demuths’ Old Blend. The descriptive on the side of the tin says “… is a combination of fine tobaccos blended into a cool, slow burning miture that is mild and mellow.” This wonderful old time classic is full, sealed and ready to please with old world flavor, I am sure. This tin sells for $40 – SOLD


TA22 – This is the original Holland House Aromatic in an 8 oz screw lid tin blended by the Franciscus Lieftinck, of Groningen, Holland back in the 1970’s. What makes this one interesting is the fact that it is touted as the only pipe tobacco in the world cured with Heather Honey from Holland. This handsome tin sells for $40


TA23 – From the American Tobacco Company comes this 1960’s or 1970’s handsome 14 oz tin of Burgundy. I wish I could tell you what the contents are like, but my research drew blanks. But hey, it says on the side of the tin “Smoking Pleasure – Fine Taste – Pleasant Aroma.” So, it should be quite tasty, right? This tin sells for $45


TA25 – A wonderful find here – From the Pinkerton Tobacco Company in the 1980’s, these are still beautifully conditioned and perfectly factory sealed 1-1/2 oz tins of Half and Half Burley & Bright. A blend that stole the show in drugstores everywhere with its tasty Virginia and toasted White Burley goodness. I have 8 of these tins available for $20 per tin


TA26 – Another one of the most famous tobaccos of all time, Sir Walter Raleigh in a 14 oz still factory sealed ring pull tin from the 1990’s. This is the later Lane Limited version that is still being made today A cube cut Burley with an all tobacco taste that was enhanced with an aromatic agent.  This tin sells for $50


TA27 – Another one of the most famous tobaccos of all time, Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic Mixture in a 14 oz still factory sealed ring pull tin from the 1990’s. This is the later Lane Limited version that is still being made today.  Unlike the standard cube cut version, this one is a shag cut and stronger in the nicotine department. It also is enhanced with what SWR says are three different liquors. I’ve personally smoked this one and while it does have the enhancement of the booze, it still has the all tobacco taste of the regular SWR. This tin sells for $50


TA28 – And another famous Sir Walter Raleigh and the most elegant of the three SWR offerings; this is Special Blend. This one has a lot of Virginia leaf with less Burley and is more ribbon than shag cut and does have the small cubed Burley as well. While it has the famous Sir Walter Raleigh enhancement, it is more subdued. This tin has a crease near the bottom on one side but it is not at all compromising. Sill, a bit of a discount for the boo-boo and this tin sells for $45 – SOLD


TA29 – This is the Scandinavian Tobacco Group owned and Lane Limited produced Granger in a 12 oz pop top tin from the 1990’s.. A thick, rough cut Burley with a mild top flavoring for a nice aroma at the match. And just watch that dog on the front of the tin. He’s “pointing” you to some great tobacco! I have just 1 tin available for $50


TA30 – Perhaps the most famous American “Drugstore Blend” of all-time, Prince Albert in a 7 ounce still factory sealed heavy duty plastic tub that is from the 1990’s. I have purchased pouches of the Prince many times over the years and smoke the stuff up just for the fun and nostalgia. Pure crimp cut Burley, cool and pleasant. The room note sends the ladies running–in your direction! This more than two decade old tub sells for $40


TA31 – From Larus & Brother and the House of Edgeworth, this is a perfectly still factory sealed 16 oz lever top tin of Blend #11 from the 1960’s. I have no idea what’s inside, but if it’s something from the House of Edgeworth then it’s gotta be good, right? This 16 ounce tin sells for $50


TA32 – These are 14 oz factory sealed ring pull tins of the long gone Edgeworth Ready-Rubbed and these tins look like they came right off the shelf and even have slightly puffy tin bottoms (a good thing!) and I am sure they are ready to please. These tins are from the late 90’s through 2002. Originally produced by the House of Edgeworth for Larus & Brother, this tobacco hit the pipe smoking world way back in 1903 and was a strong seller for over a century before it went out of production in 2006. This is a cubed Burley that also contains a smidgen of Virginia. The taste is all tobacco, but with a subtle, enhanced sweetness that doesn’t go away as the leaf is consumed. So, if you like: an easy to pack Burley with a hint of Virginia… a nicotine punch… a cool burn… is just a tad on the sweet side… try Edgeworth Ready-Rubbed and then thank me later! I have 1 of these 14 oz tins stil available for $68


TA33 – Edward G. Robinson 8 oz oz factory sealed lever top tin from the 1960’s or 1970’s. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Created in 1946, the blending was done under the personal supervision of Edward G. Robinson himself, this is a mild aromatic with a light burley nuttiness and flavored black cavendish taste. Fruity plum notes are given a slight flavor push from a hint of latakia, and a very pleasing top note of liquor. This 12 oz factory sealed tin sells for $50


TA-34 – Here’s a sweet one from days past – early 1990’s factory sealed 7 oz canisters of the original Borkum Riff. This is the one with the original Burley and Virginia (65% Virginia), combination flavored with whiskey. The current blend changed a little as it is now all Burley with some Cavendish treated Burley. I have 4 of these marvelous old 7 oz factory sealed tins still available for $30 per tin


TA36 – The original American Tobacco Company production 14 oz heavy duty plastic humidor encased Bourbon Blend. I’ve not seen this one in eons. Note that this is a promotional tin that got you both the tobacco and the humidor that is a twist seal. All I know about this blend is what it says on the side of the tin, “Blended With Fine Bourbon Whiskey.”  I have 1 of these handsome and well preserved humidor tins still available and it sells for $75


TA37 – This a still factory sealed 14 oz tin of the original, Kentucky Club of Virginia produced London Dock.  As good as it gets regarding “drugstore” type blends and certainly right up there with Walnut as an English style “Druggie.” High quality, rich and smoky Latakia, fine, tart and spicy Orientals, and Virginia leaf in short ribbon cut form and as naturally sweet as one will taste. Combined, the presentation was sinfully delicious, cool and dry from first puff to last. Again, IMO, one of the all-time great “drugstore” blends. I have 3 of these still in perfect condition factory sealed tins available for $50 per tin


TA38 – Middleton’s 1990’s factory cellophane wrapped 7 oz plastic tub of Black & Mild. A fine crimp cut Black Cavendish with a topping that is not identifiable, but a Middleton classic that is still going strong today. This 7 oz tub sells for $30


ST4 – How cool is this?!!! It is an original Pinkerton Tobacco Company Plow Boy 8 oz factory sealed ring pull tin that is in amazing condition for its age and looks like it came right off the tobacconist’s shelf. 1980’s production and this is the one that was touted as “Chewing and Smoking” tobacco. Just 1 tin available for $75


TA39 – Sail Aromatic 14 oz tin stil factory sealed in from either the 1980’s or early 1990’s. Made by Theodorus Niemeyer of Holland. So, this is the original and not the current STG production. This original was more of a shag cut with a Virginia and Burley base and a Burley Black Cavendish was added and sweetened with some sort of casing that enhanced the overall aroma and sweetened up the flavor. This 14 oz tin sells for $40


TA40 – Another golden oldie tin that looks like it came right off the shelf! This is a no longer produced 14 oz lever top still factory sealed tin of the Faber, Coe & Gregg classic, Brindley’s Mixture. A mostly Burley/Virginia crimp cut compilation that had just enough Latakia for smokiness and a little misted (ripe fig taste to me), Black Cavendish. Back in the day considered to be one of the finest American blends on the market. I have 1 tin available for $60


TA41 – The long gone Kentucky Club Fine Cut in a 16 oz canister that remains factory sealed. No date stamp but has the old Willoughby Taylor “Blended by” notation on the side of the tin and at some point during the late 1980’s these tins switched tall square cans. Five choice imported and domestic tobaccos are in this one; Turkish, Perique, White Burley, Carolina and Bright Virginia that is in mixed cube, ribbon, broken flake and shag form. Although factory sealed and with no rust or dents, there is a lot of shake, so a reduced price is in order in case the contents are dry. This tin sells for $40


TA42 – The long gone Kentucky Club Mild in a 14 oz canister with inner bag. No date stamp but research has narrowed it down to the 1980’s or 1990’s. Five choice imported and domestic tobaccos are in this one; Turkish, Perique, White Burley, Carolina and Bright Virginia that is in mixed cube, ribbon, broken flake and shag form. This tin sells for $40


TA43 – The long gone Kentucky Club in 7 oz canisters with inner bags. No date stamp but research has narrowed it down to the 1980’s-1990’s. Five choice imported and domestic tobaccos are in this one; Turkish, Perique, White Burley, Carolina and Bright Virginia that is in mixed cube, ribbon, broken flake and shag form. I have 2 tins available for $30 per tin


TA44 – Model in a 14 ounce lever top tin from back when the US. Tobacco Company (prior to House of Windsor), was creating this one in the late 1970’s and 1980’s after getting the recipe and blending rights from Phillip Morris. According to the reviewer in P&T magazine back in the 90’s (William Serad), Model was at one time the most popular tobacco in the United States. Here are my personal notes after I smoked this one years ago;  Upon opening the tin I was greeted by a pleasant, light and definitely “tobacco” smell. At the match, the flavor threw its hardest punch. Very much a “tobacco” taste, and my tongue never did detect any topping. It must be somewhat cased though because my wife said the room note was pleasant. I would not define the flavor as sweet, per se, but it certainly never turned bitter. The taste lightened up as I progressed down the bowl and I did not get any heavy hit of nicotine. It was tasty stuff! This 14-ounce tin sells for $60


TA45 – Model in a 14 ounce lever top tin from back when the US. Tobacco Company (prior to House of Windsor), was creating this one in the late 1970’s and 1980’s after getting the recipe and blending rights from Phillip Morris. This tin is newer than the one above and is probably circa 1980’s. According to the reviewer in P&T magazine back in the 90’s (William Serad), Model was at one time the most popular tobacco in the United States. Here are my personal notes after I smoked this one years ago;  Upon opening the tin I was greeted by a pleasant, light and definitely “tobacco” smell.

TA46 – Here’s another hot seller on my “Drugstore” page – This is a 14 oz lever top sealed and in beautiful condition 1970’s or 1980’s tin of Hickory. Another of the long-gone classics on display and for sale here in Pipestud’s Consignment Shop. As many of you old timers (of which I am one), may recall, this was the blend of choice for the late Tom Dunn who was the owner/publisher/editor of the famous Pipe Smoker’s Ephemeris Magazine that lasted for 45 years until Mr. Dunn’s death in 2005. I’ve never tasted an all Burley leaf tobacco anything close to this one. The hickory nut flavoring was somewhat like grape vine in its presentation, and left a somewhat dry taste in my mouth with an aftertaste that I actually enjoyed. Mild to the hilt, watch your pipe carefully to make sure its still lit when you are smoking. Why? Because that hickory flavoring still comes through the shank and stem when you puff even when the pipe’s not lit. This 14 oz tin is available for $60


TA47 – Here’s another hot seller on my “Drugstore” page – This is a 7 oz lever top sealed and in beautiful condition 1970’s or 1980’s tin of Hickory. Another of the long-gone classics on display and for sale here in Pipestud’s Consignment Shop. As many of you old timers (of which I am one), may recall, this was the blend of choice for the late Tom Dunn who was the owner/publisher/editor of the famous Pipe Smoker’s Ephemeris Magazine that lasted for 45 years until Mr. Dunn’s death in 2005.

Because that hickory flavoring still comes through the shank and stem when you puff even when the pipe’s not lit. This 7 oz tin is available for $40 – SOLD


TA48 – And here you thought that Dill’s only produced pipe cleaners. How about this dandy 16 oz still factory sealed lever top tin. Made by the J.G. Dill Company of Richmond, Virginia’s successor, the United States Tobacco Company. And what’s in this one, you ask? Well, I don’t know but have heard rumors that it was a cigar leaf/Virginia combination. This one hails from the 1970’s. Just 1 tin available for $50


TA49 – I bet a lot of you old timers (like me), remember this old “drugstore” classic, Friends. These are factory sealed twist top tins manufactured by the old US Tobacco Company of Richmond, Virginia from the 1980’s or early 1990’s. A very mild crimp cut blend of Burley with a bit of Virginia for body. Smooth and savory, Friends was old time good and just naturally made a fellow want to pet his dog. I have 3 of these 12-ounce tins and they sell for $40 per tin


TA50 – The famous Crosby Square 8 oz tins made by Kentucky Club and dated back to the 1990’s. As noted in one of the photos of the side panel description, this was a combination of Carolina Bright Virginia and White Burley for those who prefer a natural taste and aroma. I have 1 tin still available for $35  tin


TA51 – From Sutliff, this is Private Stock No. 1, Bourbon and Bright in a 12 ounce lever top tin from (I am guessing), the 1970’s since many of the “drugstore” tins from this same seller are from that time period. This no longer made blend is described this way on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Aromatic, cavendish cut tobaccos with a dash of spirits that adds an extra dimension to our smooth tasting tobaccos.” This 12 oz tin has a small dent on the side that you can see in the photo and sells for $50


TA52 – Here it is folks, the old Sutliff Heine’s Blend in lever top 14 oz tins that I swear look like they just came off the tobacconist’s shelf. Late 1970’s or possibly early 1980’s production. It had been many moons since I last smoked this one and got a tin for myself and am still in heaven as I have thoroughly enjoyed every bowl of this old classic. It contains cubed Burley and Deer Tongue as well as a dark and earthy fermented fruit sort of flavoring. The overall presentation was what made it one of the all time great’s. Still being produced today. I have just 2 of these marvelously preserved tins available for $50 per tin


TA53 – The polarizing famous Sutliff blend, Mixture #79 in a 7oz factory sealed lever top tin from the 1970’s. As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Rich burley tobaccos, blended to the original, time-honored formula of the Sutliff’s of California, maintains the tradition of this perennial favorite. A topping of natural vanilla flavoring gives this basic pipe tobacco blend a soft, sweet aroma to enhance its already mild, biteless, round taste.” Just 1 tin available for $40


TA54 – The House of Windsor version of Bourbon Street in 2 oz tins from the early 2000’s (originally Bond Street and then the ATC changed the name to Bourbon Street and HOW has kept that name). Black Burley Cavendish, Kentucky, Latakia, Perique and Virginia, cased with Bourbon and offering a seldom tasted compilation. Should be quite smooth by now with all the aging. I have 2 of these tins available for $15 per tin


TA55 – This is the House of Windsor version of Mapleton from the early 2000’s in a 2 oz tin. The blend was a Burley and Virginia with the combined flavors of Rum & Maple. This 2 oz tin sells for $15


TA56 – Here it is folks, the only ‘MENTHOL” pipe tobacco ever made (at least, that I know of). Made by Kentucky Club, this is a 1970’s 7 oz factory sealed tin of GREENBRIER. I’ve never smoked it but have been told its a Burley with menthol infused Black Cavendish and that it is stout. Just 1 tin available for $25


TA57 – From Kentucky Club, this is Pouch Mixture in 7 oz tins from the 1980’s or 1990’s. According to the info on the side of the tin – “A mildly aromatic cool-smoking mixture of Carolina and Virginia Brights, Latakia, Perique and White Burley tobaccos.” I have 1 tin still available for $25 – SOLD


TA58 – What old-time puffer has not had a bowl of Paladin Black Cherry in his or her lifetime? Well, here’s a ring pull 12 ounce tin from the 1990’s that is ready to please. This is the current Lane Limited version (originally made by Pinkerton). It is extremely mild and cool. The stoving keeps this from biting the tongue, even with the casing. I found a pouch at a drug store a few months ago, and had to revisit this classic old blend. Yes, it is of drug store quality, but should be given a fair shake. If you want a really sweet, light tobacco taste, and don’t want to purchase a goop laden aromatic, then take up with Paladin for a nostalgic ride. Just 1 tin available for $45
