Harlock, I think they still make that, but they call it Istanbul now.

Probably Siam, but if we keep this up I'll start calling my Rhodesians "Zimbabweans".

I'm not sure I want to try. I could attempt to re-hydrate it, but what if I really liked it? It's not like I can go buy some more at the same price. Razz

I would smoke it because a 150lb airconditioner could fall from a 7 storie bldg and kill me today. You may as well consume all the baccy you can. Allow yourself the widest range of expirience possible in life.

Well, I suppose that's one way of looking at it. Now that air conditioner season has finally arrived in Michigan, I guess it's about time I read Gravity's Rainbow, hit the needle, and hooked up with a tranny. Heck, 'Mater, you want some? The 'baccy, not the tranny; (s)he refuses to get in the mailbox. Seriously, if you want to try "a legendary mixture" of unknown vintage, I'll send you some. I've got a few other parcels from my cellar shipping out on Monday, I'll add yours to the pile.

Those old flat tins are the perfect size for a 100-ct bag of pipe cleaners. I keep meaning to add some lead shot to the bottom of one to make it more stable.

If I hadn't started collecting tins I may never have learned that Half and Half was originally a mixture of Lucky Strike burley and Bagley's Buckingham Bright Cut Plug. (Like in tha first pic I posted here)





Plus it came in these neat little telescoping tins. In case you only wanted the "Half" of it. Razz

Gentlemen, this has been an incredibly interesting thread! Being new to pipes I was unaware of the wealth of history and culture that could be enjoyed through the collection of old tobacco tins. This would be a fun addition to the collection of the pipes themselves. I feel some antique shop visits coming when I return home...

Antique shops are usually your best bet for finding bargains on these, especially if you just want a few for decorating your man cave, rather than building a complete set of rarities. Any Bagley tins on ebay usually sell for $50-$150, but I don't think I've ever payed more than $5 for one of mine.
On a side note (with a short history lesson thrown in), some of you may know that my real name is, in fact, George K. Bagley. The Bagley Tobacco Company was founded in Detroit by a distant relation of mine, John J. Bagley, who later became a police commissioner, an alderman of Detroit, helped found the republican party, and served as Governor of Michigan from 1873 to 1877.
He began his career at age 15 as an apprentice with the Mayflower Tobacco Company in Detroit. 7 years later he bought them out and eventually turned his company into an industry leader. Surprisingly, Detroit was a major player in the tobacco business at the time. A lot of quality leaf actually came from the fields of southern Ontario, just across the river.
