Howdy all,

I have enjoyed reading the pipe digest and now wish to contribute.  
Unfortunately my contribution is not that of a whimsical antidote,
or receipe for growing tobacco, but a question.

I have only started to 'dabble' in the wonderful world of pipes and
their 'toys'.  My father gave me a pipe a few months ago.  I would
like to know if it is a decent brand of pipe or just a regular everyday
pipe that he figured would be fine to get me going.  I don't see my
father all that often lately and I don't want to just come out and
ask him about the pipe.  Well.. onto the specifics.  The pipe has
the words "Buts-Choquin VERSAILLES" (well thats what I could make of it)
pressed into the wood grain stem.  And on the mouth piece the letters
"BC" are etched.

I am very anxious to read your responses.

Roll Tide,
Rod

[ Butz-Choquin is a respected French pipemaker. Don't know about the
value of the specific pipe, though. But, if you like it, enjoy! -S. ]

Monica should contact the Museum of the American Indian in NYC (a branch of
the Smithsonian) or the Smithsonian itself in DC.
 
On another topic, have any of your cigar smoking members heard of J R
Tobacco in North Carolina? Can save a bundle on cigars. For a catalog, call
1-800-J-R-CIGAR. Interesting place to visit (right on I95) with bargains in
remaindered books by the hundreds of titles, huge cigar inventory (obscure
ones tend to be a bit dried out), cut rate brand name cosmetics, some pipes
and lots of the commercial packaged pipe tobaccos. I buy my cigars from
there and my tobacco (Riverboat, a Danish blend cavendish-cut burley; mild
aromatic, women seem to love having me around with it <g>) and pipes from
the Tabagerie, Westport CT on US 1 between I95 exits 17-18 (closer to 18,
head south on US 1 from the exit, in shops across from Ed Mitchell's
clothing). If you stop in, tell Tony I sent you and be sure to check out his
estate pipes.

[ Thanks, Don! I'll put it in the Resource Guide. -S. ]
