For once I have a contribution to make, which I am so grateful to have chanced upon while surfing the Web for something I no longer even remember (and said forgotten search therefore being of no consequence), that needs no opening quote or official introduction.  I have no idea what category this offering falls under but doubt the change to my typical format will be met with anything less than approval and pleasure by the majority of this forum’s readers and contributors.  My  only request – call it a suggestion, if you prefer – is that the following list, courtesy of the Ozark Pipe Smokers of Rogers, AR, USA, be given a thorough reading with all due sobriety and gravity.  And I hereby move for its formal adoption by all pipe clubs, everywhere.  Anyone wishing to second the motion may do so by commenting below.

Here is a coupon from a box of Union Leader from my collection.100_1978 (640x613).jpg100_1979 (640x399).jpg100_1980 (640x429).jpg

It has a early bar code so i would say it is most likely from around mid-late 1970’s.100_1981 (640x309).jpg

Here is a order form that was sent to you with the initial pipe purchase in case you wanted another pipe you could pick out the shape as well.Smokemaster+Bard+RJM+ad.jpg
