The thread about $1000 pipes got me thinking about a newer phenomenon, expensive "collectible" tobacco. This market seems to be growing, with any of a number of tins going for $100 to $500 each. And with the recent exit of McClelland, their tins a currently going for 3-4 times retail, and will likely go for much more than that in a decade or so. Many of you are now sitting on tins that you paid $ for and could sell for $$$. Clearly, some of you are cashing in. Are you going to smoke your $$$ tins, stare at them with angst, or sell them? A pipe you can use repeatedly. Tobacco, not so much.
