Gentlemen there is a well known saying about walking a mile in another persons shoes. There is an equally well known saying along the lines that people who do not learn from the past are condemned to relive it in the future or join strange religious/political cults. I have now concluded that we have reached peak insanity pricing for cutter top tobacco tins. At 5 AM this morning a tin of Capstan Navy Cut was knocked down for $470.00. This was the small tin and not the 4 oz tin which would have been about the right price for a good condition rust free cutter top 1/2 lb of Capstan. In the past I have turned them up from friends in London and given them out to a few of you to share on here and at your pipe clubs. I have to say I am shocked at the price people are prepared to pay to buy a potential tin of mummy dust. This leads me to wonder if this whole 'aging' tobacco is a marketing wiz and that any differences in the taste are purely in the mind of the consumer, placed there by some Svengali of a marketing guru. What say you guys?
