    Hey all,

    I found this article from the NY Times going back to 1964. It was a glorious time for pipe smoking!

    A clerk at the Dunhill tobacco and pipe, shop on Fifth Avenue pointed to 22 fullā€grain root briar pipes on the wall. The pipes, at $35 each, are the shop's prize product.

    How much is $35 in 1964 dollars worth?
    Year Equivalent
    2019 $284.57

    Not cheap, but a bargain by today's Dunhill prices.
