    Another Generous Gift: A Color Duke at Long Last

    Nice! The color lines started around 66-67 after KW came out with their white briar. By 1980 demand had let up but they put out a white Color Viscount model with the Olympic Logo then. Around 84-85 UST allowed them to write off the excess inventory and $100,000 worth of colored pipes were buried...

    Familiarty Breeds Contemp vs Variety is the Spice

    Rooster or Nite Owl?
