Hillcrest, fad ended around 1960, a 60 year run is pretty good. They are not offered anymore that I know of. I even shopped old pipe shops that did it, asking if they had any silver letters, or numbers still laying around. Some checked, and I got a resounding, NO.

Are the letters/numbers on the bowl silver? Thanks for sharing these. Looking forward to any more you put up. This is very interesting.

Interesting and attractive. I started smoking a pipe while in college in the early 70's. Even then, though, pot pipes were probably more common than tobacco pipes.:LOL:

I've come across 2 in the wild that I can remember off hand. The first was a heavily smoked Kaywoodie with fraternity letters. The letters weren't silver though - seemed to be acrylic or bakelite maybe.
The other was a large Comoys apple with a T and '45.

Interesting... there is a 1940 Boston U Kaywoodie, as well as two Comoy Apples (also Boston U) Class of 1934 and 1937 in this stash.

I remember seeing one of these about 20 years ago, A friend of mine, now deceased. brought in a large pipe, say 8" long, that had silver just like yours did. For the life of me I can't remember what lettering it had on it nor the numbers. I had never heard of a "class" pipe until you put up this thread.
