    Hello All,

    I'm new here and this is my first post. I have only been a pipe smoker for 2 years and am still experimenting with different pipe brands, styles and tobaccos. Which is what makes it so interesting, I suppose.
    What prompted me to write today was I was in a general store that is best described as a fading supermarket-down-on-its-luck kind of place, and in amongst the bric a brac was a display case that held a few pipes.
    There was 3 Big Ben, short, bent types and 2 Montanas. These 2 were what took my interest, both are dark red with straight stems made of bakelite. One is a billiard shape, the other pot/apple. I have no idea how old they are, but they appear to have been there for many years.
    Having trouble researching anything about Montana on the web - does anyone here know anything about them? The only marking on them is 'Montana Holland'.
    I have a photo of them, but don't seem to be able to load one up here.

    Welcome to the forum, Saracen.

    I have heard of the Big Ben pipes, and they are a decent pipe form what I read. Montana pipe I have never heard of, but that does not mean anything.

    You can use photobucket to upload your photos to the forum.

    Welcome! Montana pipes ehh? The only Montana pipes I'm familiar with are Mark Tinsky's pipes

    Amsmoke.com

    Great pipes, sooooo underpriced!

    I guess if you checkout the pipe visually and maybe pass a pipe cleaner to test the airway alignment, it may be a bargain! Never know til ya smoke her!

    Thank you all for the welcomes!
    I will try to upload the pictures later. Still can't find anything on the web fr Montana - perhaps they're a brand name of Royal Dutch, similar to Big Ben?
