    This has been around before, and everytime I watch it I can't help but realize that they were punching these things out like model T's. When I see a 30's or 40's vintage Charatan come on the market and command a very high price, I wonder if it's the briar qualities, the relative rareness, or what exactly is driving the price.

    I realize that Charatan has always had many grades, but I have not studied the nomenclature of this era enough to know if it's easy to discern one from another.

    Judging one grade from another is fairly simple, but trying to figure out the age of certain Charatans is extremely difficult. They weren't as concerned about that when they made the pipes as Dunhill was.

    Fantastic. Never saw the video before.
    Have times changed or is that pretty much the way pipes are made today?
