    The empty spot in the middle is where the SWR goes...I just have to finish the pouch first. Its funny how one doesnt notice cobwebs in a dark room until a picture is taken...

    Nice collection. I really like that old H&H tin.

    Haven't tried out the Granger yet. It'll be in my next pipe though.
    Middleton's CB is one I always see at the shop, but I haven't pulled the trigger on it yet. I probably should.

    I got the H&H tin last summer at the flea market. They guy had a PA tin too, but I wasnt a fan of PA last summer, so I passed on it. A month later, I re-discovered PA, and have been buying tubs ever since...and also kicking myself for not getting that tin.

    Granger had me under the table, nicotine-wise. Cherry Blend is best in a cob, imo...

    I need to stalk around some of the many flea markets around here. I'd like to start an old-tin collection. Some of the old ads would be nice too.

    Was the Granger really that strong? I figured it would be similar strength to the other OTC burleys...I'll find out in a few minutes

    It was for me. Its a body chemistry thing, I reckon. I can smoke bowl after bowl of Royal Yacht...and that one is a notorious nic-bomb for some...

    I think its just the light. I have my pouch of SWR sitting right here, and the picture is identical...I could be completely wrong, however...

    Oh, it could be the heavy clear packing tape that i put over the image before cutting it out and gluing to the jar. I did that so the image wouldn't rub off as easily.
    Thanks for the complements Mayor! :)
