A friend forwarded this email to me (dtaed today) from Deb Osborne.  In case you haven't heard of it, I'll post it here:

"To mark the 200th Anniversary of the start of the ‘Second American Revolution’ of 1812, Dr Grabow has produced two Special Edition pipes, a straight pipe and a bent pipe with smooth and rustic variations.
The War of 1812, also known as ‘Mr Madison’s War’, finally came to an end in 1814 with the signing of the treaty of Ghent in which Great Britain and the United States of America mutually agreed the boundaries of
the then United States and Canada.

In effect, the Treaty resulted in Great Britain acknowledging that the United States of America was a truly sovereign and independent nation and one which was not to be treated lightly. Since that time, the United States and Great Britain have never again taken up arms against each other.

The war of 1812 also firmly glued together the then 18 American states into a united country which would subsequently and with confidence expand across the continent.

Dr Grabow is proud to produce these pipes marking this event from specially, hand-selected briar.

The pipes have a rich, deep, golden color, beautifully highlighted with a polished brass band. Each pipe comes in a presentation, faux suede, drawstring bag and each pipe will be stamped ‘FREEDOM 1812’.
Aside from the briar which we import from specialist briar harvesters in Italy and Greece, all pipe components are made in America by Americans-an 81-year Dr Grabow tradition.

The ‘Freedom 1812’ pipes will only be available for a limited period of time and will never be made again and they will not be sold through normal retail or drug store chains.

They are only available to our mail-order customers and we believe they will become collector’s items. Because we value you as a mail-order Dr Grabow customer, we are making these ‘Freedom 1812’ pipes
available to you at the special price of $29.50 for the smooth variants and $28.50 for the rustic versions.

If you want one or more please note it on the order form.
We are proud to offer these special pipes marking the 200th Anniversary of this important event in American history and we are confident that you will be equally proud to own them."

Got that today along with a price list and two copies of the "mail order letter"-- but no order form. Contacted Deb to see if she would send order form.

Direct from the factory.  Call Debra Osborn and I bet she'll send the info...I had a friend send it to me, not on the mailing list I suppose.
