Commodores were kind of top-of-the-line but the Westbrooks, Viscounts and Belvederes are right up there in my book.

I'd add emperors and Eldorados to that too.

First thing you need to do Jim is learn which pipes were (are) regular production and which pipes where RJR coupon pipes.
Regular production pipes are-in order of highest price down (If I miss any guys add them to the list)
1-Eldorado
2-Commodore
3-Viscount.
4- Starfire and Golden Duke
5-Regal-Omega-Silver Duke-Viking
6-Royal Duke
7-Crown Duke
8-Grand Duke and Riviera
9-Duke and Lark
Not sure where the Savoy fits in but probably about the same as Royal Duke?
The painted Vicounts were the same price as the unpainted Viscount as were the Color Dukes.
I base all this on the prices shown on my Skyliner.
RJR pipes in another post unless somebody else wants to list them.

Very Happy

You'll find Rj's site most helpful.

Some things can be found here. Under administration is a thread with a link to a google page for this site. It's the best way to search our forum. The search built into the forum is lousy.
