I wonder why they'd not consider a run of something like the 81.  Perhaps their main buyers (still drug stores, sans CVS) want only 'standard' shapes.  It's not radical though, I'd love to see one of the d/c shapes like the author again.

I know I would love to see them re make the # 81 with the fancy stem but with the spade in it, Why in the world did they make these Royaltons without there trade mark spade? G'Day Gents

How do they decide what shapes to discontinue and which to keep.  Also, how difficult would it be to start producing a previous shape?  Would love to see some of the out of production classic shapes of yesteryear.

81, 25, 85 would all sell as well as many other discontinued shapes. If they made a run of some old shapes like an 81 as Royaltons before those are gone too, or introduce a limited return of the Eldorado or Emperor sans coupons, they could charge whatever and there would be people to buy them.
