ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY. OWN A COLLECTION OF SMOKING HISTORY. I DEVELOPED THE DUGOUT SMOKING SYSTEM in 1977 and filed for a US patent on August 21st, 1978. The system was granted a US Patent on July 29th, 1980, Patent number 4,214,658 (see attached). Having decided that these items should be seen not stored awaypresenting a rare opportunity for the True Collector, or Retailer, who would like to establish an incredible display in their store. This type of display would set your store apart from any other. The true collector would have bragging rights by having all the first release of these items.
