    Easily #4 is more rare. I have only seen a few makeups in #4 in a few years but have seen, and own, a fair amount of Cigar. For shell usually the lighter the shade the more rare it is. That being said #4 is much, much, more rare than Whiskey.

    I'd be interested in all the #4 models that have been produced. I know of the following.
    Captoe Boot - TSM
    Wingtip Boot - TSM
    Atom - Leffot
    4x4 - LS
    Saddle - LS
    LHS - The Lakota House
    Tanker Boot - The Lakota House
    NST - The Lakota House

    There was a also a guy that posted some pics of a #4 Indy (with white stitching) but they have since been deleted. Not sure where those were from.

    Does anybody know of any more?

    I like these a lot, thanks for the pic. I almost bought these but hesitated and then of course my size sold out in no time :(

    That's a pretty good list, I do recall seeing a #4 Chukka on eBay a few months back. Don't recall who had it done.

    You guys can continue the discussion on rare shell's as the conversation is really interesting. But I just want to say thanks since the consensus seems unanimous. As I've said before, this site hosts a rare community. The way folks jump in and help me and my fellow rookies is nice and greatly appreciated.

    Always nice to start the weekend with a little whiskey. Like the socks as well. Nice combo.
