If not for the Mail Pouch barns, I doubt I would have chosen Mail Pouch Tobacco as my topic for the Greetings From West Virginia issue. Over 20,000 barns could be spotted with the advertisement during the height of the campaign. While the Highway Beautification Act in 1965 restricted the placement of advertising near highways, Mail Pouch Barns were exempted, being deemed historical landmarks.

In a move to replace the Bevil Newsletter, the issue's article is now an integral part of the certificate.   Sleeved, the certificate appears as before, though when removed and unfolded, the full-color 2-sided certificate displays the article with photos.
