Yes I have also heard that back in the day a person could order upgraded Centennial rails for his, or her Anniversary. Both look gorgeous to me. It seems like I have read somewhere that the Brazilian Rosewood that Brunswick used back in the old days is not even available today.

It seems to me that the log ban from Brazil occurred during the late 70's but might have been a few years later. Basically a Brazillian law was passed that BRW logs and raw lumber could no longer be exported. It has to be part of a manufactured item.

Since that period, it has also been placed on the CITES 1 appendix internationally (most restrictive)

I imagine you can see some loopholes. And there was a small backlog of inventories in the USA that took a time frame to work through as it quickly became ever-more expensive. It can still be found, and like other commodities that have always been valuable, from time to time some shows up somewhere. Unfortunately very little would be of a size or quality to face rails with, anymore. The trees are (were?) big 3-4' diameter, but very little gets to the US. Probably more is burned for pasture to grow beef. Though China has no qualms about buying it up when possible.
