1970s Meucci Original Cue ID

1970s Meucci Original Cue ID

I have owned this Meucci Originals cue since the late 1970’s. It appears to be an MO-5 cue. It has not been used much as I also own a Meucci HOF-4 cue and that is my favorite.

Any thoughts on the value? It has no dents or dings in it at all.

    No. This isn't a Meucci MO-5.

    Yours appears to be a Meucci ST-4 cue, aka the "High-Run" model.

    The picture of the Meucci ST4 cue shows three tan blocks while mine has five.

    Are you sure it’s a Meucci Originals ST-4 cue?

    Can we see a clear photo of the forearm?

    It is likely a variation of the Meucci Originals ST-4 cue from the Meucci Starter Series.

    Yes, it has a higher quantity of narrower rectangular inlays than the standard Meucci ST-4 cue, and also has a white butt-cap (vs. the black one pictured in the Starter Series brochures).

    As far as my research has taken me, this specific model's design never made it into any of Meucci's main brochures or catalogs.

    It could be that it was a special model designed for one of their larger dealer retailers, like Cornhusker Billiard Supply (now Muellers) and Tucker Billiard Supply, to name just a few. Meucci made a number of exclusive (and lower-priced) designs for Cornhusker and others over the years, and those would only be pictured in older Cornhusker Billiard Supply catalogs (which I do not currently have access to). You can usually find the odd print ads in older cue sport publications, but I have not yet found anything depicting this model.

    However, don't mistake this to mean that it is somehow rare or more valuable.

    I'm not concerned about the value of the pool cue as I have no plans to sell it. I was just curious.

    Are you saying it is not a Meucci Original cue, even though it is clearly marked as one? Seems strange.

    No one said it wasn't a Meucci Original cue.

    I suspect that I wasn't clear enough in my answer when describing the bespoke models that Meucci Originals made for it's top dealer retailers. Let me clarify that.

    When you are a high-selling Meucci cue dealer, you can request a design that is exclusively sold through your company and no other dealers.

    Back in the day, Cornhusker Billiard Supply and Tucker Billiard Supply were two such retailers.

    Meucci Originals made exclusive cues for each, and even made entire lines of cues for these companies. Individual exclusive designs typically have the usual Meucci logo.


    However, cues from some of the exclusive lines (e.g. a series with multiple cue models) sometimes had additional branding.

    For example, the line that Meucci did for Tucker's had a "Tucker's Billiard Supply" stamp on them.


    Hopefully that clears up any confusion over my original answer.

    Note that I am NOT saying for sure that your model was an exclusive model for a retailer, I merely mentioned it as a possibility.

    I've learned over the years that Meucci is one of the worst cue companies for documenting their designs, lines, etc.. This has become even worse **since the internet has become mainstream and physical brochures and catalogs became a thing of the past for the most part*. There are very little standards used in the cataloging of both standard and custom cues at Meucci. Knowledge about individual cue models and special designs over the years is very sparse, and often lives (and dies) in the heads of former employees and dealers. It's a bit of a mess to be honest.

    OK that's my rant! Hope this all helps.
