Authenticate a Josswest Cue 1995

Authenticate a Josswest Cue 1995

I came across this unique butterfly cue for sale.

The owner says it is a Joss West cue from 1995 and that Bill Stroud built 6 of these, each with different wood combinations, for a dealer named John Wright.

The cue is in need of a complete restoration and before I purchase it and take on this project I would like to get confirmation that this is in fact a Josswest cue as the seller claims.

I know there are people on this forum that are a lot more knowledgeable than myself when it comes to pool cues, so I thought I would put it out there for discussion.

    Tim, are there any numbers on that bolt? The photo is blurry.

    Thank You for your response concerning the Joss West cue I.D.

    The pictures were emailed to me by an out of state seller. I have not seen the cue in person. The seller said it was a Josswest weight bolt.

    I decided to pass on the cue, there were too many questions and he was asking quite a bit for the condition of the cue. It was a deal with big risk for little reward.

    I thought it was an interesting cue though.

    Always good to trust your gut on these things.

    The reason I asked is that if the Josswest cue was in fact made in 1995, it may well have a weight bolt with the year stamped in the head of the bolt.

    This is the Josswest logo guide I've put together (and there are others similar to this). Note the bottom left portion "1990-1995":
