Cue ID - Maybe a Brunswick, Rich Q, or Adam Cue?

Cue ID - Maybe a Brunswick, Rich Q, or Adam Cue?

Does anyone know who made this pool cue? I picked it up in Joplin, MO based off a blurry picture, a hunch, and a long trip.

There's no logo per-se, but it does have an orange circle (or red circle) with a silver circle inside that.

I learned there is a "Blue Book of Cues", but north of $3000 to buy, and it's just out of my budget for this week.

Any help with identifying this cue is greatly appreciated!

    I have the Blue Book of Pool Cues, but it's 1000 pages long.

    Help save time and let us know what your hunch is/was?

    From the butt and windows, it resembles a Rich cue.

    From the string inlay, a Brunswick cue.

    Note the little circular windows with silver and red. I've seen them on a very old Meucci cue once.

    I'm lost. Any help?

    Yeah I certainly see the resemblance—especially to Brunswick and Rich cues—but I don't recognize it.

    It'd be cool to see the full joint pin and insert separately if you have time to do a few quick photos.

    Here is a photo of the joint:

    It's been suggested by some folks I've shared photos with, that it's an inexpensive import cue, most likely from Taiwan in the 1970s or 1980s.

    I have no thoughts on that one way or another, and have no supporting documentation to verify (or reject) those claims, but I wanted to pass along the info anyway.

    It's disappointing if these opinions are accurate. If the cue is a cheap import from Taiwan I would expect to see more of them in the market. The woodwork appears to be more East-European.

    Either way, it's one if my keepers. Is well balanced with a solid hit.

    Thanks for your time, knowledge and wisdom.

    Anyways, still very curious. If anyone has any further input in this piece, it will be greatly appreciated. Here are a few more photos.
