That would explain why I couldn't spot it in my Falcon cue Catalog archives.
In general, the prices for used Falcon cues is somewhere near, or less than their original value. Said another way, There isn't much additional "collectible" value to them, in general.
Additionally, this specific one is an obscure model, and there wouldn't likely be any model-specific demand for it.
Thus, it would likely be worth somewhere around that same price today, give or take, only because it appears to be in like-new condition.
The only exception is the off-chance you find a Falcon cue collector and can convince them that:
- The info you received from Falcon Cue is correct, and
- The info received means that it's somehow "rare" and "collectible"
But even if you found such a person, they would most certainly want to know specifics around it being a Nick Varner model and why it didn't have the Nick Varner stamp on the forearm as his mainstream models did.
Either way, it's a cool find, a very nice pool cue, and an interesting tidbit of Falcon Cue history that I didn't know until now. Thank you for sharing it!
