Please help identify my Palmer window cue. It has nice points but no colored veneers within. It has inlays similar to a Catalog 3, Model 14 Palmer cue.

This cue has a longer butt section like the Catalog 2 and 3 models, with no bumper inserted, a stainless steel joint into a brass receiver, with a 5/16" x 18 thread pin, and an attached ferrule (not a screw-on ferrule).

A local top shooter who collects Palmer Cues brought in his Catalog 3 Model 14 cue to compare with. He believes this is a custom-ordered Palmer Cue made using a Palmer blank, not a catalog cue.

But the length of this cue is substantially shorter than his, measuring under 57 1/4". Does this indicate a production date during the 1960s rather than the 1970s (produced during the Catalog 2 time-frame rather than the Catalog 3 time-frame)?

Could this be a prototype for the Palmer model 14 cue?

What about an estimate for it's production year?

Your insights are appreciated!

    I have the same Palmer cue. It is from the 3rd catalog, cue number 14.

    If you want to sell it, I'm interested. I could also trade - and give you a nice Tag Heuer watch and a Movado watch for it.

    This is the one I have:

    How many inches long does your Cue measure?

    Is there colored veneers in the points or no color like mine? (your photo is a bit blurry)

    Your cue is a standard Model 14 cue produced after 1972. Palmer Model 14 cues were produced with at least three different forearms. All were delivered with rubber bumpers. Yours is simply missing.

    Palmer cues could be ordered in specific lengths. I've seen some as short as 52" and as long as 60". An original should have a butt and shaft of equal lengths. Shafts that are longer or shorter than the butt to which they are presently paired, were either ordered after initially delivery or are simply mismatched to that particular butt.

    What would you take for your Palmer Model 14 pool cue?

    I pay cash or PayPal.

    I do not negotiate on public discussion forums.
