    Not sure.

    Stylecraft came to mind, but that's a guess. Possible US made but possible Asian import.

    The pin in shaft joint should ID it.

    In any case it isn't a "high end cue" and does not resemble anything highly desirable or collectible so likely isn't worth much.

    .

    Could you give me a idea of what to look for on the joint pin?

    I'm new to this. LOL.

    Show me a close up of the joint pin.

    Look at it's size and thread count. Is it pointed or round. What material is it made from? Brass vs. stainless steel for example.

    The fact that the pin is in the shaft is much less common. Only a couple of higher end cue makers ever did that. Burton Spain was one of them. And it's in a pilot. Very unusual.

    It's possible that the pin belongs in the butt and is just stuck in the shaft as well.

    Here are a few pictures. One of the joint on the butt, and a few more of the joint pin.

    Does they help at all?

    Since there is a threaded brass insert is sure looks like the pin originally was in the shaft and not the butt. So it is original.

    But I am stumped. I don't know that joint pin configuration. I don't remember seeing it before.

    I have not bought the cue yet.

    The guy wants $60 and doesn't know anything about the cue.

    I want to start collecting pool cues here and there but I am still learning a lot about vintage cues.

    Do you think it is worth $60, or not really?

  7. RubiconChopdoc on 9/24/2019 5:27:09 PM

    I wouldn't pay $60 for it. It's what I have for years called a "$35 pool cue".

    At a garage sale or flea market it's worth $10-$20. On a good day, $35.

    Sometimes a cue like that can bring more on eBay when someone thinks he knows what it is... but usually they are wrong in my experience.

    You want to collect cues?

    Do you have any ideas on what type of cues you are after? Old cues? Custom? Other? Any idea at all?

    Generally I say to collect what you like. Do you know what you like? Do you have price ranges in mind? How much are you willing to put in a cue?

    Feel free to ask here about any cue. The "lucky finds" are few and far between even for those of us that know what we are looking at. But by all means keep looking and learning. And again, feel free to ask here.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    For the most part I seem to be interested in anything vintage (cars, beer ads, pool tables, pool table lights and d├ęcor etc.), so vintage pool cues are probably what I want to collect the most.

    For the past year I have been buying, refurbishing, and selling a lot of vintage pool tables which has been a lot of fun. That's kinda what has led me to now wanting to collect vintage cues.

    I know a lot more about vintage pool tables than I do about vintage pool cues so I have a lot to learn.

    I recently read up a lot on Abe Rich and now I think I would like to find one of his old cues.

    Abe's cues are relatively inexpensive and not hard to find.

    His nephew has been selling of the remaining cues on Ebay.
