    It is a Palmer PB-5 cue from the Palmer PB series, circa the 1980s (or late 1970s).

    I don't really consider them "Palmer Originals" as they were from after Palmer's move to "full production" cues, but they are indeed from the original "Palmer Billiard Corporation" of Elizabeth, NJ.

    They were manufactured by Adam Japan under the design specifications of Peter Balner. They were quite popular and are of a high production quality (for that time period).

    From the Palmer PB catalog:

    Palmere PB-5 Cue

    Features of this attractive model are many: genuine 4-prong Macassar ebony inlaid butt is accented with four custom-dyed veneers, stainless steel joint buffed to a mirror finish trimmed with black fibre and wood inlays, genuine green spec Irish linen pressed and polished for that all-important feel, and a decorative arrangement of inlays above the delrin bun cap make this cue stand out in our line.

    What would a Palmer PB-5 pool cue be worth, in fair condition?

    @joakr69,

    It is hard to put a value on the cue without more detailed photos and more accurate info on its general condition.

    I may be interested in purchasing this cue as I like the old-school 4-point spliced cues.

    If you are interested in selling it, you may contact me at:
