    Were you planning on selling it ?

  2. user1564937066user1564937066 on 8/5/2019 4:20:16 AM

    Yes, but I was hoping to learn something about it first.

    It also came with a nice leather and wool carrying case.

    The forearm is an inexpensive European import. Likely Torino.

    The rest of it looks very Palmer/Paradise.

    Can we please see the end of the pilot and the end of the butt?

    I might be interested in it.

    I am not sure, but the 76 on the shaft could be a reference to when it was made.

    There were a lot of cue makers that used similar styles when making cues. This looks like maybe someone like Karl Meyer.

    Just looking at the cue it has a nice style but without having it in my hands it is hard to really judge the quality.

    Hope this helps out.

    Let me know if you decide to sell the cue.

    I agree, Meyer is a possibility.

    I really want to see that shaft pilot and the weight bolt.

    76 could be the year it was made...or not. Hard to say.

    I would say it is probably US made using a European forearm for a blank.

    Thanks everyone for all the information.

    Here are two more pictures of the cue and a few more of the case:

    How much are you thinking ?

  8. user1564937066user1564937066 on 8/12/2019 5:13:03 PM

    I don't know if this cue is worth $10 or $100. I was hoping to learn about the cue and the case.

  9. user1564937066Chopdoc on 8/12/2019 7:51:22 PM

    It needs a new ferrule. The rings need to be repaired which will include refinishing the whole cue.

    I would pay $100 for it, but at that point the value is probably exhausted.

    Some cue makers and cue repair guys might not even want to touch it. Although the shaft is maple, it looks like the forearm is made from ramin wood and some don't want to deal with it. Cheap wood is the hallmark of cheap cues. That's why I say the forearm was sourced outside the US. Most likely Europe, if not Asia.
