Identify/Value This Meucci Original Cue?

Identify/Value This Meucci Original Cue?

This is my personal cue that I have had for 30+ years. I believe I purchased in late 80’s but don’t really remember precisely when.

I am really just curious if it has any more value today than when purchased all those years ago. If I had to guess, I probably paid $150-200 for it then.

It is definitely used, but still in excellent condition.

Thanks for any help!

    I have to dig deeper, but at first glance, yours appears to be a slightly newer version of either:

    1. Meucci MO-2 pool cue - 1970s

    2. Meucci 84-1 pool cue - 1984

    Yours is in amazing shape, and seems a bit newer (i suspect it has a stainless steel joint (not a brass one).

    Should command between $300 and $500 I would think.

    Thank for the response! Here is a picture of the joint. It looks brass to me, at least the female end.. Hopefully that helps pinnit down a little more.

    Interesting. Could the pin have been replaced? Meucci used brass joint pins on it's oldest cues, and those can help narrow down the date range, but your pin looks to be stainless steel, indicating that it might more likely be the 84-4.

    Also, those smaller pill-style rubber bumpers often cracked and got replaced. Do you know if your flat-style rubber bumper is the original? If so, that also dates it as newer (if you know for sure it's not been replaced, etc.).

    One last thing you can do to help date a Meucci Originals cue, if you know it's the original plug, and if you have a precision measuring device, is to pull out the rubber bumper and measure the diameter of the plug. In the style of plug you have, there were two sizes used by Meucci over time, and this can be used sometimes to rule out certain models.

    • 1980s bumpers are about 3/4" .750 (See top portion of photo below)
    • The newer Meucci cues use .675 (See middle portion of photo below)

    Meucci Originals used brass pins only when they ran out of stainless. So, even the earliest Meucci Originals commonly have stainless pins, only some have brass.

    The Meucci cues sold out of the Huebler shop had brass pins, but they were made by Huebler.

    Yes, agreed, but brass pin usage did end at a point in time, after which only stainless steel pins were used (as far as I know, but I don't know exactly when). With this information, you can deduce that if a cue has a brass pin, it is one indicator, among others, which can be used to put a cue in a time-frame, or to at least say it's from line x, y, or z, especially in cases where designs were carried over into newer models in newer lines.

    I can say for certain that this cue was purchased new by me and has not ever had any work done or any parts, the bumper replaced.
