Info on Dufferin "Silver Anniversary" Cue (and Others)

Info on Dufferin "Silver Anniversary" Cue (and Others)

I thought I would share some photos of some old Dufferin cues and maybe gather some info or be corrected.

The Dufferin "Silver Anniversary" cue appears to be early model and I was told it is a very early 1990s cue.

To the left is a silver leaf Dufferin cue with butterfly splice on all 4 sides and appears to be made from birds eye maple.

Please correct me if wrong.

I know they are not "valuable " but they are straight and vintage old Canadian made cues that I love for their simplicity and gorgeous wood.

I am surprised at variety of joints that aren't interchangeable coming from the same company. Is that because of different years they were made?

Thanks for any feedback

Are the butterflys on all 4 side rare?



I guess the butt cap fell off at some point, any ideas for replacement, are they universal.

I guess the butt is birds eye but not the shaft.

    Sorry I’m no help, but was always a fan of the early Dufferin cues. In Australia we didn’t have much of a selection at that time. We only had the 1-piece house cues, hi-runs usually, or the Eterna range, but occasionally would meet someone with a different version.

    You have a nice selection, I am keen to see some feedback as I have a friend with a similar type of silver leaf Dufferin cue as you have listed, except with the single butterfly cut. I am also curious on its history and value.

    Thank you for your comments.

    There are still a lot of vintage Dufferin cues for sale in Ontario. Lots of red leaf Dufferin cues especially. Silver leaf ones seem pretty rare. I've not seen green leaf Dufferins turn up to much either. Most people that sell old pool tables online in Ontario have old Dufferin cues with it that they will part with separately.

    That fact these cues are still straight going past 30 years of being used speaks for the quality of wood and cue.

    Hello @buteo!

    Do you have any interest in selling the Duffein Silver Anniversary snooker cue?

    I've been looking for one to replace one I had a long time ago!

    They are still making it but i'd like the original 1993 model...

    @jshowers, I'm sorry, but that is actually my playing cue now. Thanks for your interest, you have good taste.

    They pop up in Kijiji now and again, for anywhere from $70 to $180 CAD. I actually got one for $25 CAD a few years ago, sanded it down, and refinished it. The original finish was cracking all over, but it was a hidden gem.

    I never see Dufferin green leaf cues pop up (yet).

    OK, thanks @buteo, I will keep up my search on Kijiji.

    In the interim I ordered one from Dufferin (they still make 'them' but I'd like to get the original one again).

    Later, I did indeed find one on Kijiji, also with another Dufferin pool cue and some Dufferin chalk! If I bought the pair, as a collector, would you have any interest in the Dufferin pool cue?

    I am a Dufferin cue collector in Chatham Ontario.

    I have over 125 Dufferin cues here and not a single "green leaf". I know of a couple locally but they do not want to part with them.

    If the original person you were referring to does not want the Dufferin you have for the offer, I might be interested in it. However, I would like to ensure the other person gets the first dibs.

    You can email me at cueistic@gmail.com or contact me thru my website, cueistic.com.

    Thanks and have a great safe day out there!
