Hopefully I am not the first to tell you that Meucci doesn't/didn't always use the same exact veneers in each model. Because of that, it is IMPOSSIBLE to determine which line it came from based on veneer color.
To make matters more complicated, there is one additional line it could be from, besides the ones you listed:
- Meucci MO-7 (1980s - but would have block letter logo)
- Meucci M-6 (1992-ish)
- Meucci 95-11 (1995-ish)
- Meucci HOF-1 (1997-ish, still selling on meucci.com in 2008 online catalog)
Meucci Hall of Fame 1 Pool Cue - Meucci pool cue with a multi-color stained birdseye maple forearm with four ebony points with veneers. The butt is is ebony with ivorine windows. There are four sets of ivorine chain rings. The wrap is black lacquer. The joint is black phenolic with a 5/16 x 18 piloted stainless steel pin. This pool cue comes with your choice of red dot or black dot shaft.
Notice how they don't specify the veneer colors?
Here are a couple things you can do to help you narrow down whether its a Meucci M6 vs HOF-1 vs. 95-11:
- One thing you can do is to pull out the rubber bumper, and tell me what type of head is on the screw / weight bolt. Is it Allan-key or flat-head; or something else altogether (which would be odd).
- Look at the shaft - does it have either a red or black dot, or a black dot with a circle around it? If so, show us.
The answers to these will NOT provide a definitive answer, but can "suggest" leaning toward one or the other. (e.g. A shaft with no dots would allow you to lean toward a Meucci M6, but not definitively, since Meucci would make you a "no-dot" shaft at any time if requested).
I will tell you that regardless the version, the value will be almost identical. You won't fetch any more money if you sell it as one model or the other.
You MIGHT get a few more 10s of dollars if you have a Meucci M6 with the original receipt to prove it's age, but I am guessing you don't have it since you are asking this question. And even with that, the premium comes from the fact that the original receipt exists, and not the fact that it's from any specific one of those 3 lines.
I do see a HOF-1 with a green veneer but no orange. But again, that is meaningless due the first point I made.
