Old Cue Identification


Old Cue Identification

Any ideas who this might be made by from anyone out there? Have already tried the two makers that were said to have made this and they both said it's not theirs. No markings. Wrap was redone although I didn't think to have them check for markings under the wrap until after. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Can you let me know which cue makers you have ruled out so far?

    Any other info you can provide on the pool cue such as when and where you got it, etc. would be of help in identifying the old pool cue. e.g. in the title you call it an "old cue", so if you could share what it is that is suggesting to you that it is an old cue, and also how old you think it is... it may help.

    Is there a screw where the butt cap would normally be? If so, try looking in there for any markings.

    Removed the buttcap at the suggestion of my friend who's a cue maker, but no markings in there either.

    I've owned the cue for about 15 years. Was sold to me as a Richard Black. Emailed him a picture YEARS ago and he said it wasn't his. Showed it to a cue collector's booth at a tournament in Vegas close to 10 years ago and he told me it was a Huebler and made me an offer for it on the spot, which I didn't take (obviously). Thinking it's made somewhere around the 70s or 80s, but just guessing.

    A friend also says it looks like the butt part had been replaced at some point because the material in the windows are ivory and the bottom isn't. I've also heard (don't remember from who) that the rings look like they've been replaced as well. I've asked a lot of people about this cue over the years but am trying to finally figure it out so I can possibly sell it.

    The design looked so familiar... but I found what I was thinking of and it's not it...

    I was thinking that your cue has a very similar butt sleeve design as the famous Larry Hubbart Meucci cue here:

    I also was thinking it looks like it has been put together from parts.

    Anyway, I will keep my eyes peeled and if I come across anything for you I'll definitely let you know. Hopefully you'll do the same if you get it figured out as well.

    Was thinking Meucci as well at first purely because of the rings, then I saw a Huebler with similar design in the windows on blue book but a Huebler collector assured me that it's not. Guess I'll keep trying and hoping someone on here leads me in the right direction.

    Thanks for all your help!
