Old Unknown Cue with Stainless Steel Joint


Old Unknown Cue with Stainless Steel Joint

I am trying to identify this old pool cue with a stainless steel joint.

It has no markings and looks old.

Any help?

    I'll look in the bluebook of pool cues. It looks like a Frank Paradise cue or an Abe Rich cue.

    100% for sure it is a Valley pool cue. It does not resemble a Paradise or Rich cue in any way.

    Here is the Valley cue catalog from 1972:

    @user1524770586, I would say you are bang on. The features are identical.

    I don't see the Valley logo on this one though. Wonder if they are made by some other big cue manufacturer? Do you have any knowledge on that?

    Most of the big pool table brands (including Brunswick) had their cues made by the big cue manufacturers of the day e.g. (Dufferin out of Canada, Schmelke, etc.).

    The logos were all stickers, they come off.

    I believe these cues have also been found branded as Brunswick, JC Penny, Sears, and Imperial...and likely one or two others.

    I do not know exactly who made them for sure but I do believe Valley made them. Remember, at one time they were well known for making very good house cues, the Valley Supreme., which at one time was a very good house cue that rivaled Dufferin.
