Vintage Brunswick Cue, Gold Crown? Age, Value?

Vintage Brunswick Cue, Gold Crown? Age, Value?

Looking for more information on this Brunswick pool cue.

It appears to have the Brunswick Gold Crown logo in a see through window in the butt sleeve end. The cue is in great shape.

But I can't seem to find anything about this cue.

I see the same Gold Crown logo affiliated more with bowling equipment and billiards chalk and some professional pool tables from 50 years ago.

The case appears aged a bit but is also in great shape.

    Your Brunswick pool cue is from somewhere between 1975 and 1985.

    It's made from "Indonesian hardwood" with "pearlized and hardwood inlays". They feature a brass-on-brass joint and a ramine wood shaft.

    They are considered to be a lower-quality cue because of the quality of construction and the materials used. For example, ramine is generally considered a poor-quality wood stock for a pool cue shaft

    I don't have the exact catalog it's from (nor could I find it in the Brunswick Billiards archives), but here's a very close one from the same era. This is from the 1982 catalog. It's also in the 1977 and 1981 catalogs.


    In terms of value, the cue isn't worth much. I would put it at somewhere between $40 and $70.

    In fact, a few of this exact Brunswick cue model sold recently on eBay. Here's one that sold for $61 at the end of January 2020:


    And looking at currently active eBay listings, we see a set of 3 Brunswick cues, from related 1970s / early 1980s Brunswick cue series. They are for sale right now on eBay for $175, and they won't likely get that much.


    Here's another similar Brunswick cue (basically the same as yours, save for a few insignificant details), and it is for sale for $175 on eBay right now. Again, they won't get this much for it.

    Wow, thanks so much for the detailed information on the Brunswick cue.

    I saw that eBay post for $175 and thought that seemed high. I actually picked this up at Goodwill for $2 thinking I'd let my kids use it in the basement, then looked closer and it seemed fairly nice.

    Maybe I'll just keep it around and use it when I play the occasional game.
