    You have a Meucci Originals MO-3 pool cue. This cue was part of Meucci's first full-series release which is now known and the "Meucci Originals" series (hence the "MO").

    They were first made in the 1970s and made for a good while after that.

    There are several variations of the Meucci MO-3, including, but not limited to:

    • The oldest MO-3 cues have a brass joint pin. later ones used stainless steel. Brass version, being older, are more rare and sought-after by collectors.
    • Some are inscribed with "Tournament Champion" on the butt cap - those were provided as prizes in tournaments back in the day.
    • Ones which still have the older "pill style" rubber bumper sell for a bit more if they still have that original bumper (vs. a replacement or newer "flat-style" bumper). Yours has the "pill-style" bumper.

    The original MSRP was $90 in the first catalog (shown below).

    There are a lot of MO-3 cues out there in really good shape so they aren't hard to find, but cues from this series are still generally sought-after. You won't have any issue selling it but this particular model doesn't fetch as much as the others unless it is in brand-new/unused condition with 2 or more original, straight, matching shafts.

    Some recent sale prices for the Meucci Originals MO-3 have been as follows:

    1. $217.50 - Feb 06, 2018 (one shaft, used but good shape)
    2. $127.50 - Dec 14, 2017 (one shaft, needed to be restored)
    3. $200.00 - Nov 19, 2017 (one shaft, used but good shape)
    4. $255.00 - Aug 21, 2017 (one shaft, used but ok shape, has pill-style bumper, sold with a porper case)
    5. $187.50 - Aug 23, 2017 (one shaft, used but good shape)

    Yours is in as-good or better shape than the ones listed above, except your shaft collar is in relatively bad shape. You can also see in just those few months there are a lot of them which had come up for sale, and the prices the sold for. Use that as a guide for value.
