    It's hard to give you a value of a Palmer PM-10 cue without seeing it. A major factor in determining how much a particular cue is worth is it's condition.

    Is this the Palmer model you are talking about?

    There seems to be a lot of these on the market... There are a few sellers with a bunch "new old stock" Palmer PM-10 cues (unsold, un-used, brand new) for sale right now.

    Looks to be about 15 of them on eBay at the moment. All seem to be over-priced - 11 of them are listed at $700 "or best offer" (from eBay user southeast-surplus)

    Another two are listed as an auction with "buy-it-now" price of around $350 I think (from eBay user n_burbr_ttoyj7x). Only one has bids so far. It's at $245 currently, and may get bid to about $300 - $350 perhaps? Or it may not.

    But, you should watch for an answer from @Type79 if he happens to stumble upon this question. He's an expert on these cues and watches the market very closely. If he answers this question, I would take that answer as gospel.

    Wow! I’m impressed with your answer and all the information on the Palmer PB10 cue.

    I have seen all of the ones in your research. I have a bid on one of the less expensive. The auction doesn’t close for 5 days so it may go up. I’m trying to determine whether pursuing it worth it or not. The information you have provided will help me decide.

    Thank you very much. What a great resource you have been.

    It wasn't long ago that Palmer PB and PM series cues struggled to sell for more than $200, regardless of condition.

    So I’m curious why that is? Are they not true Palmers?

    Any insight you can give me would be helpful.

    The PM and PB series are true Palmers but were production cues made to their specifications by Adam of Japan.

    There have been a spike in selling prices in the last year for reasons not entirely clear to me. I see three possible reasons.

    1. One could be that being cues produced at later dates than the classic style Palmer cues, a later generation of players are now seeking them.
    2. Another factor could be that close to 100 New Old Stock or excellent condition examples have been available. All have been marketed by the same seller who has held firm on the higher than usual prices. NOS anything has a special appeal and a corresponding premium.
    3. A third factor could be that new collectors being unfamiliar with Palmer cues in general have paid high prices for them mistaking them for earlier cues.

    This is all pure speculation as I have nothing concrete to come to a conclusion although I have communicated with recent buyers who have bought them for reasons one and three.

    That’s great news. I appreciate your input and time.

    I offered the seller $250 to close it out. He countered with $375, or wait for auction conclusion. I’m going to wait and see what happens there. It does seem there is an abundance of this same Palmer PB-10 model. I’ll wait.

    But I really appreciate your assistance. Good luck in your future.
