I own a Zenith coin operated pool table for 15 years. I have not been able to find any info on this table. other than the sticker on the side that reads Zenith United Billiards Incorporated Union, New Jersey. Anyone ever heard of this brand and might know how old it is and what a value might be. Its a coin operated, it takes a quarter to play, and has a solid slate top.

Did you do a Google search on the table? There are a few coin oped distributors that may have some info.

Any chance we can have a close up of the "Lenith United billiards incorporated Union" stamp?

Call them again and ask them if they can put you in touch with one of their old time employees. If they made them he would remember.

I believe this was a Zenith pool table. an advertisement for this table can be found on paperboynews website.

You are right. It was Zenith I think. And the Zenith ad on that site kevin listed is actually a United Billiards Ad.

Thank you for finding that info. Also how much do you guys think this table is worth?

I just saw an ad today for a similar United table for 1000 dollars. New quality built coin-ops generally start at around 2400.

Kevin is on the right track - the value of a billiard table is determined by three things.
- Demand for that type of pool table, which depends on...
- Rarity in the market for that type of pool table, which is determined by the number of sellers, and...
- Uniqueness and Condition of the table, which means "is it in good shape compared to what's available" and "is there any special significance to this particular table, such as having been played on by a pool great, or having been owned by a celebrity"
Your best arsenal is to find previous auctions for similar billiard table models, and judge from there.
As I've told many many owners, there is no "blue book" for pool tables as there is with automobiles. Especially antique pool tables or any older, out of production pool tables.

I have the same Zenith billiards table and can't find any information about it. I am just wondering if you found any more information on the pool table?
I didn't even know that the Zenith sticker was part of the pool table and I tried to take it off!

I have a "United Billiard Union New Jersey" 6' table , but it does not have the Lenith sticker. My table looks very similar to the picture . The condition of the table is "good" for the most part. I would like to replace the bumpers and pocket sleeves (red plastic) , but assume parts are hard to come by. Any suggestions?
- Jude on 3/3/2011 5:37:51 PM
How much is this exact Zenith coin operated pool table is worth today if its in very good condition?
The Zenith pool table I have was owned by Hydro Quebec before us.

We have a similar pool table to the coin operated United Pool table pictured (from an older post).
It has the United name on all 4 corners and also the name appears as United Billiards, Inc (and the logo too) near the area where the balls come out.
We are trying to find out some info on it and may want to sell it.
We inherited it from my dad. I think it is pretty old. The playing area is approx 32' x 64' with an overall size of approx 45' x 77' with a height of approx 31'.
It does appear to have been coin operated but the money thing was removed.
I am located in Buffalo, NY.
Does anyone know any table appraisers or anyone who could contact me with some help.
Please contact me either on this site or via e-mail below... or you can try to send me a private e-mail but I am new to this forum and not sure how that works.
