Info on the Meucci 21-3 Factory 2nd Pool Cue
Aside from the one below with the obvious omission of blue paua-shell inlays in the butt sleeve, other common blemishes found in Meucci 21st century 3 factory 2nd cues is a blemish or imperfection in the paua-shell points or a blemish where the paua-shell points meet up with the white composite forearm material. Here are examples of these issues. Can you spot the problems? Both have blemishes with the points, and the first one is missing the white scroll inlays in the blue paua-shell as well.

It is a Factory Second and it is marked "Fact. 2nd" below the finish on the forearm. I had two of these, a 19.5 ounce and an 18.5 ounce. The 19.5 was recently sold and this is for the 18.5 ounce cue.
Meucci "Factory Second" pool billiard cues are perfectly straight and flawless playing cues but are designated 2nd's because of a cosmetic *anomaly. Whenever I sell a Factory Second, I will try to describe why I believe it was designated as such.
After my inspection I found this cue has several differences from the normal Meucci Century 21-3, which makes it UNIQUELY ORIGINAL and probably just 1 of several made this way - a real custom item:
The forearm is an imitation ivory color with 6 absolutely brilliant blue genuine Paua Shell deep-recessed points, as is normal on all Century 2 1-3 models - HOWEVER this cue does NOT have the scrimshaw etchings at the base of the points.
The butt sleeve on this normally would contain 6 blue Paua Shell windows. This cue has a plain Ivory Colored Butt Sleeve without windows, however it does have 2 detailed white bands with 24 separate 1/32 x 1/32 square aluminum inlays in each one as is normal on all 21st Century-3 models.
If this cue was not a second it would have an MSRP of $799.00.
Cream/white-colored composite material with black Meucci logo.
DIFFERS - Normally has six recessed blue paua shell points with white scrimshaw designs within it. However, in this Meucci 21-3 Fact. 2nd, it is just a white synthetic ivory butt sleeve, and like the standard 21-3 cue, the butt sleeve is encased by imitation ebony, aluminum, and black rings with aluminum veneer blocks. Ivory stained and silver rings at the top and base of the sleeve.
1" Polycarbonate Ferrule
DIFFERS - The forearm is a synthetic ivory with 6 absolutely brilliant blue genuine Paua Shell deep-recessed points, as is normal on all Meucci Century 21-3 models - HOWEVER this Meucci 21-3 Fact. 2nd cue does NOT have the scrimshaw etchings at the base of the points. Also, the words "Fact. 2nd" is stamped into the forearm (under the clear coating).

The two known cues of this variation had black Irish Linen. One had a weird swamp-green colored Irish linen wrap. These were offered for sale with wrap already installed, so the usual wrap customization options usually available for standard orders were not available for the factory 2nd versions as far as we know.
