Thanks, Joe. It was suggested to me that I contact you as someone with plenty of knowledge and a good reputation. I'll like to pick your brain at some point. Unfortunately, I'll have to put this project aside until March as I'll be leaving this next week for a trip. We'll be in PA in March and I hope to gather some more info then, including photos.

Speaking of photos, I just saw for the first time photos of the Doc Frye cues owned by my sister's siblings. Holy moly! Those are some fine specimens, or at least they appear that way to me. I'll see if they're okay with me posting some photos.

This Frye is particularly interesting in that it combines a Padauk forearm with a contrasting black and silver back end. If that were not enough there is a bakelite material similar in color to the Padauk at the A-Joint. Very tasteful application and combination of natural and man-made materials.

This cue continues the usual theme but with interesting brown bakelite/catalin rings coupled with a rosewood forearm with minimal inlay.

TYPE... You would have loved being in Phila during the Doc era. Order a cue from him ...he would invite to his house at various times to see the cues progress. When the cue was done he would play pool with you and chat.
I had that pleasure over 50 years ago...the memories linger. He was great company.

That cue was Doc's classic design. I think the best person to restore that cue (if ever desired) would be Proficient Billiards.

I still have a few from this collection.... Like most from that time.. the use of these "new" materials were en vogue.. catalin, acrylic, etc... Catalin was actually around for quite a few years.

Trade opportunity: I am trying to fulfill someones collection. I need a Palmer Model I from the second catalog, and a Palmer 18, from the third catalog. If you have either of these, we can possibly do something.
