This thing is old as dirt, but I think it would be sweet for a conversion. If it can be saved at all. Anyone have an idea on age? Guessing early 1900's.

I'm not a cue expert by any means. Now that that's out of the way.....

I can't imagine any circumstance which would make that cue worth more than $20 in the shape it's in.

With two shafts. Before I had the wrap replaced, it looked almost exactly like the pictures - except by comparison, mine is in much better shape. I bought it from the best player in Vallejo, CA in about 1966. Mine has two shafts. One is narrow and is a little crooked at the joint. The other is maybe 12.75MM or so and is straight. It has an ivory ferrule, ivory joint and ivory at the butt. Someone told me that it was a "Schmidt", but it has no markings on it.
