My Antique 6ft Valley table

Hey guys! I recently bought an old 6ft Valley table for 140$ online! I have a hard time dating it as I can't find the serial number anywhere. The table has been modified as it is missing the coin box (removed and replaced with plywood). It was located at the bottom left of the table.

I decided to change the bumpers and redo the felt. View pics below of before, and after. This was my first time "restoring" a table. The K-66 bumpers were a bit bigger than the originals, but it works. Anyways one problem I got was that this table seems to have been buitl for antique 2" balls. I didn't realize and bought new 2 1/4" balls. The corner pockets ended up being 3.75 in wide! Not very forgiving but playable, especially considering the smaller 6ft table.

I found a similar one online for sale, with the black corners, says it's 1950s.

Here is a last pic of finished product!

Any comments, tips or thoughts welcome! Any guesses as how much it would be worth? I'm definately keeping it, but it's interesting to know!

Cool piece. We used to call 6ft. Valleys "titty-bar" tables 'cause the only place we ever saw them was in the Dallas strip-joints. ;)

Hahaha I unfortunately have no plans on turning my garage in a strip-joint! Thanks for the fun fact.

During the Johnston City dayz....I saw my first one when I was 19 in my early college years. The men back then didn't call it a bar box....they name it a ''cracker box''. Real difficult to run an 8 ball rack due to all the congestion/traffic :).
