another update:

Ernie is doing a mild restoration on the cue. His advice was to change the ferrules and tighten or replace the joint, clean the Cortland wrap and that's about it and the owner agreed so will update the thread when I receive it back from him.

He confirmed that this was one of his first year ('63) cues and, in fact, one of the first approx 10 cues he ever built.

Having hit some balls with it prior to sending out I can confirm that this cue was entirely playable with a very impressive hit and should stay at least that good for quite a while, once Ernie is done.

Stay tuned.

Amazing cue. I am not a collector, so the value of absolutely original is lost on me. For a playing cue, most likely repairs were made along the way. I think you did the right thing by letting Ernie decide. As long as the Cortland is being cleaned and not replaced, I support the refresh. This is a great opportunity to have the work done by the original cuemaker. IMO, pool cues are built for playing pool and they should be kept in condition for doing that.

Thanks for the posts and the update.

Were cue balls some kind of phenolic/plastic when he used one for a ring, or were they ivory? I know billiard balls were ivory once, but not sure about pool...

Anyway, thanks for the pics of another part of history.

I don't think I ever saw an ivory cue ball, except for the larger ones used in Billiards. I do know that Ernie was always in the market for these balls and I sold him a couple a long, long time ago.

You couldn’t be more right

Restoring this cue makes is a old “new” cue. Absolute mistake.

It’s about as old as Gina cue gets.
Nice pole congrats

I know exactly when the Milne cue was made! I ordered it from Ernie in 1966. I owned Mothers
Family Billiards in Sherman Oaks,Ca and ordered the cue for a friend /customer Darryl Milne. In those years Ernies shop was a couple of blocks from the pool room. That was the start of a 50Plus year relationship with Ernie that has continued to this day. In fact I worked with Ernie for short period and was lucky to learn many things about making pool cues. He was a great teacher!! I use that knowledge today making pool cues for select friends AND CUSTOMER. Great fun and very rewarding experience. Shoot Pool Not People !! was our slogan and still is.

barrymore...Not doubting you sir, but Ernie himself, after checking out the cue, said it was one of the first 10 cues he ever made, and was made in '63, rather than '66. Why do you suppose that is?

The Milne cue was made in 66. I bought the pool room in 65 Aug. Maybe Ernie made others but that one was made in 66!!

He also said he can't remember what he ate for breakfast that day....I just hope to

remember what I did 60+ years ago, or 57, or even 5...After so many cues, I am sure

they run together, Barrymore has the year he bought a pool hall, and knows the person

on the cue...Not saying neither is wrong, they are both probably right...The 60's.
