Everyone, thank you for the replies! It's my hope that this initial conversation leads to concrete facts!
I'm still in the middle of my research, don't have much to add just yet, as this cue is shrouded in mystic and mystery. But, I have a good feeling that this tread will answer some of the long held questions!

If anyone has some good pictures of 360's or 360 inspired cues, post up, so we all can have something to drool over till some facts are uncovered.

That cue was in an article in Billiards Digest. The case was the really unique thing, and they had no idea who had built either the cue or case...but surmised that it was a master builder.

I would love to see that article.

I saw the original estate auction. Watched it intensely.

There was fairly substantial provenance provided.

The 36 was and is a beautiful cue but to be honest, I'm a little more intrigued by the hub cue. Does anyone have one intact?

Man, I knew when I decided to go down this rabbit hole it would be a challenge (one of the reasons I wanted to do it) but there is very little info available. I still have a couple of sources that I'm waiting on emails back from. When I find anything new I'll post up. I want to thank everyone that has contributed! Still got tons of unanswered questions, but I'll get there, just wanted to keep everyone updated.

I know of one that is intact, he recently contacted me about my 360 quest. I know he has seen this tread, but dont know if he wants to post it. I'll ask him too, if not, maybe he can send me the pics and I'll start another thread with it.

When I started down this research road, had no idea it would be this difficult. Good things come to those that wait... I hope!
Got a few emails out to various people/company's, just waiting on response. If anyone has any info, or a good reference for me to talk with, I would very much appreciate it.

Lets see some more pics!

I've sent out quite a few emails about the 360's and it seems nobody has any more info than has already been posted in this thread. If anyone can point me in a direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Feel free to PM, if you don't want anything public, I will keep it for my own knowledge. I just want as much info on this awesome cue as possible.

And... check out this monster from the master! http://www.blackcues.com/more_functional_art/2017.shtml

just clicked the Richard Black link , I'm now paying attention.
actually , I also viewed the 360 and it's case , first time I've seen it , did anyone notice the quality of the red velvet lining.
is it also true the maker of the cue cannot be or has not been identified?
hard to believe.
thanks for all the post's and links , this has been a treat.

I bet the shoots a ton.

I appreciate your dogged determination.

Numerous people have dug in this hole before and it might be assumed we know all that we ever will. But it never hurts to look again. You never know when something important that was long forgotten will be re-discovered.

I've found records of the 36 / (360) being sold as early as 1898 for $10.00

At that time, for 50 cents more, you had the option of having the grip area cut in one of four ornamental styles....
Style E
Style G
Style H
Style J
