And, not that it necessarily means anything, but that butt sleeve design was really familiar. If it's Helmstetter, here it is in more recent form, the 87-3 model. Obviously points, joint, etc, are different, so no conclusions. Not that it is a Helmstetter, but it more resembles it than not. I've left this picture huge, hope it downloads.

All the best,
WW

I'm guessing you haven't had the chance to see the press photos yet?

They have used other pins historically. even before the 3/8-10. There are some early cues out there.


I am not the guy that "owns" this cue. I am simply the one looking after it for the next guy. Please take care of your equipment.

Press photos?

As far as the pin, yes, he did different ones earlier. I have seen an early one with a 5/16x14 piloted.

Even later, at least into the 80's I believe different pins were an option. They offered stainless collars as an option and I believe also piloted 5/16x14.
