My new Anniversary; A real barn find!!! - 10-27-2012, 06:14 PM

I think we all can search our youth, and buried therein lies our own personal version of a Red Ryder BB gun. Since I saw my first Anniversary in the early sixties, this illusive table has been mine.

It's taken me almost exactly fifty years for my dream to come to fruition, but I have to say the wait was well worth it.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Steve from http://www.coloradopooltables.com/ for sourcing such an exceptional, nine foot, drop pocket example, and for an equally superb installation.

I consider the Anniversary to be arguably one of the finest tables ever made, and this table is just simply a pristine surviving original. Installed since new in a single private residence, I am now the 2nd owner. It's just as nice as the photos show, and aside from some new blue/green Simonis 860 and Steve's complimentary upgrade to the best Artemis cushions, this table honestly presents as nearly new; right down to the perfect original leg decals by the Model DC impressions.

The move from Orlando to Denver was not easy, but let it snow, let it snow!!! I'm one happy camper!!!

Thank you again, Steve! Name:  DSC_10071.JPG

And you're right Bob, what a beautiful table that is and always will be.

I think anyone in their right mind would die to have one that is as great a condition as yours is now. Me knows that I would.

Looks like you have plenty of space to make a nice rec room around that table. Get at her.


To play Pool, is to suffer.
To learn to be a better player, is to find some meaning in the suffering.

The pool hall down the street from my house has 4 of them. Nice place
