It's funny. The shaft has so much follow. But draw....no.

Me too. This is an amazing Forum for finding people. Tony Conte from Chicago. That's all I know.

You can be sure I would give that cue every chance to be a player. Good find! Please do fill us in of the outcome.

Google for the catalogs...very interesting stuff

There's a 1938 2 piece cue with similar shaft. The veneered cue is similar. There were always custom cues not in catalog.

It's very possible, this cue belonged to a 3C player. Looks about right, several 3C old timers from the 30's, 40' in Bensingers in the early 60's still had this model of Brunswick cue.

Any of you guys ever here of, 'Roger Conte', French 3 cushion champion.

Butt below the wrap sorta looks oddly and marginally more red than the points. Wonder what’s under that wrap. Are the wedge and points veneers the Same width?

in person the veneer look the same on the points and butt. Light green and light purple is my best guess.

Any guess at around how much this cue is worth?

$1000 ish, I'd pay that much depending on if it is straight and solid


Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!
