thanks!! - 01-11-2019, 04:09 PM

thanks for posting up pictures to share. we love seeing fancy classics by all time greats. I really enjoy the rare ringwork above the handle...and the different design elements on the butt sleeve.

The leather wrap is especially unique as it's not a typical as the linen wraps. Great find for sure.

Congrats!!

Surprisingly I have never been a big fan of Bushkas, Szambotis or a lot of other cues that will always be a gold standard. I'm not a big time collector is probably why. They're great pieces of cue making history for sure, just like vintage cars. That being said, I really like this particular Bushka. To the extent if I was a collector I would probably over pay for it, as opposed to buying a fancier cue at a slightly better price. If that makes sense.

There will always be "closet find, bought from a widow...etc" cues and I have always been curious what peoples thought are on how individual pieces of rarely seen or even never before seen cues effect the rest. The reason things of any nature bring a premium is supply and demand. The demand for Bushkas or Szambotis will never really dwindle, but the supply can only increase. Barry probably knows to a T how many cues his dad made and what they were but is there a definite number on how many George made? Its not often that new ones pop up but it happens, and probably always will in the people reading this' lifetime. Obviously the current market value of something that will never be produced again is based off what is out there. If I have a "one of a kind" cue and another one comes up its value goes down. Will the price of cues from yesteryear ever go down when more and more come to light

I don't think I could own a cue like that and not want to "test hit" with it everyday for hours at a time.

Beautiful cue! Congratulations.
