Need Help Identifying Vintage Cue - 11-07-2018, 11:14 PM

Hello Everyone,

I recently acquired a nice, solid, vintage cue...It does not have any markings that I can see. It's 57" and about 20oz. I took pics and will share them as soon as I figure out how to do so Lol...Any help/info is appreciated.
Thank You!

I posted his pics.

Looks like possible Cortland linen. Nicely made. May not be an import. I can ID it myself.

Mali's were usually marked "MALI" on the buttcap. My guess is an ADAM.

I think the buttcap looks to be replaced...looks like newer, plastic-y material.

I'm going with early Mali (early ones may not have logo) a lower
model Adam, or a Viking.
The brass joint pin with sharp point is my clue.

Micrata ferrule maybe? It looks to be in too good of a shape to be yellowed from sun exposure, thing looks like it was made last week.

It’s an Adam when they were made in Japan I had the same model and it had a sticker.

That pointed brass pin speaks to Adam too.

This cue is very well preserved.

Another Adam guess. Pin looks the same as on my wife's 1970's Adam merry widow.

Mali I think.

Mali River sticker would have been on forearm.

Here is the pin and insert on one of mine for an example.

That's Delrin, as used on many good and high end cues. Balabushka, Szam, JW...many...

Interesting.

Then somebody put a Mali bumper on it?
