The first pic shows inlaid dot over the point veneers. Sign of low end import

Cannot tell if it's bad lighting or bad workmanship.

Post more pictures of the points and inlays.

Maybe it's just the picture, but the wrap looks as thick as anchor line

Show pics of the pin and shaft pilots

It's from the Helen Keller series, inlays by the blind.

Looks like the black rings behind the joint are black linen phenolic and the same on the shafts are a non linen black plastic. Looks like the sleeve has non linen as well. Interesting.


Design is a fingerprint of the mind....

Yeah, it's an import... from a far and exotic land called New Jersey.

My guess is it came from one of two NJ guys, and was jazzed-up in the aftermarket due to Palmer-envy

If there are no veneers and the inlays are reasonably clean and symmetric, I'd have to say that it's just a super-nice example of Karl Mayer's work.

Some of his cues can be on the tacky or gaudy side, but this one is really attractive.

Check out the joint screw- I believe that Karl Meyer used a 5/16 18 piloted joint screw- at least he did on one that I owned. also, many of his cues were located in the PA. / NJ/ NY areas.

I'd put a smooth black leather wrap on this thing, change the tip, and try to play with it.

Man, do I really like this cue.
