I am fairly certain that this cue is from the Helmstetter 97 series. Look at the top of page 114 in the Book of Pool Cues 3rd Edition. That cue looks very much, though not exactly, like the one on ebay. Also the story is pretty unlikely. More than $1,500.00 for a cue in 1977 was nearly unheard of.

that we had phenolic ferrules in 1977. I have seen that design before. Trying to place it ... Maybe $750 in 1977, not $1,700 though.

I was gonna guess Helmstetter as well, but the butt-piece throwded me off...I have seen a Gunn cue that was a good match too...

The sticker on the butt says Cornerstone. Couldn't find any info about it.

a friend of mine says that based on the joint screw, his best guess is a palmer, but he swears its not from 1977, and no one should ever have paid $1700 for any cue back then...

I'm not an expert on this stuff but my first impression was Palmer. But looking closer it's very similar to an Adams cue I owned in 1974-5
Cost me about $100.

I could be wrong but this cue looks like a Korean made cue (Hanbat). The design is right. I looked up their home page (hanbatbilliards.com) and they don't have all their models but they have one that is close to this cue.
