From the looks of it, it appears to be an import cue from the late 60's or early 70's. What I see of the shaft wood makes me think the shaft is Ramin wood. Ramin wood shafts are the first key sign to identifying a low grade import cue. The butt appears to have moved by the fact the the plastic rings appear to be out of line with the rest of the butt wood.

In my mind it looks like the kind of cheap cue that would have been found in an Imperial International catalog with other cheap cues to wholesaled out to dealers. Fancy looking cues made with the lowest cost materials to be sold to a buying public who have no clue what constitutes a quality cue.

China/Taiwan import cue. Along the lines of Imperial, etc. Older one apparently.

On Ebay right now.

Ditto, what he said! The cue, without all that cheap plastic, would make good kindling though!
