Lets see some of the Palmers out there. I started out playing with one and still love the old one's. #1 Larry Lisciotti Palmer in the bluebook of cues. I have never seen one like it with the silver ring work and Szamboti blank #2 #20 Supreme unrestored with two shafts in beautiful condition #3 #16 third catalogue I bought new in 1980 with the Fellini case still have both in like new condition #4 Model H from the little known 1st 1st catalogue I am told less than 50 were made and an expert you all know said he has one and has not seen another. It came with the original case and fantastic original finish. Enjoy and lets see some other wood. Randy
The Paradise is original. I purchased the Palmer already refinished with an incorrectly shaped replacement butt cap and non-original black wrap. After speaking with the second owner of this cue who bought it from the Gartner family, I was able to determine that the cue was originally wrapped with green speck linen and that the 13.75mm shafts were original to the cue. The case is a modern case and not original to either cue.
Danny Gartner was the 14:1 NJ State champ in 1964-1965 and a contender with the best of his era.
Just received from PFD Studios after being refinished. Enjoy the photos~!
Looks great. Actually, it looked pretty good before. But the refresh (and possibly a new shaft??) should set you up to start playing. Congratulations. Don't let it sit in a closet. Have fun with it.
