Looking to hear some thoughts on this, and then I’ll say what it was purchased as.

It’s been refinished and the bumper is a replacement, but accurate to the original.

I bought it as a Verl Horn based on the seller having a similar marked cue. (I hope he doesn’t mind my using his pictures.)

Little details just made the one I bought stand out: Wider, longer points. Cleaner veneers. Wider rings. Butt cap. Pin looks a little different. Trim ring in butt seems like it may be aluminum.

I was poking around on facebook or maybe here recently and came across a Rauenzahn cue that looked pretty darn close if not exactly like this one. Could it be one of his cues? I will try and look for the photo, upon seeing it I thought to myself, that's the cue on AZ.

I‘m sure the cue predates Jerry R.’s cues.

-R- like Horn built a lot of “tribute” cues after two great masters.

The more I look at it, the more I agree with ideologist. It looks like someone with some know how took a front from an Adam and made their own cue out of it. I am sure it probably hits solid, but not a hidden gem.
