1940's Hoppe Pro. This is the only 'War time joint' Hoppe Pro that I have seen that is NOT ebony or Brazilian Rosewood. Hand-rubbed refinish (by me), with new leather wrap and new shaft by Jerry Rauenzahn.

Danny Tibbitts Ebony Pool Cue - signed 1991, Price: ASK
Danny Tibbitts Ebony Pool Cue - signed 1991, Price: ASK

Custom-made, this Tibbitts cue has the typical incredible Danny Tibbitts hit; however, specs are a bit different from his normal cues as it was part of a special 4-cue "exotic woods" set of cues made for a customer. Forearm and butt are ebony and everything white is ivory, including the white rings, except possibly the buttcap which is hand-engraved 'Tibbitts Sept 1991'. The wrap is green speck Cortland linen. Also comes with 1x2 ebony & ivory joint protector set by Alton. A very early Tibbitts with a rare signature!
NFS: 1900-1920 French Brunswick Wedge Billiard Cue
NFS: 1900-1920 French Brunswick Wedge Billiard Cue

Very rare early 1900's French Brunswick cue, restored by myself and Dave Barenbrugge. Cue is a reddish-brown wood with "Macassar ebony look" figuring, 'Made in France' stamped in the forearm, a Brunswick propellor logo also stamped on the forearm, ivory and ebony wedges, ivory buttplate and joint, and the original wood pin-in-shaft used by Dave to create a new shaft. Total length is about 58" with the shaft longer than normal. The cue was probably originally a carom cue, but is now quite playable. Every effort was made to restore this cue to what it was originally. See detailed description for restoration description.

1940's War-Time Shield Hoppe Pro Pool Cue - Brazilian Rosewood, Price: ASK
1940's War-Time Shield Hoppe Pro Pool Cue - Brazilian Rosewood, Price: ASK

War-time joint (non-brass) with steel pin, steel shaft insert and rare 'shield' weight-stamp. Longer veneers than the normal 1940's Hoppe Pros - this seems consistent among cues with war-time joints. Less taper (fatter) at top of wrap and throughout the forearm than other 1940's Hoppe Pros I have owned. Shaft is original to the cue (steel war-time shaft insert) but appears to have a later ferrule and has no tip. Shaft is not straight.
