- The Palmer Collector -
Model 9, First Catalog
These Model 9's are classic old Palmers. The two on the left have the original wrap, one in irish linen and one in two tone silk. Two of these, the cue in the middle and the cue on the far right are among the earlist Palmers.  I would estimate they were built in the 1964 - 1965 time period. Notice the two joint pins with holes in the center. This is a sign of a very early cue.  The Model 9 on the right is probably the oldest of the three. It's a seldom seen ebony Titlist which were available on special order.  It's also only 57", standard for many cues of the day. The other two have the typical Titlist rosewood splice.
