You can always e-mail Evan Clarke and ask him, info@schoncues.com

However, I am pretty sure it's an SP 47 from 1990 or a variation of it. It was at this time that Schon was switching over from milled points to pantograph inlays. This has the olive colored 'veneers', popular during this time period and nice looking.

There are a couple of clues as to the dating of the cue. The first is the silver rings, which were primarily used on cues after 1985. The second is that the shafts are not imprinted with Schon, or the collars aren't marked with a printed Schon, which strated in 1993. The two upper shafts are the orginal shafts.

The cue will probably auction for $600 or so. I had a cue from this time period and it really played super. I have a small collection of older Schons, a little older than this.

At one time I worked on a Schon ID site, but kind of stalled the idea because Schon wasn't hot on it. Schon fans were hot on the idea, that's for sure. If you go to this link and look at the SP page - you should find this cue.
