I looking for some information on a old pool cue I have. All I now is that it's a Brunwick cue and it was made in the late 60's.

Your cue is a Brunswick Taiwanese import from the mid-70's. It is a knock-off of a Brunswick cue design that was built, originally, by Adam cues in Japan. Other than the quality, the main differentiating feature was the joint. Adam/B'wicks had the pin-in-butt type joint. Your cue has the typical brass, pin-in-shaft joint used on inexpensive imports. Prices for these are all over the board. Unknowledgeable people pay lots because they look fancy and have the Brunswick name on them. People who know, pay far less or pass. Taiwanese production of Brunswick cues was the nadir of B'wick cue production. If it helps, it is the most desirable of the Taiwanese B'wicks. Sorry if this wasn't what you wanted to hear.

Adios,

I had a felling it was something like that. I just wanted to know if I should use it for every day playing or if I should get it restored.
