Did brunswick make a 5 x 10 gold crown? I saw one for sale and was wondering if maybe it was actually a 9 foot table.

I've seen one 10 ft GC. The pool hall owner shimmed the pockets and made it a snooker table. It was an ooold GC though.

Can't say for 100% certain, but I believe that any ten foot Gold Crown that you come across started out life as a snooker table. I know a room in St. Louis with one. I think the Gold Crowns inception in the early sixties post-dated the use of ten-foot pool tables as the tournament standard. Could be wrong.

Adios,
