  • Tom Reece Cues

    Reece01compressed.jpgI recently purchased a nice 901 second break Tom Reece from Mike at Old Cues. I was chuffed as I thought I finally had all the Reece 499,135 cues. Then I read about a 692 second break, 1st Feb 1911 (although I am yet to see a pic). I thought for years there was only the 627, 773 and the 901 until a couple of years ago I purchased a 751 needing some love and attention. This makes me think, is there any other second break Reece cues around??
    Can anyone help? I would love to see photos of the 692 break cue.
    I have tried to attach photos but my files are too big.
    When I work out a way of reducing them I will try again.

    Apart from the 499,135 and other anchor cannon breaks, you have listed most of Reece's personal record breaks, which chronologically run:

    627: Saturday 19th January 1907.
    669: Friday 20th January 1911.
    692: Wednesday 1st February 1911.
    740: Saturday 21st December 1912.
    751: Thursday 2nd January 1913.
    773: Thursday 6th March 1913.
    901: Wednesday 14th June 1916.

    I would have thought that the 669 was made too near to his 692 break to have been produced as a separate cue plate, being less than two weeks apart, as indeed were the 740 and 751 breaks, so you have probably identified them all.

      Thank you for that invaluable information.
      Andy Hunter just sent me a photo of the 692 break cue so I know that was produced. I think there is a chance there is a 669 and 740 out there somewhere.
