how much is the brunswick crown jewel worth??
« on: January 26, 2005, 06:37:16 AM »
just curious.  My pro shop guy has one and says its worth a lot and it has actual gold in it.  Its gold flakes inside a clear-ish ball.  So big B experts, whats she worth? i think it might have been made in the 70's

There were a number of Crown Jewels.  I had a green one.  However only the gold one had actual gold in it.  It's worth what someone will pay for it.

I dont' know just how much, but if it THE gold crown jewel, the one with the flakes, it's worth a handsome some of money.

yes i didn't think he would lie.. The ball has been retired for some time since you can't use balls with metal or anything like that.

BTW, I'd be interested in getting a 14 or 15 pound Crown Jewel in any color BUT gold if anyone has one laying around.

Those gold crown jewels are worth a pretty penny. NIB that is, doubt its worth much drilled. Rags, I wanna get one to, but I want the pink one!

What makes me angry is that a former very good friend of mine (haven't spoke in 2 years now) has had one sitting in a closet for 20 years and won't get rid of it.  Oh, i think it's pink
