8 Club Set Antique Vintage Hickory Shaft Monel Metal Irons:
This listing is for a set of8 right handedantique vintage hickory shaft irons. All were made of patented non-corrosive Monel Metal. Monel Metal is composed of 67% nickel, 28% copper and 5% of other metals including iron, manganese, carbon and silicon. It was first developed by INCO (the International Nickel Company) in the early 1900's. It's non-corrosive nature made it well suited for use in golf heads in the teens and 20's.
Included are theDriving Iron 39 1/4" length 22* Loft and D 7 swingweight, the Mid iron 39" 26* D 3, the Mashie 37 1/2" 32* E 7, the Mashie Niblick 35 1/2" 36* C 4, the Niblick 36 3/4" 54* D 5, the Jigger 36" 36* C 3, the hard to find Approach Cleek 38" 28* B 9 and the 32 1/2" Putter. 4 of the irons have nice wide flanged soles and one has a mussel back.The heads are clean and not all rusted. All have the expected play nicks and dings.Please look at the multiple zoom pictures for a better idea of condition. Shafts are all old hickory.I see no cracks in any of them except for the niblick. They are a generally straight lot except for the putter that has a noticeable bend. There is some play at the hosels.All hickory shafted clubs should be reset prior to play. Grips are all old and in poor to good vintage condition.
If you are considering playing with these clubs, while I see no real issues with the hickory shafts, I suggest that whippingbe added just above the hosels to help prevent breakage.These old hickory shafts often have hidden defectsand are liable to break at any time. I do not guarantee hickory shafts against breakage when put into play. Never hit an old hickory shafted club off a driving range mat. Never hit an old hickory shafted wood with a hard range
