Antique Vintage Old Scottish 1890 Sf Putter Hickory Wood Wooden Shaft Golf Club :
A hickory wooden shafted old circa 1890 Scottish smooth faced putter. Notice the sharp crease where the top line of the blade and the hosel meet. (See picture). This very sharp crease indicates a forging circa 1890 or earlier. In Scottish club making after 1890 these sharp creases disappear and are replaced with a rounded/curved transition. This is really a fantastic forging. Very likely an 1880’s club. Hosel is fat and 4 ¾ inches in length. An extremely heavy club head; look at the width of the top line on this putter. No head stampings seen on this, only an R. Forgan shaft stamp. Hosel pin is scantly seen on just one side and appears to be an untouched original. Beautiful mottled brown/gray patina. Shaft is flush and tight at the hosel join and could certainly be an original. No cracks to this shaft. One tiny surface chip to the shaft right at the hosel join (see picture). Shaft is clearly stamped, “R. Forgan & Son, St. Andrews.” The shaft has a slight St. Andrews bend. Topped with an old period leather wrap over fat underlisting. Leather is not dry, but a little slick. Total length at 35 inches. Please see my other wood shafted and vintage collectible golf clubs. Some are quite rare. Also listing collectible PING putters on a regular basis. All without reserve. THANKS!
