THE SPALDING DEEP FACE BRASS PUTTER  
Description
This is a smooth and very deep face brass putter stamped THE SPALDING. Face depth is 1 3/4 inches. Spalding offered this club from 1897 to 1900 according to 'the Spalding man' Jim Cooper. Shaft has a very slight bend, and grip is an in-period russet replacement. Face has the typical slight loft which makes it more of a display club than a player. But it is a 'knock out' display club and a great gift. (line on photo 3 is not part of club)

The ball was bigger than a golf ball and slightly smaller than a baseball. This club has sold as high as $900 in a golf auction a few years ago. Its a great display and conversation piece in anyone's collection.

VERY OLD 'SPALDING' SMOOTH FACE  
Description
This is a smooth face mashie or mashie niblick (not marked) with its head stamped SPALDING. The mark is partially worn but very readable. It is one of the first Spalding Co. marks, if not the very first, starting in 1893. The unmarked shaft has a slight to moderate bend but looks straight at address. It has a large head and hosel like the very early clubs. It is 38 inches long. Grip is a dark smooth leather with some tack repairs, but it looks good. Whipping is a light colored cord which I have only seen on very old clubs. Hosel pin is not visible and shaft to hosel joint is tight. It looks really good and may be playable.

Wm.BRAID LONG NOSE PUTTER  
Description
This is a splice neck long nose putter stamped Wm.N.Braid (in script) on head AND shaft. This appears to be William Braid of St.Andrews 1895-1897 who came out of the Forgan shop. He and his brother George came to America in 1898 to continue club making. They returned to Scotland in 1908. This club has a brass sole plate and the leading edge of the sole has a thin horn insert. Whipping looks original with small repairs. Grip is smooth leather with an unusual flat section extending down the front for positioning the thumbs. The slight bend in the shaft may be intentional as was frequently done with early putters. Nice condition. Looks very good.

T. STEWART PRE-1905 SMOOTH FACE LOFTER  
Description
This Tom Stewart smooth face club appears to be a mashie. The head has what the Stewart book calls a 6 hump snake. No registration mark. Therefore it is from pre-1905. The oval stamp is pretty well worn away but you can just see enough to make out D. McEwan Musselburgh. It also has an 'L' signifying Ladies. It is, however, a heavy enough club to be used by a man. The length is 37 inches. The shaft has a slight bend not noticeable at address. No hosel pin is visible. There is a 2 1/4 inch section of whipping on the shaft just above the hosel possibly signifying a repair (or just a strengthening of the shaft). Grip is smooth black leather. If you want it for play I will test it for you.

LOGAN'S CHEROKEE PUTTER (REPAIRED)  
Description
This is the famous aluminum mallet putter called Cherokee made by Hugh Logan in England. Its value is listed at $400 but because it has some repairs and appears to be reshafted I have reduced it to $250. It is, however, very sound and playable. The repairs are evident in the pin area. One crack can be seen but it does not extend up to the top of the hosel. Grip is smooth dark leather with some wear but sound. Length is 36 inches. So in spite of these imperfections the putter looks good and should have no trouble putting. And, at nearly half price (remember packaging and shipping are included in the price) its a good deal for this famous club. IF YOU WOULD RATHER HAVE AN UNREPAIRED VERSION PLEASE SEE GC85 BELOW.

SPALDING CHICOPEE PUTTER -- 1960's REMAKE  
Description
This brass head putter is a remake (1960's I believe) of the famous Chicopee putter by Spalding. The center shafted shape is essentially the same as the original. The only differences I can see are a smooth face instead of dots, a small site line instead of none and the name stamped on the sole instead of the rear flange. The grip is in very good shape with a flat thumb guide on the front like the original.Length is 35 inches.The fairly heavy head makes it feel very good when putting.

S.D.&G. LEFTY SPLICE NECK DRIVER  
Description
This left handed splice neck driver is clearly stamped as follows in an oval on the top of the head: HIGHEST QUALITY, S.D.& G., COMPRESSED. The shaft is stamped S.D.& G. This stands for Schoeverling, Dailey, and Gales which was an early Boston sporting goods store. The literature says the compressed head driver was made by Robert Simpson for S.D.& G. It measures 44 inches long, has a light colored head and a dark shaft. The sole has a horn leading edge. The russet grip looks too good to be original, but must be old as it is powdering a little bit. Condition is good (normal for it's age) and it displays very nicely.

1894-1897 SPALDING RUT NIBLICK  
Description
This heavy headed club has a smooth and cupped face and rounded back, but if it ever had any cleek marks they have been emoried away. It looks much like the bottom club (1897-1900) on page 59 of Reference 6 AGSCo. The face is concave by almost 1/8 inch at the center. The shaft is clearly stamped S.M.CO which according to page 68 of the same refernce was used by Spalding between 1894 and 1897. The grip is smooth leather and is no doubt an old replacement. This club may have been part of the 'THE SPALDING' series as head (p.59) and shaft(p. 68)overlap in 1897. Or, it could be part of the S.M.Co. series (1894-1897). The head has been cleaned probably searching for cleek marks. It feels like a real weapon for hitting balls out of wagon ruts and it looks great on display.

MACGREGOR SLOTTED HOSEL MASHIE  
Description
This is the SC1 slotted hosel mashie by MacGregor. I believe the dot and dashed pattern on the bottom half of the face is called a 'Stagdot' face. Its a 38 inch club with straight shaft. The pin is visible on both sides but no file marks are visible. If it was reshafted it was done early with a Crawford McGregor Canby shaft, and the shaft to hosel joint is perfect. The head is stamped with the Patent Date of May, 14, 19 __ which must be 1918 for the invention by George Mattern and assigned to MacGregor.

LONG FACE MASHIE by BEN SAYERS, NORTH BERWICK  
Description
This club is from Sayer's earlier Waverly series (with out numbers). It is stamped LONG FACE MASHIE. Not sure what Ben meant by long face because it looks standard to me. Head is nicely marked as you can see. Face is dot punched. Shaft is straight and grip is a nice smooth brown leather. Looks all original to me. Starting in the 1880's Bernard (Ben) Sayers was the long time pro at North Berwick in Scotland.

BEN SAYERS STOPUM DEEP GROOVE MASHIE NIBLICK  
Description
According to noted sources Ben Sayers designed the first successful deep groove iron called the Stopum model. It was registered and introduced in late 1913. This club has that registration number stamped on it (see photo). It appears to be all original very possibly including the grip. While in rough condition I left the grip as is so it could be displayed as all original. If you elect to play with it the grip still presents a firm feel, but it can be replaced if wanted.

BUSSEY PUTTER WITH STEEL AND BRASS HEAD  
Description
This is the nicest Bussey club I've seen. Bussey iron and putter heads are famous for their 2 metal construction. This putter has an iron hosel and a brass (gunmetal or bronze) blade. It is like the one on page 351 of Ref.1, except my hosel and blade are much longer. Ref.1 has an excellent write up including the patents, and says the Bussey heads made with iron and brass versus iron and iron are the rarest and the putter is the most desireable. Well here it is. Ref.1 Edition II carries the write up on page 429. Not only is the bimetal head an outstanding feature of this club but it has Bussey's famous sewn leather grip in excellent condition. The grip is stamped Bussey's Grip Handle. This grip is pictured on pages 528 and 666 of Ref.1 (I and II) respectively. The shaft has a small and inconspicous repair (a glued crack) just above the hosel. In terms of visual attractiveness and collectability it doesn't get better than this.

SPALDING DEEP FACE PUTTER RARE SMCo MARK  
Description
This is a beautiful Spalding deep face brass head putter. Head is stamped SMCo. over a crescent moon, a rarely found cleek mark. This mark was used by Spalding from 1894-1897. The shaft is not marked unless it is under the replacement old style grip. The pin is hardly visible but if the shaft was replaced it was done very well and long ago. The shaft has a very slight bend not visible when hung up. A few dings in the brass head as normal, but very attractive, really old, and rare.

SMOOTH FACE LOFTER BY GIBSON + DAVID STIRK PROVENANCE  
Description
This antique smooth face lofter is accompanied by a provenance card hand written by David Stirk, the famous English golf historian and writer. It reads 'Lofter. Smooth Face. Cleekmaker Gibson of Kinghorn, Fife, Scotland. Circa 1882. Stamping is Golf Club above Bembridge. Bembridge Golf Club, Isle of Wight, Hampshire, was a nine hole links beginning in 1881. By 1883, it was known as the Royal Isle of Wight Golf Club. It ceased to exist in 1961. Clubs stamped Bembridge or Isle of Wight are not common. This is a good, solid, lofter. Shaft hickory. Leather grip old but not original. (Signed) David Stirk.' To this I add, the Gibson star cleekmark and the names on the back of the head are weak but readable. The brass hosel pin is visible both sides. Although Stirk does not mention it, the shaft may be an early replacement. A nice early collectors club and probably playable.

Playable Starter Sets Of Wood Shaft Clubs (Right Handed)  
Description
This is one of several sets of playable (or displayable) wood shaft clubs we have for sale. More and more people are experimenting with playing the old wood shaft clubs. Our inexpensive starter sets consist of 2 woods, 4 irons, and a putter. The woods are a Driver and a more lofted wood such as a Brassie (2 wood) or Spoon (3 wood). You can state your preference. The irons consist of a mid-iron (2-4 iron), a mashie (5-6 iron), a mashie niblick (7-8 iron), and a niblick (9 iron) or their equivalent by other old names. The irons are graduated in loft and length. The putter is a standard blade putter. The grips are playable but you can replace them with your preferred grip. These clubs are by different makers to create an inexpensive set. A SOFT modern ball should be used with these clubs. I think these clubs are sound but they have not been tested. If you break a club I'll try and find your a replacement at a reasonable price. If the SOLD sign appears it means I'm temporarily out, but contact me for future availability.

UNUSUAL BRASS/WOOD HEAD PUTTER  
Description
This is an unusual nameless wood shaft putter with a one piece brass face and sole plate and a brass hosel attached to a wood mallet head. The plate has a thin slot cut through it which is 3 1/2 inches long on the bottom and 1 1/8 inches long on the top. This slot gives a pleasant 'ping' when the ball is struck. The top of the grip is oval shaped for nice feel and easy alignment. Length is 34 3/4 inches. Very playable. Only one I've seen in 30 years of collecting.

BRASS PUTTER STAMPED ELVERY'S DUBLIN  
Description
This is a brass head putter in the Brown-Vardon shape. The head is stamped ELVERY'S DUBLIN (much clearer than photo shows). The face has a heavy triangular dot punched pattern. The hosel is oval and so is the shaft where they join. Although the pin is visible it is probably original due to the unique oval nature of the hosel/shaft joint and a very tight fit. Length is 34 1/4 inches.

KISMET PUTTER with PHOSPHOR BRONZE SOLE  
Description
This is the highly collectible KISMET Putter with a “Phosphor Bronze” sole. It is well described in Ref. 1 and Ref 4. And this club is the same “Patent Applied For” version pictured in Ref. 4. It is 35” long with a straight but old replacement shaft. It can be putted either right or left handed. The grip is old smooth leather in good shape. The Value Guide rates this club at $200. The only reason for my low price is the reshaft, but it detracts very little from the appearance and none from the playability.

RARE FACE STAMPED CLUB  
Description
This club is the only one I’ve ever seen (out of thousands) that has the makers ID stamped on the FACE. It has to be rare as I can find no mention of Face stamping in any of my numerous reference books. Eugene K. McCarthy had to be an early pro at the very old and prestigious Hollywood Golf Club in Deal, NJ. It is 37” long with a straight shaft, good early grip, and it has mashie loft. But you won’t want to play with it. It deserves a prominent display mounting showing the unusual face. For collectors looking for a unique club this is it, and you are not likely to ever find one this good again. Also see GC83 and GC84 for two other rarely stamped clubs

RARE FACE STAMPED CLUB  
Description
This is a smooth face (well almost) lofter by J.& A. Simpson of Edinburgh, Scotland and sold through Simmons Hardware Co. Stamps for both are on the head. The unusual and rare aspect of this club is the FACE stamping shown in the photo. Also see GC82 and GC83 for other rarely stamped clubs. You just don’t see face and hosel stamping which makes these clubs highly collectible. This club is 38” long with a very old style russet grip in very good condition and original very slightly bent shaft. Like the other unusually stamped club I wouldn’t play with it but just display it for its uniqueness.

WRIGHT & DITSON FOWNES PUTTER  
Description
This is an excellent example of the famous 'FOWNES' putter. It was named after William Clark Fownes Jr. who was a distinguished amateur golfer in the 1920's and was prominently connected to the Walker Cup, the USGA and famous Oakmont Country Club. The reason behind naming this beautiful mallet head putter after W.C.Fownes is not clear but he was known to have used such a putter and the naming was perhaps to salute his many contributions to golf. This putter is in very good condition with straight shaft which is stamped Wright & Ditson.

BGI SMOOTH FACE CLEEK  
Description
This club has the 'Large Oval Head Stamp' used by BGI starting in 1898, and matches the description of the #104 Cleek BGI made from 1898 to 1904 (see Reference 5). The shaft is straight and sound but not stamped with a number unless it is under the grip. The hosel has the requisite 'W' stamp for the forger J.H. Williams Co. of Brooklyn, NY.

WILLIE PARK PATENT PUTTER  
Description
This is the famous circa1890's severely bent neck putter patented by Willie Park Jr. The head is clean and stamped clearly. The shaft is straight and stamped Wm PARK. The hosel is long and heavy with large knurling. I can see the pin on both sides but I cannot tell if it has been reshafted. If so it was done early with a Willie Park shaft. But perhaps it wasn't and the pin is simply slightly visible. The shaft to hosel joint is a nice tight fit. The grip is standard smooth dark leather. Very playable as is although you might want a new grip. A very nice and very collectible club.
