Offered is an Unusual Antique hickory wood shaft DUAL FACE BRASS golf club. This two faced iron can be used as both a right and left handed club. When used as a right hand club the face appears to mimic a putter and when used left handed the club face appears to be about a 4 iron or as a chipping iron since it has a low profile face.

There are traces of chrome plating on the faces of this handsome 36 inch club. The hickory shaft sports a light toned color and the long ago replaced brushed leather grip give this club a regal feel and appearance.

The undamaged shaft has some mild bending and club faces show honorable wear with a warm, aged patina. There is a tiny wiggle at the club hosel that is unobtrusive in nature.

Deep grooved clubs such as this gem first appeared in 1914 and later outlawed in 1925. They were designed to promote more backspin to control distance and they apparently worked so well that in 1921 Jock Hutchinson won the British Open. <

I was unable to find any information on the manufacturer of this club as the only identifying mark is the letter (F) in a diamond shaped stamp.
