Offered is a hard to find R. Forgan made Mashie golf club.

The club has plenty of information stamped on back as follows: "R. FORGAN" in script - "R. FORGAN & SON (then a CROWN image below) and ST ANDREWS" - 'WARRANTED HAND FORGED' "MASHIE", plus 'M.G.' (? owners initials) and finally 'VL & D N.Y.' (? US store that sold this club).

The hickory shaft retains an old darkened finish and sports the following stamp marks just below the grip: "ST ANDREWS" - "SELECTED" & "R FORGAN & SON". The shaft has a slight to mild warping and is solid. The club head has a wonderful darkened, untouched patina with some old remnants of debris within its punched holes. The leading edge of the sole and toe have evidence of honorable play sporting unobtrusive dings.

This desirable beauty measures 36 inches from heel to end of the grip. While quite playable, I would proudly display this club as a collector's item made by one of the best Scottish club makers of his time. Would date to circa 1900.
