1850's Scottish Long Iron Lofter Club w/ '133' Shaft Stamp


Here is an early lofter club. The head is shallacked and there is an pattern around the top of the hozel. The hozel is 4 1/2" long, with the top of the grip to the heel of the club being 37." There is no legible head stamp, with the only marking being the number '133' on the shaft. This piece will come with a signed letter from Historian Bob Denney of the PGA, proclaiming that this item comes from their collection.

Club expert Frank Henry shared his thoughts on this rare club.

“The shape of the head and length of the hozel typically is that of an extremely old club, pre-1850s. The diameters of the shaft and hozel are very large, with the heavy nicking in the metal hozel at the point the shaft enters being large and crude. The transition of the hozel to top of blade is typical of very old hand forged club heads, with it having a flat surface at transition point. The lambskin grip looks original, but could have been replaced in the 1890’s. The whipping is period correct. It starts out brown in color, to then take on a black shade from stain or dyes, and finally it is waxed prior to being used on the clubs. It is a very nice example of an early lofter.”
