Dunn Brassey Spoon

with a socket neck. The club has a flat lie and a 38 1/2" shaft.
Hairline crack in sole is not noticable. $465
Circa 1895. Like Scott’s fork splice, but does not cut into the
front of the neck as much. The shaft is much wider, however, down
the back of the neck. Shaft stamped. The soleplate is a bit
dinged up, but club looks good and joint is very visible and solid.
Patented 1924 by Edwin Cosby, this driver has a sewn leather grip,
and the shaft has a steel core inside lengths of bamboo. Original
woven thread covering the bottom 10" of the shaft. Shows little use.

By design, the fibre slip under the full brass soleplate extends out
ahead of the face. This lofted extension would supposidly help the
golfer get the ball airborne. $225
