specially made by a blacksmith, they were quite expensive and few were made in the earliest days of golf,” said Gutierrez. “For this reason very few remain today, with approximately 70-75 in existence today dating prior to 1830, the majority of which are primarily owned by old Scottish or British golfing clubs, or else reside in golf museums, making this an incredible opportunity for a smart collector.”
Further highlights of the auction include a 1910s-20s Francis Ouimet Tournament Used Putter (estimate: $10,000+), Bobby Locke’s 1952 British Open Gold Championship Medal (estimate: $40,000+) and an array of great material ranging from memorabilia belonging to Edward VIII – The Duke of Windsor, along with gold medals from Paul Runyon, Jess Sweetser, Bobby Jones’ Personal Photograph Album from his estate, rare 19th century golf balls and extremely collectible golf porcelains and sterling silver awards.
