The flange on the back of this blade putter is largest behind the heel and toe, which makes this club one of the earliest heel-and-toe-weighted putters ever produced.  The club was produced by the St. Andrews Golf Company, and has its stag cleekmark stamped on the top of the heel portion of the flange. The name of the seller, RE Ballentine of Sherwood Forest, is stamped on the top of the top portion of the flange.

This club appears to have its original shaft and sueded leather grip. It's "Made in Scotland" stamp is still faintly visible on the sole. Overall this club was well ahead of its time. It remains as a historic pioneer of a design that is now a staple of the game.
