The head on this putter is made from Pyralin, a type of vulcanized rubber, and was originally patented in the US by Willie Dunn Jr. in 1903.  Dunn assigned his patent to the "Kempshall Mfg Co, Arlington, NJ," and that information is stamped on the top of the clubhead. Kempshall was an early American club and ball maker. 

Three circular lead weights in the back of the head still have their original pyralin covering in place. The 34 1/2" shaft and immaculate sheepskin grip are original. This putter is in outstanding condition and still looks stunning!

This club is to the far right in the second row of the accompanying group picture.
