One of the two irons is marked "B Altman & Co, New York" on the back of the blade and the back of the other blade is unmarked.  These irons were made by Kroydon, but neither is so marked.  Few irons have vertical scoring because few people desired to increase the amount of hook or slice imparted to their shots. Such a club would have been a total specialty club, used only when the golfer wanted to really curve a shot.   Shafts and grips appear original.
