Faintly stamped “Wright & Ditson, Cran, Pat. June 8, 1897” on the back of its head, this cleek has an insert of wood inlaid in the face.  Designed to offer the golfer an iron that provided the feel of a wood, this club was covered under an 1897 US Design Patent issued to James Cran. It was the 10th US patent issued for a golf club.

The shaft and wood insert are original as well as the patina on the head. Grip matches up to the club well, but possibly not original.  TCA2 V1 p393
