Marked "Boye Patent 1437463" on the sole, it features an adjustable hosel that tilts back and forth, heel to toe. This allows the clubhead to be used right-handed, left-handed, or croquet style. To operate the mechanism, simply push the hosel to the desired position.

Boye's club is considered "multiface" because more than one side of the head was designed to strike the ball. The flat side of the head is used for putting and the uneven (dual face) side is used for chipping. You'll note that the uneven side even has two lofts--one positive and one negative--which was designed to remove all backspin from the chip.

The top of the 34" shaft features a metal disc that is actually a "putt/club counter." The adjustable click wheel on the outside allows the golfer to track their strokes from 1-19.

The clubhead has small hairline cracks on both the front and back side with a significant crack along the back edge of the sole. These clubs are often found with cracks because, sadly, the metal used to construct these hollow heads was not very durable. Boye clubs are scarce to come by, so it is still a worthy collectible!
