A mid-1920's wood-shafted Jonko putter is an outstanding collectible. And this one still has its original hickory shaft (and leather wrap grip)! You can even see the "Gibson's" portion of the oval shaft stamp.

The head has a hand forged, rustless steel blade with a distinctive design. The high ball-shaped mound along the slim face includes a dot-stamped pattern. The thin, tapering hosel and Gibson star cleek mark on the crown also are part of its very distinctive look.

For the record, the back of this head is stamped ""Wm Gibson & Co. Limited Scotland. Kinghorn" within an oval and the sole is stamped "Made In Scotland/ Hand Forged /Rustless".

Circa mid to late 1920's. This putter is the second club in the bottom row of the group image.
