Measuring only 32 inches in length, this jigger was made for a child.  Even the hosel and the blade were made small in an effort to produce a club light enough for a child to swing. Tom Stewart is who forged the club and marked it with his pipe stamp, but he did so at the request of Morris, who's name is marked on the back of the head, so he could sell it in his shop. 

The shaft and grip appear original. The clean look of the hosel pin might make it appear to be a replacement, but I believe it is the original pin.  There is no evidence of any filing, etc, around the pin.  The stamps on the back of the head are still strong on this rare Morris juvenile iron.
