According to Jim Cooper, in his book Early United States Golf Clubs, Spalding used the baseball cleekmark found on this club beginning in 1893. It was one of the first two marks Spalding used on their clubs. The knurled hosel, which is pinned in normal fashion, and the woven/crocheted underlisting visible on the end of the grip are also features found only among Spalding's earlist golf clubs.

The original shaft in this club measures 37" in length and the blade appeears to be a touch smaller, more compact, when compared to other mashies of this era. The hosel is a normal size for the early 1890s.
