The Remson putter has a very distinct and unusual head shape, with a round piece of rubber located in the center of the face.  The back of the face behind the sweetspot bulges out so a decent amount of rubber could be set into the head  In 1922, Golfers Magazine ran the following ad from The Remson Company:

"Try this putter 15 days FREE!

"We believe you can cut down your game from 3 to 6 strokes with the Remson Putter. We want you to try this putter 15 days at our expense, and if not satisfied, send it back and we will pay charges both ways.

"The hard rubber center of the Remson Putter gives it the "touch" of a billiard cue; true direction, precise distance, and a forward-rolling motion on the ball."

The putter was offered in different variations--this particular one being a right-handed, gooseneck pattern. Original 34" shaft that does have a library label attached to it, with original leather grip.

The putter offered here was used a fair bit, as only a faint remnant of "Remson" and "Pat. Appld For" is still visible on the sole. Furthermore, there is whipping on the shaft which typically indicates the shaft was once cracked but then repaired. But the back of the head and sole are not very bag worn and remain in excellent condition, better than most.
