Sporting corrugated deep groves set at an angle across the face, this iron was made sometime in the early 1920s by George Nicoll of
Leven, Scotland. Nichol started his clubmaking business in 1881 and
used slight variations of an upturned hand for his mark across his
entire career. The back of this iron bears that cleekmark, along with
his name and location. It is also stamped "Warranted / Handforged" and
"Zenith / Mashie Pitcher."
Around the turn of the century, George's son stepped up in the family
business and helped model it after other leading club manufacturers
like Spalding--producing complete lines of irons of which Zenith was one
of the most popular.
The 37 1/2" shaft is a replacement, likely from back in the day. Original grip.
