Andrew Herd Scott was both a fine golfer and clubmaker! His Unbreakable Neck brassie like the one offered here was patented in 1895, with Scott describing the unique joint as such: "The shaft, which tapers towards one end, is formed square of rectangular in cross section at that part and enters a correspondingly shaped recess in the neck and head of the club, the said shaft passing right through same to the sole...By this means a joint is made that is practically unbreakable, while it also gives more spring to the head and consequently greater power to the stroke, thereby enabling a ball to be driven further than with an ordinary club..."

The original 41 1/2" shaft is stamped and still has its original sheepskin grip.  Club is in excellent condition as shown in photos.

See TCA2 v1 p159 for more on Scott's distinct club.
