This early 1890s Forgan long nose putter has its original shaft and sheepskin grip. The Prince of Wales Plume is stamped on the crown.  The shaft is stamped “R/ Forgan & Son, St. Andrews”  The head still have its original finish.  Light scoring lines on the face.  A nice club in all respects.  Based in St. Andrews, Robert Forgan learned clubmaking as an apprentice to Hugh Philp before taking over Philp’s business in 1856.  TCA2 V1 p70-74
