When Burke originally offered this backspin iron in the early 1920s, it was advertised as having a “checkered” face.  Today it has been dubbed a waffle face for obvious reasons.  This example is made out of Monel metal, which has a high nickel content (67%) but does not use any iron.  As such the clubs are non-magnetic and never rust.  TCA2 V1 p252 & 276
