Rare******1900 Hickory Handled Hand Forged Gibson Iron Golf Club
Gibson started forging iron head clubs in the mid 1890s in Edinburgh and continued using his maker's mark of the 5 pointed star throughout his 50 years of production. At first, the clubs he made were hand forged but like many other large quantity makers, this changed to drop forging to deal with an increased demand.
He also made sets of clubs for some clients and F. A. Larke of Bungay in Suffolk, England was probably one of those customers. Because the back of the head also includes "HAND FORGED" under "WARRANTED", I would suggest this club was made between 1895 and 1900 before Gibson started making them by drop forging.
It has a brown leather wound grip which looks like it is the original grip because it is in some disrepair, especially further down the shaft where the left hand thumb might be placed.
The price doesn't include any postage or handling.
