1929 Golf Bag Hang Tag Overlook Golf Club Lancaster Pa.

Lancaster Pennsylvania Golf ??

Overlook

Golf Tag

This auction item is for a 1929 bag hang tag from the Overlook Golf Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania (or perhaps the one in Hollis, New Hampshire??)

The tag is in very good condition and rather unique.  Dating back that far, it’s hard to really tell which of the two “Overlook” courses this actually comes from…. in fact there may have been even other “Overlook” courses back in the ’20s

Check it out… and make a bid.

ANTIQUE VINTAGE SCOTTISH FORGAN HICKORY DREADNAUGHTS DRIVER

 

WOW A TERRIFIC PENNY SALE !

Vintage Golf ClubHere we see a very good to excellent condition hickory wooden dreadnaughts shafted R. Forgan Scottish driver.

The seller believes this would qualify as a dreadnaughts style wood as the club head is quite large. Measured across the crown from the top edge leading side to the back edge side above the back weight it is 2 13/16 inches.

Most of the original finish remains intact! This ‘Crown’ cleekmark dates the club between 1901 to 1908, I believe.

A very solid club throughout. This club face remains very nice with its original fine line diamond scoring. No cracks to club head, neck, or shaft.

Nice ram’s horn slip plate has just a couple quite small play nicks. Crown stamped, “R. FORGAN, ST. ANDREWS.”

The quality of Forgan’s clubs is legendary and it shows in this club.

Original wooden shaft is without cracks or chips and is clearly stamped, “R. Forgan & Son, St. Andrews, Selected.”

Have a look at this terrific item that had a starting price of just ONE CENT !

The second one shown has a tintype of a couple inside and case measures 3″ x 2 1/2″ x 7/8″. It is being used as a sideways frame but is universal and with a different photo could be used in an upright fashion. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. The photo is also in very good condition. Case closes with a ‘snap’ as designed.

The third case pictured below the other two is empty and measures 3″ x 2 5/8″ x 7/8″. It has some discoloration spots on the top edge which may or may not clean away. There are some minor chips of pinhead and smaller sizes along the inside edges of the closure. The clasp does not catch which may or may not be corrected with bending outward of the clasp. The case otherwise has no cracks or repairs but is worth mentioning that hinges do have some slight movement at thier pins.
