Antique Hickory Maxwell Golf Club by Gibson.
A beautiful Mid Iron by Gibson of Kinghorn, Fife, retailed Robinson & Co., Singapore. The club has a Maxwell hosel, slight flanged sole and suede leather grip. The head is with dot face markings and is clearly stamped 'STAR MAXWELL' with the Gibson 'DEEP STRUCK STAR' cleek mark. The original hickory shaft has the Gibson 'Star' stamped into.
Gibson's 'OUTLINE STAR' cleek mark was registered in 1906, although it had been used since Gibson began his business in the 1890's and was replaced with the 'DEEP STRUCK STAR' in the 1930's.
A great mid iron in good original condition and very usable for modern hickory play with an approximate 27° loft. The best balls for hickory play are low compression balls that will give at impact, such as ladies balls or soft feel balls.
