Rangefinder "Birdie" Iron|
Donaldson Manufacturing Company
A very good example of this interestingly-shaped club, a variation on the mashie niblick, from a well-respected Glasgow maker.
The boat-shaped head has a hand-punched dot face and the reverse, with very clear stampings, has the Rangefinder logo trademark, the "birdie" mark (also shown as a registered trademark), "Birdie Iron", and "2/130 yards".The grip looks like a first replacement but is very much Donaldsons' style: the deep burgundy leather culminating in a very pronounced "bell-end".
