Cheers

    First is a "Dalehead", second is not. Note the difference in the design of the weight pads on the rear (sloped vs. angular). There were three versions of Dales:

    Cannot make out the zip code in the pic. If 85029, manufactured mid-'66 though '67. If 85020, made '68 - '73. Surmising the pic is a latter version. No P.O Box number in the cavity. Cast from mnbr. No sight alignment aids. Sound slot in the head. Quite light by contemporary standards, ~ 320g (IIRC). Arguably, all the various Ansers of this vintage putt essentially the same. The blockish bumper is the garden variety Anser, lots of them around. So don't overpay if you're considering an acquisition. They are all to frequently misrepresented as a Dalehead, or as being 'rare'. Neither being the case. So important to recognize the differences.

    Great info! Really appreciate it.

    Picked up the first one pretty happy to find one. Don’t know exactly how common they are down here in Oz. Gave the second a miss, figured it wasn’t a dalehead just couldn’t identify it.



    Your right so many priced at dalehead prices that aren’t.

    Pretty cool: Just dug out my Dad’s Kushin in the basement menagerie of clubs and it has a 85029 zip code. Sound slot with sight dash only on topline. Has a flow neck shaft and original grip. He was an excellent putter, had it forever.



    He and my uncle converted my uncle’s dairy farm to a public golf course in Jasper, Alabama (now closed but you can still make out the holes.) My uncle was an early Ping dealer and my cousins are all good golfers and all played Ping, every club.



    I may clean this Kushin up and see how it comes out.
