Odd Soleplate 693T

Took a chance on a lot that came up on Ebay. One of the clubs is stampted with 693T, but has a soleplate that does not seem to match what I have seen on all other 693's. I am guessing it was put on to replace a damaged one. I do not have the club in my possession yet, but thought I would see what the forum thought. I have seen the clover leaf soleplate stamping before, but not on a 693.

  • From what I can find, that clover with the number inside shows up on Ben Hogan BAP models. I have not seen the face or the crown of the club so I do not know what else is there, but that means the 693T stamp is most likely not original...? Will be very interesting to see what the club looks like.

    Did find this on Dave Wood's site, but it shows a 653 not a 693, but does have a similar swept back sideways MacGregor stamp, so maybe it is legit...
