Old lead golf club weight

Post by Shaneb3 » Tue Feb 20, 2018 5:01 pm

Hi everyone. I found this small lead object at the weekend. I didn't think much of it at first, but after taking it home and cleaning off the excess dirt I thought it looked pretty interesting. It looks like it could of been part of something bigger as two lug like objects seem to be broken off from something else on the back. It was found at about 8-9inches down on old parkland now a golf course . Other finds from the same area 1700s half penny, 1820s farthing, upto 1920s-30s coins and many many old horseshoes. The depths seem to be off as the land was flattened when it became a golf course. Any help would be much appreciated.

I wonder if it's another lead weight from an early golf club as previously identified by Fred?

The other one looked old too. Whatever it is it looks as though it was designed to give some extra weight to something. ::g

Could the 2 knobbles be the stumps that once formed an arched handle

Sorry to revive an old thread but thought I'd just give an update. I dug up an old golf wood a couple of weeks ago which pretty much turned to dust in my hand to reveal an identical lead weight to this one. Very impressive I'd from you guys ::g
