What is this worth?  It is a heel-shafted, flange offset putter, made in USA.  Would it make for a good 1st-time refurbishing project?  

What are these Acushnet Bulls Eyes known for?  Feel?  Anything?  Anybody still game one of these?  Any Wrx-ers with expertise who chime in are greatly appreciated!  Thanks!  Please see pics...

Anybody?  You guys are all putter experts...I am so curious what I found.  Is it brass under the black paint?  Steel?  Any general info is appreciated...

The lack of response should tell you it's not worth a whole lot!  ;)

Probably not worth much (less than $20).  This one looks painted.  I've never played this heel-shafted version, but have played a few LaFemmes and they have terrific feel -- very soft.  They're kinda like forged blades, great on the sweetspot, but much less forgiving anywhere else.  Corey Pavin still plays a Bullseye as does Mark McNulty.

I have 3 Bulls Eye's

2 Acushnet versions (LB and W-FL) and a pat.pending...
unfortunately not worth much as they used to 15-20yrs ago. The pat.pending
still holds some value to a collector, but only what one is willing to pay

The one you have, does it have a rubber grip? If so it could be from the 60-80's.
If wrapped leather, it's earlier

Yes it is brass under that paint


Hope that helps

Looks like a great refinishing project to start, I would love to have a chance to play around with that and if re-done I'm sure it would look great on the wall. Good luck and keep us posted with any work you do.

I refurb bullseyes as a hobby....look great all polished...but game better satin

here is an example of my recent work...selling on ebay from this sunday!

I usually get about $30-50 for these. Sometimes I use new shafts if they are needed.

I have sold quite a few John Letters Golden Goose putters for similiar prices. Its great you can pick them up for next to nothing...spend a little spare time on them and hayho!
