How do I identify whether my Macgregor Colokrom's are the 1980's remake model?

Hi,

I own a set of Macgregor Colokroms but I understand they may not be the original version and may be a 1980's remake.  What distinguishes an original Colokrom from the 1980's version?

Thanks in advance,

Pete

At least a few things come to mind-

The 50s MacGregor Tourney Colokroms

1) The Originals had the Pat number on the soles
2) Iron Shafts were pinned to the hosels.

Good example of the Colokrom patent number is on the LH Tourney Colokrom set on Ebay.

The 80s version were also a pretty shiny chrome finish.  The originals will look very dull.

The later model will have tour forged on the hosel neck

What teevons said, and also the shafts will be a dead giveaway.

Thanks for all your replies they are much appreciated.

I've attached some photos of one of my irons.  I don't think they are the remakes.

Not re-issues, look just like the original 1950's set I have and not like the 1980's reissue set I have. :rolleyes:

I think another giveaway is the fact that yours have the square dots outlining the copper on the face. I believe that the 1980's versions just had a vertical line on either side of the scoring lines

Your  MacGregor MT Tourney Colokrom  REG M75 clubs are the 50s originals of the period.

Your pictured iron has a pin, the requisite diamonds framing the copper layer, and 3 ring knurling.

Have fun!.
