Got out of my Dad's estate a very good condition Walter Hagen "Autograph" driving iron.  Looks to be an oak shaft still with a nice bright lacquer finish.  Even the grip is in good shape.  Head has no corrosion or rust, just som bag chatter.

Any value to this?

Two questions-

Do you have any photos of it?

Did Walter Hagen ever use it?

Cleaning out the basement (snow today) and decided to tackle my dads old club rack.
Found a few Hagen wooden shaft sticks, a Driving Iron and Mashie, and thought I'd look for info on them.
Sure enough, GolfWRX had a topic started.

Took a few pics. I think this is what the OP was talking about.
Decent shape, been sitting in basement for longer than I've been alive. No idea where they came from or how old they are.
If anyone has info, please post.

Check the clubs with a magnet to the shafts to see if they are Pyratone (coated steel) or hickory.  I cannot tell from the pictures.  Tad

Some early pyratone shafts were flared at the bottom.  Tad

Did the magnet test (very cool) and they're pyratone. What is that?
I was suprised, one has a small split towards the neck and it looks just like other wooden shaft clubs I have with similar splits.
