Going through alot of old golf stuff and I was wondering if anyone knows when were the Tommy Armour 653s made?  Is there a difference between the 653 and the 653T.  the numbers are not on the sole plate, they are on the wood under the toe. Thanks.

653's were made at least by 1949 and through 1955. The "T" designation was for clubs with rubber grips. No "T" meant clubs with leather grips. How many screws in the insert, 4 (diamond pattern) or 6 (box pattern)?

I believe you are correct. The "T" was for a CORDED RUBBER grip.
