Fresh off of ebay... and I don't know if it originated here, but it was a steal.

You are indeed correct Jimbo; that was a steal.

Yup, I bid on it and nobody else did... it was a steal. I'm almost ashamed...

My only concern was that it doesn't appear to say "Nead" on it anywhere, but comparing it to other mini's made by Gene, I was 99% sure of it's authenticity.

I inquired about lack of Nead marking and below is seller's response:

"The friend I got it from bought it from Gene as a custom build. I've had other Nead Minis and this one is finished exactly like those (milling patters, weld on neck, crosshatch on bumpers)."

I thought hard about buying this one, but I passed eventually as I want to save on getting a custom. Love to see some in-hand pictures.

(sheepishly) I admit that I didn't ask/share/link to it for selfish reasons. Never thought I'd actually be the only one to see it or bid on it. I had a max bid up to $325/shipped and it never kicked once. Initial starting bid took it!

Oh, wow. You would have handsomely beat me. I was willing to go up to mid $200.

Aren't you glad I just saved you $100? :)

Not saying it is not a Nead putter; but I have never seen one of his putters in well over 10 years now with out his name stamped on it.

... which could possibly make it even that much more collectible!

Maybe Gene could chime in on this and help out. Either way, I tend to believe it is what it was sold as... an unmarked Nead mini.

It came from Minnesota!  But not from me.  The Neads I have will never leave!

Great pick up, Jimbo!

I was following but assumed it wouldn't stay that low and didn't wanna get into a bidding war (I'm do badly with those, I'm the guy who ends up over paying so I can win)

Jimbo,

I am about 99% sure that is the first mini I ever built, I think it was given to Ari or one of the guys from scratch
golf when they came for a visit to my place years ago, it was never stamped at all if I remember correctly.
That was the first design I had done of the mini, I think I only built a couple of them before I figured out a
design I liked. As I said pretty sure that one of the guys from scratched liked the design....I really didn't so I torched it and gave it to them.

Awesome Gene, and thanks for the feedback.

I still have the copper plated Anser tribute that you made for the PGA show a few years back, the one with the green and white paintfill... it is a proud part of my collection. This being the very first mini that you made... well that makes my humble collection that much more special. What do you remember about the design that you didn't care for? Is it carbon... stainless... I'd love to know what you remember about it. I was attracted to it as soon as I saw it and was prepared to go much higher than the price I got it for. It was a steal before I got this feedback on it... now it is grand theft!

Appreciate your artistry...

It's OK... you can make it up to me. I need (or is that Nead) an appropriate head cover, and one of those nice divot tools.

OK, you don't need to do that, but I am elated to have this. It is not every day that you get the first of anything!

The mini has J.R. stamped on the toe. I wonder if this helps.
