G'day,
I was wondering if anyone has any information on this putter? The few lines in the Detetco booklet is all that I can find,
Were they issued with a shaftband or not?
This one doesn't have one, but the rest of the putter is perfect, so it seems strange that one wouldn't be there, when everything else is. It has barely begun to tarnish,
Any info on this putter would be greatly appreciated, cheers Steve.

copied and pasted from Facebook:

The Ping Anser Scottsdale 1994-95 limited edition reproduction putter. When I say limited I use that loosely. It was said that Karsten Solheim made 22,000 of these. Some were made with rocker soles and some with flat soles. They were casted with the original mold with the same material, magnesium bronze. These putters are made with great quality and sometimes mistaken with an untrained eye, for the real deal which was made in 1966. The serial # on the reproduction was on the hosel numbering 1 through 22,000. A few of these were personally hand ground by Alan and John Solheim which was easy to identify by the serial number ending with “J” or “A”. This would be cool to have in any putter collection. These have also played in many PGA Tour events, proven as well! Payne Stewart won the 1995 Shells Houston Open with it. His hosel serial # was 47. Now that’s some cool history right there!!!Best way to know how to identify these from the 1966 Scottsdale is by the text in the cavity. The 1966 had patent numbers on top in the cavity and “OTHER PAT. PEND.” on the bottom of the text in the cavity. I have owned a good hand full of these Limited Editions and a good handful of the original 1966 Anser’s and I can tell you, I felt no difference. So if you want a great Ping Anser done in a Scottsdale mold pick one of these LE up and give it a roll. You will truly have a classic that’s over 20 years old
