Offered here is a Patented 1915 Manhattan Golf Tee. This exceptional vintage golf tee was a scarce and short lived innovation. The reason being, is that it was made entirely of rubber with the exception of the lead inside the disc which was used to weigh it down. However, with not very many swings the rubber tore away from the disc. This rare example is found in amazing NR-MT condition and the rubber even remains pliable. On the strap it reads, "MANHATTAN TEE" in large letters and has "PAT. JUNE 29 - 1915" below in smaller letters. A great addition to your antique golf memorabilia collection!
