This fine English field hockey stick has numerous marks to the front & back. They are:
On the reverse: "This Stick is guaranteed to have passed the Official test of the Hockey Association" within a circle above the number "21". On the front: "M.C.C. Company Ltd." and "Bedford" then a globe surrounded by "The World Renowned" and "Registered" as well as " No1" and "College".
The stick is sound and in excellent condition. It has wear to the ball striking area as can be expected considering its age. The original whipping is intact and present. There is old tape at the bottom of the grip to secure some unravelling. I suspect all the whipping is there but I have not tried to remove the tape to check it. If I'm right all that would be needed is a bit of white clear drying glue to fasten the string.
I would date this stick to c1880-1900. It measures 34 3/4" long ( 86 cm)...... FREE SHIPPING
