Description

Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club - LANCS-099 - I believe button 777_2 has been cast from another button using the "lost wax" casting method. I say this for two reasons. Firstly you can clearly see the marks of the rubber mould on the picture of the back of the button and , secondly, there is a casting fault at about 11 o'clock as you look at the face of the button which hasn't been properly finished.
These are silver buttons although not hallmarked and, in all probability, the original wasn't hallmarked either although I can see there is a place on the rear rim that may have been blanked out to prevent the hallmark being repeated in the mould which, of course, would have been an offence under the Hallmarking Act!!

Any additional information or images that would help with the history of the Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club is appreciated.
