This is an old , antique, tennis racquet. Features a fantastic body. Original gut string is 100% OK. It is still very tight. This is a great "survivor". The original paint is missing. Maybe it is a custom.  I have owned this for many years and have done quite a bit of research on it. It is unmarked and I can't put a maker with it, but i am 99% certain it is a Wright & Ditson. It has the screw in the correct place. I've included many pictures. Please click super size images to see this wonderful racquet. Measures 27 1/4" long. Head is 8 3/4" wide X 12 1/4" long. The complete weight is 9 ounces.
