Would you hang it?

My father bought this a yard sale this AM for a dollar. Would you hang this on the wall, I might be a little freak out. Anybody have any insight into this?

Yep, what PNG said. (and you could use that for a comp. price to chisel down the price of the McReynolds mount)

I would hang it on the wall like I would hang any antique rod or plug. I't's a piece of history from the sport you love.

If I offend you please call 1-800- 328-7448
