This is a 40 year old size five.
I believe it is a gn.

Interesting twine string tape used (obviously not the parcel tape) the shape of the shoulders look familiar too...

@LukeFramBurton and @Buzz , very cool pics!

I have an old, broken bat with an intact handle. I will use combination of tape and cut-outs of grips on top of twine to create bumps.

Suspect TK wasn't making bats 40 years ago! The men who he learnt the trade from were though.

Sure. The neat indentations in the shoulder do look familiar. There is a similar vintage GN on Ebay at the moment and this has similar indentations on both front and back of shoulder. Ultra lightweight too. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223914768175

So does this mean avocado Wood will be the next big thing in bats?  ;)
