This is a rare vintage Rooney Stubby 1 with Heritage hair and a genuine horn handle.  The knot is 24mm/55mm, densely packed and with plenty of backbone and tips that are soft but have a very slight scritch.  It holds and releases lather very well.  The handle has a very small ding at the bottom edge, which I have tried to show clearly in the last two images.  I don't remember hitting it on anything, so I don't know how it happened.  It is stable, and I think it just adds character to the brush.  NB: Don't be misled by its label as a Stubby 1; look at the last image below, and you'll see that it actually is the size of a regular Stubby 2.

Buy the Stubby and I'll toss in a vintage 1940 Rooney Broad Arrow Black Boar wooden handles brush for free.  $200 shipped CONUS.  SOLD

Added image to show its true size, which is equivalent to a regular Stubby 2.
