This 1914 Dunlop V ball has never been used. It still has its original wrapper and comes inside its original drawstring bag. Truly, this ball is a mint specimen. The printed bag bares the date of 1914. The seam on the side of the bag has come undone from the top to a short ways down, but could easily take a few stitches and be just as new. Then again, it is nothing major at all. All the images of the bag show the seam and nothing looks amiss. The black V on the ball matches the black printing on the bag. "Wow! What a fabulous ball!" says it all.
This Dunlop V is in the upper left hand corner of the golf ball group shot in the accompanying images. This group shot includes many other golf balls lots in this auction and demonstrates the remarkable evolutionary story of the golf ball, from feather ball to hand-hammered gutty, lathe line-cut red gutty, molded gutty, the Haskell and early rubber core balls.
