Manufactured by Henley's Tyre & Rubber Co in the 1898, this Henley B Marking is in mint condition.  Just two tiny paint chips.  This ball makes a great companion ball to the Henley with the British Union Jack flag pattern. Yes! Yet ANOTHER fabulous gutty ball!

This Henley B is the middle ball in the second row 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.
