Made by C. Rodwell & Co., the Rodwell London ball has a large C over top of a Crown on the opposite pole. McGimpsey in his book, The Story of the Golf Ball, records a Rodwell Crown Bramble from the eaerly 1900s but makes no mention of a dimply ball of the same make and name. 

The Ajax 31 ball was made around 1922 by The Midland Rubber Co.,

The AA & A ball was made by Anderson, Anderson & Anderson in the 1920s.

All three balls are without strike marks and their dimple patterns are early, and distinctly different in their spacing one from the other. A great lot of three rare and very attractive golf balls.
