The Hyde Imperial Rubber Company produced the Woodley Flyer 27 ½ in 1895. At the time Golf magazine wrote, "We have recently tested a sample of their balls, which in the form of the mould adopted do not differ from the majority of those in the market. It is a good hard ball, well painted, clean nicking, and a fine 'flyer'." (January 1895). 

This example bears just a few light strike marks and remains in wonderful condition, with a strong, clean name at both poles.

This ball is middle row, left in the accompanying group image.
