Made by St. Mungo of Glasgow, Scotland, this St. Mungo Colonel Remade rubber core ball has a new cover, installed in 1906. This ball shows light use, but remains in outstanding condition.

In the early 1900s, it was rather commonplace for well-used rubber-core golf balls to be repurposed.  Golfer's would turn them in and the manufacturers would remove the old covers and install new ones, after all, the hardest part of making a rubber core ball was the making of the wound elastic core itself.   It the ball was a solid gutta ball to begin with, it would simply be remolded.
