Made in 1909 by the Worthington Ball Co., this Worthington White has large flat studs that cover the surface of the ball. The poles were originally marked "Worthington White" on one pole and "Pat Apr 11-99" on the other.  This ball shows major wear, so the tiny lettering once visible on the poles is no longer readable.  The ball has also lost most of its original paint.  But what remains are the large round studs on this brilliant, genuine dark brown gutta percha cover that still displays quite well.

A copy of an ad from 1909 for this ball is included in the images.
