Produced in 1911 by JP Cochrane, this (star) Challenger Patent golf ball has stars inside stars across the entire surface. The ball is still in its original paint and the paint shows significant wear.  There is also a major crack in its gutta percha cover on the backside of the ball, as shown in the images.  Even so, this genuine star Challenger is worth far more than the recently made rubber cover copies. Such copies can be seen in section 4.2 in my article "Counterfeits! Antique Golf Balls That Don't Fly" Click Here.
