The box is for “Black Line Mesh Silver King” balls. The image on the box shows a mesh ball with a small black line positioned on the center of the pole.  A Black Line Silver King ball is not recorded in any of the golf books to date. The paper in the bottom of the box references the Black Dot Silver King Golf Ball, both mesh and recessed (dimple) pattern.  The Silver King Black Dot mesh was out in 1910, but the Black Dot dimple ball came out in 1924, so this Black Line ball box was produced shortly after that.

The top of this box hinges open.  Hinge and box are in outstanding condition!
