India Super Golf Balls were made by the India Tyre & Rubber Co in Inchinnan, Scotland. These dozen balls are mint, still in their wrappers. Some of the paper labels have come off the celophane wrapped around each ball, but only 1 label is missing. The loose paper labels have simply been placed on the top of the respective ball. The box is in good shape, the top appearing a bit dirtier than the sides.

These balls are colorful. Each one has a prominent red and black circular logo with the "India" name that matches the circle part of the logo shown on the box itself. Half the balls were made with either red, black, blue, or green "ID" squares and half were not.  The balls and the paper wrappers on each ball are numbered.  The only India Tyre & Rubber Super golf balls documented in McGimpsey's book are these, and they are pictured there, complete with only 11 labels. 

The balls are nice and white.  The Celophane wrappers covering these balls have yellowed to various degrees.
