GB196 Original set of 12 re-moulded gutta percha golf balls.

Consist of: The A1 Black ball, two Helsby balls, The Ocobo ball, three Unamed balls and three smaller sized unamed balls. The balls were remoulded by "The Forth Rubber Co. Ltd." of Edinburgh and Dundee Scotland. All packed in a original Silvertown golf ball box.

The Forth Rubber must have kept a ball mould for all the popular golf balls of the day in order to remould and impress the balls name on it. In the case of the smaller unamed balls these were probably so badly chipped with strike marks etc that they needed to be moulded in a smaller mould.

Known history: I acquired these together with a set of hickory clubs and bag from the Grandson of the original owner. They have to my knowledge never been up for sale. They are absolutely unique in golf collecting,  i personally have never seen a complete set of remoulded Gutta percha balls, in their original box complete with coloured tissue packing.
