Scarce machine-cut mesh gutty, ca. 1880

A scarce machine-cut mesh gutty, ca. 1880. These balls were first to follow the hand hammered gutta balls of the late 1850’s and balls through the early 1870’s.
Later, mounds would be designed with the mesh pattern which led to rapid manufacturing of golf balls.
