CARLTON EARLE MILLER, 01? PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA GOLF BALL I Application filed October 3, 1928. Serial No. 309,931.
The location of golf balls, except when playing on the putting-green, has been and continuesto be a great source of trouble. Various means have been tried for aiding a 5 player or caddy in locating lost balls, such as vided with a plurality of spangles secured within recesses formed on the surface of said ball.
The invention possesses other advantageous features, some of which with the foregoing will be set forth at length in the following description, where I shall outline in full that form of my invention which I have selected for illustration in the drawings, accompanying and formingpart of the present specification. In said drawings, I have shown one form of my invention, but it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to such form, since the invention as set forth in the claims, may be embodied in a plurality of forms.
Referring to the drawings: 1 Figure 1 is a front elevation of a golf ball embodying the objects of my invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical section taken on the plane indicated by the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.
Figure 3 is an enlarged partial section showing the details of construction.
, My invention contemplates the use of any standard or speciallyconstructed golfball, generally designated as 1, which has been provided on its surface with a plurality of earecesses 2. The peripheral walls of these recesses are preferably cut under as at 3 (Fig. Disposed and secured within each of these recesses is a sequin or spangle l; These spangles may be made of any suitable no reflecting material, but preferably take the form of fish scales, which may be readily secured within the recesses 2 by cementing or gluing them in place. In order to pass the spangles past the under cut peripheral walls of the recesses 2, they can be slightly crimped and then when in position, they can be read= ily flattened out to conform to the contour of the floor of the recesses.
ting the peripheral walls of the recesses 2, the chances are lessened of the spangles being loosened at their edges.
Golf balls constructed in accordance with the above description are-economically manufactured and have been found to have a visibility which far exceeds that of the golf ball ordinarily used.
l. A golf ball of the character described provided with a plurality of spangles secured withinrecesses formed on the surface of said ball, the outer surfaces of saidspangles lying below the surface of said ball.
2-. A golf ball of the character described provided with a plurality of spangles secured within recesses formed on the surface of said ball, the outer surface of said spangles lying below the surface of said ball, the
lower surface of said spangles contacting with the lower surface of said recesses In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand CARLTON EARLE MILLER By under-cut-
