Filed June 25, 1971, Ser. No. 157,077

Term of patent 14 years Int. Cl. D21-02 US. Cl. D34S QQ PAGE 2 FIG. 1 is a top plan view of a golf ball, showing our new design;

FIG. 2 is a front elevational view of the FIG. 1 ball;

FIG. 3 is a view of a typical portion of the FIG. 1 view of the ball but developed and shown on a plane surface;

FIG. 4 is a view, to an enlarged scale, of a depression having a hexagonal base;

FIG. 5 is a sectional view to an enlarged scale, through the cover of the ball and a portion of the interior wind ing of the ball to represent a depression having a hexagonal base;

FIG. 6 is a view, to an enlarged scale, of a depression having a pentagonal base; and

FIG. 7 is a sectional view, to an enlarged scale, through the cover of the ball and a portion of the interior winding of the ball to represent a depression having a pentagonal base.

If the ball as shown in FIG. 1 were rotated 180 in the direction of the arrow from top to bottom, the view then on top would appear identical with FIG. 1. Also, if the ball shown in FIG. 2 were rotated in the direction of the arrow from left to right in five 72 increments each such elevational view of the ball would appear identical with FIG. 2.

We claim:

The ornamental design for a golf ball, substantially as shown and described.
