UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
GEORGE K. WEBSTER, OF ATTLEBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 256,775, dated April 18, 1882.
Application filed February 21,1882. (No model.) Q
To all whom "it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE K. WEBs'rER, of Attleborough, in the county of Bristol and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Buttons; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full,- clear, and exact description of the same.
Myinvention relates tobuttons(forcollarsand ends) and studs of the class in which the essential feature is a hinged or pivoted shoe, adapted to turn to a position parallel to or in line with the post or shank to enable the shoe to be passed edgewise through the button-hole. 1n forming these buttons it is usually customary to attach to the face-plate or head of the button a shank or post having integral pivots or a Tshaped lower end adapted to work in bearings formed by depressions in aplate attached rigidly to the shoe of the button, such depressions extending at right angles to the central slot in the plate.
My invention consists in combining with the head or face-plate of a button a rigidly-attached post, having bearing-sockets near its lower end on opposite sides, and ashoe composed of a bottom plate. a spring, and a top plate, having integralh -formed pivots or journals adapted to the bearingsin the pos whereby the shoe may be turned in either direction to a position parallel with the post.
in the drawings, Figure 1 is a section showing the face-plate in side elevation. E g. 2 is a separate view of the post. Fig. 3 is a top view of the top plate of the shoe.
The face-plate A may be made of any suitable material-such as gold, silver, or base metal-and may be used as a setting for any kind of stone or ornamental design.
Rigidly attached to it, by soldering or otherwise, is the post B, formed of a single piece of metal, and preferably of rectangular crosssection. Near the lower end of the post, on the opposite edges or sides thereof, are bearing-sockets 11, )laced exactly opposite each other, and of sufficient depth to receive and retain the pivots, hereinafter described.
0 represents the shoe. It is composed of a slotted top plate, 2, a bottom or cap plate, 3, and an intermediate spring, 4. The plate 2 has a slot extending across it of suftlcient width to admit the fiat spring 4. The plate 2 is stamped or cut out with integral pivots 5 5 on opposite edges of the slot, which enter the sockets in the post.
The completed shoe is formed by crimping the edge of the cap-plate down over the edge of the top plate and spring, the parts thereby It will be observed that in constructing the several parts of my button, a saving of material is efiected over the ordinary method offorming thepivots on the post. Thepostbeingcomposed otcoin parativel y thick material ,the waste necessary in stamping the projecting pivots forms an appreciable article of loss. When the post is plain and the pivots are formed on the shoe, however, no extra waste is caused, since the posts have no projections, and such pivots on the plate are composed of metal that would by the old method be removed. There is, hence, a considerable saving of material in stamping the posts, and a. less but still appreciable saving I11 forming the plate.
1 am awaie that a shank or post of a button has been provided Wllll a slot adapted to engage with a tongue formed in th face-plate of the shoe whereby the shoe ma-\ be turned at right angles to its normal position; and I am aware that raised hearings have been formed in the lace-plate, and that a post having an enlarged head and transverse perforations has been jonrnaled in said bearings by independent pins passing through lie-rings in the post, and I do not claim either of the devices mentioned.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim 18- 1. A button composed of a head, a post having oppositely-placed sockets, and a shoe, the inner plate of whicL is slotted and provided Wll h op 'lositely-placed integral pivots adapted to the said sockets, for the purpose set forth.
2. The described button, consisting ofafaceplate, a post having sockets 1 1, and a shoe composed of a cap-plate and a top plate, 2, having integral pivots projecting from opposite sides of a slot therein adapted to thesockets in the post, and a spring, 4, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Witnesses: G. K. WEBSTER.
