UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

SAMUEL S. STEWART, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.

BA NJO-THIMBLE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 413,579, dated October 22. 1889. Application filed June 10,1889. Serial No. 318,701. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, SAMUEL S. STEWART, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Banjo-Thimbles, which improvement is fully set forth in the following specification and the accompanying drawings.

My invention consists of a banjo-thimble having a removable finger or striking-piece, for purposes hereinafter set forth. Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a banjo-thimble embodying my invention, the same being shown in operative position. Fig. 2 represents a perspective view of the thimble on an enlarged scale, the parts thereof being separated. Fig. 3 represents a longitudinal section thereof. Fig. 4 represents a perspective view of a modification.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several figures.

Referring to the drawings, A designates a banjo-thimble, the same consisting of a ring adapted to embrace the finger, one face of the ring having a keeper or socket B, which is secured to or formed with the ring and receives the striking-piece or finger C. It will be seen that the piece 0 may be readily fitted in the socket B, and thus connected with the thimble, and the same may be easily removed by being Withdrawn from the socket-a matter of convenience should said piece break or it is desired to pack the thimble or carry the same in the pocket. Either the piece G or the socket B may be tapering, so that said. piece may be tightened in position.

The piece 0 may be made of horn or other suitable material of flexible or elastic nature, and the finger constructed of metal; but to the material of which either part is made I do not limit myself.

In Fig. 4 the socket is substituted by lips which are bent up from the metal of the ring.

Having thus described my invention, What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. A banjo-thimble having a removable striking-piece or finger, substantially as described.

2. A banjo-thimble consisting of a ring having a socket and a separate striking-piece, the latter being adapted to be fitted in said socket, and thus connected with the ring, substantially as described.

SAMUEL S. STEW'ART.
