Description

ytuirll Ctedra Letters Patent No. 91,906, dated .Tune 29, 1869.
IMPROVEMENT IN BUTTQNS.
Th Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.-
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LEVI- L. BURDON, of the city and county of Providence, in the State of Rhode Island, have invented a new and useful Improvement in the Mode of Fastening iu Shirt-Buttons; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and
exact description of the same, reference being had to the annexed dra-wings, making a part of this specification, in which- Figure l is a view of a shirt-button, as with my improvement applied to the neck-binding of a shirt, with a collar and neck-tie attached.
Figure 2 is a perspective view of a shirt-button, with my improvement.
Figure 3 are views of the two parts, when separated.
Figures 4 and 5 represent another way of making my device, the solid post A being split as a flexible spring, instead of the tubular post or socket B, the
Y principle being the same.`
' I shall not describe it more minutely.
In the accompanying'drawing' Fig. 2 represents a. 'shirt-button or stud, well known as an article of jewelry, A representing a solid post ot' one part, and B the tubular post 01 socket of the other, as shown on g. 3.
The post A is made the largest near its centre, and tapered straight towards each end, the one for the purpose of entering easily the tubular post or socket B, and the other for being held into B,as the sockethole in B is made-the same to match this taper on A, thus securing the two firmly when pressed together, as shown on iig. 2.
B, fig. 3, is a tube with a hole drilled through each' side, a suitable distance fromA the end, with a slit extending from these holes to the end, forming a springsocket, with the socket-hole smallest at its entrance.
Figure 6 represents a necktie, made with an eyelet in its centre, which eyelet serves as fastening in holding the tie together,instead of sewing, the ordinary way, and used, when worn, in connection with my improyement in the inode of fastening iu shirt-buttons, as represented ou fig. l.
'lo use my invention, the spring-socket B is passed through the button-hole of' a'. shirt-binding from the inside, through the button-hole of a collar and the eyelet in the tie. The post A is then pressed into the tapered spring-socket B, snapping intoits place, is held by the spring-socket closing on the taper nearest the button-plate on post A, thus securing the two button-plates in holding the'shit and collar together, and the necktie in itsplace. l Y
Vhen required to be removed, draw the pst A ont of the spring-socket B, by pulling 'the buttonplates apart. v
XVith my improvement, a shirt-button or stud can be made with two diiierent ornamented plates, and worn with either plate as an ornament, thesame as two pairs of studs, with or withouta necktie, and as sleeve-buttons and bosom-studs, embracing all lthe adwardly from its outer end, with or without the springv slot described, in combination with the back, having its hollow spring-socket B inversely tapered, substantially as described, for the purposes specified.
