l MQ! A lllllllllllllllllllllllll l' WTNESSES UNTTED STATES PATENT @FETCH BYRON HENRY COOLEY, OF CAMPBELLSPORT, WISCONSIN.
SIGN.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, BYRON HENRY CooLEY, citizen of the United States, residing at Campbellsport, in the county of Fond du Lac and State of Visconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Signs, of which the following is a specification.
This invent-ion relates to signs, and has for its object to provide an improved sign especially adapted for village and country use, and characterized by a construction permitting signs of different kinds to be attached at various angles, as will more fully appear from the following description.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of the sign and Fig. 2 is a section thereof on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1. Figs. 3 and 4 are details of modifications.
Referring specifically to the drawings, the standard G preferably comprises a pipe or hollow circular tubular structure which may be galvanized iron pipe. This is provided at the bottom with a tee 7 and nipples 8 for anchorage, and the lower end of the standard will be inserted in the ground in an obvious manner. At the top the standard receives al cap which has a circular socket 9 fitting over the end of the pipe and held by a set screw 10, so that the head may turn at any angle and fix there. Projecting upwardly from the socket is the body 11 of the head, provided with vertical slots 12 extending through the saine and preferably at a right angle to each other. The number of slots may be increased if desired. The slots are closed at both ends and the head is provided at the top with a cap 12.
The sign boards are indicated at 13 and are attached to the head by means of bolts 14 and brackets 15. The brackets are grooved where the inner ends of the sign boards fit between the same and the bolts extend crosswise through the slots and the brackets fastened in desired position by tightening the nuts on the bolts. The brack- Speccation of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 519,030.
ets can be adjusted up or down according to the width of the sign boards, and several boards can be attached extending in different directions, the manner of attachment permitting quick and easy substitution of new or different parts. The variation in direction of the slots enables the post to be used at almost any corner. For durability, all the parts will preferably be made of metal, although the boards if desired may be made of wood. Aside from the head, which will be made of malleable or cast iron, and the brackets, the sign can be constructed of stock or other parts easily' obtainable. In a modified form shown in Fig. 3 a metal plate is used, instead of the tee and nipples, the bottom of the standard passing through the plate and being fastened thereto by a bead or otherwise, the plate being indicated at 7 a.
In the modified form shown in Fig. 4, instead of attaching the boards by brackets, they are secured directly to the side of the hlead, by bolts 14ZL extending through the s ots.
Vhat I claim as new is:
1. A sign comprising a post having a slotted head, brackets, boards supported by the brackets, and fastening devices for the brackets, extending through the slots and adjustable up and down therein to desired position to hold the boards.
2. A sign comprising a post, a head having vertical slots therethrough at various angles, brackets projecting outwardly from the head, boards engaged at opposite edges between the brackets, and bolts extending through the slots and holding the brackets to the head.
In testimony whereof, I aiiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
