APPLIOATION FILED JULY19,1913.
Patented July 28, 1914- WITNESS ES ATTORN EY JOHN WILLIAM BURKE, OF PROCTOR, MINNESOTA.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 28, 1914.
Application filed July 19, 1913. Serial No. 779,931.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN WILLIAM BURKE, a citizenof the United States, residing at Proctor, in the county of St. Louis and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Caps, of which'the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawing.
My invention relates toimprovements in caps.
The object of my invention is to provide a cap having a removable cover constructed and arranged to be quickly removed and reversed, whereby a cap of a different color or form may be readily produced.
Another object of my invention is to provide a cap of this character whereby perfeet ventilation may be afforded the head of the wearer in hot weather, by the partial. or entire removal of the auxiliary cover, yet at the same time afi'ording'protection to the wearer.
A still further object of my invention is to provide a simple, cheap and more effective cap having certain details of structure, as hereinafter more fully shown and described.
In the accompanying drawings the figure is a side elevation of my improved cap,
showing the cover partially removed.
Referring now to the drawings, 1 represents the rim of my improved cap having the usual vizor 1 and also the crown 2. This crown, as shown 1n the drawings, is preferably constructed of a fine mesh mm and se- .cured or supported by the rim 1 in any decolor, and when reversed a totally different cap is presented." The cover 3 is provided with a band 5, having eyelets 5 adapted to receive the ball spring-clasps 4, whereby the cover issecured on the cap with either I surface of the cover on the outside to represent different caps or different colored caps. The eyelets 5 are so arranged, as heretofore stated, that the cover may be secured to the rim of the cap with either surface on the outside. The crown 2 supports the cover 3 and holds it up, as shown in the drawing. By this construction and arrangement of parts it will be seen that the can if desired can be used without the cover. The crown 2 affords some protection-to the head and especially where the cap is used by railroad employees to prevent sparks flying on the head. The cover 3 can be partially removed, as shown in the drawing, whereby the cap is ventilated to any desired extent and this being governed by the distance the cover 3 is removed from the crown. I
Having thus described my invention. what I claim is:
I. A cap comprising a rim, a perforated crown supported by the rim, a plurality of protruding members fixed upon the outer wall of the rim and arranged at proper intervals and a removable cover extending over the crown and having openings eorrespending withthe protruding members for securing the crown to the rim. p
2. A cap comprising a rim, a reticulated crown supported by the rim, a plurality of protruding members fixed upon the outer wall of the rim, designed to engage corresponding apertures within the rim of an auxiliary removable crown.
3. A cap comprising a rim, a perforated crown supported by the rim, a plurality of protruding members fixed upon the outer wall of the rim and a removable cover extending over the crown and having its inner and outer faces of different design, and having openings extendingtherethrough corresponding with the protruding members carried by the rim, whereby the coveri'can be removably secured to the rim with either face outward.
In testimony whereof I hereunto afiix my signature in the presence of two witnesses. JOHN WILLIAM BURKE. Witnesses:
