IMPROVEMENT IN SLEEVE-BUTTONS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 159,106, dated January 26, 1875; application riled November 30, 1874.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, HERBERT N. MASON and ORVILLE P. RICHARDSON, of Attleborough, in the county of Bristol and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in the Manufacture of Sleeve and Collar Buttons, Studs, 8m, of which the following is a specification:
The invention will first be fully described, and then pointed out in the claim.
Figure 1 is a sectional elevation of a sleevebntton constructed according to our invention. Fig. 2 is a section of the back of the front and the front of the back, and a side elevation of the shank as it appears preparatory to riveting the ends. Fig. 3 is a front elevation of I Fig. 1. Fig. at is a sectional elevation of the cup for the front or the back of the button, with a shoulder for supporting the other part above the bottom to thicken the edge. Fig. 5 is a sectional elevation of a button in which the cup is turned over a wire placed on the flange of the front to augment the bead, and the shank is made, as it may be in some cases, with a solid head for the back of the button; and Fig. 6 is a side elevation of a shank with a solid head for the back, for which a brass or copper rivet may be used, in which case the head will be covered, as in Figs. 1 or 5, with fine metal.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
A is the stud or shank, which connects the shoe B to the front portion, 0, of the stud or button, and which we propose to attach to the back d of the front, and also to the disk 6 of the shoe when a solid-headed rivet is not used, by fitting a tenon on the end through the plate, and heading it down, as shown at f. C is the roll, formed on the margin of the front E by rolling the flange F of the back 01 over on the front, or a flange thereof, to attach the two parts together. G is a wire, inclosed in the said roll to augment it, and to make it more solid and finer for milling or otherwise figuring it ornamentally. H represents the shoulder in the sides of the cup, for supporting the front 6 of the back, or the back d of the front above the bottom, to thicken the edges of the button.
The method of attaching the front E and back d is applicable to pins as well as to buttonsand studs.
The method of attaching the shoe B to the stud A through the medium of the plate 6, besides making a strong and durable article, effects a saving in the cost thereof, in that a base or cheap metal can be used for the plate, and this, too, without detracting from the utility or beauty of the article.
Having thus described our invention, we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent Ina sleevebutton or stud, the combination of the solid shank A, shoe B, plate 6, back d, and front E, as and for the purpose specified.
