SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 327,565, dated October 6, 1885.

Application filed March 23, 1885. Serial No. 159,794.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ALBERT G. 1VIACK, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of New York,

have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Necktie Holders and Fasteners, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of my invention is to combine to in one device, which may be applied to any description of scarf, a holder for retaining the scarf in its proper place in relation to the collar, and also a pin for fastening the scarf upon the neck.

In the drawings, Figure 1 shows the holder and pin in position in the scarf ready for use. Fig. 2 shows the device separate from the scarf. Fig. 3 is a side view of the same, and Fig. 4 shows the position of the retainer part of the device in relation to the collar-stud when removing the scarf.

Referring to the drawings, a is a pin for adjusting and holding the device in position when placed in a scarf. I) is a long pin, which extends to the lower side of the shield or knot portion of the scarf where the point projects to engage and secure the end of the neckbaud of the scarf. 0 is a loop for engaging with the collar button or stud and holding the scarf 0 in place on the neck of the wearer. cl is a guard-point on the loop 0, which prevents the loop from catching under the head of the stud when the scarf is being removed. 6 is the collarstud. The entire device is formed from a single piece of pin-wire.

The operation of my new device is as follows: The long pin 1) is inserted in the back of the scarf in such a position and manner that the upper turns of the loop 0 will be a little 0 below the upper edge of the scarf, and the point of the pin projects a short distance below the knot part of the scarf or shield. The pin a is then sprung back a little and inserted in the scarf, thus fixing the whole apparatus in position, and the scarf is ready for use. When the scarf is put upon the neck, the end of the neck-band is passed through the knot or loop in the usual way, and its end secured by the end of the pin 1), which operates in the same manner as the pin, which at present is (No model.)

usually sewed into the scarf. The loop a is now slipped under the collar button or stud, and holds the scarf in its proper place on the neck. When a stud is used to fasten the collar, the loop a would, if it were plain and the guard-point (1 absent, be liable to turn under the head of the stud and catch, making it troublesome to remove the scarf. The guardpoint d, however, obviates this difficulty, for when the scarf is removed from the neck of the wearer this point guides the loop clear of the stud and prevents it from turning up under the head. This operation is clearly illustrated by Fig. 4. The pin a prevents the device from being displaced in a vertical direction, while the pic 1) holds it firmly against any horizontal movement.

If desired, the device may be used as a re tainer or holder alone, in which case the pin b would be inserted its entire length in the scarf, the point not being allowed to project.

My improved device is equally applicable to all varieties of made-up scarfs, and may be applied by the wearer and removed from one scarf to another, as desired. It may also be placed in a scarf by the manufacturer and sewed in, thus making it a permanent fixture. If desired, when the device is attached in the latter way, loops may be turned in suitable parts, as in the pins a and b, to receive the stitches, thus rendering its attachment more secure.

Another advantage of my device is that it can be adjusted quickly and easily by the user to adapt the scarf to variouslyshapcd collars, and also if the form of the scarf becomes altered by use.

What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

A scarf retainer orfastener consisting of a loop for engaging with the collar stud or hutton, provided with a guard, 02, a pin, b, adapted to engage and fasten the neckband of the scarf, and a pin, a, bent at a right angle with the pin 12 for securing the device in place on the scarf, substantially as described.
