WIT N 551;

UNITED STA'I ES PATENT OFFICE.

IVILLIAM H. PIERCE, OF SIDNEY PLAINS, NEW YORK.

REVERSiBLE HEEL-PLATE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 341,347, dated May 4, 1886.

Application filed February 25, 1886. Serial No. 193,184. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, \VILLIAM H. PIERCE, a citizen of the United States of America, residin g at Sidney Plains, in the county of Delaware and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Reversible Heel-Plates; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact'description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference beinghad to the accompanying drawings, and to letters or figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

My invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in reversible wear-plates for boots and shoes, the same being especially adapted to be applied on either side of the bottom of a heel, as shown in the drawings.

In the accompanying drawings, which illustrate my invention, Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved heel-plate, showing the same applied. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the heel-plate detached, and Fig. 3 is a transverse section.

A refers to the heel-plate, which is prefer ably made of cast or malleable metal, said metal being of greater thickness at its outer than at its inner edge, so as to provide a heelplate which will be wedge-shaped in crosssection. The upper and lower plain surfaces of the heel-plate are preferably corrugated, so as to prevent slipping when the heel is placed on the ground. The shape of the heelplate is such that it may be reversed or placed on either side of a heel.

B refers to perforations which are formed in I am aware that it is not broadly new to provide a device for leveling worn heels of boots and shoes,'which consists of a curved plate having one of the sides thereof roughened, said plate being flared on its outer edge and wedge-shaped in cross-section, and I lay no claim to such invention.

I claim- 1. The reversible heel plate hereinbefore described, consisting of a curved plate wedgeshaped in cross section, and provided with perforations countersunk on each side for re ceiving the heads of screws, substantially as shown.

2. The hereindescribed reversible heel-plate, formed with convergent opposite surfaces, and wit-l1 perforations countersunk on each side, said surfaces being corrugated or roughened, substantially as shown, and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

WILLIAllI II. PIERCE.
