To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional view of the head of the same. I

My invention relates to nails, spikes, and like devices; and it consists in forming in the head of said nail or spike a depressed or countersunk portion adapted to receive the point of a nail set or punch, as I will hereinafter fully describe and claim.

To enable others skilled in the art to make and use my invention, I will describe its construction and the manner in which the same is carried out.

punch slipping is obviated and the consequent damage to the contiguous wood-work avoided. Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s-

A nail or spike having a countersink or depression formed in its head, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

JOSEPH WILLOMON HIGGS.
