RAPHAEL BUCK, on NEW YORK, NY.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 506,100, dated October 3, 1893.
Application filed July 1,1893. Serial No. 479,401. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, RAPHAEL BUCK, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Hat of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description. Y
The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved hat or similar head gear, which is simple and durable in construction and arranged to permit a free circulation of air over the head of the wearer.
The invention consists of certain parts and details, and combinations of the same, as will be hereinafter described and then pointed out in the claim.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both the figures.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the improvement with the crown supported above A the body and with parts broken out; and Fig.
2 is a sectional side elevation of the same with the crown closed on the body.
The improved hat is provided with a body A, having the usual rim B, and provided with an adjustable crown 0, adapted to close upon the said body A, or be suspended above the same to form a space between the opposite edges of the body and crown, as illustrated in Fig. 1. In order to adjust the crown, any
nected at its upper end with the center or middle partof the crown C. Now, by turning the screw rod G in one direction, the crown O is lifted above the body A, and when the said screw rod is turned in an opposite direction the crown 0 moves downward, nearer to or in complete contact with the upper edge of the body A, as illustrated in Fig. 2. The arms E are curved upwardly, so as to support the nut F and screw-rod G a sufficient distance above the top of the wearers head, to prevent contact of the device with the head of the wearer at the time the crown O is in its lowermost position, as illustrated in Fig. 2.
It will be seen that when the crown O is supported above the body A, as illustrated in Fig. 1, a circular space is formed between the edges of the body and crown, for the free circulation of air through the hat and above the wearers head to keep the latter cool and ventilated.
Having thus fully described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- A hat comprising arbody, a crown made separate from the body, and adapted to en- RAPHAEL BUCK.
