Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented June 26, 1906.
Application filed September 11, 1905- Serial No. 277,946.
zen of the United States, residing at Erie, in
the county of Erie and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Im rovements in Target-Stickers, of which the ollowing is a specification.
This invention relates to target-stickers; and it consists in certain improvements in the construction thereof, as will be hereinafter fully described, and pointed out in theclaim.
Where paper targets are used on rifle-ranges it is customary to place a sticker over the target where it has been penetrated by a bullet, so as to make certain where the succeeding hits are made. The targets are 'usually formed with alternating white and black rings, and it is desirable to have the stickers that are placed on the white rings white and those on the black rings black. To accomplish this, it has been customary to have two kinds of stickers, each gummed on one side, one being white on the opposite side and the other black. The handling of these difierent kinds of stickers occasions some inconvenience and requires diflerent receptacles and means for handlin them.
The object of t e present invention is to do away with the inconvenience of the two kinds of stickers and at the same time do away with the necessity of applying um or paste to a single sticker adapted or use either on the black or white portion of the target.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings as follows:
Figure 1 shows a side elevation of a sticker;
Fig. 2, a similar view-of the opposite side of v the sticker.
One side A of the sticker is left white, and the opposite side B is colored black. Of course any distinguishable colors may be used to suit the different colors used on the target. Not only are the two sides of the sticker provided with distinguishing-colorings, but both sides of the sticker are gummed, so that it may be applied either with the black or white side out, according to where it is placed on the target. This one kind of sticker furnishes all that is necessary both for attaching the sticker to the target and for supplying the variety of colors for the different parts 0 the target.
What I clai1n as new is A target-sticker gummed on both sides, and having its sides provided with distinguishing-coloring, corresponding to those on the target, whereby one kind of sticker furnishes all that is necessary for supplying the variety of colors for the different parts of the said target.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
