Specication forming part of Design No. 11,157, dated April 15, 1879; application filed January 29, 1879. [Term of patent 7 years] To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, NELsoN M. SEEPARD, of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented, originated, and designed a Chain; and I do hereby declare that the following, taken in connection with the drawings which accompany and forni part of this speciication, is a description of myinvention sufficient to enable those skilled in the art to practice it.

The nature of my design is fully represented in the accompanying` drawing, to which reference is made.

Heretofore watch, vest, or neck chains have been designed of a great variety of patterns, producing articles of manufacture both ornamental and usef'ul, but, by reason of the prevailing customs, soon become unmarketable, and others of a different shape and formation are desired.

The object of my design is to more particulai-ly furnish a chain that will better meet the requirements of a certain large class of people who desire to have chains for use and ornament illustrative of their profession, as well as to supply the almost never-ceasin g demand of the many for new, odd, and useful articles for ornamentation and use and for other purposes.

The design consists of a chain for vest or neck wear composed of various parts, representing a gun, shells, glass balls, shot, cartridges, links, and a swivel or clasp.

A is a bar, made in the shape of a breechloading gun, in position to receive the shell or cartridge. B1 B2 B2 B4 B5 B6 are links which connect the bar or gun A to the shell O1. E1 is an eye or link fastened to the gun A. E2 is an eye fastened to the shell C1. B7 B2 B9 B10 are also links. B7 is fastened to either of the links B1 B2 B3 B4 B5 B6, and B10 to the eye E3, fixed to the shell O2.

B11 B12 B13 B11 B15 B16 B11 B13 are links that connect the shells C1 O3 G2 C5 O6 and the glass balls F1 F2 F3 FA1 together, by being linked through the eyes E4 E5 E6 E1 EB Eg E111 E11 E12 E1s E12 E15 E15 E17 E11KE19. E211is an eye in shell G5. E21 is an eye in shot G1.

Shell O5 is connected to shot G1 by the link B19. E22 is an eye in shot G1, through which the link B211 passes, connecting the shot G1 to the eye E22, fastened to the cartridge H1.

.Link B21 connects cartridge H1 to shot G2 bypassing through the eye E22,.fastened to the cartridge H1, and through the eye E25, fastened to the shot G2. Link B22 connects shot G2 t0 cartridge H2 by passing through eye E25, fastened to shot G2, and eye E21, fastened to cartridge H2. Link B23 connects cartridge H2 to shot G3 by passing through eye E211, fastened to cartidge H2, and eye E29, fastened to shot G3.

E211 is an eye fastened to shot G3, through which the link B24 passes, and link B25, connecting link B25 to link B25, and B26 to B21, and B27 to B22, and B28 to B211, and B22 to ring K in swivel or catch M. l

Any number of links, shells, glass balls, cartridges, and clusters of shot, and any number of shot in a cluster, may be varied, to accommodate the size, weight, and length of chain desired; or the chain may be made up of gun, shells, glass balls, links, and swivel or catch, or may be made up of gun, cartridges, shells, links, and swivel or catch.

In place of O2, a cartridge or a glass ball may be used. Any kind of a swivel or catch may be used in place of the one illustrated.

The glass balls are intended to represent those used by Sportsmen at shooting-matches.

The links may be of any form, and any of the parts illustrated and explained, that constitute the whole, may be of any size or weight, and made of any suitable material, cast or molded, struck up, each part solid or hollow, or partially hollow, or formed of pieces and soldered or brazed together, or made in any other manner.
