DESIGN FOR A GAME-BOARD.

To alt whom it may concern:

llc it known that I, Erma t. SHERMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Montrose, in the county otSnsqnehanna and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Design; for Game-Boards; 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 theart to which it appcrt'ains to make and use the same.

My design especially relates to that class of gameboards for use in playing quoits.

In the drawing the design is represented as stamped or printed upon a square piece of cloth.

The design is printed or stamped with a black background containing a number of white concentric rings a, the central one of which is a little larger-than a qu0it,and concentrically within it is a white circle b. One of the outer rings a is broken at equal intervals, preferably at four different places, at which places are small white rings (1 of the same size as the central ring a. ring a the rings 1! contain concentric white circles. In the spaces between each of the concentric rings are white circles c,similar to circle I), and they form with the latter a radial row of white circles. The white circles preferably each contain a numeral, as shown.

\Vhat I claim is The herein described design for gameboards, the same consisting of a series of concentric rings, small rings arranged in concentric series at regular intervals and intersected by one of the concentric rings, said small rings and the inner concentric ringcontaining small circles, and a radial series of small circles arranged one between each pair of concentric rings, as shown and described.

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

ELIJAH SHERMAN.
