DESIGN FOR A HORSESHOE-CALK.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 28,853, dated June 14, 1898.
Application filed February 10,1897. Serial No. 622,859. Term of patent 14 years.
To all whom zit may concern.-
Be it known that I, Tnonxs J. GILBRIDE, of Scranton, in the county of Lackawanna, and in the State of Pennsylvania, have invented a certain new and original Design for I'Iorseshoe-Calks; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view in an inverted position of a call: embodying my design, andthig. 2 is a plan View thereof.
Letters of like name and kind refer to like parts in each of the figures.
The object of my invention is to providea new and original shape or design for removable horseshoe-calks; and to this end said invention consists in the design for a horse shoe-calk, substantially as hereinafter specifled.
My design, as shown in the drawings, is embodied in a toe-calk, the body A of the call; having its outer face vertical and its inner face inclined upward and rearward in a straight line for a portion of the way toward the top and then curved concavely, as at a. On the upper side of the body, at its transversecenter, is a projecting stud B. On each side of the body A, at the top thereof, there is an extension or flange O, that projects obliquely rearward from a corner of the body and has its extremity rounded on the arc of a circle and perforated with a hole or opening 0. The sides of each flange or extension 0 are coneavely rounded or curved, and the rear face of the body A, at the top, is likewise curved, the curve thereof being a continuation of the contiguous side of the extension or projection C, so that thus the configuration from the extremity of one projection to the other is a simple concave curve. It will he noted that the two projections extend from the body of the calk in diverging lines. Thethickness of each projection gradually decreases toward its extremity from the point of its connection with the body of the calk, and the curve a extends overa portion of the same.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is- The design for a horseshoe-calk, substantially as shown and described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 2d day of February, 1897.
THOMAS J. GILBRIDE.
