DESIGN FOR COMPASS-CARDS.
Specification forming part of Design No. 7,S37,dated November 3, 1874; application filed Octoberl, 1F74 [Term of Patent 14 yours.)
To all whom `it may concern Be it known that l, DAVID BAKER, of BosA ton, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented a certain new and useful Design for Compass-Cards, of which the following is a specification:
The nature of 1n y design is fully represented in the accompanyingl illustration, to which reference is made.
A A represent portions of a eoinpasscard of usual design, showing divisional points, and B B B B represent portions of a compass-card embracing the cardinal points and others, represented by letters of large size; and it consists of short points curved outwardly upon each side from point to base, which is broad and straight, and rests upon the inner circle or annular line, and is indicated by the usual letters, which are large and placed directly beneath the points which they designate, and of the saine color as the points, being black upon a white groundwork.
I prefer to make the cardinal and other four large points black, as well as the letters denoting such points, or the reverse order, white letters and points on a black groundwork; but I do not consider the color an essential feature in my invention; but I prefer to have the eight points and letters of the saine color.
The distinctive character of my design is found in the seven short points and large letters placed beneath their inner ends, which are broad and rest on a circular line.
What l claim as my invention is- A design for a compass-card, in which the seven points and letters are formed, as above described, and substantially as shown in the accompanying illustration.
