July 16 1864 Scientific American - CUSTERíS HORSE-SHOE Patent

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Tender with some tattering as good evidence of age and originality, yet nicely displayable with lots of eye appeal, this approximately 10 X 13 inch, July 16, 1864 weekly issue of The Scientific American is complete and contains an account of George Custerís U. S. Patent improved horse shoe design. An appealing design line drawing is presented over the bold heading CUSTERíS HORSE-SHOE with an accompanying description of the design and intended improvement over the old standard design. The little known George Armstrong Custer effort in the patent arena has been largely forgotten and lost in time with what may have been a nail in the coffin with respect to historical credit being a subsequent transcription error from period hand written 1870 U. S. Census records. Very simply the name of George A. Custer was mistakenly transcribed in a research reference as George C Custer. This simple transcription inaccuracy from the original record led to a conclusion published in Mike OíKeefeís Custer, the Seventh Cavalry & the Little Big Horn that the subject patent was not issued by George A. Custer but another George Custer. A look at renderings of original hand written census records will show that George A. Custer was the only George Custer with a Monroe, Michigan address as provided in official U. S. Patent documents. (This offering will come with convincing research notes with respect to the above.) Framed up or simply laid out with Civil War or Western Indian War material, this piece will add A neat piece of Americana! Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
