A bit of an enigma upon referencing the U. S. Patent office description referring to the WASHBURN PAT. MAR. 27. 94 (1894) - FEB 4. 96.(1896) clip simply as a cuff holder with patent 517,084 issued 3/27/1894 as a clasp, playing card and gambling enthusiasts have long sought out these strange little clasps as a period card cheat, hold-out devise popularly utilized by unscrupulous gamblers. Capable of securing the proverbial ace up your sleeve with one end of the clip attached inside the sleeve-opening above the cuff and the other clipped to the card Washburn’s device would serve a slight of hand river boat slicky or gambling hall cheat well whatever the patent intent. The clip was invented by prolific inventor of clips, clasps and fasteners James V. Washburne of Morrison, Ill. A neat little piece of Americana, this hard to find relic of the late 1800s will lay well in any period playing card grouping. Buy with confidence!

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!
