In April of last year, I managed to pick up a 1885 Weir patent, that instead of being marked Peerless with the patent date, was marked PAT. APL’D FOR.
While the 1885 Peerless doesn’t turn up often, the PAT. APL’D FOR version was a new discovery, and made it into JM presentation on newly patent discoveries in 2016 at the AGM, as well as my best 6 for 2016.
(The PAT A’PLD For version is pictured on the left)
A neat variation of the patent, I was quite pleased to add it to the collection.
But, as of a few days ago… the Peerless-less Peerless has a Peerless-less peer.
This version also is marked PAT. APL’D FOR.
And, it worked tremendously last night on a bottle of Goosecross Cabernet!
The peerless Peerless now has a peer!
