more on the Browne

As mentioned yesterday, in 1908 patent #896,577 was awarded to C.W. Reynolds for a combination tool, and the patent was assigned to Browne and Dowd MFG. Co.

Yesterday, a deal was struck for an example of the Reynolds, that carries the 1892 patent date, the 1895 patent date, and the 1908 patent date.

Thanks for the deal Don!
