Just found it in a box of old stuff in my storage. Made for the United States Tire Co. Pat'd March 1 of '98 and July 6 of '09. This is the oldest one I have seen so far.

    MY BAD!!!! The first date should be 1898 NOT 1889 So Sorry.
    I did some history research and it seems that in 1890, August Schrader's son enters the business and becomes responsible for the experimental work that results in the design of the tire valve. In 1891 Schrader produced the first tire valve for the bicycle. In 1896 Schrader patented the tire valve cap and tire valves for automobiles were introduced. In 1905 Schrader introduced guages to measure tire pressure with accuracy. So.....It seems that although mine has a Pat'd date of 1898 it wasn't introduced until 1905. Those are high resolution pic's and you can really zoom in on the detail. (that's when I realized my mistake). Thank you all for the Loves and Likes. Hmmmm, now where did I put my glasses?
