    Newest addition to my Patent Model Gate collection.from a recent auction. It is 1/2 of a model that survived with the patent tags still attached using "red tape." The tags are very brittle, but I suppose I would be as well if I were 138 years old. The model is 6" x 9". Stay tuned as I plan to reconstruct the model to include the missing parts shown on the patent drawing. Like many men I have a thing about fixing things. Finding the missing parts will be a challenge. May have to fabricate them. I love a challenge. As you can see, some of the missing parts are portrayed below ground level. Plan to display the model with that in mind.

    UPDATE: JUNE 2016 - ADDED PHOTO OF RESTORED GATE CREATED TO DEPICT HOW I THINK THE COMPLETE MODEL MAY HAVE LOOKED.

      Thanks scottvez. Will definitely update the photos when the job is done. May take awhile. By the way what looks like white paint on the top rail turned out to be glue from a label. It came off easily. Looks much better. The photo is the "before".
