To all the patent searchers out there. Here is a challenge for you. This Salesman Sample Farm Gate has caused me some frustration in the patent search category. I would love to have the patent to go with it. Your help would be a blessing. Two similar gates are in my collection and appear in separate posts on this site. The unique feature of this gate is that it is reversible. The gate can be opened on one side of the posts and closed on the other side. It also tilts and lifts. Very versatile.
PATENT FOUND!!! April 24, 2019. Miles H. Larimore of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Patent No. 698,717, April 29, 1902. I see the model is missing both Fig 3, #25 latch locks. May be beyond my skills to recreate them.
