Does anyone know the age of this suspender clip? Found it metal detecting this afternoon but can't figure out the patent years.

Thank you! Thanks so much for your help!! I thought it was 1894 and 1901 but wasn't sure. But I had a feeling the style didn't look like 1994 and 2001 lol. It was about a foot down too.

Cool find! That's one of those finds I look forward to. It's a personal item worn by the owner. Somewhat regular finds but I don't think I've found any that match any of the others yet...:laughing7:

Welcome to Tnet.

Yep, the dates are right. The second patent was filed by Dwight L. Smith for the Waterbury Buckle Company of Connecticut:

“This invention relates to an improvement in clasps, and particularly to clasps adapted for hose-supporters, and is an improvement on the clasp for which Letters Patent of the United States No. 513,094 were granted January 23, 1894 to William B. Draper.”
