Matieu Fagard

The last year I had requested patents of Fagard at the office of patents from Brussels.

In addition to those of P.J. Fagard one sent to me two patents of certain Fagard Mathieu with residence to Faubourg St Gilles N° 65 (thus not Pierre Joseph Fagard).

It acts of the patent number 27032 of February 5, 1870 (application for a patent twenty years for a lever clasp applicable to needle rifles) and patent number 28158 of October 11, 1870 (request for a patent of improvement for modification to the lever - clasp applicable to needle rifles patented in its favour).
