Degener's Liberty Patents

Frederick Otto Degener received three United States patents related to the Liberty platen press. Erik Desmyter provided scans of the ten pages that document them.

Erik writes: "Here's some more interesting Degener & Weiler Liberty stuff which I obtained some time ago with some help from Stephen Nelson who traced and downloaded these patents starting from the patent dates I gave him on the official website."
