Pat. No. 54,820 model at Hagley Museum
The main feature of the patent is the rotatable adjusting jaw piece on one "arm" of the tongs. The specifications differentiate this design from H.M. Clark's Sept. 8, 1857 patent (no. 18,135).

Ken Cope's "American Wrench Makers 1830-1930" posits that Page, Wilson & Co. produced the tongs based on the assignment. The patent model is in the collection of the Hagley Museum (Wilmington, DE).
