Am.H.S.M.Co. Sewing Machine

This handheld sewing machine was invented by Adin Mayo Barber. He patented it on October 21, 1884.​ The machine was produced by the American Hand Sewing Machine Company (Am.H.S.M.Co.) of New York. Adin was a resident of Bridgeport, Connecticut so, as a current denizen of The State, I'm especially particular to this machine.
