Patent Patter

Forgive me if this has been discussed before but I was wondering if a glove with this patent design exists? The Ken-Wel patent below shows lacing through all four fingers and the thumb.

This is the sans pinky lacing design Ken-Wel went with for their 560 Dazzy Vance model in 1925.

Original Ken-Wel 560 Dazzy Vance ad from 1925.

Did Ken-Wel scrap that 1924 design patent or does a glove like that exist?

:!: Fun Fact: The Ken-Wel name had come from the Kennedy brothers’ last name and a partner named Wells. Wells pulled out of the venture before the company was started in 1919 but the Kennedy brothers liked the name so they decided to keep it.

Here's the glove. The pinky tab had become detached at some point.
Here's the story and more pics. http://www.vintagebaseballgloveforum.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4441&p=31624#p31624

Thanks Mike, awesome. I had a feeling this was already brought up but a search brought up nothing for me.
