You can look it up at google/patents. I put the patent number in the tag region of your question and that causes a link to come up in the right column here. From there you can download a pdf of the patent. If you want to know more there is a way to order the "file wrapper" from the USPTO or other companies that offer that service. It can get expensive depending on its length. A file wrapper contains copies of all of the back and forth between the applicant and the USPTO.


It expired long ago and is in the public domain.
