On March 1, 1973, appellees’ attorney mailed from East Hartford, Connecticut, to the Patent Office in Washington D.C., a package containing four patent applications. Each of the applications had previously been filed in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The applications were date-stamped “March 8, 1973,” by the Patent Office.
