I didn't want to redirect attention from the previous thread " Auction of 15 Lefevers in PA" so I'm starting a new one on single triggers used by LAC with the hope that others will share thier information as well.
This is what I know: Out if all the catalogs /ads etc. that I have, the earliest listing of a single trigger being an option is in 1898. There is no cut (drawing) or reference to the one being used during this early time period.

Most of the single triggers used on Lefever guns that I have observed are one of the Infallible triggers and a lot of those I have observed as having the 1907 patent date. It's my belief that these guns were assembled by Ithaca due to that patent date being used. I believe that once Ithaca purchased the LAC that that ended whatever agreement was made between the Durstons and Charles. Which would explain the postponement in granting the patent. Keep in mind that patent itself by Charles was "Assigned to the LAC".

While searching through patents awhile back I came across patent # 858581 by L L Curtis in 1907. Although I have never heard of this type of single trigger being used on a Lefever that doesn't mean that it wasn't. Take a look at Fig. 2, this to me, in my opinion, was designed for a Lefever gun.
