 2         RAFFEL SYSTEMS, LLC   v. MAN WAH HOLDINGS LIMITED



                  ______________________

     Before REYNA, HUGHES, and STOLL, Circuit Judges.
 PER CURIAM.
      Raffel Systems, LLC appeals the decision of the Patent
 Trial and Appeal Board concluding that claim 1 of U.S. Pa-
 tent No. D821,986 is unpatentable under the on-sale bar.
 The Board found that an email sent by patent owner Raffel
 offered for sale an embodiment of the claim in small quan-
 tities on-demand over a year before the priority date of the
 patent. We have considered the appellant’s arguments that
 the Board’s on-sale determination was unsupported by sub-
 stantial evidence and find them unpersuasive. We there-
 fore affirm.
                        AFFIRMED
