JACKKNIFE POST-CARD.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 3,1913.

Application filed December 12, 1912. Serial No. 736,450.

To all 'LU/wm t may concern.'

Be it known that I, GEORGE E. MonAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Jackknife Post-Card, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to post cards having an insert secured on a pivot and the objects of my invention are first, to have the inserts move in and out of the card easily; second, to avoid bending or rumpling the inserts; third, to provide a sight opening in the card to expose a portion of the insert; fourth, to make a neat, durable and attractive device and other features to become apparent from the description to follow.

In post cards for advertising or display purposes it is very desirable to have the card yand its contents of the greatest possible capacity which can be mailed for one cent postage and still have it compact and attractive; these features are all contained in a card embodying my invention which consists of a double or folded card forming a pocket in which are secured one or more printed slips of paper which are attached tothe card or pocket by means of a rivet placed at one end so the inserts can be pulled out of the pocket by swinging aboutthe rivet.

To describe my invention so that others versed in the art to which it pertains can make and use the same, I have illustrated it on the accompanying sheet of drawing forming a part of this specification in which Figure 1, is a face view of a post card embodying my invention; F ig. 2, is a similar view showing the inserts partly swung out of the pocket, and F ig. 3, is a sectional view taken on line 3 3 of Fig. 1.

Similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views.

The card comprises the two part-s, the pocket 4 and the insert 5. The pocket is preferably made by folding a card in the tenter and securing its ends together by means of a rivet 6 or otherwise. The insert 5 is preferably composed of a sufficient quantity of thin papers to have the completed post card of such weight that it will pass through the mails for one cent postage.

The pocket or outer case 4 is provided on one or both sides with a perforation 7 so as to expose a portion of the printed surface of the first sheet of the insert 5, which is preferably provided with a picture in such' position that it will appear through the perforation 7.

One edge of the pocket 4 remote from the rivet 6 is provided with a finger notch 8 tofacilitate grasping the edge of the insert 5 to swing it out of the pocket 4. The insert 5 is slightly shorter than. the pocket 4 and is held in position by the rivet 6 as clearly shown in the drawings. The rivet is placed near one end and in the center of the card so that substantially the whole surface of the insert 5 can be exposed to view b v swinging the same a one half revolution about the rivet 6 as a pivot.

The two corners of the insert 5 nearest the rivet 6 are rounded as shown at 9 for the purpose of preventing said corners from catching on the edge of the perforation 7 when the insert is returned from its exposed position to its concealed position in the pocket of case 4. As Cleary shown in Fig. 2, the corners 9 are cut on such a curve that they will not permit any portion of the insert 5to catch on, or be crumpled by contact with the edge of the perforation 7. Experience has shown that unless the corners of the insert 5 are rounded or otherwise curved or beveled they will often jam against t-he edge of the perforation 7 and be crumpled up and sometimes torn, on account of the insert being made of thin paper. Obviously the same advantage could be attained by cutting the corners of the insert on a suitable bevel or slant.

Another advantage I attain by my invention is cheapening the manufacture of the same. This is accomplished by binding or otherwise fastening all the sheets of the insert 5 together before they are placed in the pocket and fastened with the rivet 6. The sheets of the insert are preferably fastened together near that edge adjacent which the rivet 6 is permanently placed as by wire staples l0. The stapling together of the sheets making up the insert 5 greatly facilitates the assembling of the post card, requires less labor and cheapens the finished article besides assuring a neat clean job.

Having thus fully described my invention which I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is zl. In a device of the class described, a card folded to form a pocket, an insertin said pocket, a rivet at one end of the pocket securing said card and insert together so that the insert can swing on said rivet in and out of the pocket, a perforation in said pocket to display a portion of the insert and a corner of the insert nearest the rivet cut so as to prevent the corner from entering any part of the perforation.

2. In a device of the class described,r a pocket formed of two sheets secured together at two opposite ends an insert comprising a plurality of sheets bound together at one end by two or more staples so that the sheets cannot be shifted with respect to one another, said insertl secured to the pocket so as to swing about a pivot into and out of the pocket, a perforation in said pocket to display a portion of the insert, and a corner of the insert nearest the pivn otal point cut so as to prevent the corner of the insert from entering` any part of the perforation.

3. In a device of the class described, a

pocket formed of two sheets secured together at opposite ends, an insert in said pocket comprising a plurality of sheets bound together at one end, a rivet at one end of the pocket securing the pocket and insert together so that the insert is free to swing about said rivet in and out of the pocket, a perforation in one sheet of said pocket to display'a portion of the insert and a corner of the insert nearest the rivet formed so as to prevent the corner from entering any part of the perforation.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in presence of two subscribing witnesses, this 5th day of December, 1912, at Chicago, Illinois.

GEORGE E. MORAN. lVitnesses R. J. JACKER, A. G. A. SCHMIDT.
