ROBERTMALZAHN', on WEST zennnwrsoonsin,

IOCKETBOOK.

Application filed Mav2, 1922. Serial No. 557,829.

TaaZZ whom it may concern Be. itknown that I, RoeEnrMALzaHN, a-

citizen ofthe United States, and 'I'GfSiClGIlt of lVest Bend, in thecounty of Washington.

and-State of \Visconsin, have invented certain. new and useful improvements in Rocketbooks; and I do hereby declare that the following is a, full. clear, and exact description thereof.

The invention relates to pocket-booksof. a type in-which bills are conveniently folded.

Difficulty. has been. experienced hitherto withebill'folds by reason of the fact that when the foldis openedforthe removal of a" bill, theentire contents are exposed. This involvesa serious,disadvantage, since it is oftentimes deslrableto conceal money of large amountsfor-various reasons.

The invention comprises a cover, a major ception of bills of smaller denomination.

The ends of the-bills are adapted'tobe folded over as-thepockets are not long enough to receive an entire bill. Flaps are provided for coveringtheends of the bills.

A primary object of the invention is the provision of means adapted to conceal part of the contents, one of the pockets remaining invisible, while the other is being opened, and yet to permit ready access to the bills and the removal thereof from either pocket. To extract a bill the pocket-book is merely opened and the flap bent backwardly to expose the ends of the bills which may be withdrawn by the hand.

The invention has as a secondary object, a compact and neat arrangement of parts. As the pockets are not of bill length, the fold is not long only one line of fold, so that its dimensions are such as to adapt it for ready reception in a pocket. As there is only one line of fold. the resulting arrangement, after folding is comparatively thin so that there is no bulgl Vith the above and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, my invention resides in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts, substantially as hereinafter described and morev particularly defined by the apand the pocket-book has pended claims, it being understood thatsuch changes 1n the precise embodimentof the herein disclosed 1nvent on may; be made ascomewithin the scope of the claims.

Inthe accompanying drawing, I have illustrated one complete example of the physgj ical embodiment of the present; invention: constructed accordlng to the bestmode l" have so far devised for the practical .application of the which v, y

Figure 1 is a plan of the insideof the entire structure. Figure 2 1s a side view with fold members bent to reveal the pockets.v

Figure 3 1s a cross section on-thedine- 3,-3 of Figure 2.

Figure 4 is a view of the pocket-book;

closed. I g p Flgure 5 .1s'a-v1ew ofvanouspmces m separated relation.

Cover 10 is providedwith a post. llvand a socket 12 adapted to receive the. post. For convenience in description, the end on the left in the Figures 1=and;2will be referred to as the left-end; the other. end is-the-right,

end.

line 14 at the'right end edge of cover 10 Flap 15 is, also, secured along this line.

Outer fold member 13 is, also, secured along the side of cover 10 by row of stitching16.,

Two sides of the outer fold member are unsecured so that a pocket 17 is formed be tween the outer fold member and cover 10. Inner fold member 18 is secured to the outer fold member 13 by row of stitching 19 and by row 20. Row 20 cooperates, also, with,

rows of stitching 21-21 to secure pocket member 22 in position. Inner fold member An outer fold member '13 is secured along Pockets 17 ill) row of stitching 25 and is adapted to cover the folded ends of the bills. 7 Pocket 23 receives bills of larger denomination which are folded at the right end, the ends be, ing covered by flap 15. v

Pocket member 26 is secured to inner fold member 18 by rows of stitching 27, 28, and 28'. The pocket-book is designed to be folded on a line midway between pocket members 26 and 22 and socket 12 cooperates with post 11 to maintain parts in closed po sition. When it is desired to remove a bill, end 29 of cover 10 is released from post 11 and the pocket-book is unfolded. The bills remain invisible, however, flaps 15 and 24; normally lying flat.

If it is desired to remove a bill of small denomination, flap 24 is moved upwardly, exposing the ends of the bills. On the removal of any desired number, the flap is permitted to assume normal lowered posi tion and the pocket-book maybe closed. In such an operation the bills contained in pocket 17 remain concealed. Obviously, if it is desired to remove a bill from pocket 17, flap 15 may be merely moved upwardly. In either case, the quantity of money in the pocket-book cannot be determined by an observer. When the bill-fold has been opened,

the cards, or other articles, retained by minor pocket members 22 and 26 may be readily removed. The pocket-book, as an entirety, folds only on the line intermediate between minor pocket members 22 and 26. Consequently, there are only two thicknesses involved and the resulting arrangement is compact and well adapted to the dimensions'of a pocket.

I claim 2- 1. The combination of an elongated, flexible member, a rectangular flexible member having two adjacent sides secured to said first mentioned member, and a second rectangular member having a pair of adjacent sides secured to said first mentioned rectangular member along the free edges of said first mentioned rectangular member.

2. The combination of an elongated, flexible member, a rectangular flexible member secured to said first mentioned member along two adjacent sides of said second mentioned member, two adjacent sides of said second mentioned member being free, a third flexible member secured along two adjacent sides to said second flexible member, said third flexible member being rectangular and having two adjacent free sides, said third flexible member and said second flexible member forming a pocket and said second flexible member cooperating with said first flexible member to form an additional pocket, and a pair of oppositely disposed fiaps secured along one edge of each thereof and adapted to overlap the ends of said pockets.

3. The combination of an elongated, flexible member, an outer fold member secured thereto along two adjacent edges of said fold member, an inner fold member secured to said outer fold member along two free edges of said outer fold member, a pair'of flaps, each having an edge secured to said first mentioned flexible member adapted to overlap the ends of said fold members, a post carried by said first mentioned flexible member, and a socket carried by first men tioned flexible member adapted to receive said post. 1

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand at l/Vest Bend,

in the county of Washington and State of Wisconsin.
