IANUIACTUBING COMPANY, OF SOUTH ASSIGNOB TO ms DEEBFIELD, KASSACHUSM'I'S, A. VOLUN- mny asaocurrou or uassacnusnrrs.

' rooxm casa Application and April 18,

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Enwam) B. ARMS, a citizen of the United States, residin at South Deerfield in the county of Fran in and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pocket Cases, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to wallets, pocket cases and the like designed to hold money,

papers, passes, cards, etc. It is the chief object of the invention to devise a case of this general character which will have provision or holding, in. a convenient form for display, a number of passes, photographs, samples, or the like, and WhlCl'l can'be folded Into a compact form suitable for the pocket.

The nature of the invention will be readily understood from the following description when read in connection with the accompanying drawings, and the novel features Wlll be particu arly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a case constructed in accordance with the present invention;

Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view on the line 2-2, Fig. 1;

ig. 3 is a cross sectional view through the case when partially folded; and

Fi 4 is a plan view of the case when closed.

The construction shown consists of a substantially rectangular piece of leather, or other suitable material, which forms the body of the case and may be considered as consisting of a central rectangular cover 2 provided with flaps 3 and 4 extending later- 4 ally from opposite sides thereof. This cover is of substantially rectangular form and has a tab 5 extending from one of its ends.

The case shown is designed especially for holding passes, identification cards, photo t5 graphs, samples and the like, and consequentl it is provided with a great number of pockets having transparent walls or windows. Two of these windows 6 and 7, respectively, are provided on the inner surface of the cover 2, each window consisting of a sheet of celluloid secured in a binding 8 of leather, tape, or the like, which is stitched to the cover on three sides, leaving one side of the pocket, in this case that at the right,

two pockets are thus 1922. Serial in. 555,458.

Figs. 1 and 2, open for the introduction of thei card, photograph, sample, or other artic e. 4

Each of the flaps 3 and 4 is provided with four windows, two on each side, those on the inner surface of the flap at 10.and 11, respectivel and those on the corresponding faces of t e flap 4 at 12 and 13. These windows are made in the same general manner as the windows 6 and 7, their unsecured edges preferably being toward the cover 2, as best shown in Fig. 4. The windows in the outer face of the two flaps 3 and 4 are formed by cutting out rectangular pieces of the flap to provide suitable openings, and then closin these openings with sheets of celluloid. l sheets forming the windows 0 posite the windows 11 and '13 are shown in ig. 2 at 15 and 16, respectively.. In this construction provided in each'flap, and the opposite walls of each pocket are transparent, or, in other words, consist of the windows above described. It will be observed that the outer edges of the windows 15 and 16 are secured under the edges 17 of the sheet of material which forms the main body of the case, these edges 17 being turned over and stitched, as clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The inner edges of the windows 15 and 16 are placed under the edges of the sheet 18 of lining material and are sewed both to the body of the case and to the lining. If the mam body of the case does not require a lining, as for instance when it is made of pigskin, then the insideed es of the outer windows on the flaps may secured to the body by binding and stitching them thereto, in the same manner that the left-hand edge, Fig. 2, of the window 7 is secured to the part 2. I

The case is shown in Figs. 1 and 2 in its open condition. flaps 3 and 4 are first folded inwardly, one on the other and both overlying the cover 2," as shown in Fig. 3. Both the flaps and the" cover are then folded on a transverse line lyin between, and parallel to, the adjacent edges of the windows 6 and 7. In this condition the cover 2 encloses all the other parts of the case. The tab 5 is then folded over the upper end of the case and is fastened in this position b means of a snap fastener, one part 19 0 which is se- 3 being designated he celluloid In orderto close it, the

cured in the tab, while the other part 20 is secured in the proper position on the cover 2.

In order to facilitate the folding of the case in the manner described, holes 21 and 22 are formed therein at the intersections of the lines on which the case is folded.

This avoids the bunching of the material.

arm

which otherwise would occur at these The holes preferabl are semi-circ form so that the en of the folded case is Itwillnowbeseen square, as shown in Fi 4. r

at this construction rovides a very convenient case which can be folded into a compact form of suitable size to be carried inthe vest pocket. In the construction illustrated six pockets and ten windows are lfrovided, but for many ur-' poses a sma er number is ample an in some cases, therefore, only one of the flaps 3 or 4 is provided. It is also contemplated that some of the windows may be omitted if desired. It will be appreciated that the illustrated embodiment of the invention may be modified in other particulars without departing from the spirit or scope of the insaid cover and'adaptcd to be folded inwardly upon the cover, said cover and flap thereafter he foldable on a line transverse to the first line of fold to enable the cover to enclose the flap, said flap having two windows in each side thereof, with pockets between said windows, and said cover having two windows on' its inner surface, the cover having anopening therein at the intersection ofsaid lines of fold to facilitate the folding of the device, and cooperating fastenings carried by said tab and cover for secur the cover in its folded condition.

2. A case of the character described, comprising a cover of approximately rectanguar form with a tab 'exten from one end thereof, a flap of substantia y the size 'of the cover extending laterall from each side of said cover and adap to be folded inwardly one upon the other and both su rposed upon the cover, said cover and pe thereafter being foldable on a line transverse to the first lines of fold to enable the cover to enclose both fla each of said flaps having two windows m each side thereof with pockets between said windows and said cover having two windows on its inner surface the cover having 0 nings therein at the mtersections of said es of fold to facilitate the folding of the device, and cooperating faste carried by said tab and cover for securing the cover in its folded condition.
