GUY 0. TANTLINGER, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR TO EMIL 'WEISSBROD & SONS, INC., OF GREENFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS, A CORPORATION" OF MASSACHUSETTS.

DETACHABLE CABDCASE F031 EOCKEI'BOOKS.

Application filed November 30, 1,923.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GUY O. TANTLINGER, a citizen-of the United States, residing at 1402 Foster Avenue, Ghicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Improvements in Detachable Cardcases for Pocketbooks, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to pocket books of various types and more particular ly to cases which are designed for holding and individually displaying such articles as identification cards, passes, photographs or the like and which are adapted to be removably attached to a pocket book or bill fold. Y j. I I

Many pocketbooks, particularly those of the bill told type, are provided with a pocket especially designed to hold identification cards, passes or the like, such pockets usually having a transparent side so. that when the pocket book is opened or unfolded the printed matter upon the card will be visible through said transparent side while the card remains entirely within the pocket. Usually only one of these transparent card pockets is" provided, and this to the exclusion of a pocket or compartment available for other purposes, although certain types of bill folds are occasionally manufactured with two or more transparent card pockets incorporated therein. [Many people howevert'requently have occasion to carry at least several cards such, for example, as lodge cards, passes or the like, and are unable to purchase pocket books having adequate provision for holding and separately Furthermore a person may wish to carry different numbers of such cards at different times, sometimes carrying, say ten or twelve and at other times only one or two cards or perhaps none at all.

The principal object of the present invention is to provide an article in the nature of an attachment for an ordinary pocket book by the use of which the pocket book may be adapted at will to carry a card or Serial No. 677,860.

'vide a case or holder of the character above referred to which may be readily attached to a pocket book, bill told or the like; which, when attached, will appear as an integral part or permanently incorporated member of the pocket book; and which may be readily detached from the pocketbook whenever desired.

rinother'object ot the invention is to provide a case for cards or the like which is so constructed that it may be detachably scoured to apocket book or the like without involving the permanent securement'to the pocketbook ot a fastening device or devices of any sort. I p I Other objects of the invention and the features of construction by which they are attained will be apparent from the following description of the certain embodiments thereof illustrated in the accon'ipanying drawings in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a case illustrating one embodiment of the present invention;

, Figs. 2 and 3 are respectively perspective and elevational views of a case illustrating another embodiment of the invention;

Fig. 4 is transverse sectional view of the case shown in Figs. 2- and 3; and

Fig. 5 is an elevational view of a pocket book of the bill told type showing the application thereto ot the case illustrated in Figs. 2, 8 and 4. I

' Referring first to'the embodiment of the invention illustrated in Figs. 2 to 5, inclusive, the case therein shown is designer, to hold three cards andt-o this end comprises two pockets '6 and. 7. The two pockets 6 and 7 are hingedly secured together at 8, the pocket 7 having both of its sides composed of transparent material,

such as celluloid, and thus being adapted to hold two cards in back-to-back relation so that their printed faces will be visible through the sides of the pocket, while the pocket 6 is adapted to hold only asingle card and has. only .one transparent side. The non-transparent side of the pocket 6 may be made of flexible leather or of other suitable material and is extended beyond the open mouth or" the pocket, as shown at 9 (Fig. i) and stitched to a flexible extension 10 of one side of the other pocket which extension projects beyond the mouth of said pocket. The two extensions 9 and 10, thus stitched together, constitute the hinge connection 8 hereinbefore referred to.

To enable the device comprising the two card pockets 6 and 7 to be detachahly secured to a pocket book, such as the bill fold shown at 11 in Fig. 5, said device is provided with leaf or tab 12 which is ad apt ed to be removably inserted into one of the pockets or compartments of the pocket book.

he leaf 12 may be secured to the pocket extensions 9 and 10 by means of the line of stitching which secures said extensions together and said leaf is of such size and shape as to fit substantially without end play in the compartment of the pocket book. Preferably, as shown, the two shorter edges of the leaf 12 converge outwardly from the extensions 9 and 10, thus making said leaf of a shape adapted to be easily inserted in the pocket of the bill fold. The leaf 12 may be made of celluloid of the same grade as that employed for the transparent sides of the pockets 6 and 7, or it may be made of any other suitable material, the celluloid however has been found to be desirable since it is of sufiicient stiffness to be inserted into the pocket of the bill fold without tendency to buckle. If this leaf 12 is made of celluloid, it is adapted to be inserted within a transparent pocket constituting an integral part of the bill fold without obscuring from view any card or other article which may be contained in said pocket. Both the leaf 12 and the two transparent sides of the pocket 7 may advantageously be bound with narrow strips of leather as shown at 14. Various grades and styles of leather may be employed in the manufacture of the card holding attachment to correspond with the leather of the pocket book to which it is intended to be attached so that when attached it will not detract in any way from the appearance of the pocket book but will look like an integral part thereof. The leaf 12 is thin and thetwo pockets 6 and 7 normally lie closely adjacent one another so that they will not greatly increase the thickness of a pocket book when attached thereto. No injury to the pocket book will result from the attachment thereto of the card case constituting the present invention since there are no fastening devices to be clamped or permanently secured to the latter. Obviously the card case may be readily detached from the pocket book whenever desired.

It will be noted that the pockets are secured together and to the tab in such a manner that the pockets have their open sides adjacent the hinge. This prevents cards or the like from falling from the pockets as they would if the pockets were opened at the side opposite from the hinge.

The detachable card case may be variously modified in its construction and in its arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of the invention. For example, the case may be made with a single pocket only and said pocket may have only one transparent side for the display of a single card, a case of this sort being shown in Fig. 1 wherein the transparent side of the single po'lret is designated 15 while it) indicates the leaf or tab for reinovably attaching said pocket to a pocket book. In this form of the invention three of the marginal portions of the non-transparent side of the pocketmay be folded over and stitched to the transparent side 15 as indicated at 17, while a separate strip 18 may be used to bind the fourth edge of said side, thus providing a pocket of pleasing as well as durable construct-ion. An extension 19 of the non-transparent wall of the pocket shown in Fig. 1 is stitched or may be otherwise suitably secured to the leaf or tab 16. If desired, a case of the general type shown in Fig. 1 may have two transparent sides for the display of two cards. By constructing the case with two pockets each having two trans arent sides, a single case may be adapted to hold and display four cards. Thus a person may be supplied with card cases having provision for holding one or a plurality of cards as may be desired or he may obtain any number of cases of similar or different characteristics and selectively use these cases to adapt an ordinary pocket book to carry a certain number of cards at one time and a different number at. another time as may be desired. It is to be understood therefore that the scope of the invention is to be defined by the appended claims rather than by the foregoing description.

The invention having been explained that which is new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is 1. The combination with a pocket book or the like of an attachment therefor comprising a. plurality of pockets each having at least one transparentside and one side of each pocket being extended beyond the mouth thereof, a. tab for detachably securing said pockets to the pocket book, and means for securing together said extensions and for securing the latter to one edge portion of said tab.

2. An article of manufacture con'iprising a separately formed envelope having transparent walls, and means for hingedly and frictionally securing said envelope inside of a pocket book so that itis concealed when the book is closed.

3. in article of manufacture comprising an envelope having a transparent wall, and

substantially the same size' as the envelope hingedly secured to one edge thereof, and

adapted to be inserted in apocket of a pocket book, so as to be frictionally held therein.

4. The combination With a pocket book having a pocket, of a separately formed envelope, one Wall of which is transparent, and a supporting sheet to which saidenvelope is hingedly connected along one edge, said sheet being constructed to enter said pocket and thus detachably secure said envelope to the pocket book.

5, An article of manufacture comprising, an envelope having a transparent side open along one edge and a piece of relatively stifi material hingedly secured thereto adapted for insertion in a pocket of a pocket book.

6. An article of manufacture comprising, an envelope having at least one transparent side and an opening along one edge, a piece of relatively stifi material hingedly secured to said envelope adjacent said open edge that is adapted for insert-ion in a pocket of a pocket book.

In testimony whereof I have affixed my signature.

GUY O. TANTLINGER.
