This invention relates to a new and iniproved system of loose le ters, figures and characters, in coinhinaticn With a base or surface to be used as a background for the saine, for the purpose of making in a rapid, artistic, economical and easily variable inanner, signs and any kind of inscriptions for the exhibition of merchandise, or for other similar uses.

It consists substantially of a convenient collection of characters, letters, figures and the like, drawn on and cut out from any appropriate material such as cardboard, inetal, etc., (which although not used for printing; purposes, for the sake of brevity in this description 1will he called typesm in conibination with a plane surface to forni a background and support for the saine, the types being provided on their back sides with convenient spikes for fastening,` thein to the background, 4which inay also he provided with convenient holes for receiving said spikes.

in the accompanying drawings illustrative of a convenient embodiment of the invention Fig. l shows a sign card composed of four types, of which the Asecond large one and the second sinall one have been removed in order to show the holes in the background;

The types c are provided on their backs With one or more spikes d of such diameter 703,807, and in Argentina April 18, 1923.

as to fit tightly into the perforations I) so that they have to be forced into the latter by a slight pressure in order that they inay be held firmly therein. Generally speaking, the smaller sizes Will have a single spike, and the larger one two or incre as inay be necessary. They may be of cylindrical or square section, tapering or not, a very convenient forni being thatl shown in Fig. 4t of the drawings, in which the spikes are shown in the form of headed studs, thus permitting thein to be easily introduced but lirrnly held in place When driven ho1ne. For the saine purpose the holes in the background sheet may loe inade tapering.

The lines of holes, instead of being straight inay also be curved or fanciful in order to produce artistic effects in the sign or inscription.

The inaterial for the types as Well as for the background sheets may be nietal, cardboard, Celluloid or any adequate material. The background sheet may also be inade of rubber, cork or like elastic material, in which case the type spikes niay be sharpv pointed and no holes vvill be necessary, as the spikes will enter easily and the holes close and be-V come invisible after the spikes are retiredV therefrom.
