f This'l invention relates to .acoin box, has'for-its-A object the provisionp-of a. boxi that willminimizc lossesin the operation of slot machines or other coinoperatedmachines.

Theparticular object of the invention is to provide a box that can be quicklyinserted into coin-receiving position in a machine,

and which upon withdrawal, will be auto matically locked -so as to prevent removalof coins byf thc servicing attendant. The "attendant merely collects :the filledfboxes, replacing them with empty boxes, and carries the filled boxes to' the central office 'where 7 they are opened and emptiedby theproper.

- lVhile I: have` disclosed a preferred ern- -bodimentvofthe invention for vpurposes of illustration, it should be understood that the structure may be modifiedin various. ways withoutdeparturefrom the true lspirit` and scope of the invention as hereinafter defined and claimed. y

In the drawings,

Fig. l is a plan view, partly broken away, Showing the coin box in receiving position in the machine;

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section through the structure shown in Fig. 1;

Y Fig. 3 is a fragmentary View similar to Fig. 1 but showing the coin box partly removedfrom its compartment;

Fig. 4 is a partial section showing the locking mechanism, the coin box being in receiving position in its compartment;

Fig. 5 is a view similar toFig. 4 showing the box partly removed from its compartment;

Fig. 6 is a side elevation of part of the box in opened position;

Fig. 7 is a plan view ofthe vparts shown in Fig. 6. Y

The coin box 10 is normally housed in a compartment l1 formed in the slot machine or other device on which the box is to be used. The compartment is provided with a hinged door 12 secured by a suitable lock 13. The upper wall of the coin box has two apertures 14 formed therein in cooperativev the coin box byV suitably formed shoulders.

17. The slide is formed with apertures 18 upward extension fitting :into 'notch 27 "and y, into a slot 32 inthe lockingplate;

adapted at aV certain position: ofthe slid'eto coincide with apertures -14.-

One' end.4 of slide: 16.; pivotally carries 1. an'v arml 19 connected' with Vthe `lever, 20- which is carried in a controlbox 21. 'The control box closelyslides into one lend ofthe cash box and carriesa pivot pin 22 which,V rides in ,a'slot22a of thelever. The lower v i end of lever 20 ishingcd rtothe'lo'ckimg plate.,65 f

23, whichslides vwithin the control box 2.1l and has a horizontal. slot'24 formed therein.. The slot 24 has lateral extensions 25 adapted y' to. receive the spring-pressed tumblers y26 carriediin the control box. The' forward end of lockingplater 23 is formed withv downwardly opening notch 2.7. Afkey lever y 28 is pivoted in the control fbox and has an has a lower'extension 2Qadapted1to fit into.l a notch 30 formedfin` the key. The' locking" plate is guided yin'vits movement by apinl 31; carried by the .control box.. `and extending A latch member 33, which=ispivoted tof the control box carriesl abeveled foot 34` K adapted to engage behind a stop 35 formed on the inside ofthe coinv box as shown iny Fig. 1. A spring 36presses the latch mem-l ber into engagement with the stop. The forward end of the latch member 33 extends beyond the front wall'of the control box and ends in a hook 37 1 A bracket 38 carrying a keymember39 and A a stop l40 is permanently mounted on the 90 `rear wall of compartment 11. The forward part of key 39 `isso formed` that when the `key extends-intothe keyway 41 of the con,-v

trol box' (Fig. 4) the tumblers 26 are held out .of the slot extensions 25 and in aline- 95 `ment with the horizontal slot 24. yAit the same time the arm 29 extends into notch 30 formed on the key. Leaf springs 42' are attached vto oneside of compartment 11 and resiliently lhold the box against the opposite ,loo side. The stop 40 insures "accurate positioningv of the coin box in the compartment.

When the coin box is in the position'illustrated in Figs. l, 2 and 4 it will catch any coins falling into chutes 15.l When the attendant comes around to serviceA themachine and remove the laccumulated coins, he -irst opens door 12, and then pulls the coin box from thel compartment. During the outward movement of the coin box, key im lever 28 is rocked by reason of arm 29 being engaged in' notch 30 of the key. This move- 'ment of'l lever 28 is transmitted to the lockf ing plate 23 `(the tumblers 26` being held in neutral 'position by thekey) and thence throughv lever 20 and arm 19 to slideY 16, moving the slide rearwardly tothe position shown in Figs. 3 and 5.v VWhen the slide is in this position it partlycloses the apertures 14and prevents removal of the coins through l these apertures. In this position the tumrblers 26 engage inthe slot extensions 25 and prevent movementfof the slide. At the Sametime anV extension 43 of the slide engages behind latchv 33 and holds it in en` gagement with stop 35 `(Fig. 3) preventing removal of the controlY box from the coin box. l Y i The attendant` now inserts an empty coin boxA of identical construction with the one just `removed into the com artment 11. This Y lected coin boxes to the central office.

When the latter is pulled to the right it carries with it the control box 21 and slide V16, "opening the front end of the coin box (Fig.
