UNITED STATES Y GEORGE S. WEBBER, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

IDENTIFICATION TAG.

Application led February 23, 19278. Serial No. 256,423. I

This invention relates particularly to identiication-tags adapted to be attached to keyrings. 1

The primary object is to provide an im- 5 proved identification-tag equipped with a mailing-card. It is intended that the card shall bear the owners address and shall be stamped, ready for mailing.

The invention is illustrated ina preferred embodiment in the accompanying drawing,

in which- I Fig. 1 is a plan view of the improved vdevice; Fig. 2, av transverse section taken as indicated at line 2 'of Fig. 1; Fig. 3, av view showing the device opened; and Fig. 4, a longitudinal section taken as indicated at line v 4 of Fig. l. f

In the illustration given, A and A designate a pair of substantially flat housingplates; B, an intervening mailing-card, or identification-card; C, an eyelet, or tubular rivet, connecting the plates and intervening card pivotally near one edge, or end; and D, a key-ring (shown as a chain) which engages the eyelet and carries a key D.

The plates and card preferably are of the same size and outline, Preferably, they are oblongin shape and `have one end rounded and perforated to receive the tubular rivet. Cards of this shape are adapted to receive a postage stamp and may be no larger' than a stamp. f

The card is of substantial thickness and of suitable material, such as cardboard or paper of good quality. The ends of the tubular rivet are spun over or upset against the outer surfaces of the plates at their pivotal portions. The riveting is such as to produce pressure of the plates upon the intervening card and create considerable Afriction at the pivotal joint.

Preferably the plates are provided with out-struck central ribs l which extend parallel with the lateral edges of the plates.

Thus, the ribs are so disposed that when the plates are. grasped between thumb and lingers, the plates may be swung in their own planes in opposite directions to open the tag,

it being noted that the pivot is transverse, or

perpendicular to plates.

The plates may be formed from sheet `aluminum or other sheet-metal and may be plated, if desired.

Plates of this construction protect the cards enclosed within aga-inst `the hard usage to which rthe plates are exposed. y

Instructions may be stamped or impressed upon the metal plates, such as, for example, Fintler please inailstamp and address nsic e.

With the arrangement shown, it will be ob` served that it will not be necessary to stamp many words upon the plates because most of the necessary information can be placed upon the cards inside and, furthermore, this information may be changed from time to time.

The deviceissimple,cheapfand well adapted to its purpose. It may be attached to a hotel key, or to a set of keys carried in the pocket; lVhen occasion requires, the device may be opened'and will serve in this condition as a mailing-tag'. y

Minor changes may be made without departure from the invention; hence, no undue limitation should be understood from the detailed description given.

What I regard as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

An identification-tag comprising apair of plates and an intervening card, and a transverse tubular rivet pivotally and frictionally connecting the plates and card, said plates having outwardly struck ribs to facilitate opening the device.

i GEORGE S. WEBBER.
