CIGARETTE PACKAGE Filed Aug. 20, 1951 ATTORNEY tion of the wrapper.

Patented June 27, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT orm ca AUGUST JACOB SCHMIDT, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO AMERICAN MACHINE & FOUNDRY COMPANY, A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY CIGARETTE PACKAGE Application filed August 20, 1981. Serial No. 558,367.

This invention relates to packages, and more particularly to a package having a wrapper weakened by slits or perforations or both, on one end of the packa e, and a sealing strip adherin to the s1 of the package and the weakened portion of the wrapper and provided with a tab which may be grasped to tear away the weakened por- The main object of the invention is to obtain a wrapper-which may be readily opened to removethe contents of the package without destroylng the wrapper. With this and other ob ects not specifically mentioned in view, the invention consists in certain constructions and combinations hereinafter fully described and then specifically set forth in the claims hereunto appended.

In the accompanying drawlng which forms a part of this specification and 1n which like characters of reference indicate the same or like parts,

Fig. 1 is a partial perspectlve view of a package having a'wrapper which is weakened adjacent one side of the top of the package, and a sealing strip adhering thereto, the forward end of which is adapted to be gripped for tearing open the wrapper at its weakened portion; Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the wrapper being torn open; and

Figs. 3 to 12 represent partlal top news of the package showing various ways of weak.- ening the wrapper.

In carrying the invention into effect, there is provided a wrapped package having its wrapper weakened adjacent one side of one end of the package, and a sealing strip adhering to the adjacent side of the package and to the weakened portion of the wrapper and provided with a tab which may be grasped to tear away the weakened portion of the wrapper. In the best constructions contemplated, the wrapper may be weakened by a pair of slits, or a shtand a line of perforations, or a single slit or a single line of perforations. The various means and parts may be widely varied within the scopeof the claims, for the particular forms of wrappers selected to illustrate the invention are but some of many possible concrete emageP, which is preferably a cigarette package, hasa wrapper C of cellophane or other similar material with side .folds "C" overlapping on the sides of the package. The portion of the wrapper over the top end of the package is weakened by lines of perforations A and B. A sealing strip S is secured to the wrapper C over one side of the package and the top of the package over the perforated lines A and B. The forward end of the strip S is preferably folded'over-on itself to form a tab F which may be grasped to tear loose the portion C of the wrapper between the lines A and B, as shown in Fig. 2. A suitable adhesive such as described in the reissue patent to F. W. Farrell, No. 17,760, granted Aug. 5, 1930, may be used to secure the strip S to the wrapper. This adhesive has the property of remaining tacky indefinitely so that after the piece C is torn away and the contents of the package partially removed, the strip S will readily ad here to the wrapper when it is again pressed down on the top of the package to seal the wrapper. 1

In Fig. 3 the wrapper is weakened by continuous slits A and B. Fig. 4 shows the wrapper weakened by a line of perforations A and a continuous slit B. The manner of weakening the wrapper in Fig. 5 is the form used in Figs. 1 and 2, and comprises two lines ofperforations 'A andB. Fig. 6 shows a wrapper weakened'by continuous slits A and B, the slit A being curved and having its ends adjacent the slit B. In Figs. 7 and 8 the line of perforations A is-also curved and extends to the slit B in Fig. 7 and the line of perforations B .in Fig. 8. Since the manner in which the wrapper is weakened in Figs. 1 to 8 causes it to tearopen only between the lines A and B, any

further pulling on the sealing strip S will pull it free from'the wrapper. But since it per to seal it the strip S will not ordinarily be removed from the wrapper.

The slits or perforations B may be omitted as in Figs. 9 to 12 so that the piece 0 will tear as far as the side folds C" of the wrapper or the corner of the package by pulling on the sealing strip S. In Figs. 9 and 11 the wrapper is shown as weakened by a slit A, the slit being curved in Fig. 11. A line of perforations A is used to weaken the wrapper in Figs. 10 and 12, and the line of perforations is curved in Fig. 12.

It will be noted that the end of the slits or line of perforations in Figs. 3 to 5, 9, and 10 extend inwardly toward the adjacent side of the package to cause the wrapper to tear in that direction. The same result is obtained by the curved slit or line of perforations in Figs. 6 to 8, 11, and 12.

In any of the various forms of constructions shown, the contents of the packages are rendered readily removable through the wrapper by merely pulling on the sealing strip S. I With a cigarette packagethe cigarettes may be easily removed through the opening in the wrapper formed by tearing loose the piece C without tearing open the entire top of the wrapper. The constructions shown in Figs. 1 to 8 are designed to close up the opening so formed in the wrapper by pressing down the sealingstrip on the top of the package, thereby sealing the wrapper. With the manner of weakening the wrapper shown in Figs. 9 to 12, the piece C may be torn off along the side folds C" when the sealing strip S is pulled, yet the piece C may be torn only as far as the corner of the package so that the strip S may be pressed down again on the top of the wrapper to seal it. By the practice of my invention it is apparent-that the contents of the package may be kept air-tight and moisture proof although the wrapper is opened from time to time to remove a portion of the con-.

tents of the package.
