METALLIC INK ERASER Filed Jan. 15, 1936 Inventor I Sfap/es Patented 0st. 20, 1936 STATES emit rattan sm'rsme nan ERASEB Weltha Joanne Staples, hnrlington Function, hi0. Application January 15, 1936, Serial No. 59,283

2 Claims. (63.120-49) This invention relates broadly to fountain pens and analogous writing implements, and more particularly to an attachment therefor in the form of an ink scraper or eraser.

In accordance with the present invention an ink eraser formed of metal or other suitable analogous material is provided for attachment to a fountain pen and is so equipped as to cooperate with the usual clip with which fountain pens are generally equipped, in a manner to present rotation of the eraser attachment about the fountain pen as an axis whenthe attachment is in a position for and is being used in erasing any mark which the operator may wish to eradicate. g

The invention together with its objects and advantages will be best understood from a study of the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, wherein:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of a fountain pen having the attachment applied thereto.

Figure 2 is an elevational view taken at right angles to Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a view similar to Figure 2 but showing the eraser in a position for use on the fountain pen.

Figure 4 is a blankfroin formed, and

Figure 5 is a sectional view taken substantially on the line 5-5 of Figure 2.

which the eraser is Referring to the drawing by reference numerals I it will be seen that the eraser indicated generally by the reference numeral 5, in the preferred embodiment thereof is cut from a single blank of suitable material, preferably metal, cut, shaped and dimensioned to provide a relatively narrow plate 6 having one end offset thereto to provide a scraper or blade 1 equipped at its terminal edge with a knife edge as clearly suggested in the drawin Adi acent the end thereof remote from the blade part I plate t-is provided with a pair of oppositely extending lateral projections or spring fingers t and adapted to engage the cap 9 of a fountain pen i in a manner clearly shown in the drawing for retaining the device on the cap for sliding movement along the cap 9, g

As clearly shown in the drawing when the hugers t are bent into embracing position about the cap t the space between the terminals of the fingers t is suflicient to accommodate the anchored end of the usual clip I I with which the fountain pen cap 3 is equipped in a conventional manner,

Normally the device 5 is positioned on the cap as shown in Figures 1 and 2. When, however. it s is desired to use the blade I for eradicating a mark the device 5 is slid from the position shown in Figures 1 and 2 to the position shown in Figure 3 and when in this position it will be seen that the blade 1 projects beyond the end of the cap it t to be used for scraping or erasing any mark the operator may wish to eradicate. when in this position the anchored end of the clip i l isaccommodated'between the meeting ends of the spring fingers t and thus acts as a stop against 16 which the free ends of the-fingers abut to effectively prevent a rotation of the scraper about the cap 9 as an axis. Thus the member 8 will be positively and eflectively held in position for use during actual use of the scraper or eraser.

Having thus described the invention what is claimed as new is:

i. The combination with a fountain pen cap having a retaining clip anchored at one end thereto, of an eraser consisting of a plateformed at one end to provide a scraping element, and provided at the end remote from the scraping element with retaining fingers extending laterally from opposite edges thereof and curved to fit about and embrace the cap with the free com 30 fronting ends of the fingers spaced apart a distance sumcient to receive therebetween the fixed end of said clip for engagement with said end of the clip to prevent rotation of the eraser about the cap as an axis. a 35 2. An attachment for pens comprising a cap having a pocket engaging clasp secured at one end to the cap at one side of the cap and a scraper blade disposed at the side of the cap diametrically opposite to the engaging clasp, and provided with oppositedly extending curved spring fingers em= bracing the cap for slidably retaining the scraper element thereon, said fingers having free ends terminating in spaced relation to accommodate therebetween the fixed ends of the pocket engaging clasp and adapted to be arranged to engage said end of the clasp when an end of the eraser member is projected beyond one end of said cap. and for the purpose specified.
