L. V. CURRY. Case for Displaying Shot.

No. 231,478. Patented Aug. 24,1880.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

LEWIS V. CURRY, OF FENTON, MICHIGAN.

CASE FOR DISPLAYING SHOT.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 231,478, dated August 24, 1880.

Application filed January 28, 1880 10 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, LEWIS V. CURRY, of Fenton, in the county of Genesee and State of Michigan, have invented an Improvement in Cases for Displaying Shot, of which the following is a Specification.

The nature of my invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in the construction of cases from which to retail various sizes of shot.

Ordinarily shot are kept in rectangular open boxes, made by subdividing a large box into smaller ones or compartments, each designed to hold a particular size of shot, which, by careless handling, frequently become mixed with other sizes in the adjacent compartments.

The invention consists in the peculiar construction and operation of my improved shotcase, as more fully hereinafter described.

Figure l is a perspective view of my case from the rear. Fig. 2 is a like view of the interior detached from the shell and looking from below. Fig. 3 is a perspective of the detached shell, showing its interior.

In the accompanyingdrawings, which form a part of this specification, A represents a shell, preferably made of sheet metal bent into a circular form and secured in any suitable manner to a strong and stiff bottom, B, in the center of which is secured the verticall yprojecting stud U. D is the bottom, and E the top, of a frame provided with a hollow hub, F, from which radiate the partitions G, by means of which the space between the top and bottom is divided into wedge-shaped chambers of uniform size, the top E, in addition, acting as a frame to hold a glass top which covers all the compartments. Each one of these compartments is provided with a wedgeshaped drawer, H, which is designed to accurately fit the compartment, and each drawer is provided with a suitable swinging handle, a. As such a case is designed to hold a weight of several hundred pounds, caster-Wheels or friction-rolls-I are secured at equal distances apart to the bottom D,which are designed to rotate upon the bottom B of the shell,the stud G entering the hollow hub F, which acts as a pivot-point. The shell A is cut away, as at b, so that when one of the compartments containing a drawer is brought into coincidence with such opening that particular drawer may be withdrawn and its contents or a portion thereof may be weighed out. A small table, K, or platform, with its top coincident with the bottom of the cut-away portion 1) of the shell A, and which may be rigidly or detachably secured thereto, enables the operator to withdraw any one of the drawers with ease.

To the top of the center F is secured, preferably detachably, an annular plate, L, upon which the number or size of the shot in the various compartments is indicated.

While this device is especially adapted as a shot-case, it will be seen that it is equally valuable as a case from which to retail candies, teas, and otherlike goods, where itis desirable to exhibit the goods without danger from the pilt'ering fingers and habits of a certain class of customers.

\Vhat I claim as my invention is- 1. A rotating show case provided with wedge-shaped compartments and drawers, and rotating within a shell provided with an openin g,- through which but one of the drawers can be withdrawn at the same time, substantially as described.

2. A show-case wherein the shell A, provided with the opening b and the table K, incloses a rotating show-case composed of the bottom D, top E, hollow hub F, partitions G, drawers H, and wheels I, the parts being constructed and operating substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

H. S. SPRAGUE, A. BARTHEL.
