Nov. 12, 1946. M. L. ORNSTEEN MONEY HOLDER .INVENTOR. M/AMM LAM/ L Gin $75571;
Filed Sept. 9, 1944 a try Patented Nov. 12, 1946 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE MONEY HOLDER Miriam Lampl Ornsteen, New Rochelle, N. Y. Application September 9, 1944, Serial No. 553,413
6 Claims.
This invention relates to a money holder and it is one object of the invention to provide a device of this character which may be used for holding paper money and also for carrying coins, or identification lates bearing a persons name, address, or other identifying indicia.
Another object of the invention is to provide a money holder including a fiat body formed of sheet metal or other suitable material, there being a jaw at one side of the body for gripping paper money and jaws at the opposite side of the body for holding coins or an identification plate.
Another object of th invention is to provide the body with a diametrically extending strip constituting a carrier for a stationary jaw and a movable jaw, the movable jaw being held in place by a fastener having a flat head disposed flat against the strip under a jaw for holding paper money and carrying a threaded stem which passes through a longitudinal slot in the strip and is screwed into a threaded opening formed in the movable jaw so that the movable jaw may be tightly bound against the strip and held in an adjusted position.
Another object of the invention is to so form the movable jaw that it has fingers which engage opposite side edges of the strip and guide movement of the movable jaw along the strip.
Another object of the invention is to provide a money holder of such formation that it may be entirely formed of sheet metal with the exception of the fastener for the movable jaw and thus cheaply manufactured and sold at a reasonable price.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing wherein:
Figure 1 is a view looking at the front of the mony holder.
Figure 2 is a view looking at the back thereof.
Figure 3 is a side view of the money holder.
Figure 4 is a sectional view upon an enlarged scale taken along the line 4-4 of Figure 2.
Figure 5 is a sectional view taken along line 55 of Figure 2.
Figure 6 is a perspective view of the body portion of the holder.
Figure 7 is a perspective view of the fastener for the movable jaw.
Figure 8 is a perspectiv view of the movable jaw.
This improved money holder has a body I formed of resilient sheet metal or other suitable material. While the body has been shown of substantially octagon outline, it will be understood that it may be of any desired shape. The body has portions cut therefrom to form. a strip 2 which extends diametrically of the body with its ends integrally united to peripheral portions thereof. There has also been provided a tongue extending from the body in alignment with one end of the strip 2 and bent back to form a resilient jaw 3 having a curved spring portion 4 connecting one end with the body. This jaw has its free end portion bent to form a lip 5 extending at an incline from the lower end of the body so that aper mony may be folded and then easily slipped into place between the resilient jaw and the front face of. the body. The strip 2 is formed intermediate its length with a longitudinal slot 6 having an enlarged upper end portion. 1 and above this slot, the strip is cut to form a tongue having its upper free end portion curled back upon itself so that this tongue forms a stationary jaw 8 having an overhanging bill 9, the stationary jaw being disposed at the opposite side of the strip 2 from theresilient jaw 3.
The jaw 8 cooperates with a movabl jaw Ill which is also formed of sheet material and has a shank I I and a cross head I2 at one end thereof. This movable jaw is disposed flat against the strip 2 with the shank extending longitudinally thereof and the cross head I2 projecting from opposite side edges of the strip. Tongues extend downwardly from opposite ends of the cross head and these tongues are bent to form bills !3 which, together with the bill 9 of the stationary jaw, overlap marginal portions of a coin or identification plate and firmly hold the coin or plate when the movable jaw is shifted along the strip 2 to a gripping position. The cross head I2 is also provided with small tongues at opposite sides of the shank and these tongues are bent to form fingers I4 which engage opposite side edges of the strip 2 and guide movement of th movable jaw along the strip as well as retaining the shank in position in which it extends longitudinally of the strip, as shown in Figure 2. v
The movable jaw is to be held in adjusted positions after being shifted along the strip and in order to do so there has been provided a fastener illustrated in Figure '7. This fastener has a large head I5 in the form of a circular disc, the edge face of which is milled so that it may be readily grasped and turned. A threaded stem IB pro- Jects from the center of the disc or head I5 and this stem is of such length that when the disc is disposed flat against the front face of the strip 2, the stem will pass through the slot 6 or project therefrom a sufl'icient distance for engagement in a threaded opening I1 formed through the shank. In Figure 8, a single opening H has been shown located near the upper end of the shank, but it is to be understood that additional openings may be formed through the shank in spaced relation to each other longitudinally thereof so that by engaging the stem in a selected one of the openings, the movable jaw may be accommodated to coins or identification plates of different sizes. Since the disc or head I is quite large, it will project from opposite sides of the strip 2 and when a coin or identification plate is set in place between bill of the companion movable jaw and stationary jaw, the projecting portions of the head l5 may be grasped and the fastener turned to draw the shank of the movable jaw into tight binding engagement with the confronting 'face of the strip 2. The fact that the head is large and projects from opposite side edges of the strip 2 also permits paper money to be more securely held by the resilient jaw 3, since the outer face of said head provides a large surface against which the folded bills are pressed to the jaw.
From the foregoing description of the constructicn of my improved device, the method of assembly and the operation thereof will be readily understood and it will be seen that I have provided a comparatively simple, inexpensive and efficient means for carrying out the various objects of the invention.
While I have particularly described the elements best adapted to perform the functions set forth, it is apparent that various changes in form, proportion and in the minor details of construction may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the principles of the invention.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is:
.A money holder comprising a, body of sheet material, a jaw cooperating with said body for gripping paper money and holding the same between the jaw and the body, and coin-engaging jaw-s carried by'said body at the opposite side thereof from the jaw for gripping paper money, one coin-engaging jaw being stationary and the other being slidable towards and away from the stationary jaw, the movable jaw being formed with a threaded opening and said body with a s l qt extending longitudinally of the jaws, and a fastener for the movable jaw including a disc disposed between the body and the paper money engagingjawwith edge portions exposed at opposite side edges thereof and a threaded stem extending from the disc and passing through said slot and engaged through the threaded opening to slidably mount the movable jaw when the fastener is loosened and hold the movable jaw stationary by frictional binding contact with the body when the disc is turned in a direction to tighten the fastener.
2.
