SALES TICKET CARTRIDGE Filed June 28, 1949 INVENTOR.

JOHN c CONDON MW A TTORNE Y Patented Aug. 18, 1953 UNITED STATES: AT OF SALES TICKET CARTRIDGE John G. 'lCUndDXl, Oak .Park, 1 111., :assignor of one- Lhal'f to Whitney K. Munson, Red Bank, NJ.

Application June 5218, 1949, Serial 'No. 101,875

This invention relates to what may be termed a sales ticket cartridge, wherein a plurality "of sales tickets adapted for use "in connection with sales ticket writers and the like can "be inserted as a unit in the writer and -dispensed one at a time. More particularly, the invention deals with "a cartridge or unit pack of the character described, wherein all of the tickets are supported and maintained in assembled relationship and with "end portions of the tickets disposed at an angle with means retaining the tickets in the holder casing to facilitate individual displacement "of the tickets in the use of the writer. The novel features of the invention will be =best understood, when taken together with the accompanying drawing, in which certain embodiments of the invention "are disclosed and, in which, the separate parts are designated by suitable reference characters in each of the views and, which:

Fig. 1 is a diagrammatic sectional 'view through a ticket writer casing showing a side elevation :of.

Fig. 4 is an enlarged sectional view on the line 44 of Fig. 3-; :and

Fig. 5 is a plan view of the blank from which theholder of the cartridge is formed, showing a modification.

In Fig. 1 of the drawinglhavediagrammatically shown at It the outline of a casing .of a portable locked copy ticket writer such .as disclosed in my prior application Serial Number 55,737; .filed October 21, 1948, now Patent .No. 2,623,761, granted December 30., .1952.

This writer has, at one end, a sales ticket discharge opening II, through which tickets, as at I2, are adapted to be discharged, the opening I I being controlled by a door I3. At I4 is diagrammatically seen the means for feeding uppermost tickets for discharge through the opening I I. At It I have shown one of my improved cartridges or ticket packs, which is arranged upon the bottom wall I6 of the casing and the inner end of the pack abutting a stop wall I1.

In Fig. 2 of the drawing, I have shown at I8 the side walls of the casing ID.

The cartridge or pack I5 contains any desired number of the tickets I2. Each ticket may comprise two or more sheets secured together in any desired manner. At this time, it will be understood that, in dil ferent uses 'of the device, the sales ticket may have a single copy sheet attached to the lower surface thereof or a series "of these sheets may be combined in forming what will "be termed a sales ticket. From this standpoint, the use of the expression sales ticket "or ticket will be understood to include the complete unit of such ticket.

To produce the cartridge *or pack and to hold the tickets [-2 in a predetermined assembled relationship, I employ amounting or holder it, which is shown in blank'in Fig. 5 of the drawing. The holder has a long central body portion which is generally of the size of a ticket and on which the lowermost ticket in the pack or cartridge is disposed.

-Fo'ldable with respect to the sides of the body 29, adjacent one end which will be termed the inner end are similar sidewalls 2i and ioldable with "respect to the walls 21 are flaps 2-2 which form top wall members. The width of both flaps 2-2 combined will be equal to the width of the body "20. Inother words, the edges 2-3 -of the top walls abut in the resulting pack or cartridge, as seen-at 24 inFig. 3 0i the'drawing.

The edges25 of the walls 22 are oifset with respect to the edge "25 of the body "20 by bevelled walls'Z'l, thus disposing the-edges 28 0f the tickets in the angular position defined by the bevelled walls 21.

The side walls 21 are each die-cut to form laterally extending guide flanges and also to form finger openings 3i! on the walls '2 I -centrally of the flanges to facilitate insertion of a fingernail to extend the flanges '29 laterally when the cartridge 'or pack is inserted into the casing It. In other words, the flanges '29 normally lie in the planeo'f the Walls 2'I inthe packaging of the pack for shipment and transportation.

in the shipment and transportation, "the tickets are held in position on the holder I9 by a securing strip or band 3|, note Fig. 3 of the drawing. This band has a portion 32 secured to the wall parts 22 and serves to hold said parts in assembled relationship to each other and the other end portion 33 of the band is secured to the undersurface of the body 28', the band passing around the tickets including the edge portion 34 thereof as clearly illustrated inFig. 3.

Adjacent the walls 22, the band 3| has a transverse line of perforations 35 to facilitate tearing-off of the band at this point as and when the cartridge or pack is inserted into the casing 3 ID. The other end portion of the band 3| will be torn-off adjacent the forward end of the bottom wall or body 20.

Secured to the inner ends 28 of the tickets [2 are two adhesive tapes 36 which are also secured to the walls 22 and the body 20, as clearly illustrated in Fig. 3. These tapes can be of any desired construction but preferably have a nondryin-g adhesive which will establish, at the upper corner edges of the tickets l2 at the ends 28, a positive adhesive coupling having a minimum holding engagement, that is to say, the engagement will be sufiicient to prevent displacement of more than the uppermost ticket in the cartridge but not suflicient to prevent feed of the uppermost ticket through the opening I I by the feeding means, as at M, Fig. 1. In other words, in this operation, sufiicient adhesion is established by the next adjacent ticket to keep this ticket in position while the pull is exerted on the uppermost ticket to disengage the same from the tapes 36.

It will be understood that, when the cartridge is inserted into the casing, the flanges 29 are extended laterally, as clearly seen in Fig. 2 of the drawing, and these flanges serve to centralize the cartridge in the casing by engagement with or being in close proximity to the side walls 18. This provides clearance spaces inwardly of and adjacent the walls 18 for any suitable mechanism that may be employed in the ticket writer.

By adhesively engaging the upper corner edges only of the tickets, substantially no objectionable gummed edge will be provided on the detached ticket. In any event, this edge will be at the lower end of the resulting sales ticket. The upper end of the tickets have the perforations, as at 31, Fig. 3, for alinement on the top of the casing 10 in the use of the writer as taught in the application heretofore identified.

In Fig. 5 of the drawing, a modified form of alining means has been shown in the form of foldable tabs 38, 38 in the body 20 which, when in the folded position indicated in dotted lines, form alining protrusions or flanges generally corresponding with the flanges 29, as shown in Figs. 1-3 of the drawing. In addition, I have provided adjacent the free end of the body 20 angularly disposed foldable tabs 39, 39', the free ends of said tabs having a pointed contour, as seen at 40, 40 so that, when the tabs 39, 39 are disposed in the folded position, as shown'in dotted lines, the ends 40 protrude beyond both the side edges and the end of the body 20 for engaging the corresponding sides and end of the casing l0. With this construction, both ends of the cartridge or pack l5 are positively positioned or supported against transverse movement in the casing, as well as being supported against inadvertent forward movement of the cartridge or pack in withdrawing tickets therefrom.

It will be understood that each cartridge or pack will have a number or series of numbers identifying the sales tickets of the pack. A number of these packs will be mounted in boxes or cartons and the packs of a carton will be consecutively numbered in facilitating the use thereof.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A ticket cartridge of the character described comprising a mounting, a plurality of tickets adapted to be held in said mounting, said mounting comprising a bottom wall substantially common to the size of the tickets, one end portion'only of the mounting having side and top wall portions which, in combination with the bottom wall, envelope one end portion of the tickets, means holding said walls in assembled relationship on said plurality of tickets, said means including means for normally holding tickets against displacement from one end of the cartridge, means attached to top and bottom walls of the mounting and to part only of end edges of the tickets arranged therein for holding said ticket against accidental displacement when said other ticket holding means is removed, and said last named means comprising a narrow gummed tape engaging corners only of edge portions of all of said tickets.

2. A ticket cartridge for ticket writers of the class described, said cartridge comprising a unit pack consisting of a plurality of tickets, a mounting for supporting the tickets in assembled relationship to each other, rupturable means secured to said mounting and normally holding the tickets in the pack and facilitating when ruptured displacement of the tickets one at a time from the pack in the use of said cartridge, means including said mounting for disposing ends of the tickets in angular position in the resulting pack, said last named means adhesively engaging a short portion of edges of the tickets in retaining each ticket while facilitating displacement of the tickets one at a time while holding the remaining tickets against movement, and said mounting having means for alining the pack in the casing of a ticket writer.

JOHN C. CONDON.
