DEVICE FOR DELIVERING CARbS ESPECIALLY RAILWAY TICKETS Filed Feb. 29, 1948 INVENTOR. h alil" Bollmann ifarneys.

.come this and other drawbacks.

Patented Oct. 20, 1953 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE DEVICE FOR DELIVERING CARDS, ESPECIALLY RAILWAY TICKETS Walter Bollmann, Zurich, Switzerland Application February 29, 1948, Serial No. 12,198

In Switzerland August 6, 1947 2 Claims. (01. 312-61) The present invention relates to an improved device for delivering cards, especially railway tickets.

There exist arrangements of the type having commonly known magazines for taking a bulky supply, disposed in parallelism in a cabinet and from which the cards or tickets can individually be withdrawn, the cards being under the infiuence of springs tending to urge them towards the delivery opening of the magazines located at right angles to the discharge opening of the cab inet with the cards stored parallel thereto. The upper edges of the cards are stored closely one after another lying at the same level in the magazine, whereby grasping of the outermost card is rather difficult.

The object of the present invention is to over- According to the invention the improved arrangement of the cards is obtained in that the magazines are disposed at an angle relative to the plane of the discharge opening or the cabinet, and that the cards and the delivery opening of the magazines are located parallel to the discharge Opening of the cabinet so that each card has one of its edges in staggered relation to the corresponding edge of the following card to enable the easy removal of the cards. In other words, all consecutive cards have their edges in stepped arrangement so that the outermost card can each time be easily taken hold of by its exposed edge.

The depth of the cabinets accommodating the magazines is determined by the capacity of the latter, and the magazines being obliouely positioned in the cabinet according to the invention permit. at equal capacity, a reduction of the depth of the magazine.

The accompanying drawing illustrates by way of exam le a preferred embodiment of the invention, in which:

Fig. 1 shows a lateral view of a single magazine for takin a bulky sup ly of cards or tickets:

Fig. 2 represents a top view of the magazine as per Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is an end view of the magazine;

Fig. 4 shows a detail of the magazine: and

Fig. 5 is a lateral view of the detail shown in Fi 4.

Referring more particularly to Figs. 1-3, the magazine denoted by numeral I is preferably moulded from artificial resin, with plain surface and of channeled cross-section, i. e. one side completely open. White coloured artificial resin is best adapted for the purpose. In its position of use as in Fig. 1, the magazine is provided 2 in the front with a delivery opening for the cards 2 stored closely therein one after another. The delivery opening and the cards lie thereby in vertical planes, whereas the magazine is inclined to the rear. Thus all upper edges of the cards 2 are progressively stepped.

Mounted in magazine I is a slide member 3 carrying at its top a cam 4 adapted to guide the slide in a way 5 provided in the upper wall of the magazine. The front of the slide 3 facing the cards 2 bears against the cards with its bottom end, whereas its upper end has an arcuate recess 6 to provide a clearance allowing insertion of a finger to push back the slide 3.

Detachably arranged between the back wall of magazine I and the slide 3 is a plate spring 7 bent in zigzag-line, tending to urge the slide 3 and consequently the cards 2 towards the delivery opening of the magazine I. The spring 1 is held by two pins mounted respectively on the slide and on the back wall of the magazine. The upper and the lower walls of the magazine have cross-ribs 8 and 9, respectively, closely fitted tothe front of its delivery opening and against which the upper and the lower marginal portions of the cards 2 come to rest.

To permit a card to be easily grasped by its upper edge the magazine I has its upper wall cut away at Ill.

The rib 8 defines an acute angle with the plane of the delivery opening of the magazine I. The upper edge of the foremost ticket is grasped with the finger tip in the cut-off portion and is tilted forwardly around its lower edge, and this is possible only because the rear face of the rib 8 is arranged substantially perpendicular to the plane of the delivery opening.

The slide member 3 carries a, hook I! provided with a recess l2 therein. When pushing back the slide its hook H enters a slot [3 in the back wall of the magazine. where it is retained by means of a lockin member M pivoted thereon and rockable into the recess l2.

Situated in a depression or well in the upper magazine wall and surrounded by a ridge I5 is a plate l6 (Figs. 4 and 5) adapted to engage the way 5 by means of an offset lug H.

A prolongation 18 of this plate is provided with a coloured head l9, preferably red, and it lies in a channel open at the front. The plate Hi cooperates with the cam 4 by means of the lug l1. When upon taking off cards the slide 3 has moved towards the delivery opening so far that the cam 4 strikes against the lug ll, then upon further removal of cards the plate I6 is carried along. If the head 19 becomes visible at the front of the magazine, this indicates that there is left but a certain minimum number of cards in the magazine which therefore needs to be refilled.

Screwed-down onto ridge is a plate (not shown) adapted to close from above the depression which contains the plate IE. When shifting the slide rearwardly the plate [6 'falls back by its own weight so that the signal head is disappears. However, this plate could be taken to its rearward position by a pull spring if desired.

What I claim is:

1. A magazine for holding a stack of tickets having a generally rectangular outline comprising a housing defined by two'spaced wallsra perpendicular wall joining said spaced walls along one of the longitudinal edges thereof, an 'end wall for said spaced and perpendicular walls and an open end constituting a delivery opening opposite said end wall, the front face of the outermost card of the stack lying at an angle to the longitudinal axis of the housing and within the housing, a spring-loaded .follower slide within said housing located between the stack of tickets and the end wall for urging the tickets toward the delivery opening, a transverse rib on one of the spaced walls forming an acute angle with respect to the plane of the delivery opening at the Open end of the housing, means on the other of the spaced walls cooperating with said transverse rib to retain the stack of tickets within the housing, the rear face of .the rib being substantially perpendicular .to the said plane, means on said rib and said spaced wall forming a cut-away portion to permit the manual grasping of the edge of each ticket, means on the slide defining a contact surface to engage the rearmost ticket only in that area adjacent the spaced wall having the means thereon cooperating with the transverse rib, and further means on the slide inthrough the hiatus between the two spaced walls,

means defining a guideway in one of the walls, a

projection on the slide extendin into the guideway to retain and guide the slide within the housing, an indicator slidably mounted on one of the spaced walls and means carried by the indicator for engagement by the projection to move the'indicator beyond the open end of the housing when less than a predetermined number of tickets remain in the housing.
