ASSORTlNG-FILE FOR CHECKS, co..l
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 744,350, dated November 17, 1903.
Application filed February 5, 1903. Serial No- 142,046. (No model.)
T all whorn it may concern:
Be it known that I, WALTER S. JEwELL, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city of Philadelphia, county of Philadelphia',
State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in VAssorting- Files for Checks, dto., of which the following is a speciiication. f
My invention relates to'an improved device designed particularly to facilitate the assorting of bank-checks or deposit-slips, the main object being to provide for effecting such assortment or alphabetical grouping in the act of filing the checks or slips as received, l hereby saving most of the time ordinarily required at theend of each day to assort promiscuouslyfiled chec (s or slips.Y
The invention is fully described in connection with the accompanying drawings and the novel features thereof are pointed outl in the claims.
Figure 1 is a plan view of my improved assorting-le, the position of two groups of inserted checks being indicated by dotted lines. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section taken on the line of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a separate view of one of the leaves drawn to reduced scale, the dotted lines indicating the extended adjacent leaf.
The device comprises a series of leaves of uniform width but varying lengths piled upon each other with their similar ends set even, as indicated at 1, Fig. 2, and suitably bound together at said ends,l with a bottom cover or board 2 and a top cover 3 of reduced length, as hereinafter described, and with spacingstrips 4 to provide proper room between adjacent leaves for the inserted checks 5 5. The bottom cover 2 is preferably made of a continuous piece of stiff cardboard and the top cover 3 of less rigid material, though stiffer than the leaves, projected beyond the bound ends only a distance approximately equal to the width of the checks or slips intended to be filed in the device. The successive leaves between these covers are distinguished by the two index characters upon the lapping outer ends of each. Thus, the shortest leaf AM projects only slightly beyond the free edge of the adjacent top cover 3, the next lower one B Mc extends slightly beyond A M, and so on, the free end of each being thus readily seized to raise the same for inserting the slip. After insertion the latter is pushed back under the cover 3 in its proper compartment, with itsv outer end projecting, so as to permit of the whole bundle thus grouped bysuccessive insertions being grasped and removed together in proper alphabetical order at the end of the day.
It will be noticed that between each two leaves is formed a double compartment or receiving-space, as shown, the slips grouped under the index-letters Ato L projecting beyond the corresponding edge of the le and those grouped under index-letters h to r projecting beyond the opposite edge, while both groups lextend inward somewhat short of the center line of the device. After they have been separately withdrawn from the file the group A to L may be placed on top of the group M to Z and'allwill be inproper order. To enable the slips to be Ymore conveniently inserted in their proper compartments on either side of the file, the intermediate portion of each leaf ispreferably cut back, as shown at 6, thus separating the underlapping index portions 7 7 of each leaf.
The device shown and described is very simple both in construction and operation;
but its use effects a considerable saving of time and labor. lt may evidently be modi- .fied in detail without departing from the spirit of the invention. I

An assorting-le for bank-checks or the like consisting of a stiff bottom cover, a series of flexible leaves of uniform width and uniformly-decreasing length evenly arranged at one end between said covers, spacing-strips between said'evenly-arranged ends of the leaves, a stiff top cover of reduced length rigidly bound at one end to said evenly-arranged ends of the bottom cover and of the interposed leaves, said bottom and top covers being rigidly retained in approximately parallel positions and the free index ends of the interposed leaves being'ie'xibly retained' in approximately parallel position vtherewith substantially as set f orth.
