UNITED STATES" PATENT I oFFIoE.

BJARN-E CRANNER, OF KONGSBERG, NORIVAY.

APPARATUS FOR SORTING OR SEPARATING COINS.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known thatI, BJARNE CRANNER, a subject of the King of Sweden and Norway, residing at Kongsberg, Norway, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Apparatus for Sorting or Separating Coins and My invention relates to means for sorting;

. or separating coins, and has for its object 1 an improved apparatus for this purpose which is of a ver great efficiency.

My invention consists in combination of means and arrangement of parts, which will be hereinafter explained with reference to the annexed drawings, showing a preferred form of my a paratus, and which will be pointed out in t e claims.

In the drawings, Figure 1 shows a front view of the apparatus, and Fig. 2 an enlarged side view, partly in section, of the top portion of the same.

A is a central, preferably hollow, post secured to a foot B. Around this post in a screw line is mounted a slope or rail C, on which the coins are caused to roll down, the slope being carried by brackets C, projecting from the post. On the external side of the slope there is a wall or back D, against which the coins lean when rolling down theslop e. This wall has a number of apertures E, the height of which is increasing from the upper to the lowermost one, each of the apertures corresponding in height to the diameter of different coins. The coins rollin down the slope and being by the centrii n al force pressed outwardly against the wal will tip out through one of the apertures and dro into a cup F, there being a number of suc cups, one for each kind of coins, placed on the simple construction and of base-plate B or hung on the post or under-- Heath the slope. It will be understood that the actual height of the apertures should not be made as large as the diameter of thecoins, there remaining a rib at the foot of the wall, so that the diameter of the coins will have to correspond with the distance from the rail to the upper line of the aperture. The upper Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed March 27, 1905. Serial No. 262,324.

Patented Feb. '13, 1906.

part of the slope is made of increasing width and is outwardly inclined in the manner shown in the drawings, terminating in an incline G, which extends to the post andforms a continuation of an inclined bottom or abutment within the post, the latter being at this point apertured, as shown. The up er part of the post forms a chute, through wliich the coins are dropped. On top of the post there is a collar H, and within the chute cross-bars K are placed, which to some degree def-er the coins in descendin to the incline I and prevent them from c oking up the chute if a great lot of coins is at once thrown into the chute. When a coin slides down the incline I G, it comes into rolling contact with the wall D, and as the latter is helical the centrifugal force will successively lift the coin from the inclinedrail and force it a ainst the wall, whereupon it will roll down t e rail till it is thrown out through an aperture in the wall.

I claim- 1. In acoin-sorting apparatus, a helical rail on which the coins ro'll, avertical or nearlyvertical wall at the external side of said rail having coin-apertures therein, and means to give the coins such inclined position relatively to the axis of the helical rail that they are automatically lifted to roll on edge under the influence of the centrifugal force.

. 2. In a coin-sorting a paratus, a helical rail I on which the coins rol a vertical or nearlyvertical wall at the external side of said rail having coin-sorting apertures. therein, and an incline to give the coins such inclined osition relatively to the axis of the helical rail thatthey are automatically lifted to roll on edge under the influence of the centrifugal force.

3. In a coin-sorting a paratus, a helical rail on which the coins roll? a. vertical or nearlyvertical wall at the external side of said rail having longitudinal coin-sorting apertures therein, and an incline at the up er end form- I ing a continuation of the rail a apted to give the coins such inclination 'relatlvely to the axisof the rolling-path that theyare automatically lifted'to roll on edge fluence of the centrifugal force. 1

4. In acoin-sorting apparatus, a helical rail, a vertical or nearly-vertical wall at the external side of said rail having longitudinal coin-sorting apertures therein, the successive apertures increasin in height, and a continuation of the rail at t e upper end having such under' the inouter edgle erein, a chute on the post having ainclination as to cause the coins to be automatically lifted to roll on edge under the influence of the centrifugal force.

5. In a coin-sorting apparatus, a helical rail carried by the same, a wal at-the of the rail'having coin-sorting apertures t bottom to direct coins onto the rail and of 'such inclination as to cause the coins to automatically turn on edge under the influenceof the centrifugal force given by the rail.

' 6. In a coin-sorting apparatus, a post, a

' chute mounted thereon, means in the chute i to preventthe coins from choking the same,

.a vertical or nearly-vertical wall, an inclined helical rail connecting the chuteand Wall,

' said-chute and rail having such inclination as to cause the coins to automatically turn on edge under the influence ofthe centrifugal force given by the rail.

7. In a coin-sorting apparatus, a' central prost, a hopper mounted thereon, a chute fed on said opper, cross-bars in the chute, an inclined bottom in said chute, a helical rail forming a continuation of said bottom and supported by vertical wall at the'outer edge of said rail and 0st, a

said post, a vertical or nearly therein.

8. In a coin-sorting apparatus, a central having longitudinal coinsorting apertures hollow post having a lateralaperture near its top, a hopper mounted on the top, cross-bars mounted in the post beneath the hopper, an incline in the post beneath the cross-bars, a

helical rail mounted on theexterior of the post and forming a continuation of the incline, a vertical or nearly-vertical-Wall at the outer edge of said rail having longitudinal coin-sorting slots therein, and a receptacle supported by the post in close roximity to each slot to receive the coins fa ling through said slots.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name in presence of two subscrlblng Witnesses.

BJARNE CRANNER.
