To all whom, it 71mg; concern.- H
Be it known that 1, JAMES M. Mctksnv, a. citizen of the United States, residing st Riceviiie, in the county of Mitchell sri'iiStste of Iowa, have invented certain nerv sndnsefni Improvements in Machines for 'He-ndling Coins; and I do hereby declare the following tobe a full, clear, and exact description'of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it epperteins to make and use the same.
My invention relates to machines for handling coins; and it embodies in its structure an improved money-drawer, an automatic money-changer, and a register for preserving accounts of all business transactions.
The object of the invention is to provide a machine of this character actuated by e serics of hey-levers whereby any desired amount in coin can he automatically discharged.
Another object is to provide means whorehy coins can he quickly deposited Within proper receptacles provided for them, means being utilized for preventing the coins from locating in other than the proper receptacles provided for them.
A still further object is to employ mechanism by means of which more than one coin of the same denomination can be discharged from the machine upon one depression of the proper key-lever. r r
A further obiect is to provide a money drawer adapted to be automatically opened when a proper key is depressed, seid operation causing a hell to be sounded.
A still further object is to employ novel mechanism for sounding the bell whenever one or more coins are discharged from the apparatus.
Other objects are the provision of a. tape for the reception of data. relating to business transactions, said tape being wound by mechanism actuated by the coin-ejectin g on d drawer-operating devices.
With the above and other objects in view the invention consists of certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts, which will be hereinafter more fully dcscrihed, and pointed out in the claims;
In the accompanying (:lrawings I have shown the preferred form of my invention.

Fig. 5 is a plan view of the machine with the top removed. Fig. 6 is a bottom perspective view of a portion of the Fig. 7 is e perspective view of a. double coin-plunger. Fig. 8 is a perspective view, p erti y in section, showing the corn neotion between one of the key-levers and its coupling-her. Fig. 9 is a perspective view showing the recorder-actuating mechanism, an d Fig. 10 is a detail view of the key-indicatingteble. 7
Referring to the drawings by characters of reference, iG'is e casing which may be shitably ornamented and is formed integral with :1 preferably enlarged base 11, in which '5 fitted s drawer 12, which can be subdivided into suitable receptacles 13 for the reception of coins, hills, &c. This drawer when closed beers against a spring 14, which is secured to the hack of the case and in rear of the drawer and is held normally under tension. A lever 15 is pivoted above the draweriZ to an car 16, which depends from a. partition 17, extending throughout the width and. depth of the casing. The front end of this lever proiects through an aperture 18, formed within that portion of the partition 17 which projects beyond the front of the casing, and a key 19 is located on the projecting end of this lever so that the some may he reediiy depressed by placing a finger thereon. The rear end of'tho lever 15 has an angular extension ZGfWhich projects through an opening 21 in partition 1?, ondhas a. link 22 hanging fiornit through on opening 23 in the partition','end this iinic serves to support a latch 24, which is pivoted to our 16, and has a. shoulder 25, which is held normally in engagement with the rear wall of the drawer 12 by means of a spring 26, secured to partition 17 and bearing upon the latch 24. From the foregoing it will he'seen that the drawer 12 isheld normally locked in closed positipn by means of the lotch 24. When it is desired to open the (lIHTWCT, however, the key 19 is do ressed and causes lever 35 to swing upon its lcrum and a sesses 24 upward by means of link 23, thereby releasing the rear with of the a take-up roll 84,
extends from side to side thereof.
drawer l2 and permitting the spring 14 to throw the drawer outward. When the drawer is pressed inward, it will first compress the spring 14, anld after the rear wall of the drawerpasses the shoulder said shoulder will be forced downward into engagement therewith by lneahs of the s )ring 26.
The topof the casing 10 is closed by a lid 27, which is hinged to the rear wall of the casing and isadapted to be locked in closed position in any suitable manner. This lid as-a hood'28 .etachably secured on the rear po'rtionthereof in any suitable manner, and this hood extends the greater portion of the width of the lid and has an upwardly-extending flange formed by the front. portion or edge thereof. The hood is closed at the sides and back; but the front thereof is open, and projectin thereinto is a hinged plate 30, having side anges 3], and an elongated slot 32 is formed within this plate and extends from side to side thereof. 'A series of smaller alining slots 33 are formed within )lfllG 30 close to the base of the flange 29. late 34] normally contacts with and is supported by to which is secured one end of a tape 35,'adapted to be wound thereon from a feed-roll 36. This feed-roll 36, as well as the roll 34-, is mounted between sup ports 37, secured to a crossplate 88, which is tastened to the sides of the easing 1 and extends throughout the width of said casing, A rod 39 is preferably inter )osed between the two rolls, so as to properly guide the tape from the feed-roll to theroll 34. The tape is ruled longitudinally, as shown, through the slot 32 in Fig. 1, and the lines upon the tape are so disposed as to pass between the small slots 33. I Flange 29 is subdivided so as to corres 0nd with the columns on the-tape, and tliese subdivisions are designated by headings, such as Clerk No, Cash, Charge, &e. The roll 34 has a ratchet- Wheel 40. secured to it, and said wheel is normallv engaged by a pawl 41, which is pivoted to a lever 42, fulcruined at one end on one of the supports 37. A spring 43 connects the pawl with the lever 42, sons to hold the pawl normally in engr-igement with the ratchetwheel, and another. spring 44 is connected at opposite ends to lever 42 and so )port 37 and constitutes a resilient support forthe lever 42. A rod 45 is secured to and. depends from lever 42 and'is pivoted to one end of a lever 46, fulcrumed at a point between its ends on a shaft 47, extending from side to side within the casing 10, and theother end of this lever 46 is connected, by means of a rod 48, with an arm 49, extending from a second shaft 50, which is disposed within the casing 10 and For the purpose of clearness this arm 49 has not been shown in Fig. 2, but is disclosed in Fi". 9. Another arm 51 extends from the she t and bears on the inner end of the extension 20 of-key-lever 15, and a third arm 52 extends from shaft 50 and is connected to one end of a sprin 53, the other end of which is secured to a tTxedportior! of the casing 10.
n actuatin or tripping arm 54 extends from shaft 50 ant has a beveled end which is normally seated within a recess 5.5,f01lfl6d in a link 56. This link is pivoted to an elongated lever 57, and the outer or free end of the link 56 is beveled and rests upon a supporting-pin 58. A coiled spring 59 is connected to lever 57- adjacent its fulcrum and serves to hold the upper end of said lever normally against a stop-pin 60. A hammer 61 is pivoted to lever 57 and is held normally rejected at an angle therefrom by a weak ow-s ring 62. This hammer normally contacts lig tly with a bell 63, disposed within the casing. A small coiled spring 6-1 connects the link 56 with the lever 57, so that the beveled end of said link is held positively in contact with pin 58.
With the mechanism above described it will be seen that each time the key 19 is depressed the arm 51 will be forced upward by extension .20 and cause shaft 50 to artly rotate This rotation of the shaft will produce two operationsto wit, the partial rotation of roll 34 and the sounding of bell 63. The roll 34 is actuated by arm 49, which transmits motion to lever 42 through lever 46 and rods 48 and 15. When lever 42 is drawn downward by the actuation of shaft 50, the pawl 41 rotates the ratchet-wheel 40 one notch and the tape is partly wound on the roll 34, and a blank space thereon is brought under slot 32, and any suitable data maybe inscribed thereon in the proper column. The second operation to wit, the sounding of the bellis reduced in the following manner: When s raft 50 is partly rotated, the actuating or tripping arm 54 presses against link .36, and as this link has a beveled end bearing on pin 58 it will be forced upward as it moves toward the pin and will at the same time carry the lever 57 and hammer 61 away from hell 63. After this movement has been carried on a predetermined time the link 56 will be lifted entirely out of engagement with the actuating-arm 54, and therefore the spring; 59, which is tensioned by the operation described, returns the lever 57 quickly into contact with sto -pin and throws the hammer 6-1 against t to hell 63. As soon as key it) is released and pressure is removed from arm 51 the spring 53 will return the shaft 50 and all the parts connected thereto to their normal positions, and the actuating or tripping arm 54c will reassume its place within the recesses of link 56. r
The lid 27 is cut inward at its front edge, and the front wall of the casin is also cut away along the top, so that a shef 64 can be disposed beneath the cut-away portion of the lid and in rear of the front of the casing. This IIO . shell is located directly below an inclined strip ameter of a dime, t e third to a nickclf the fourth to a quarter, the fifth to a (haltdollar-f and the sixthto a dollar) Each chute has a circular opening 67 in the bottom thereof directly above the shelf 64, and opening is of slightly less diameter thaii th width of the chuter It will therefore be seen that if a dime is placed within the cent-chute it will not pass over the opening 67, lantern be discharged therethrough onto the slielf 6%. Of course any other coin larger'thaii'acent could not be placed within the oent-chutebecause of its width. The same means fordischar coins inipro erly laced is followed in all oft echuteS an it wi thereforebe seen that by means of my novel arrangement of selective devices the coins can be uickly deposited uponthe strip 65 until al of them shall dither pass along the chute into the receptacles provided for them or fall through the openings 67 These dropped coins can subsequently be removed from the shelf and placed in their proper chutes. The lower ends of the chutes extend under a guardstrip 68, which extends from side to side of the strip and serves to close the inlet ends of apertures 69, which are formed within the lid 27 at the lower ends of thechntes and are exactly equal in diameter to the Width of their rcspective'chutes, These openings 69 register'with the upper ends of com artments 70, which are formed within a bloc 7 l,-snit ably secured within the casing. The cornpartmen'ts are preferably so disposed as, to
assume upright positions when the machine is in use, and the front wall of each coinpartment has a 1011 itudinally-extending slot'72 therein, througl which the contents of the various receptacles can be readily seen. It" will of course be understood that the slotted; wail of the block 71 constitutes the rear wall of the shelf 64.
A supporting-strip 73 extends longitudi nally under the block 71 and is spaced these from a distance e ual to the thicknessof ciis' or more coins. his supporting-strip has a series of semicircular recesses 74 in its front edge, and the inner portions of thewalls of these recesses are preferably normally dis: posed in'alinement with the longitudinal centers of the receptacles 70. it will therefore be seen that any coins within the receptacles will normally rest upon the supporting strip 7 3 and will partly overlap the recesses 7 4 in of the receptacles 70.
said strip, but will beprevented from falling, by I avit ,out of position within their receptac es. he supportin strip '13 has cars 75 depending from its on s, and these earsare connected, by means of links 76, with arms 7 7, extending from the ends of a shaft 7 8 rotatably mounted within the casing 10. A. manigulatingorm 79 also extends from the shaftYS and is secured at itsfree end to a. fixed portion of the casing 10 by means of a coiledspring 80. Strip 73 is supported and slidably mounted on blocks 81, which are located under the ends of said strip and ariinpheld by bow-springs 82. Theseblocks eonstitute resilient supports for the strigc fi and serve to hold it normally pressed upward in proper relation with the'receptaole-block] 1. A set-screw 83 projects throuphthe blockjl from the top to bottom thereo i2, and this set-screw serves to bear upon a near each slot slide 1y mounted between tri 73 and each Paralle beads 84faife' formed on the block 71 at opposite sides of the lower end of each receptacle 70, and these beads constitute guides for the coin plunger referred to. Each of these plungers consists of a plate 85, havin side flanges 86,
adapted to fit between. an
ber 91 of a bell crank plunger-actuating le ver': This block 90 is held normall I in contact with a stop strip 92 by means 0 a coiled spring 93, which connects the other member 94 of the lever with a cross-strip 95, fixedly secured to the casing 10. The head 8913f the hanger is in turn held clamped u on the lilcck 96 by means of a rod 96, whic is slidably mounted in one end of a lever 9?, pivoted on a shaft 98 and having its lower end overlapped by an arm 99, extending from the shaft 50. A coiled spring 100 is secured at one end to the overlapped end of lever 97 and at its other end to a crossstrip 101, secured ivith the casing, and this spring 100 exerts a constant pull'on the rod 96 three h lever 97 The rod 96 is'slidably mounted in ever 97, so that said lever can swing toward the head 8Q Without actnat' ngit; but a head 10?. is located upon the end of rod 96, so that said lever 97 cannot be swung away from head 89 independently thereof.
As hereinhefore stated, each race tacle 70 has a plunger 35 located thereum or. The plungers located under the nickel, half-dollar,
hear u on the beads 84, I An opening 87 is forms within 95 the plunger and rsadanted to normally rest .coins at one operation.
-tothe left side thereof? and dollar receptacles, however, are double, as shown in Fig. '7, wherein it will be seen that the plunger is slidably mounted upon a second plunger 103, provided with an opening 104, which normally registers with the opening 87. The stem of this plunger 103 is located at one side of and parallel with the stem 88 and has a head 106, which is normally overlapped by a flange 107-, formed.
upon the head 89. Each. of the plungers 85 and 103 has a separate operating-block 90, so that by actuating one of the blocks of a double plunger the plunger 103 thereof will be actuated to discharge a single coin, whereas by actuating the block 90, contacting with head 89, both plungers 85 and 103 will be actuated simultaneously to discharge two As hereinbefore stated, a double plunger is preferably located beneath the nickel, half-dollar, and dollar receptacles. The plungers of all the receptacles are provided with similar actuatin inechanismto wit, bell-crank levers 91 and 94 and hell-actuating levers 97. The members 94 of the actuating-levers of the cent and dollar plungers, however, project directly through slots 108 in the front of the casing and have keys 109 thereon. It is to be noted also that a third actuating-lever is utilized in connection with the dollar-plunger. In other words, one lever bears upon the head 106, whereas two levers are adapted to independently actuate the head 89. This is shown in Fig. 5.
For convenience in further disclosing my construction I have designated the actuatinglever of the cent-plunger by the letter A, of the dime-plunger by the letter B, of the nickel-plungers by the letters (1 and (1, of the quarter-plunger bv the letter D, of the halfdollai plungers by' the letters E and E, and of the mechanism of the dollarplungers by the letters F, F, and F It will be noted that the centoperating lever A is disposed at one side of the casing, whereas the three-dollaroperating levers F, F, and F are located. at the other side. The lower members 94 of these levers, as hereinbefore stated, terrninate in keys 109. The lower members 94 of the levers B, C, and C, I), E, and E are grouped together at the center of the apparatus and do not extend from the casing. Arranged at each side of this group of members 94 are parallel keydevers 110. These key-levers are all mounted at their rear ends on a shaft 111, extending from side to side of casing 10, and they extend above and at right angles to coupling-bars 112. As shown particularly in Figs. 2 3, and 4, these coupling-bars are disposed in two parallel roups. The bars of each rou are similar, the only difference being t rat in one group the bars are pivoted to the right side of the casing, whereas in the other 'rou they are pivoted 4 ach bar lllis pivotally connected to an ear-1.]3,while its other end is slidably mounted between guides 114. A. spring is secured to the casing adjacent the ear 113 and serves to resilientl r en port the bar 112. Each bar is adapter. to e actuated by one of the key-levers 110, and the means for connecting each key-lever with its coupling-bar 112 has been shown in detail in Fig. 8. It will be seen that each of the coupling bars 112 has a tubular extension 116 projecting upward therefrom, and in each is slidably mounted a rod 117, havin a hooked end 118, which projects into a sIot 119 in the key-lever 110 and engages a pin 120 therein. By means of this connection it will be seen that when the key-lever is depressed it will bear on the tube 116 and force down its couplin bar 112. The couplingbar, however, ean be depressed without cans ing a correspondin movement of the key-lever. While I prefer to connect the key-levers and coupling-bars in the manner shown ii. Fi 8, I can, if desired, utilize any other welldznown means for coupling the two parts.
As shown in Fig. 2, I employ novel means for coupling the bars 112 with the respective plunger-actuating levers B, C, and (J, I), E, and E. Each coupling-bar has one or more rods 121 extendingupward from it, and each of these is slidably mounted within a tapered aperture '22, formed in the proper lever member 94. Each rod has ahead 123 at its upper end, so that when the rod is iulled down the plunger-operating lever in w ich it mounted will be carried therewith. None of these rods .121, however, can be carried downward bv the lever members 94.
I preferably arrange the keydevers so that the keys thereon will be in two rows one above the other, the lower keys being disposed belowthe spaces between the up er keys. Moreover, the kc s are prefera 1y designated bynumerals, the first key having the numeral 1 thereon, the next 5, the next 10, and so on consecutively, increasing five with each key until the numeral 95 is reached. The key adjoining the "95 key is preferably designated by 3.00, the next 2.50, the next 2.00, and the next 1 .00. These numerals are used to designate the amount of money which will be discharged from the machine when the key is depressed. In order to get the proper result, it is neces sary to couple the bar 112 of each key-lever with the proper plurrgerhctuating bar. For instance, in order to get fifteen cents by depressing the key 15 it is necessary to con-. nect its coupling-bar 112 to lever B and lever C. Therefore when the key 15 is depressed both the bar B and bar (1 will be pulled downward by rods 121 engaging the stem of the coupling-bar 112, and the plungers actuated. by the levers B and C will he slid. forward, carrying therewith any coins contained within the penings therein. The
any of the coup lever B, as hereinbefore stated, controls the lunger of the dime-receptacle, whereas the ever C controls the secondary plunger 105 of the nickel-receptacle. Whenthe nickel and dime plungers are thrown forward in the manner herein described, the coins within their apertures 87 and 104 will be pushed into position over the recesses 74 in supportingstrip 73 and will drop into an inclined chute 124, which is secured'within the casing 10 and extends under strip 73 throughout the length thereof, the end of said chute projecting' beyond one side of the casing. As soon as the coins are deposited within the chute in the manner shove described they will slide by gravit to the outlet end thereof, where they can e allowed to fall into the hand of the user. The other keys are all connected in the manner hereinhefore described to their proper cou ling-bars l 12, so. that when a key is de resse the amount represented thereon will e )romptl discharged into chute 124. It will e note however, that the Lflfi and 2.00 ke -levers are not connected to in -bars, but directly operate their plungers. 'i he 2.50 key leveghow ever, is in addition to being connected di rectlv to the operating-block 90 of the heed 89 of the 1.00 plunger connected to one of the couplinghers, uhicli in turn is adapted to actuate the secondaryhsll-dollsr-plunger-- actuating lever E Therefore depressing the 2.50 key it will not only let two silver dollars be projected by the two plungers 85 and 103 of the drfiler-receptacle, but also a half-dollar will be projected into the chute. In order to get three dollars, a yoke 125 is disposed upon the lever of the 3.08 key and extends over the 2.50 l e' lever and bears upon the 2.00 key'lever, so that when the 3.00 key is depressed the 2.00 key will be actuated thereby to reject two dollars into the chute. In addition to this result two half-dollars will be projected into the chute, because the 3.00 key-lever is connected to a coupling-bar, which in turn eetu ates the plunger-operating lever E, which causes the rejection of two half-dollars simultsneous y Withthe projections of the two dollars In order that the proper change can. always be produced without rcquirin the operator to calculate the same, I provi .e a table 125; which is located u on the front of the casing" directly shove the eye. This table is subdi vided into at number of parallel columns equel to and directly above the keys. These columnists are suhdivided by lines which form tress? verscly extending columns designated by the Words Kcys, Quurter doller, gal? duller, Seventy-five cents, and lilolier. The first vertical column at the left of the ts.- hle contains the numerals O1, 24, 49, 7s, and 99. The keys-columneonteins in addition to the numeral 01 ninnerels "5, 10, &c., up morals 3.00, 32.50; 2.00, and 1.00; The quertersdollar column contains at the left in' edditionto the numersl 24 the nu' morals 2],' 15 10, and 5. -The half-dollar column inr'addition to the numeral 49 contains the numerals 45, 40, &c., down to the numeral 5. The seventysfivecents column contains in addition to the numoral 74 the numerals 70, 65, $0," and 955. The dollar-column contains in addition to the numerel 99 the numerals 95, 90, 85, the, down to 5. Arranged in the seventy-five-cents column, at the right of the center thereof, are the words Five dollars, which designate a, column of four figuresto Wit, 2.00, j2.5o, 3.00, and 4.00, By closely examining the table, a.
detail View of which is shown in Fig. 10, it
will be seen that by deducting any number in u horizontal column from the amount indicsted h ,the heading of said column the re sultwil be the same ssthe numeral et the head of the vertical cclumn. in other words, if a purchase is thirty cents and a half-dollar is presented in payment by glancing along the hell-dollar column to the numeral 30 it will be seen that the number in the keyscolumn directly above the 30 is 20, which is the amount oi change necessary. The operator, however, is not required to glance at the keys-column in operating the machine, as the numeral 30' is directly above the key numbered 20, and therefore by pressing on the key directly under the amount of the urchsse the'proper change will be produced If a purchase of twenty three cents is made and a. half-duller is pie to 95 and then the nu sented, the cent-key is depressed twiceto" make the purchase e uel to twenty-five cents and then thelrey under the 25 in the heliclollsr column is depressed, with the result thst'in addition to the two cents first discharged a, quarter will be added theneto, melting the proper cha e of twenty-seven cents. The same metho can be followed in making any change, and, as before stated,
' where a table such as is illustrated by me is employed it is not necessary for the operator to do any calculating. It is only necessary for him to depress the key indicating the purchase in the column designating the amount presented in ayment.
Should it so desired to remove all of the coins from the machine, asst the end of the deyfs business, it is merely necessary to raise the lid 27 and pull up onsrin 79. The strip ?3 will then be drawn beckon its supportinglocks 81 so that the recesses M wi register with the openings in the pin ers. The coins in all of the receptacles 7G \iifil then drop di' neatly into the'ohute 124 and will be discharged at the side of the machine.
It will he noted that by the employment of the erzn 99 on shaft 50 and the several levers 97one for each coin-plunger-the bell .what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is J 1. The combination with coin-e ect1ng mechanism, and an arm integral therewith having a tapered aperture therethrough; of a key-lever, a spring-supported movable couplin -bar ada ted to be actuated by the lever,
