SHIPPING-TAG.

Patented Oct. 26, 1909.

938,31?. Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed November 13, 1%8. Serial No. 462,473.

To on whom 1it may concern: v

Be it known that l, JACKSON WV. FOSTER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Jacksonville, in the county of Duval and State of Florida, have invented a new and useful Shipping-Tag, of which the following is a specification. n

rlliis invention relates to shipping tags and more particularly to tags designed to be attached to trunks, valisesand the like.

The object of the invention is to provide a shippingt-ag made up of a housing and of a leatl inovably` mounted therein and designed to contain the naine and address of the person to whom the tagged article is to be delivered. There is therefore no danger of this data being smeared or otherwise obliterated in transit, and, at the same time, the naine andv address are not revealed to the gaze et bystanders.

Another object of the invention is to provide a tag ot this character in rwhich the securing cord or wire constitutes means for pivot-ally connecting the leaf to thehousing.

A. still further object is to provide means whereby the leaf can be conveniently grasped for the purpose of withdrawing it from the housing.

lilith these and other objects in view the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter more fully described-and pointed out in the claims.

-l-n the accom ianying drawings the preterre/d form o the invention has been shown.

ln said drawings :Mlligure l is a front elevation of a tag' embodying the present improvement. Fig. 2 is a similarl view, showing the lea-f partly withdrawn from its housing. Fig. 3 is a central longitudinal section through the tag. Fig. 4 is a trans versc section therethrough on line A-'B Fig. l. v

Referring to the figures by characters of reference l designates a housing preferably formed or" a single length of' metal, leather or other suitable material foldedupon itself along a line extending transversely thereof at-its center, the terminals of the said length of material being preferably rounded and 4provided with reinforced re isterinv o enh ings 2 to receive the looped end 3 of a `tas-tenuig cord or wire 4. One side of this housing is 'formed with a recess 5 osuflicient size to receive the ends of two fingers and normally exposed within and extending across this recess is a leaf 6, movably mounted within the, housing and having an aperture 7 adjacent one end designed to reg,- ister with the openings 2 and through which the looped end 3 extends. It will be apparent therefore that this looped end 3 constitutes a pivot on which the leaf G is designed to swing relative to the housing 1.

In using the device here described the leaf G is grasped between two fingers inserted into the recess 5 and is swung outwardly from the housing as indicated in Fig. 2. The namel and address of the person to whom the-object is to be shippedare then written on the leaf 6, after which the said leaf is returned to the housing, and the tag can then be attached to the article to be shipped, the cord or wire 4i being used for this purpose. lnasinuch as the leaf (l is normally concealed within the housing l it will be obvious that the data thereon will not be exposed to Viewl and will be protected from rain. Moreover, there will be' little danger of the dat-a becoming smeared or otherwise obliterated as a result of handling. When it .is desired to read the contents of the leaf 6 it is merely necessary to swing it out of' position Within the housing 1.-

.Although this device is capable of being used for all purposes where shipping tags are employed, itV is especially desi ned for use in connection with trunks, trave ing ba s and the like7 and can be formed attractive y of metal or leather.

It isto be understood that various changesmay be made in the construction and arrangement of the parts Without departing from the .spirit or sacrificing the advantages `of the invention.

It'iwill be noted that byjtighteiiing lthe looped end 3 of the fastening device 4 the ends of the housing may be clamped up'on e the leaf, to hold it against movement:

What is claimed is 1. A shipping tag comprising a housing, e. flexible "securing device 'extending therethrough and projecting therebeyond and constitutingthe sole connection between the sides of the housing at one end, and alaaf pivotallyl mounted upon' said device and beyond the housing.
