T Maaamam,

Be it known that we, LOUIS J Hmnn and. HENRY J. HINDE, citizens of the United States, and residents of Toledo, in the county of Lucas and State of Ohio, have invented a certain new and useful Bottom Structure for Metallic Packages; and we do herebydeclare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

Our invention relates to metallic packages of the class stamped from sheet-metal and adapted for the packing of paints, white lead or other materials of a heavy nature and has particular reference to the bottom structures of such packages.

The object of our invention is the provi sion in a drawn sheet-metal package of this class of a bottom which is integral with the side wall thereof and so fashioned at its outer edge as to strengthen and materially improve the package.

The invention is fully described in the following specification and a preferred embodiment of the same illustrated in the accompanying drawing which is a central vertical sectional view of the lower portion of a sheet-metal package, embodylng the inthe body of a sheet-metal receptacle or package having the integral bottom or endv 2. This bottom is spun inwardly through and around the annular reinforcing wire or member 3 and is then doubled upon itself as at 4, with such doubled portion pressed closely to the top ofthe ring, and convexed back throughthe annular portion which is beaded on the rin 3, with its convex por tion approximate y meeting the bottom plane of the receptacle, as shown. The side of the package preferably extends down perfectly straight to the point where it begins to bend inwardly around the ring 3, thus avoiding any protrusion on the exterior of the side wall and placing the ring 3 wholly "within the plane of the walls to enable the edge of the doubled portion 4 to extend entirely across the top of the ring and abut, or substantially abut, against t e, side .wall. This construction permits not only a pluralstress downwardly is transmitted directly to the ring and thence to the side walls. With this construction the bottom cannot be pushed out by any force short of that needed tobuckle the material to an extent sufficient to pass the bottom throu h the ring.

We wish it understoo that our invention is not limited to any particular construction or arrangement of the parts except in so far as such limitations ares ecified in the claims.

Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is,

1. A cylindrical receptacle drawn from sheet-metal and having an end closure integral with its side wall and a reinforcing ring disposed therein at the base of the side Wall, said 'end closure having its end drawn inwardly through and around the ring and doubled upon itself over the top of the ring with such doubled portion pressed closely to and extending approximately across the top of the rin 2. A metal ic receptacle comprising a drawn cylindrical body having an end closure integral with its sidewall spun inwardly through and around a wire ring and doubled upon and convexed back through the annular portion beaded on the wire ring, said doubled portion being pressed closely to and extending across the top of the wire in substantial abutment with the side wall of the receptacle and the wire ring around which the metal is spun.

3. In a metallic package, a cylindrical sheet-metal body, having an integral end closure, an annular wire lying in the angle of the cylindrical wall of the body and the integral closure, said end closure having a marginal portion spun inward and headed around and over the wire, and an annular portion next to the marginal portion doubled on the mar inal portion and flattened down and presse ontop of the marginal portion forming a bead.
