W. W. GEDDES.

PRICE CARD HOLDER.

APPLICATION FILED JAN.5,1912.

1,054,192, Patented Feb. 25, 1913.

Attorneys 1 I I I by W WARREN W. GEDDES, OF PENSACOLA, FLORIDA.

PRICE-CARD HOLDER.

Application filed January 5, 1912.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, TVARREN 1V. GEDDES, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pensacola, in the county of Escambia and State of Florida, have invented a new and useful Price-Card Holder, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to price tag holders for cigar boxes or other merchandise containers.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a tag holder which will display a plurality of tags and which may be readily and securely clamped on the box lid.

A further object is to provide a holder in which the retaining clip and the tag holders are constructed of a single piece of sheet metal.

In the drawing: Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device secured to the lid of a cigar box, the device being formed for attachment to the right hand side of a box lid. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the device removed, the one shown being formed for attachment to the left hand side of a box lid. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section. Fig. i'is a transverse section. Fig. 5 is a detail view of the blank from which the holder is formed. Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a slightly modified form of holder applied to a box. Fig. 7 is a sectional view of the form shown in Fig. (3.

In the drawings, Fig. 5 shows the blank from which the holder is constructed. This blank consists of the strip 11, the terminals let of which form flat plates 12 and let. The blank is bent upon the lines 15 and 16 to form a resilient connection between the plates in order that the same may resiliently engage the faces of the box lid 17. The plate 12 is formed with the extension 18 which is disposed at right angles to the plate and which when the holder is positioned upon the box, contacts with the rear wall of the box to support the cover. The plate 12 is also formed with tongues 19 and 20 which are downturned and which contact with the edge of the box lid to retain the holder adjacent said edge. The plate 1% is formed with the extension 21 which forms a frame and which is bent to hold the tag 22 on the plate 14, the edge of the plate 1 1 remote from the frame being provided with Specification of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 669,704.

a tongue 24: which is bent over the edge 25 of the frame. In forming the frame a portion of the metal is removed leaving a tongue 26 which terminates in the circular plate 27 on which a second tag is placed and retained by a ring 28. While the tag is shown as supported by rings, it will be noted that instead of this retaining means, the same may be pasted to the plate, the entire device with the exception of the tag,

being formed of a single piece of material.

This tag is disposed at right angles to the tag holding plate 14 and in instances where the goods vended are cigars, one of the tags may state the price for a single cigar and the other the price for three or more. The advantages of a holder of this construction will be clearly apparent, as it will be noted that the same provides a holder which may be readily placed upon the box lid and maintained in a certain position there, the holder displaying a plurality of tags and the entire construction being formed of a single piece of material which may be conveniently bent in the desired shape.

The modified form of holder shown in Figs. 6 and 7 is designed for use with boxes in which the lid is supported flush with the rear wall of the box, the holder clamping the lid to said rear wall. In this form, a single piece of sheet metal is bent intermediate its ends to form the plates 29 and 30, the plate 30 being formed with a tongue 31 which is bent to engage the edge 32 of the plate 29 holding the plates in superposed relation. The plate 30 is provided with the opening 33, the 'tag being placed be tween the plates through the pinion 33' and viewed through the opening 33. The plate 30 is formed with the plate 35 similar to the plate 2st and adapted to receive a tag 36 which is retained on the plate by a ring 37. The lower plate 29 is formed with the extensions 33 and 39, the extension 38 which is of greater length than the exten sion 39, contacting with the cover of the box and the extension 39 contacting with the inner face of the rear wall, both of the extensions being bent inward at 10 to contact with the box. It will be noted that this construction provides a tag holder which may be readily placed upon a box and which will display a plurality of tags, the entire structure being formed of a single piece of sheet metal.

What is claimed as new is 1. A tag holder formed of a single piece of sheet metal bent to form a pair of resiliently spaced plat-es for engaging the faces of a box lid, the lower plate being formed with an extension which contacts with the boX to support the lid, a frame formed integral with the other plate and adapted to lie flush with the same to retain a tag, the frame having a portion cut from the central part and arranged at an angle to the plane of said frame to support a second tag.

2. A tag holder formed of a single piece of metal bent to form a pair of resilient spaced plates a tag retaining member osaaea formed integral with one of said plates and a tag holding member formed integral with and disposed at an angle to said last mentioned plate.

3. A tag holder formed of a single piece of sheet metal bent to form a pair of resilient spaced plates, a tag retaining member formed integral with one of the said plates, and disposed to lie flush with the same, and a tag holding member formed integral with and disposed at an angle to said tag retaining member.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto aflixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
