LOUIS M. COLE, OF LOS ANGBLES, CALIFORNLQ.
Application fl-led August 8, 1911. Serial No. 643,055.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LOUIS M. COLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Los Angeles, in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Labels, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in labeling means for receptacles, cans or the like.
It is an object of the invention to provide a label upon a goods inclosing receptacle which is adapted to contain advertising matter properly exposed to view and which is also adapted to have placed thereon information, recipes or other data which may be exposed to view when desired for use.
It is an object of the invention to provide a receptacle with a movably mounted label having impressions upon both sides thereof for indicating certain data.
' more particularly described.
In the accompanying drawing forming a partof thisspecification, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a can suitable for containing any line of goods, the said can having the improved movable label mounted thereon. Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view through the can taken upon the line 22 of Fig. l but showing the can upon an enlarged scale. Fig. 3 is a plan View of the label employed, the same being flattened out as before applying to the can, the outside of the label being shown. Fig. 4 is a similar plan view showing the inside of the label.
The details of the invention will now be a I reference being had to the drawing in which 1 indicates a label which is usually made of pa er and is provided on the outside with any esired configurations, artistic designs or wording to represent the goods Which is to be inclosed in the can or receptacle to which the label is ap lied.
2 indicates a can 0 ordinary construction having projecting edge flanges 3 at its upper and lower ends for limiting the movement. of the label thereon and preventing it from. slipping from place.
The label is provided with a gummed portion on the inner surface of one end thereof as at 4 which is adapted to lap over the other end thereof when the label is applied to the can so as to be made to adhere thereto for fastening the end of the label'together, as indicated at 5 in Fig. 2. The gummed portion of the label is so arranged that when Specification of Letters Patent.

EISSUED the ends are fastened together the label will not adhere to the can or receptacle at any point but will be loosely mounted thereon as shown in Fig. 2. The said label is also provided with a line or indicating mark 6 upon its outer surface showing Where the label is to be cut for removing it and the words Cut on this line may be arranged adjacent thereto. The line for cutting thelabel is .preferably located to one side of the lapped ends so that the cut need only be made through a single thickness of the paper or other material of which the label is composed.
The inner surface of the label is pro vided with various data and printed matter, which it is desired to convey to the purchaser of the goods, for instance a port-i0 of said label on its inner s1n'fa*ce isprovided with printed matter indicating that it is a coupon, one or more of which if saved and presented to the company selling the goods will command some kind of a premium. The inner surface of the said label is provided with a line 7 indicating where the same should be cut to sever the coupon therefrom. The remaining portion of the label upon its inner surface is preferably provided with desirable data such for instance as recipes for preparing the material contained in the can 'if it be food or for cooking generally or for setting forth any other desirable or useful information. The label thus forms a desirable addition to the receptacle not only because of its advertising qualities in setting forth the prop erties of the goods for the merchant or distribnter, but also because of the information, coupons or the like which is obtained by removing and preserving the said label. It Will be understood that a label of this character may be applied to various kinds of receptacles, cans or the like'in which goods are packed so that said label may be movably placed thereon and capable of being removed for the purposes above set forth.
What I claim is: As a new article of manufacture, thecombination with a cylindrical can provided on its upper and lower edges with retaining flanges, of a label having printed display matter on the outer surface and a printed coupon and other useful printed matter on the inner surface thereof, the ends of said label being pasted together when mounted upon said can, said label being free to move tached therefrom in an unmutilated condi- 10 in a circular direction on said can but pretion.
