COIN-DELIVERING MACHINE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed May 26, 1911.

Patented J uly 28, 1 914.

Serial No. 629,593.

To al vellum it may concern:

Be it known that I, BENJAMIN C. Rossini, a citizen of the Uni-ted States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois. have invented certain new and useful improvements in Coin-Delivering Machines, of which the following is a full, clear, concise, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming av part of this specification.

My invention relates to coin delivering machines, that is, devices of 'that class wherein selective ejecting mechanism is associated with a magazine for coins or other tokens.

of this definition and have properly referred to my invention, therefore, as an improvement in the structure, and consequently in the operation, of such devices.

Simplicity of construction. reliability in operation, and (iOllVrlllQllCO in use are the primary objects of my inv ntion, and to these ends I provide novel structures and arraugmzuuts uhith are made the subjectmattcr ot' the appended claims.

The first-named object of my invention is attained by the employment of few, and so far as possible, standard or uniform parts. This is particularly desirable, since the various parts are conveniently formed by stamping operatitms, and when such a process is followed, the standardizing of the mechanical elements is economical.

The second-named object of my invention is secured by novel ejecting mechanism. This feature of my device involves improved means for engaging and thrusting the coins from the magazine and associated mechanism for locking the ejectors against operation should the magazine or any part thereof be emptied so that a selection could not be satisfied.

The. last-incntiom-d objectof my invention has in do with the general structural arrangement, first, so that all the parts desirably sor'w'ill be plainly in evidence and so that one working upon the keyboard can take the eje ted change in his hand quickly and conveniently. This general structural arrangement involves the direct association between the selector keys and the ejector mechanisms, this being particularly desirable in connection with rcliabilit in open .ation. The keys are at the bottom f the machine, arrang d to term a k yb ard I am aware that in the prior art there are machines coming wltlnn the erms slightly inclined to horizontal, and the hopper into which the change from the maga zinc is deposited is directly above it. The keys are mounted to oscillate and. being of ditlerent lengths, means provided to compensate for the dili'erence in leverage so that substantially the same power will be required to operate all the keys.

As an auxiliary feature, my invention provides a lock box which can be quickly substituted for the hopper, below the magzizinc. and the magazine may be emptied into this box, to clear the machine, by actuating the keys. In this process of clearing the machine, the money can be counted by noting the depressions of the keys, and the box can then be locked and removed from the device to a vault or safe. Such an arrangement is desirable in banks and mercantile institutions where, at the close of business hours, the money is removed from the change-limiting machine to'a vault for safe keeping.

I also provide means whereby the coin magazine is dctachably secured to the change-making machine. and it is thus pos sible to remove the entire magazine itself to a. safe or vault.

Other novel features of construction and arrangelmmt will be explained as this description proceeds.

My invention is embodied in the device illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in Wliicl1-- i I Figure 1 is a plan view thereof, part of the casing being broken away to reveal the interior construction; Fig, 2 is a side elevat-ional view thereof. the casing being shown in section to reveal the inside mechanism; Fig. 3 is a front clevational view of the machine; Fig. is a view of the operating mechanism, this view being taken approximately on the planes of the line 4 4 of Fig. la. and looking in the direction indicated by the arrows; Fig. 5 is a sectional view of part of the magazine, showing the ejector mechanism, this View being drawn on a larger scale than the foregoing; Fig (l is a special view of the hopper; Fig. 7 is a detail view showing a part of the hopper arrangement; Fig. a detail view of the ejector mechanism, drawn on an enlarged scale; Fig. 9 is a. i'aee view of the coin magar iue; Fig. i is a sectional view at right angles to the plane of Fig. 9;

these certain U-shapcd frames to operate the corresponding ejector mechanisms associated with the magazine.

The vertical front of the casing 14 is in clined slightly away from vertical and near the top thereof it is provided with two buttons 30, 30 which cooperate with slots 31, 81 in the back piece 32 of the magazine so as to support it. This arrangement provides for the ready removal of the magazine as a whole. At the bottom of the back piece 32 a shelf 33 is provided o to form the bottom of the magazine, the angle between this shelf and the back piece being slightly acute for a purpose which will be pointed out presently.

The coin holding means is in the form of a plurality of channel pieces 8-1, 3-1, of U- shaped cross-section, which rest upon the shelf 83 and are secured to the hack piece 32, these channel pieces being disposed closely side byi'side as illustrated in Figs. 1. 3, 9 and 10. The channels 34, 3t are of varying sizes so as to properly accommodate coins of different denominations It will of course be evident that a machine may be made for any set of coins or tokens and that my invention is not limited to any particular application in this respect, but for convenience in description I shall refer to its employment with the usual United States coins. Thus, the channel 34 is adapted to icceive silver dollars, a stack of which will fit snugly therein. The channel 23- will aecommodate silver half dollars. nel 34 will accommodate silver quarters. The channel 34 is adapted to accommodate nickels. Channels 34, 34 and 34 are all adapted to receive pennies and channels al and 34 are adapted'to receive dimes. In accordance with this system of applying reference characters, the U-shaped frames have been provided with corresponding capital letters so as to facilitate distinction between them. i

The shelf 33, as best shown in Figs. 1 and 10, is scalloped to correspond with the channel pieces 34, 34. being cut out in this way so that the ejector mechanism will not require. too much movement in order to thrust the coins fr m the magazine, as will be clea 1" presently. ()n the ther hand. the remaining part of the shelf is sufficient to support the stacks of coins which aripla ed in the magazine as indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 9. At the front of each of the channel pieces, and near the bottom thereof, a forward extension is provided on each side, each of these extensions having an inwardly turned. lip 38 the end of which just creases the stack of coins. Thus. iilustrr etcd in Fig. 10, the few lowermost coins. except the bottom one, are positively held against thrusting movement, these lips being just high enoughnbove thc shelf 33 to permit the The chanpassage of one coin. I note here immediately that in the case of two of the penny channels the lips are disposed high enough above the shelf to permit the expulsion of two coins at a time, this corresponding Wltll qo the associated ejector mechanisms as will be pointed out, and being necessary in order that any selection of change might be had. As before indicated, the ejector mechanism affects the lowermost coin or coins and the columns therefore move downwardly in the channels as the coins are delivered. Since the front of the casing, upon which the magazine is mounted, is disposed obliquely,

the coins will rest somewhat against the back of the magazine and will thus be kept in perfect alinement. Since the angle between the shelf 33 and the bacl; of the magazine is less than a right angle, the coins will engage the back of the magazine only at g g their edges, thus reducing the friction and lreepingithe coins properly disposed upon. one another.

The shelf is provided with a plurality of trans erse slots 37, 37 each in an approXimately central position in one of the channels, before shown in Figs. 1, 9 and 10. in alinement with each of these slots 37, 37 is a slot 38 through the back piece 32 and through the front of the casing 14, these,

slots extending upwardly above the shelf 33 a distance notgreater than the thickness of one coin, in all cases except in that of two of the penny channels, where these slots extend upwardly a i greater distance but not more 1 than the thic ness of two coins.

Each of the u shapcd bars 26, as before pointed out, is provided with an upward eX- tension, on one side in some cases and on the other side in other cases, and these exten- 1 5 sions are bent into various positions so that the ends thereof will come into respective positions near the slots described in the preceding para mph, the channels, the slots and the U-shapcd bars, being equal in' nuin- 1 her. These upward extensions are illustrated at 39. 39 and it will he noted that their upward ends are di )sed in respective relation to the various slots. l ollovving the system of distinctive reference characters, .135

which has been used herein, I have supplied. the extensions 3%) with letters corresponding to the le :ers used to individualizc the channels of the coin magazine.

The ejector mechanism is shown best in i igs. 2 and '\t the t p of each of the extensions 3?), an ejector piece 40 is mounted u'pon a pivot pin ll, this ejector piece extending forwardly into the corresponding slot 36%, as illustrated in Fig. 2. This ejector 125,

the top of the slot. it will thus be seen that when one of the U-shaped bars'is rotated in a clockwise direction (Fig. 2) the ejector 40 will engage the lowermost coin of the 'corresponding stack in the magazine and will move it forwardly, under the lips 36, 36, until it is no longer supported by the shelf The coin then drops into the hopper be low, the construction of this hopper being described in detail. hereafter. As before pointed out, the lips 36, 36 prevent the removal of more than one'coin. at a time. except in the case of two of the penny channels, Where they prevent the removal. of more than two coins at a time.

It will appear that if the contents of one or more ofthe channels should become exhausted, and if a key, requiring a selection from said channel or channels, were depressed, an erroneous delivery would result if provision were not made against it. I provide an automatic lock which Comes into play when the last coin in any channel has been disposed of. This lock, as shown in Fig. 2, is in the form of a lever arm 43 which is mounted upon the pivot pin 41 independently of the ejector piece and which, normally, extends through the slots 37 and 33 so that the stack of coins may rest upon it. The arm 43 extends rearwardly beyond the pivot Where it is formed into an enlarge ment 44, this enlargement acting as a weight for overbalancing the arm so that the for ward end of the latter will always be pressed up against the under side of the stack of coins. The arm 43 is provided'with not h 45 On the upper side thereof in line with the front of the casing 14 and the directly sociated back piece 32 of the coin magazine. Normally, however. this notch is out of en-- ga gement with the parts referred to since the stack of coins rests upon the outer end of the arm to force it downwardly, as illustrated in Fig. 2. The stack of coins normally overcomes the counterweight. 44-, even though but one coin be in the channel, the. parts being made sensitive for this purpose. l build the counterweight 4 closely about. the pivot 4-1 so that the action of the arm 43 will be sensitive. In the case of two of the penny channels, the counterweight is made of such size that two pennies will overbalancc it while it will overbalance one penny. Thus, if any one of the channels should be empty, the arm 43 will rise and the notch 45 will engage with the casing wall and the back piece of the magazine. If a key, having a projection 28 engaging a U-bar carrying this particular locking bar, is depressed, actuation will be prevented and the operator will know that one or more of the channels have become depleted. Even though one or more whichthe ejector piece 40 and the locking bar43 are mounted independently and pivotally upon the end of each of the U-bars.

The hopper 4G is mounted upon the front of the casing below the magazine so that the coins delivered from the. latter may dro into it. This hopper is of sufiicient width to extend under the aggregate length of the channels and tapers downwardly to a restricted neck 47 with vertical sides for a purpose which will be pointed out presently. The back of the hopper is supplemented by an car 48 on each side thereof and a small catch lever 49 is pivoted at 50 to this car. Riveted'to the front wall of the casing, in proper position as illustrated in Fig. 3, are the catch books 51, 51 between which the hopper is disposed and into which the catch levers 49, 49 engage. The engagement of the other end of the catch lever with the oblique under side of the hopper, as illustrated at 51, provides for the positive support of the hopper and the pivotal mounting of the catc 1 lever provides for the convenient removal of the hopper from the machine as an entirety. The desirability of such an arrangement. has already been pointed out but I shall refer to it briefly again. The bottom of the hopper 46 is closed by a U- shaped cap 52 which is hinged to the back of the hopper bymeans of a spring hinge 53, as illustrated in Fig. 7, the bottom of the U- shaped piece extending through an opening 54 in the front wall of the casing 14. -The spring hinge tends to close the hopper, that is, tends to hold theU-shaped piece up against the bottom as illustrated in Fig. 2. A finger piece is carried on the under side of the cap 52 by means of a spring hinge. 5G. The finger piece is provided with an upward extension 57 on each side of the cap, this extension having a hook 58 adapted to catch on a pin 59 on the hopper, when the cap is in its closing position, as illustrated in Fig. 2. Pins (30, 60 on the 'sides of the U-shaped cap limit the movement of the extension 57, it being understood that the spring tends to hold the finger pieceand the projections in such position that the hooks will catch onto the pins 59. The tops of the projections are preferably chamfered shown so that the hooks may automatically restore themselves to the closing position. This arrangement is rovided since the weight of the money might otherwise overcome the tension of the spring hinge 53 and would drop from the hopper when the magazine in 'suhetitution of the hopper. This box, iudirated broadly by tilt rotor-mine t-haraeter til i. provided with the front door and with the top rover (l3. litter nall v. it is provided with partitiom it-t. il which are dirpo ed to corresp nd with the ehannela of the coin n'iagazine. The back of this lOth' box is provided with ran-hes on, G5 pivoted thereto atv 6G, 36, these Catt-hes being adapted to cooperate with the supporting hooks 51, 51, which have been deseril'ied, in an obvious manner. When the hopper has been removed and the lock box has len substituted therefor, in the manner shown in Fig. 13. the front. door (32 is closed and the top cover 3 is removed so that the eompartn'lenl; a will be below the dollar channel, the compartment is will be below the halt-dollar channel, the eompartutent a will be below the quarter ehanuel, the eonipartmel'it (I will be below the niche] channel, the eoninartnient e, f, (7 will he ht low the penny channels, and the compartment l2", 2' will be below the dime (-hanueha The lteys 18, 18 may then he operated to feed the eoius front the magazine to the lord; box and the de iressions may be noted and aggregated so that the money niav he vaunted in this way. before explainoh it one or THOI'Q of the channels should la come exhaueted before the other-a, and a rail can not he satisfied. the t'lenression can not be made and a lilerent selecting key lS chosen. lv hen the magazin empty the box may he l'oel Ad in any auitahle manner and retained to'a vault for sate keeping, Vll'a-n the magazine is to be tilled again the coins are removed "from the box and are placed in the respective channels, the hon per is repla 'ed and the machine is ready for operation.
