Application filed February 26, 1914.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that LPHILIP HANo, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Ticket-Cases, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a foldable case for carrying tickets-and it consists in providing the case with a pocket for-the insertion of a ticket. The front portion of the case has a sight opening communicating with the pocket whereby the face of the ticket can be exhibited without opening the case. The sight opening is covered by a pane of celluloid so that the ticket canbc easily read from a distance. The invention is especially designed for showing a railroad ticket when entering a train or to the gateman stationed at the entrance to the train terminal.
The novel features of the invention, are more fully described in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view looking toward the face of the case.= Fig. 2 is a similar view looking toward the rear portion of the case. Fig. 3 shows an inner face view of the case unfolded. Fig. 4 is a vertical central section of Fig. 1. I
In this drawing the letter a designates n. flexible case which when folded is in the form of a pocket book or bill fold. -At thefront portion of this case is located an openmg 1) formed in a leather frame a secured at d to the front portion of the case. A-
pocket e is located at the back of the opening and this pocket has mouths f f formed by-slitting the body ortion of the case as indicated in Fig. 3. transparent sheet of celluloid g is secured by means of the said stitches d between the frame 0 and the front portion of the case. This sheet of celluloid Specification of Letters Patent.

is thin and flexible and it completely covers the sight opening. A card or as preferred a railroad ticket h is inserted in the pocket. The inner portion of the mouth f of the slits are curved as shown in Fig. 3 so as to give easy insertion of the ticket. The printed portion or face of the ticket faces the celluloid pane so that it can be exhibited at any time without unfolding the case. The folded book or case can be prevented from being accidentally opened by means of fastening devices 2' suchas stud and socket snap devices carried by the rear flaps of the book. The inner portion of the case a has a pocket j serving as a receptacle for carrying tickets or cards. The case is constructed of leather and when folded as shown is almost flat so that it will take up very little room in the pocket of a person. The book can also be employed to carry bills between the folds .in connection with the tickets.
