, operation of aflixing the label upon the can.




To all whom it may concern: a

Be it known that I, EDWARD J. I-InR'In a citizen of the United States, residing at No. 116 Grant avenue, Greenville, in the county of Hudson, State of New Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in Labels, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in labels aflixed to cans and the objects of my improvements are; first, to provide a label, one end of which is permanently aflixed or attached to a can, upon which said end the name of the product may be indicated while the balance of the label, with the exception of a final small part which shall be adhesively affixed to the label, will be unattached to and unafiixed to and removable from the can, it being my purpose andintention to provide a label afiixed to a can that will permit the name of the indicated product to be permanently afiixed to and show on the can while at the same time the back and front of the remainder of the label may be used and utilized for purposes of description, advertisements, recipe or for such other purposes that may be needed or desired. I attain these objects by the label and can illustrated in the accompanying two sheets of drawings, in'which:

Figure 1, is a plan View of the face of the Fig. 2, shows the first step in the Fig. 3, shows the label in itscomplete place upon the can. Fig. 4, shows a can in elevation with the label attached thereto and with the part F and the adjacent portion of Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Commissioner of Patents, i V

comes into registration with the other line of perforations B, whereupon the strip a 5 F? running from G tothe end of .the label will extend beyond the registering lines of' perforations B and C? and will be disposed alongside of the strip l) The seller can use or utilize all the space on the face of the label extending from the perforated line B to the end of the label and all ofthe similar spaces on the back of, thelabel' running from the perforated line B tothe line C for purposes of 'description, advertisement, recipe or other- I wise, while at the same time the name of the indicated product will be permanently af-" fixed to the can this being accomplished I substantially in the manner hereinbefore set forth.- The buyer of the can of'the indicated product 1removes the unattached "or unaflixed part of the label by cutting down through the' registered perforated lines B and C as shown in Fig. 3. This operation of cutting allows the greater length of the label to be removed from the can while the strip D, upon which ,has

been placed the name of the indicated prod- Y i 7 not, as aforesaid, permanently remains upon the can.

I claim:

In. combination with acan, a label, said label being provided with perforated lines at each end whereby to form two end strips, one of-said end strips being adhesively secured upon the can and theother end strip being adhesively secured upon the said label alongside of the said first named strip with 1 said perforated lines in registry,said-label being otherwise unsecured.
