The principal object of this invention is to construct an improved receptacle for carrying money, which shall be provided with distinct receptacles for the different denominations of specie now in common use and to so construct the device that 1t' may be readily applied to any standard portable The above and additional objects are accomplished by such means as are illustrated in their preferred embodiment in the accompanying drawings, described in the following specification and then more particularly pointed out in the claims which are appended hereto and form a part of this appli cation.
'VVith reference to the drawings, wherein, I have illustrated the preferred embodiment of my invention as it is reduced to practice, and throughout the several views of which, similar reference numerals designate corresponding parts: Figure 1 is a perspective view of an ordinary hand bag equipped with my coin holder. Fig. 2 is a lower edge elevation. Fig. 3 is a section on the line 33 of Fig. 2.
Proceeding now to the description of the drawings, the numeral 1 designates a hand bag, inside and along the top edge of which is arranged my coin holder indicated as an entirety by the numeral 2.
The member 2 consists primarily in the base plate 3, spring mounted coin plate 4 and a retaining plate 5. The base plate 3 is formed of sheet metal of any suitable kind and is equipped with the integral tubul'ar casings 5, the upper front surfaces of which are provided with recesses 6 for a purpose to be hereinafter described. As
illustrated in Fig. 1, the casings may be graduated in size to accommodate coins of.
different denominations or they may be, of
course, made in one size only. The base,

perforations, 6 along its upper edge through which are projected rivets or any other-suitable fastening n eans. The coi l plates 4areormed of sheet me al and a e ea h pr i ed with the annularflange 7, the diameter f these flanges being such as to permit slid:
ing-movement of the plate 4 withinthe cas-j mg 5. A. spring 8 ,is arranged within the casing, the we end of thi spr ng be r n against the bottom of the casing 5 and the other endbe r ng again t he: p ate Point a jacent t e owernor iqn h eof for a purpose to behereinafterdisclosed.
The re ain g plate 5 is u away he m the openings9 which are slightly smaller in diameter than the diameter of the coin plate 4. It will be seen that by placing a coin'in the recess 6 and pressing the coin against the lower portion of the plate 4, that this plate will bev pushed inwardly against the tension of'the spring 8 and that when the coin is pushed upwardly along the base of the plate 4 and behind the edge of the opening 9,;that upon removing the pressure from the coin,the spring will act to force the plate 4 into engagement with,
the coin, thereby holding it in frictional engagement'with the edges of the opening, 9. I desire to direct particular attention to the fact that the spring 8 bears against the plate 4 at the lower portion thereof, thus producing the greatest frictional engage ment between the coin and the retaining plate at the retaining lips 10, which latter bending the free edges of the portions of the retaining plate between theopenings 9 inopposite directions. This method .of attaching the spring to. the plate 4 will, of
course, hold the coins more securely than if placed in the center of the plate.
It will, of course, be understood that the above description and accompanying drawings comprehend only the general and preferred embodiment of my invention and that various minor changes in details. of construction, proportion and arrangement of parts may be made within the scope of the appended claims and without sacrificing the advantages of my invention. What is claimed is:
1. The combination with a receptacle of a coin holder including a base plate and a retaining plate mounted thereon, said base plate being provided with a' plurality of are incidentally provided by splitting and sockets, the retaining plate being provided on its free longitudinal edge with a plurality of openings arranged in registration with the sockets, retaining lips formed on the re-.
2. The combination with a portable receptacle,,of an elongated base plate mounted along the inner upper edge of the receptacle, a plurality of uniformly spaced coin receiving tubular casings formed by depressing the base plate adjacent the free longitudinal edge thereof, the upper edges of the casings being in alinement with the upper surface of the base plate, the upper front surface of each of the casings being provided with a recess for facilitating the insertion and extraction of coins from the casing, a retaining plate rigidly mounted on the base plate provided with a plurality of uniformly spaced -openings therein arranged in registration with the casings, said openings communicating with the free longitudinal edges of the retaining plate and being slightly less in diameter than the diameter of the recesses for preventing accidental displacement of a coin, retaining lips formed on the portions of the retaining plate between the openings, tubular members having depending annular fianges thereon slidably mounted in said casings, and coil springs disposed in said casings, the respective ends of said springs bearing against the lower part of the bottoms of the casings and the lower part of the under surface of said tubular members for increasing frictional engagement betweenthe tubular members and the lips with the coins for preventing the coins from falling into the receptacle.
