Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb. d, ilflilt.

Application filed Julie 29, 1916. Serial no. 06,560.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, MAURICE H. COHEN, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Label-Holding Cap or Cover of a Can, Jar, or other Body, of which the following is a specification.

My invention consists of a cap or cover of a can, jar, etc., constructed of suitable material such as metal, to hold a label thereon in a simple and inexpensive manner so that it will retain its position without liability to crimp or shift.

It consists also of the formation of the inner upper'edge of the device, whereby the hand will not be cut by the same, and the label is not liable to be abraded or cut through. v

The invention is satisfactorily illustrated in the accompanying drawing, but the important instrumentalities thereof may be varied, and so it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the specific details shown and described. 4

Figure 1 represents a perspective view of alabel holding cap or cover embodying my invention.

Fig. 2 represents a vertical section of the same in perspective, including also the body of the can, jar, etc.

Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the figures.

the upper end of the side wall 2 of the top.

The upper end of the cap or cover is closed by the disk 8 of metal or other suitable material, its peripheral portion entering the channel of the rim 3 and being seated on the top of the side wall 2. On said disk is a label 9 of paper, card-board or other desired material, its peripheral portion entering the channel of the rim 3 and I claim as new and desire to .being engaged by the inner face of theflange 4, leaving the main portion of the label exposed to view.

Attention is directed to the fact thatithe beads 6 and 7 are produced by swaging the placing the raw edge of said terminal under the main portion of said flange, whereby the hand will not contact with and be cut by the same,.nor will the label be abraded and out by said raw edge, as said rounded edge 5 presents a smooth bend on said inner terminal of the flange.

. Having thus described my invention what secure by Letters Patent, is v 1. A cap or cover of a can, jar, or like body, composedof integral members comprising a side wall, an outwardly channeled rim on the upper end of said side wall, a flange inturned from the inner terminal of said rim, said flange leaving a central opening in the cap, the opposite terminal walls of said rim being disposed to clamp opposite sides of a label with its central portion appearing at said opening. 7

2. A cap or cover of a can, jar, or like body, composed of integral members compnsmg a side wall, an outwardly channeled rim on the upper end '01": said side wall, a flange inturned from the inner terminal of said rim, said flange leaving a central opening in said cap and oppositely extended beads at the junctions of said rim, side, and flange respectively. a

3. A cap or cover of a can, jar, or like body, composed of integral members comprising'a side wall, an outwardly channeled rim on the upper end of said side wall, a flange inturned from the inner terminal of said rim, a disk-like member seated on the top of said side wall, and a label imposed on said member, the peripheral portions of said label and member being adapted to enter said channeled rim, and opposed means at or about the inner terminals of the wall of said rim adapted to clamp directly between them said member and label about the peripheral portions thereof, said mem ber resting uponrgi the lowermost of said means. I

A cap or cover ofa can, jar, or like body, composed of. integral members comprising a side wall, an outwardly channeled rim on the upper end of said side Wall, and a flange inturned from the inner terminal of said rim, said flangeleaving a central opening in said cap, the terminal portion of said flange being doubled on itself forming a rounded edge of said portion, said cap being formed with oppositely extended beads at the inner sides of said rim.

5. A cap or cover of a can, jar, or like body, comprising in a single integral element a depending side wall, an outwardly channeled rim on the upper end of said side wall and a flange inturned from the inner terminal of said rim and leaving a central opening in said cap, said rim being formed with oppositely disposed beads at its junc tion w th saidside wall and flange to support and clamp a label therebetween.
