` INVENTQR @Ze eelvanaf.

marian entras maar ortica.,



Application filed December 13, 1916.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, OLE S. LEELAND, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pierre, in the county of Hughes and State of South Dakota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combination Autograph, Portrait, and Calendar Mounts, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a combination autograph, portrait, and calendar mount and the primary object of the invention is to provide a card-board mount adapted to hold a photograph in the usual manner and provided with means for mounting a calendar and a card for inscribing thereon the signature of the person whose portrait is displayed upon the mount.

The invention further aims to provide a novel manner of attaching a folder to a photograph mount, the folder being constructed to secure a calendar and a name card so that either the name card or the calendar may be exhibited when desired.

The above and additional objects are accomplishedby such means as are illustrated in the preferred embodiment and in the accompanying drawings, wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, in which;

Figure l is a front elevation `of thecompleted device.

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary elevation showing the calendar card and signature card partially mounted in place.

Fig. 3 is a similar view showing the cards removed.

Fig. et is a fragmentary vertical section through the folder attached to the mount.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the folder.

Referring to the drawing, wherein is illustrated the preferred form of my invention, and in which like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the mount comprises the baseboard l upon which the cover-board 2 is mounted in the usual manner. The portrait is inserted between the base-board and the cover 2, the latter being provided with an opening through which the portrait may be seen.

A folder 3 is mounted on thelower portion of the cover 2 and this folder is constructed from a sheet of heavy paper which is provided with a cut-out portion 4 at one end adapted to be folded on the line 5 for forming a flap. One end edge of the strip Specification of Letters Patent.

is folded to provide an attaching flap or tab 6 upon which is spread an adhesive whereby the edge at the opposite end of the strip may be attached to the tab 6 when the strip is folded as shown by Figs. l and 5 of the drawing. Vhen the strip is thus folded and pasted together, it forms a casing having a front side in which the flap is provided and a rear side 7 which must be attached to the front surface of the cover 2. The side 7 is provided with two longitudinal slits connected by a transverse slit thereby providing two attaching flanges 8 when the material embraced by the slits is bent outwardly from the rear Of the side 7. Two transverse slits 9 are provided in the cover 2 and the flanges 8 are extended therethrough as shown by Fig. 4 of the drawing. The casing is thereby held snugly in place and may be easily attached and detached. A card 10, having the months of the year printed thereon together with any other data, may be slid into the casing through the open ends thereof. A photograph card ll, containing the signature of the person whose portrait is being displayed may also be arranged in the casing and theusual custom of defacing a photograph or portrait by inscribing ones signature directly upon the mount is thereby avoided while the calendar will serve as a reminder of the date or time at which the photograph is presented.

From the foregoing it will be observed that a very simple and durable combination autograph, portrait, and calendar mount has been provided, the details of which embody the preferred form. I desire it to be understood however, that slight changes in the minor details of construction may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the claims hereunto appended.

I claim:

l. A mount of the character described comprising a base board and a cover board, a folder including a strip of material folded to provide a casing open at both ends, a flap for the front of the casing, the latter being provided with a calendar card and a name card adapted to be thrust inwardly of the casing from either end thereof, and attaching lianges on the rear of the casing and engageable with the cover board for supporting the said folder.

2. A mount of the character described comprising a base board and a cover board, a folder including a strip` of material folded to provide a easing open at both ends, a flap for the front of the casing, the latter being provided with a calendar Card and a name Card adapted tot be thrust inwardly of the casing from either end thereof, and attaeliing langes on the rear of theV casing and engageable with the cover board for sup-y porting the said folder, the said folder llaving a longitudinal and two transverse slits,

the ends of the longitudinal slit Communicating with the transverse slit for forming the said flanges and adapted for engagement with the said cover board.

In testimony whereof I afiX my signature in presen/Geef two Witnesses.
