Specification of Letters Eatent.

Patented Apr, 16, 1918.

eyplieecion filed July 23, 3917. Serial Ho. 132,156..

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, JOHN A. MILLEA, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at the city of Rensseluer, in the county of llensselaer and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Devices for Stamping Names or Numbers, of which the following is a specification. 7

My invention relates to devices for sia'mping names or numbers, and the object oigmy invention isto provide an ink container, rubber stamp and. inking puci which, when out of use, may be so arranged as to be espeble of being carried in a pocket wiihout the ink from the die or pad coming in contact with the pocket; together with such other elements and combinations as are hereinafter more particularly set forth.

I accompiish these objects as illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure l is a perspective view of my ink container and stamp.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the pad and. cover for the stamp.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the parts shown in Figs. 1 and 2 when placed together.

Similar letters refer to similar parts throughout the severe views.

For the purpose oi? holding a rubber stamp, 1%., and a bottle or inlc container, G, 1 bend a piece of thin znebnl so as to form a flattened portion, stamp, A, is attached, turning the metal up along one edge at C to form a flange, as shown in Fig, l. I bend the metal upwardly away from the flattened portion, B, forming e retreating upwardly projecting poriion, D, and then 1 curve she {piste outwardly, benciing ii; upon itself forming a, circular portion, L. I then bend .the piste down weirdly and outwerdl foriziing portion, F, bhe lower edge of W ich engages with the flange, G. into the Opiling fffilllfid by the curved portion, E, 1 insert. the ink container or bottle G, which is preferably closed by means 01 a threaded cap I For the purpose of inking the rubber stamp, A, I provide on inking pad, 3, which is secured in the inefisl piste, K, a flange,

B, to which the rubber 9 projecting around the edges of the @late forming a recess for the pad. In order to make :1 cover for the rubber stamp and means for locking the pad containing memher with the stamp containing member, I bend the metal plate, K, at an angle to the plate, K, forming a flange, L, and then bend the plate upon itself extending in a. direction toward the face of the pad plate a short clistance, and then curve the plateupwardly and bend it upon itself forming a, lip, K then bend it at substantially right angles at N, extending beneath ihe lip, s flattened portion, 0, and extending a; 'sufiicient distance to form a cover for the porcion, B, containing the stamp, A then bend. it upwardly und'eurve it inwardly to form an overhanging lip, P.

As this arranged, the ink container and rubber stamp may be pieced and held together, when out of use, with both the stamp and; pad protected. This is done by inserting the ink conminer into connection with the pad plate by directing the flange, C, into the recess, is, and the lower curved edge of the side, D, under the lip, P, then slipping the two parts together from end to end.

Where I refer to rubber stamp herein,

material as well. I do not limit myself to trated and dewribecl.

What 1 claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A. stamp; 51 plate to which the stamp is attached; said plate bonito form a longitudinal opening parallel to the axis of the stump, adapted to receive and hold an ink bottle; a cover for said stomp, comprising a casing provided with a, purl; and project forming I,

I mean to include those made of any other ing lips on said casing adopted to engage the plate carrying the stamp, whereby both the pad and stomp may of use.

in testimony whereof I have ailixe my signocure in {he presence of two witnesses; JOHN A. MILLEA. Witnesses: I FREDERICK W. CAMERON,
