To all whom it mayoonaem: I
Be it known that I, Fnnnnnron CHARLES AsLIN, a subject of the King of Great Britain and Ireland, and resident of l/Voodford Green, countyof Essex, England, have ]Il vented a certain new and useful Improvement in Wallets or Cases for Dollar-Bills, Passports, or the like, of which the following is a specification. f
This invention relates to an improved Wal let or note case.
The wallet or note case according to the present invention is of oblongshape when open, but, when closed, is folded up into three equal parts or leaves if made for only carrying notes of two different values, or into four equal parts or leaves if made for carrying notes of three different values, as well as season tickets, passports and the like, the wallet or note case when folded up presenting a plain front and back.
The wallet or note case may be made of any suitable material, preferably leather, and the parts or leaves flexibly connected together in any suitable manner, preferably by making the material of which the wallet is composed to form the hinges.
The invention is illustrated by the accompanying sheets of drawings, in which z- Figures 1 and 2 are obverse and reverse views of a wallet or note case for carrying notes of two different values.
Figs. 3 and 4: are obverse and reverse views of a wallet or note case for carrying notes of three different values.
Fig. 5 is a section taken Fig. 3.
Figs. 6 and 7 are obverse and reverse views of a wallet or note case for carrying notes of two difl'erent values showing a modified arrangement of flaps and pockets.
on line 00, 3/ of In carrying out the invention with refer ence to Figs. 1 and 2, the central part or leaf on is provided with two pockets 5 and 0, one on each side of said central part a and oppositely disposed with relation to one an other. The side parts or leaves are each provided with a pair of lappets or flaps, the lappets or flaps f on the side part or leaf (Z being arranged in opposite relation to the lappets or flaps g on the side part or leaf 6, so that whichever way the wallet or case is opened there is a plain part ]L, a pocketed part and a part with lappets or flaps.
In use, one end of a note '11 is placed, say,

in the pocket I) of the central part or leaf a and the other end under the lappets or flaps f on the side part cl. Une end of another note 2' of different valueisthen placed in. the pocket 0 of [the central part or flap a and its other end underythe lappets or flaps g on the other side part or leaf 6 and the two side parts or leaves r! and c folded down on to the central part or leaf 0., closing the wallet or note case.
Referringnow to the arrangement shown in Figs. 3, 4, and 5, the wallet or note case consists offour parts or leaves, a, (1 (Z and e flexibly connected together in such manner as to open out straight and to fold up together flat, the outer faces h of the end parts or leaves cl and 6, when said wallet or note case is folded, showing plain.
l/Vhen. opened out, the case on one side showsFig. 3-the inner face of the end part or leaf 6 provided with a pocket j and the inner face of the other end part or leaf (Z with lappets or flaps 7, while the inner face of the part or leaf (6 adjoining the pocketed end part or leaf 6 is provided with side lappets or flaps 7c and the inner face of the part or leaf o adjoining the lappeted or flapped part or end leaf d is provided with a pocket m.
The reverse view-Fig. lof the case shows the two middle parts or leaves a, a each provided with a pocket a whose mouths ace one another, while the end parts or leaves (Z and 6 show plain surfaces it.
In use, one end of a note z' is placed in, say, the pocket j. of the end part or leaf e and the other. end under the lappets or flaps k on the middle part or leaf a. One end of a note 0 of another value is placed in the pocket m on the other middle part or leaf (1 and the other end of the note under the lappets or flaps f on the other and adjoining end part or leaf d.
The wallet or case is now reversed and the ends of a note of another value placed in the pockets a of the two middle parts or leaves a, of, or one end in the pocket a of the leaf a and the other end under the lappe s or flaps n if such lappets or flaps be employed on the other middle leaf 0.
If desired, the body of the wallet or note case may be arranged to form as shown in section Fig. 5a pocket 9', extendingas shown in dotted lines g*the length of said wallet or note case for the reception of notes or the like of greater length and size than can be placed in the beforementioned pockets or pockets and flaps.
Season tickets, passports and the like would be carried in any of the pockets, preferably the pockets a of the middle parts or leaves.
Instead of the flaps being in duplicate and arranged at right angles to the pockets, single flaps F may be elnployed as in Figs. 6 and 7arranged in parallel with and facing said pockets and in opposite relation to one another.
Having now described my invention, what I claim as new and desire .to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is 2- 1. A wallet or note case consisting of three equal leaves flexibly connected together, the central leaf being provided with two pockets, one on each side thereof and oppositely disposed With relation to one another, and each end leaf with a pair of flaps, the flaps on one end leaf being arranged in opposite relation to the flaps on the other end leaf.
2. A wallet or note case including a body having an intermediate section, and oppositely foldable end sections, said intermediate section having on opposite sides thereof reversely disposed pockets each opening to ward one of said foldable end sections, and said latter sections having flaps adapted to be folded inwardly over the inner faces thereof to cooperate with said pockets on the intermediate section.
In testimony whereof I have aiiixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
