Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Dec. 10, 1918.

Application filed October 29, 1917. Serial No, 198,917.

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, WILLIAM D. HEER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in CoinWrapping Machines, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to coin wrapping machines, and has among its more important objects to provide a device in'which a number of coins can be held in a holder preparatory to being wrapped; to produce a construction in which the coins can be packaged in a rapid manner; to provide a construction which holds a stack or row of coins so that they may be packaged without the danger of any of the coins becoming displaced from the row; to produce a device that holds the stack of coins in proper position upon the paper wrapper so that the coins may be easily packaged; to provide a mechanism which is adjustablefor various diameters of coins; to rovide a device that can be adjusted for di erent lengths of coin stacks due to the varying width of different coins; to provide a simple adjustmg mechanism for the above adjustments; to produce a compact device, simple in construction, strong in its various parts, and one that can be manufactured at a minimum cost, and in general to provide a superior and improved device of the character described.

The invention consists of the above matters and others hereinafter described and more particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a plan v1ew.

Fig. 2 is a section on l1ne 22 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a central longitudinal section.

Fig. 4 is a section on line 1-4 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 5 is a detail of the paper guide, and

Fig. 6 is a view of the pin ad ustment indicator.

Referring to the drawings 11 is a base or frame of box-like construction the top of which is at an incline due to the fact that' the left hand end of the device, as looked at in Fig. 3 is shorter than the other end. This base 11 has a partition 12 parallel with the table upon which the device is adapted to stand. A roller supporting bracket 13 is secured at one end to the partition 12 by a screw 14 and at the other end to the one bent portion 23 The extension 23 is .29. The other end on one end, and

secured in the vertical front wall of the frame. The top plate 15 of the base 11 is provided with'a narrow elongated slot 21.

Upon the upper rear portion of the frame 11 is mounted a casing '22 substantially square in plan. This casing has its lower side portions bent at right angles furnishing two extension pieces 23. and 25, the ex tension piece-25 having a bent end portion 25 adapted to enter a slot 25 in the top 15 of the frame 11, the other piece 23 has projecting into slot 23.

casing to slide upon this screw and be located and held in anydesired position on the frame 15. Projecting forwardly from the front edge of the extension piece 23 is a paper holding finger 27 The casing. may be swung upon the pivot 25 '-25 by loosen in the screw 26.

ithin the casing is mounted what is termed the pin adjusting mechanism, this consists of a bracket 28 secured at one end to the top of the casing by means of screws of this bracket projects downwardly and rearwardly (aswiewed in Fig. 3) and on the lower end thereof is slidably mounted a block 29, having rack teeth 31. A bracket 32 is, rigidly secured in the block 29 and has on its lower end a pin or plug 33 Mounted transversely of the easng 22 1s a pin '34 having a thumb nut 35 has its other end projecting into the slde of the casing 22. Midway between the ends. on this pin is fixed a pinion 36 designed to mesh with the rack teeth 31. A paper guide 37, shown separately in Fig. 5 has a slot 38 which is designed to surround the pin 34. The guide is held on pin 34 by frictional fit between the wall of the casing and the enlarged part 39 of the pin 34. The lower end 41 of the paper guide projects downward through the opening 21 in the top plate the pin 33. The sheet of paper 40 is held down against the rollers 18 and 19 by the and also by finprovided with a slot 24 15 and lies under and, as previously stated, can be secured in any desired position on the frame by means of a screw 26. A guide scale as is provided so as to indicate the position to secure the casing when the proper number of any given denomination of coin is to be wrapped. The paper Wrapper, which is of standard size and markings for each denomination of coin, is placed on the top plate with one side flush with the front wall of the casing 22. The slide case 22 and paper wrapper 40 are now moved to the proper position, such position being determined by the markings 43. This scale is so graduated that when the case 22 is adjusted-for say the standard package of nickels as shown in Fig. 3 the outer end of the stack lies flush with the forward end of the frame 11. In conjunction with this adjustment is another adjustment, the urpose of which is to move the pin 33 so t let it will be in the center of the coin of whatever denomination is to be packaged. For this purpose an indicator scale 45 shown separately in Fig. 6 is provided. If the relative thickness and diameter of coins remained the same for the various denominations only one adjustment would be necessary but thepin adjustment which moves the pin up and down for different diameters of coins also moves forward and backward at the same time. Both these movements are uniform, hence the slide case adjustment becomes necessary.

\Vhen a stack of nickels (20) is to be wrapped .the standard nickel wrapper is selected and placed. in the device with one edge adjacent the casing 22. .Then the pin adjustment and casing adjustment are made fornickels. The pin adjustment places the center of the pin in the center of the stack of nickels. If the pin were too high or too low the stack of nickels might slip out of place because of the incline of the top plate.

his incline causes the coin stack to remaln' in contact with the pin. The pin adjustment also leaves the proper space between either end of the stack and the edge of the paper. The purpose of this is to have the printing on the wrapper come in the proper place on the package when Wrapped and also to have a suflicient margin of paper left to properly cover the end of the package when wrapped.

- erator.

The roll of coins'lies on the rollers'18 and 19 with the lower end thereof abutting the pin 33. The paper 40 as shown in Fig. 2 is held so that the left hand end can be grasped. The paper is then turned up and over the top of the stack of coins, the stack of coins is now rolled around on the rollers and the paper gradually pulled up until the coins arecompletely wrapped. The ends of the paper are now turned in' and pressed down.

While I have shown and described details of construction to more readily explain my device I do not wish to be limited to such details, but the scope of the invention should be determined by the claims.

I claim:

1. In a coin wrapping device, a main frame, a casing on said frame, a pin in said casing, and a single mechanism for moving said pin vertically and-horizontally.

2. In a device for packaging coins, a frame, coin supporting rollers journaled in said frame, a longitudinally adjustable sliding guide case mounted upon said frame,

-means for securing said case in various positions on said frame, a coin positioning pin mounted in guidecase and above the rollers, a gear and rack device within the guide case for causing a compound adjustment of said pin, and a dial for determining the amount of movement of said pin, such moveirerlitbeing determined by markings on said 1a -3. In a coin packaging device, a main frame, an adjustable casing thereon, a movable pin adapted to lie adjacent a stack of coins to be wrapped, and means for moving said pin to and from said stack of coins and transversely of the end of said stack by one movement.
