CASHIER S TICKET.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 26, 1921.
Application filed April 22, 1920. Serial No. 375,682.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Ennnsr V. BLooM- om's'r, a citizen of the United States, residing at Minneapolis, in the county of: Henncpin and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Oashiers Tickets; and I do hereby declare the 'following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which 1t appertains to make and use the same.
My present invention has for 1ts ob eet to provide an extremely simple and highly ellicient cashiers ticket for use in restaurants and the like, and to this end, it consists of the novel devices and combinations of devices hereinafter described and defined in the claim.
In the accompanying drawings, wh ch illustrate the invention, like characters 1ndicate like parts throughout the several views.
Referring to the drawings:
Figure 1. is a face view of a pad of the improved cashiers tickets;
Fig. 2 is an end elevation of the same; and
Fig. 3 is a face view of one'of the tickets detached. from the pad and having certain portions thereof detached to indicate the amount to be paid.
The numeral 4 indicates a pad of the improved. cashiers tickets 5, each of which has its upper end portion transversely ruled to afford top, intermediate and bottom spaces, and its bottom portion has a transverse line dividing the same into upper and lower spaces. T he top space, at the upper end of the ticket, may have printed thereon the name of the restaurant using the improved cashieifs ticket, and the intermediate space, at the top portion of the ticket, and the top space, at the lower portion thereof, each has a vertical line dividing the same into spaces 6 and 7. i In the spaces 6 are printed the numerals 1 indicating the waiters number, and in the spaces 7 are printed the numerals 001 indicating the number of the respective ticket. Directions or other printed matter may be indicated on the bottom lowing spaces, ticket.
Between the end portions of the ticket 5, the same is longitudinally and transversely perforated to divide the intermediate portion of the ticket into three vertical rows and seven horizontal rows of detachable squares 8. Certain of these squares 8 have printed therein, in denon'iinations increasing by five, the numerals live to ninety-live inclusive. These numerals are arranged to read from the left to the right and from the bottom of the ticket up. The next fob square to the right, after the numeral 95, has printed therein $1.? and the next following square to the right has printed therein Over $1.
In Fig. 3 is shown the top ticket 5 de tached. from the pad 4 with a portion of its lower end torn off on an irregular line, leaving 40 as the lowest numeral. The square having Over $1 printed thereon, is also detached, indicating that the customer is to pay to the cashier one dollar and forty cents. If the square having Over $1 was not detached, the ticket would indicate that both at the top and bottom of the l the customer should pay forty cents to the cashier.
The above described ticket, while having arranged. from five cents to a dollar and ninety-five cents, is very compact and can. be printed on relatively small pieces of 1 1 .VVhat I claim is:
A cashiers ticket having end spaces, longitudinal and transverse rows of perforations between said end spaces dividing the intermediate portion of the ticket into detachable squares, certain of which have printed thereon, in denominations increasing by five. the numerals live to ninety-five inclusive, the next following square after 95 having printed thereon $1, and the next following square after $1 having printed. thereon Over $1, said transverse rows of perforations being extended completely across the ticket.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
ERNEST V. BLOOMQUIST.
