ANDRE HUTT NEWTON, OF BEAUMONT, TEXAS.
T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ANDRE HUTT NEWTON, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Beaumont, in the county of Jeiierson and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Price- Tag Holders, of which the following is a specification.
My invention is an improvement in price tag holders, and has for its object to provide a device of the character specified, adapted for connection with the hangers of garments, for carrying a tag with data thereon concerning the garment carried by the hanger, and which may be easily attached to the hanger.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a front view of a clothes hanger having the improved holder,
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the holder detached.
The present embodiment of the invention is shown in connection with a clothes hanger of usual construction, consisting of the body 1 and. the suspending hook 2 connected with the body, and the improved tag holder is designed to be connected to the body near the hook.
The improved holder comprises a plate 3 of suitable size, having at one end a curved extension 4L, and at the other a pair of arms 5 which extend laterally from the plate in the same direction, and. in parallel relation, and each arm is provided at its free end with an inwardly extending pointed spur or lug 6.
Between the extension 4 and the arms 5 the plate has a pair of inwardly extending overlying flanges 7, which form guides for receiving the side edges of the tag indicated at S. The extension 4 has an opening 9, and the holder is arranged on the body oi? the hanger in the manner shown in Fig. l.
Specification oi Letters Patent. Patented Aug, 30, 1921 Application filed October 7, 1920.

Preferably the hanger is curved to fit the curve of the top of the hanger so that it fits smoothly thereon, and the data on the price tag 8 will be clearly displayed above the neck of the garment which is supported by the hanger. When another garment is placed on the'hanger the price tag may be removed and another inserted. This tag may carry any desired data, as for instance the size of the garment, the lot number, and the price.
