To a-ZZ whom t may concern l Be it known that I, Pirrnnv F. FnrnsnN, a

5 citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of Hillsboro, inthe county ofl ling to provide' a cheap, inexpensive device into which coins can be readily placed and Marion and State of Kansas, have invented a new and Improved Coin Stacker, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description. Y

This invention relates to improvements inV coin stackers, an object of the invention bewhich will by gravity stack the coins and indicate the number or value of the stack.

A further object of the invention being to provide a coin stacker .which may be used for stacking coins of different sizes by the substitution of different inner tubes.

With these and other ,objects in View, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction andv combinations and arrangements of parts as will be more fullyn tube removed.

1 represents the upper iared entrance end of my improved stacker which is of general funnel shape, having a vertical cylindricalv coin receiving portion 2. communicating A with the central lowest portion ofthe llared upper endl. p Y p The end l is preferably of general oblong shapein plan, with rounded cornersV 3 and having tapering side walls 4 merging into a circular lower portion 5, which registers with and is x'ed to the tubular or cylindrical `portion 2.

The cylindrical portion, 2 has an open lowerrend. so that the device can be lifted` off the stackof coins, and'longitudinal serieso f perforations are provided inthe opposite sidesof the'cylindrical portion 2 through which the stack of coins can be observed and Y specifieatin of Lederwaren. Patented Feb.' 21, 19,22,` Application f11ec1`il'anuaryv 28, 192.0. Serial No. 354,578. i v v scales l"ir are provided atrthe sidesof the series of perforations which indicate the number or value of the stack of coins.

` 'In the modilication illustrated in Figures fland 5v a removable inner tube 8' is provided 1n the tube 2 andhas a beveled upper end 9 to guide the coins thereinto., A flange l0 is provided around the lower end of the inner tube 8l and a key 11 is located thereon to enter a keyway l2 in the end of tube 2 to'guide the Vperforations 13 of ythe inner tubeS intov reg# ister with the perforations of thetube 2.v l .f

In operation the coins are 'dropped into the stacker and collect in a pilein the tuj bular lower portion. thereof, when the stacker can beremoved leaving the stackv on a table vor other support.

By the provision of inner tubes different size. coinscan be stacked andof-course the device can be madeyo'f different sizes to p. accommodate any or `all coms.

Various slight changes might be made in' 'ko-f the general form ofthe parts described without departing'from my invention, and hence ,I do not limit myself'to the precise details set forth, but consider myself at liberty to make such slight changes and alterations as -I fairly fall. within the spirit andv scope of the appended claim.

I claim: i l

A stacker, comprising a'cylindrical portion, an inner tube therein having a dared upper end,` a flange around the lower end of the inner tube, a key yon said flange, said cylindrical portion having a key-way therein receiving the key, and said tube and cylindrical portion have registering perforations.y
