LECENSE TAG :FOR MOTOR VEHCLES.
Application filed November 12, 1921.
T 0 all whom t may conce/mf:
Be it known that l, Bonne H. BnnnsoN, a citizen of the United States, resident of St. Paul, county of Ramsey, State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful lmprovements in License Tags for Motor Vehicles, of which the following is a specification. y
The object of my invention is to provide a tag made in such a way that the license number for both the rear and the front of the car, the certificate of registration, the State and county files and the owners receipt, and a blank for the sale and puichase certificate, may all be printed on one sheet and folded so that when the original certicate of registration is made out, duplicates thereof will appear on the State and county files and the owners receipt. Duplicates also will be made of the sale and purchase certificate when it becomes desirable to fill out the blanks for that purpose.
The invention consists generally in various constructions and combinations, all as hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the claims.
ln the accompanying drawings forming part of this specification.
Figure l is a view of the unfolded sheet, showing the license numbers for the front and rear and the blanks that will appear on one side 0f the sheet,
Figure 2 is a similar view of the back or rear side of the unfolded sheet, showing the duplicates of the certificate of registration for the State file and the owner-s receipt, and also showing on the reverse side a form of sales certificate, which also becomes application for a new number,
liipure 3 is a face view of the tag for the front of the car, showing the certificate of registration at one end of the tag,
Figure -l is a detail view of one end of the certificate of registration, showing the manner of placing the original license number thereon, the transfer number in case of sale of the car, and previous license numbers.
In the drawing, 2 represents the tag at one end of the sheet, designated for the license `number at the rear of the car, and 3 'is the section of the tag for the license vnumber at the front of the car. rlhese numbers will correspond and preceding the license number l provide figures indicating the arbitrary number of the county in the State in which the certificate of registration is issued.
Serial No. 514,615.
For instance, in this particular case, f 53 is used as the number ofacertain county in the State of Iowa. The license number is shown as 7239, with a small design separating the license number from the county number. Abo ve the license number appears the name of the State,ivith the year the certificate is issued, and following the figures indicating the year, I provide letters of the alphabet, which indicate the first figureof the license thereby economizing space on the tag. For in stance, in the illustration, theletterBis shown, thus indicating that the first figure of the license number is 2, the whole number being 27,239. lf the letter A is shown, then the number will be 17,239. If the letter C, the number would be 237,239, .and so onthrough the alphabet.
The section of the sheet for the official license tag is provided at one end with a blank space a to be filled in for the certificate of registration. In this space a description of the person to whom the license is issued is Written. This description includes the name, age, weight, of the person, color of hair and eyes, and other descriptive matter usually embodied in certificates of this kind. The original of this certificate becomes a permanent part of thelicense tag at the front of the machine, and being mounted in a suitable frame, is plainly visible and can be inspected by any one.
Adjoining this certificate of registration is a panel 5 folded along the transverse line G and having` a duplicate of the certificate of registration on its reverse side so that when the panels are folded, the duplicate ofthe registration certificate will be positioned to take a carbon impression or carbon of the original. The next panel )7 adjoii'iing the panel 5 and folded also on a transverse line 6 has a blank on its obverse face so that a carbon impression or copy of the original will be made `when the original is filled out, and adjoining' this panel 7 isan end panel S folded along a transverse line (3b having a blank for the sales certificate `and cn its reverse face a copy 8 of the original certificate of registration. This certificate is kept by the owner and `may be used as a means of identification or for establishing the ownership of the car.
By making out the sheet in this way one entry of the description in the original certificate will reproduce one for the file of the Secretary of State, another for the tile of of a car can be traced back through the difthe county, and a third for the owners receipt, and all of these certificates will, of course, correspond.
As shown in Figure 2, the reverse side of the sheet at one end of the front license tag is provided with a blank9 for a carbon copy of the certificate of registration for the State file. Adjoining this carbon copy, also on the reverse side of the sheet, is a .sales certificateA l0 on which a carbon is made from the original of the panel 5 on the face of the sheet. Adjoining this carbon copy of the sales certificate is a blank for a third copy 8 of the certificate of registration, which constitutes the owners receipt. On the other side of this owners receipt certificate is a third copy of the certificate of sale,
In making` out the blanks on the sheet, 3 carbons are made of the certificate of registration from the original, which forms a permanent part of the front license tag on the car. One carbon is filed with the Secretary of State, another with the county issuing the certificate, and a third is retained by the owner. In case of a sale of the car, two carbons of the certificate of sale are made from the original. When this work is completed all the sections properly filled out will be detached from the original certificate of registration, which, as stated, forms a peri manent part of the tag and the others being p carbons, must of course be identical. In this way a considerable saving is effected in the matter of filling out and filing blanks and exact copies or reproductions of the originals are insured, and provide complete records of transactions between the various departments.
In Figure 4 I have shown the preferred form of the certificate of registration, having little squares at the corners in one of which appears numerals corresponding to those on the license tags, also the transfer number and date. The other corner of the certificate has blanks for the previous license numbers. In this way the ownership ferent` owners and complete record of the sales transfers obtained. Corresponding numbers will, of course, appear in the carbon copies of the certificates of registration. The present license number would be printed on the blanks when they are prepared, but the other numbers and years of issue will be filled in by the county official when the new numbers, through sale or transfer, are issued. Perforations are provided in the sheet 'between the tags and cards, so that they may be easily separated for filing purposes. The sheet willl be folded along these perforated lines so that the blanks can be easilyfilled in on the typewriter and then the cards are separated and distributed to the different departments, the general purpose of the whole card being to prevent fraudulent duplication and the sale of a stolen car. lhe license number on the cards or tags will be the same throughout the sheet, in the one shown,fthe number indicating the arbitrary number of the county and the license number, and the records in the different departments will all correspond. By making this sheet in such form that carbon copies may be made of the original entries, it is evident that the chances of error are practically eliminated, each department will have a complete, accurate record of the license-card, and all transactions relating to the machine on which the card is used.
A Federal tax collected through State and county officials may be indicated on the certificate of registration, which will also provide a record of receipts of payments of the tax through such officials; thus National, State and county records may be'maintained through the medium of the original an duplicate certificates. f
