' a lication filedAugust "1, 1921. SerialNo. 488,960.

To all whom z'tmay concern." p

Be-it known that I RAY P. RILEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Coshocton, in the county of Coshocton and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvementsin Ticket Holders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in holders for tickets and the like and has for its object toprovide a holder for a ticket, or label, or card of reference, or I 7 ing the tickets, and the like, from the holder,

registration card, or a plurality of them, in such a manner as to permitready inspection, and at the same tim e,-hold the ticket in place when not desired for use or inspection.

A further object of my invention is to have the ticket, etc. in its holder, out of the dust, and keep it cleanand-fresh for examination and in a sanitary condition.

A further object of myinvention is to provide a holder of the character described which shall be very simple in construction, inexpensive to manufacture and durable in use.

My preferred form of holder consists of two parts, a body part and a back part,- only two pieces. The body part has its side edges and one end curved or bent upon itself to form grooves to receive the edges and one end of the back, the edges and one end of the back sliding into the groove formed by the curved or bent edges of the sides and one end of the body.

The back is in one piece and has aportion thereof cut or stamped out to form a tongue which is. depressed at its free end in order to exert a constant pressure on a ticket or like device when placed in the holder. It will be understood that, when the back is made, the free end of the tongue is formed to normally stand out of alignment with the general surface of the back, whereby the end of the tongue will have frictional eiigagement with the ticket, or tickets, that may be placed in the holder inthe space that exists between the back and front of the holder by the attachment of the edges of the back to the inwardly bent or curved edges of the front.

The entire holder can be made, from celluloid, or othersuitable. material which is impervious to moisture, but in viewof its lightness,cheapness, strength andother advantages, I prefer to use celluloid.

Theuses to which my holder may be put are very numerous. There is nothing in the construction ofmy holder to get out of order-simply the two pieces, without any rivets or springs, the only spring being in the tongue, which is due to the inherent spring of the material of which the holder is made.

For conveniencein inserting and remov- I'provide a finger recess in one end of the body, or in one end of the back or in both the body and the back, as shown in the accompanying drawing. I i

There is sufiicient adherence between the edges of the back and the flanges of the front to hold said parts in their lations and fixed positions.

In the accompanying drawings, illustrative of the preferred embodiment of my inventionz- I I I Fig. 1 shows a front view of a holder emproper rebodying my invention.

g. 2, a reversed, orrear, view. Fig. 3 shows a longitudinal section on the line .ww of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 shows a transverse section on the line yg of Fig. 2.

, Fig. 5 illustrates the form of blank from which the front part of the holder is made, the dotted lines showing the lines when the blank is bent to form one end andthe sides of the holder. I

Fig. 6 illustrates the form of blank from which the rear or back part of the holder is formed.

Referring to Fig. 5, the blank comprises the face or front portion 2, which is bent on the dotted lines 3 and 4:, to form the sides 5 and 6 and the end 7, and the dotted lines 8 and 9 show where the blank is curved, or bent, to form'the flanges at the sides, and the end. This blank has straight cuts 13 and 14, equal in length to the thickness of the holder, and inclined cuts, 15 and 16, which are preferably equal in length to the width of the flanges 19. The blank shown in Fig. 2 illustrates the width of the body of the holder in its completed form, as described, with its sides 18 and flanges 19,- which strengthen the holder at the point where the't'ront andback are joined and the tongue 20 is formed in the back by making a slit 21 in the back, by cutting out a portion. of the back to leave space for the l ree movement ol the tongue. This tongue is bent inwardly and of suliicient length so that its free end will press against a ticket, or tickets, that may have been inserted in the holder.

The space on the front or the holder can be used by an individual lirm, company or corporation for the display of symbols, characters, or for any printed matter, or to give desired information.

In compliance with the statute, I have shown and described preferred embodiment of my invention, the material used in the present case being celluloid, in View of the construction of the holder, its nuinerous possible uses, its durability, lightness and adantabilit to be readii n1ain- "ained in a sanitary condition; but i would have it understood that l reserve the rigid to use other material than celluloid and to change the form and proportion of the vl. A holder of the character described corn arisin a back art having edge walls D r V t: r, 7

flanges on, said edge Walls, a front part rigidly securedto said flanges and having a retaining tongue extending inwardly toward said back part.

2. A holder of the character described comprising a back part having edge walls, flanges on said edge walls, afront part rigidly secured to said flanges and having an integral, resilient retaining tongue extending inwardly toward said back part.

3. A holder of the character described, comprising a celluloid back havingw edge Walls, flanges on said edge Walls, a celluloid front part rigidly secured to said flanges within the same, and having an integral, resilient, punched out retaining tongue extending inwardly of said holder toward the back part thereof for yieldably retaining within said holder its contents.

In testimony whereoi 'I aliix my slgnature.
