Patented Jan. 27, 1925. I




Application filed May 10,

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, OSWALD B. ,CAnsoN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Brookl 11, county of Kings, and State of 6 New ork, have invented new and useful Improvements in Display Cards for Advertising Purposes, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, such as will enable others skilled in the art to 10 which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to display cards. more particularly to a display card and to means for removably holding articles on said 16 display card with integral display holding means su plemented by a detachable fast-- ener, ma e at small expense, that will removably hold in an attractive manner a variety of articles.

20 Referring to the drawings- Figure 1 is a front view of a display card made in accordance with the present invention, arranged in the present instance to hold a plurality of combs.

Figure 2 is a sectional view on the line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a back view of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a sectional view on the line 4-4: of Figure 1.

It) In the drawings 1 designates a suitable display card preferably made of card-board or thick paper, although the same can be made of metal or other suitable material.

In the present instance and in accordance II with the present invention, the display card 1 is out to rovide one or more sets of overlapping ta s, each set of tabs comprises a tongue tab 2 and a grooved tab 3, as shown in Fig. 1. In the present instance the M tongue tab 2 is maderelatively narrow, whereas the grooved tab 3 is made relative ly broad, the tabs being preferably made to overlap each other at their free ends for approximately half their length so that the same can be forced outward to permit for example the insertion of a comb 4.

In order to hold the comb in position the free end of the tongue tab 2 is provided with a slot 5 through which is inserted the pointed end of an ordinary metal fastener 1923. Serial No. 639,140.

6 which passes, in the present instance, between the teeth of the comb, the split end of the fastener being bent into engagement with the comb as clearly shown in Fig. 3.

The metal fastener 6 is provided with a relatively broad head and acts to overlap the free end of the tongue tab 2 so that it will engage the free end of the grooved tab 3 and hold it in position; when however the display card is made of relatively thick card-board a small headed metal fastener 7 is all that is required to hold the article in position. In orderlto remove articles from the display card it is a simple matter to remove the metal fastener.

In the present instance the grooved tab 3 is cut on either side for a. considerable distance so as to provide a long fiat base or bearing surface for the article to be held; this is important in the case of a comb as it prevents tipping which acts to bend the teeth and set them if the comb remains in that position for any long period of time.

From the above description it will be seen that a plurality of sets of tabs can easily be arranged on a displa card to display articles such as combs an that the same can be readily secured thereto by means of a simple detachable metal fastener in a cheap and eflicient manner.

While the invention has been described with particular reference to the details of construction the same is not to be considered as limited thereto as many changes can be made and still fall within the scope of the invention set forth in the following claims.

What I claim is 1. In a display card, a tab of convex contour cut therefrom; an oppositely extending tab struck from the card its free end being cut from the body of the first tab, the free ends of both tabs interengaging so that the first mentioned tab provides a shoulder for supporting the article to be displayed, the second tab providing means for detichably afiixing said article to the card.

2. In combination with a display card, a tab of convex contour cut therefrom; a second tab cut from the card its free end being cut from the body of said first tab specification in the presence of two suh and interenga ing therewith; fastsning scribing witnesses.

means carried y said second name tab adapted to overlap the first-named tab and OSWALD I 5 detachably aflixed to the article to be dis- Witnesses:
