ILLIAM 1a., BAKER, on YORK; I\T..- Y.

nEvIcE Fen aaccea ae sates awesomeness, ET-cl Application area Februar 21; 1925i- Seria11v'oi-1-d35'3-u vices often known as vending devices wherein means are provided for indicating or reoording therespective sales of goods or subscriptions to a particular charitable fund orother object of charitable contributions.

The object' of my invention is to provide a device of the kind above referred towhich shall not only be simple and inexpensive to manufacture but which will have otherattractive and useful features not heretofore included in devices of this character.

Said improved features will be hereinafter pointed out in the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing forming a part thereof, in which- Fig. l is a view of my improved recording device as it appears on its upper surface after some of the removable recording elements have been removed;

Fig. 2 is a view of one of the removable elements; and

Fig. 3 is a view showing the reverse side of one of said removable elements.

Referring to Fig. 1 of the drawings the numeral 1 indicates a body-portion prefera'bly composed of two layers 01' sheets 2 and 3 ofcardboard or similar more or less stiff sheet material. The lower sheet 3 is provided with the representation of any charitable or other object to which payments are made on funds subscribed, as indicated by the numeral 4. such as a hospital or other charitable institution. The upper layer or sheet is cut or partly cut or perforated to form removable or frangible pieces 5 which may be of any preferred form, according to the object for which the subscriptions or payments are intended. As an example, I have illustrated rectangular oblong pieces 5 corresponding in shape to that of bricks used for building purposes. Thepieces 5 are preferably held in position by portions of the up per layer 2 of the body portion 1. in the form of strips or bars 6 which retain the rectangular pieces 5 in positionwith'narrow. spaces between thempun'tilremoved or severed therefrom. Said spacesallow the finger nail or some small'instruinent to be inserted for removing the pieces 5'. The strips 6 may alsobe removed when the rectangular pieces or,

bricks 5' have been completely detached therefrom, thereby making the cut or picture beneath'mor'e fully visible.

The rectangular pieces 5 may have inscribed-or printed thereon suitable attrac t-ive words or legends 'suchas the given namesof women which may serve to attract; the attention of'a prospective subscriber or purchaser-tea brick or pieoe which particularly suits his or her choice or fancy;

The reverse side of the pieces 5 are preferably provided with a number or other inscription which is normally concealed but when the pieces 5 are detached may be used for various purposes, such as to indicate the amount of money to be given or subscribed by the individual interested in the object ofthe funds. The layers or sheets 2 and 3 may, be attached to one another by any suitable or preferred means, such as by cementing or pasting their margins or portions thereof, together. V

Other modifications of form and inscriptions will occur to those skilled in the art of salesmanship and the collecting of funds, and I do not wish to be understood as being limited to the details of form and arrangement of parts set forth for various changes may be made therein, without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention as set forth in the following claims. What I claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is: I 1.. In a device of the kind described, a body portion comprising layers of sheet material superposed on each other, the upper. layer being partially cut into removable pieces fixed in position to prevent inspection of the inside of each and adapted to be released to permit inspection, said removable pieces being adapted to uncover a lower' layer when removed and having inscribed or printed on their outer surfaces suitable attractive legends and on their inner surfaces, characters distinguishing them from each other, said lower layer being provided with reference to or representation of an object to which the device relates.

2. In a device of the kind described, a

III-J body portion comprising layers of sheet material superposed on each other, the upper layer being partially cut into removable pieces havingspaces between them fixed in position to prevent inspection of the inside of each and adapted to be released to permit inspection, said removable pieces adapted to uncover a lower layer when removed and having inscribed on their outer surfaces suitable attractive legends and on their inner surfaces, characters distinguishing them from each other, said lower layer being provided with a reference to or representation of an objectto which the device relates.

3. In a device of the kind described, a body portion comprising layers of sheet material superposed upon each other, the upper layer being partially cut into rectangular removable pieces having narrow spaces between them on two sides but attached to strips on the other two sides or ends and adapted to be torn from said strips to uncover a lower layer when removed, said removable pieces hav-ing inscribed on their outer surfaces. suitable attractive legends and on their inner surfaces, characters distinguishing them from each other, said lower layer being provided With a reference to or representation of an object to which the device relates.

4. In a device of the kind described, a layer of sheet material having a picture or inscription thereon, an upper layer superposed thereon comprising a series of parallel strips, a series of rectangular pieces supported at either end between said strips and having inscribed a suitable attractive legend on their outer surfaces, and on their inner surfaces characters distinguishing them from each other, said strips and pieces each covering a particular part or fraction of'the picture underneath, said pieces being removable from said strips and said strips being removable from the lower layer so that upon removal of both pieces and strips, the picture as a whole becomes visible.

Signed at New York, N. Y., this th day of February, 1925.
