BADGE Filed' Feb. 24, 192e 7gg-#Y ifo Patented Apr. 26, 1927.




Application filed February 24, 1926. Serial No. 90,256.

This invention relates to improvements in badges as a new article of manufacture. preferably constructed of celluloid, or of any other suitable material for the purpose at hand and has particular reference to badges used at public conventions or gatherings so adapted to introduce the members to each other without the formality7 of an introduction.

The object of the invention is to construct a badge which may be pinned to the lapel of a coat or outer garment, which badge shall bear permanently the name of the convention or gathering, and also the name of the person wearing the badge. To that end this invention consists in the several new and novel features of construction hereinafter set forth in the claim, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part thereof in which:

Figure l shows the badge as it appears on the wearer John Doe, for illustration, and beneath it the name of the convention.

Figure 2 is a reverse view thereof showing one means for attaching the badge to a garment.

Figure 3 is a vertical section on line ac-r, Figure l.

Figure at is a cross section on line g/-3/, Figure l.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.

cris a strip of celluloid or it may be of any other material which may be manipulated, and suitable for the purpose in hand, and having one end folded over as at b shown in Fig. i to form a depending blank name-plate -0- on which the person may write his name as shown.

The face of the body of the strip of celluloid may have permanently printed upon it the naine of the convention. At one end of the badge and between it and the name plate -0- is secured means as a pin dfor securing the body to the garment of the wearer in which position it is concealed.

A safety pin has been suggested as a means of thus securing the badge, but it will be readily understood that any other means may be employed suitable to accom plish this object and it also may bellocated in some other place than indicated, altho taste would indicate that locating it between the main plate and the body of the badge would be preferable.

As stated above, it is preferable to use celluloid f'or the reason that it can be polished on one side, the reverse side being left with a matt surface that can be written upon, and which permits of erasure, but when the part -c is folded over, it brings into View the matt side of the celluloid, and this matt finish or absence of finish furnishes a background on which one may readily write either with a pencil or with ink, the namefor it will be evident that if an attempt was made to write on a polished surface with a pencil, it would immediately rub off and with ink, it would blur or run.

Having described my invention, what I claim is:

As a new article of manufacture, a badge comprising a strip of celluloid polished on;l

one of its faces folded over near one end to form a name alate, the surface of said name plate exposed to view having a matt. or slightly roughened surface, andA means for securing the badge in place.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 11th day of February, 1926.
