Application filed September 13, 1926. SerialNo. 135,160.
This invention relates to an improved coin receiving and containing purse, and it has more particular reference to a safety appliance forming a part of the purse and serving to prevent accidental displacement of coins.
Briefly, the purse comprises a bag having an especially designed neck joined thereto and adapted to be folded into'the same to provide the safety appliance for preventing displacement of the coin.
My principal aim is to generally improve upon structures of this class by providing one of comparative simplicity and durabllity characterized by case in construction, compactness and convenience, ready output, and
' variation of improved detail. a
Other features and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following description and drawings.
In the drawings: I Figure 1 is a perspective view of a coin purse constructed in accordance with the present invention and showing the coin container disposed out of the bag, Fig. 2 is a vertical section taken approxi- 'mately upon the plane of the line 2-2 of Fig. 1,
Fig. 3 is also a perspective view showing the retainer disposed onthe interior of the bag in dottedliues,
Fig. 4: is a section taken approxnnately upon the plane of the line 4t of Fig. Referring to the drawingsin detail, it will be seen that the reference character 1 designates the purse as an entirety. As be fore stated, the same comprises abag or body portion 2 and an integral neck 3. These two parts are definedbyxa lineof stitching 4 which is such as toform a fold 5 in the material. The entire device is made from two pieces of material stitched together as at 6. The upper edge of the extended neck 3 shown in Fig. 1 is inturned toprovide a pair of opposed pockets 7 in which resilient longitudinally bowed strips of metal 8 are located. p
. In practice,'the neck is disposed on the interior of thebag portion as represented in Figs. 3 and 4 at which time the bowed portions of the metal strip 8 come together in close relation as shown more particularly in Fig. 4. When the parts are in'this post than the entrance of theba'g.
tion, the fold 5 forms an entrance for the purse or bag while the neck constitutes a safety appliance for preventing accidental displacement of coins. It will be noticed that the neck is comparatively short with respect to the height of the bag and terminates in spaced relation above the bottom of the bag to permit considerable space for accommodating coins and the like. The bowed formation of the strips serves to cause the same to flatten when in the position shown in Fig. 4. Consequently, when it is desired to insert the hand into the purse to remove a coin, it is advisable to press upon the end portions of the strips to flex them in an opposite direction and to provide a convenient opening for insertion of the hand. Attention is particularly directed to the fact that the bag is of somewhat circular formation in general, configuration. Moreover, the neck is of such a shape'that when it is turned into the bag to operative posi-.. tion, the innermost end thereof is wider Hence, .tl'ie mouth of the bag itself forms somewhat of a 'shoulderfto prevent the safety device from being drawn out.
It is believed that the exceptional features together with the method of use in operation of the invention are clear from the'description and drawing.
Consequently, a more lengthy description is thought unnecessary.
Minor changes coming within the field of invention claimed may be resorted to if desiredr I claim: h
A coin purse comprising a body including an integral 'bag and neck defined by a stir rounding fold and stitching, said neck being disposed on the interior of the bag to act as a safety appliance, and said fold constituting an entrance. said neck having pockets at its outer ends, longitudinally bowed strips of metal arranged. in saidpockets, the entrance opening of said neck being longer than the entrance opening to the bag. whereby'to prevent said neck from being pulled.
downwardly through the entrance opening to sa idbag. In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
