Application led .fune e,
rlhis invention relates to an' improved article carrier or holder of the leather holder type, used for carrying keys and the like. In accordance with tlie present invention, the holder is improved first by providing it with an outside pocket for receiving an automobile drivers license card. Secondly, the holder is improved by providing the central portion of the leather holder, on its inner surface, with a backing and reinforcing plate, which prevents collapsing of the holder and bending or distortion of the license card.
These improvements will be better understood from the following detailed description and drawings.
