Application led December 1, 1924. Serial No. 753,194.

The invention relates to containers, and more particularly to a fibre onpaper container.` f

As usually constructed, containers of this character haveheads which are secured to the plain walls ofthe container by gluing or by special fasteners or metal bands. y The object of this invention is to depart materially from the usual practice and produce a closedend container of simple but very strong construction in which the closed end of the containerbecomes a part of the siding by using more or less of the siding as a part of the end closure and in such a way that the heads form- ]5 ing the closure are efficiently-secured in position and form with the siding a unitary structure.

-The invention further consists in the' several -eatureshereinafter set forth 'and 20 more particularly defined by claim at the con- ,clusion hereof. 1

.In the 4drawings Fig. 1 is a vertical sec'- tional view ot' a container embodying the invention; Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1

with a part of the siding crimped against the head; Fig. 3 is a view similar to FigI 2 show` 'ing a wear band associated therewith.

The subject `matter of the invention re- Jlates to the vend closure of the cover or body ofthe box and, as such means may be identical for either the cover or the body of the box,

` y the-box or container alone has been shown in detail for the purpose of explaining the invention.

ingand extending` at an angle `to the outerl wall portion 6. ,The thickness-of the flange 50.' portion 5 and its width may be varied to suitrequirement-s. y l

With the flange portion 5 bent inwardly,

inner and outer head members 7 and. 8 are secured thereto in any`suitable'manner, as by "adhesive and preferably under pressure.

The sides 4 of the box, as Well as the sides of the cover,are composed ofi fibre, either y and outer an integral The inner head 7 is adapted to Ht or conform with the shape of the inner wall of the container and the outer head is adapted to fit or conform with the shape of the inner side of `the outer. wall portion 6. Where the iiange y adhesive.

The outer wall portion 6 ouf-the siding is also preferably bent down against the outer head, .as shown at `9 in Fig. 1, or is .crimped against the head, as at 10 in`Fig. 2, or it may be crimped with the edge 11 of a sheet metal wear .band or sheathing 12, of a shape to con form with the outer Vwall of the siding, over against the outer head, as-at 13 in Fig. 3, so as to form a retainer for-said outer head.

that an integral part of the siding forms a seating iiange for the inner -head 6 and that '15 With this construction it will be noted' the Outer head 7 abuts against a shoulder 14- formed in the siding by the flange portion 5, and that the outer head is securedY against outward'movement by apart of the siding, or bya part oi the siding and'a Wear band associated therewith. By'this. construction it will be noted that it necessaryv to tear the heads 7 and 6 from the ilange portion 5 1n order to remove or release them, and that the siding is e'iciently combined with the heads to form a unitary closure structure either for the cover or an end of a container. I have used the. term band in this specification to include broadly a ring or strip, the ring'form being used on a cylindrical container' while the strip form may be used on containers having polygonal-shaped tubing orsiding.

Ifdesire it to be understood that this invention is not to be limited .to any specific form or arrangement'of vparts except in so far as such limltations are lncluded 1n the clalm.-

.What I claim as my mventlon 1s:


In a container, thedcombination ofinner.

siding, and'secured between said inner' and head members,and siding having l closure flange coextensive with the outer head members, a metal sheathing, a part ofsaidV sidingbein'g crimped with said v sheathing againstthe outer headmember.`

In testimony whereof, I aix iny' signature.l
