f This invention relates to a new and improved button receptacle'.
In a great many States, `a person who desires to hunt or trap wild gaine, or to fish 5 is required to-'obtain from the State' a'vlicense for so doing. It is Ausually required by law that when such aperson'isengaged'in the activity for which hehas taken a license, he must carry withhim a button or tag carrying 10 onfits face indicia asserting the fact thaty he is the holder of such a license and this button or tag must at alllti'rn'esbe exposed to view. In addition, the-licensee is required to have with him the license itself. i
15 The main object of invention is to provide a button whichlwill not only'v carry on its face the required indicia, butwhich will itself; forrn a convenient receptaclein which the license itself may be carried.
I ainaware thatcertain buttons have been inadewith provision for carrying a license,
but in all such articles yhitherto known, there receptacle of such a designv thatwhen ali? cense is placed therein," it will/be secured thereinwith no 4danger of its becoming dis- Another'object of my invention `isp/to prof vide .a structure in which' the receptacle for the license .will be made by the malformation,
of the shellV or rear plate ofthebutton with out the necessity of `providing a separate and independent Inember .inv Aorder toobtain Such receptacle'l"\ j i ther'objeets andV advantages relate to the will -ino 1"ef'7ull'yv appear rfrom the yfollowing descriptionl taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in Which:l L
size, shape and arrangement of parta'ally as Fig-urel yis a `front elevationv'of''the Pre# or back plate of the device.
of the shell Figure 6 is a view similar to'Figure l off i a Inodiied form ofrny device.
Figure 7 is a rear elevation of such modied for Figure 8 'is a section on line y8 8 of Figure 6. l
Figure 9 is a section'on line 9--9 0 'Figure 6.
Figure 10 is aV perspective view of the shell Y er back plate ofthe modified forni shown in Figure 7. My buttonv kl consists of a front plate 2,
preferably. circular in forni and having. its edge return rbent to form an annular ,groove 3.- The indiciaI carrying material lrhaving, When desired, indicia thereon, none here being shown,is positioned on the front surfaceA of front plate 2' and has-its edge return bent around theedgeof the front plate 2 into the annular groove 3 with aportion of such edge resting against the baclrof front yplate 2.
The shell or back plate 5 is formed with i' annular rirn 6 and has its central portion 7 dlshed inwardly. A pair of spaced apertures` v 8 and are. 'ornied'in central portion 7 adliacent rim 6. Beneath aperturesS and 9 and in central; portion7 I forni a slot'lO.- The part ofcentral portion 7 adjacentthe lower edge of slot 10 is bent outwardly to orrnthe soy loacl;v and sides of a pocketor receptacle'll` Which will beforined between it and front plate 2 when' the partsv are assernbledpin ythe inanner'herein'after described.v In vthe lower' a purpose hereinafter to be de#` scribed. f i
Forthepurpose of attachingthek button rec eptacle toa garment,1 provide apinil. perhaps may best be scontrom FiguresZ 4, pin 13 Ahas an v'oppositely deiiectedj portion .Y
14 positionedV between-the central portion 7 of baclr'platef and FJfront plate 2 and has one end extending outwardly throughapertureS and f orrned .into a coil l5 from which extends f f the pinportlon 16 yto engage a loopj 17 formed.
`upon the opposite end of portion Matter the Y I saine has' been extended [outwardlyxthrougfh aperture: 9. Pin V.portion'l at V'its centrall point has an inwardly extending curved portion 18 ot a size and shape to extend into slot l when the pin portion 16 is engaged with loop 17. Y
TvVith the pin 13 isf position on back plate 5, theannular rim 6 of back plate 5 is placed in position against4 the inner surface Vofthe indicia carrying material 4, which is tingagainst the part-ofthe indicia carrying Vpositioned in the annular groove 'of the front plate 2, the inner'edge otrim 6 :abutmaterial 4- which is positioned against the rear surface lof front plate 2. lThe annular' rim ot front plate 2 being deflected inwardly and rim 6 ot back plate r5 being deflected outwardly the parts willbe iirinlyljocled inposition when they have vbeen assembled in the manner just described. Y ,Y
`lllhen back plate 5 isin position on front plate 2, the portion .14 of pin 13 will be held against the innerl'ace ottront plate 2 and such portion 14 being oppositely deflected the pin 13 will beheld rigidly in position. Vth ,parts inthe assembled relation, the space between the'part 11 of back plate 5 and the inner faceoffront plate 2 willform val receptacle-into which a license `or' other card may be placed. `Vhen a license is in such receptacle andthe pin-portionfl has .been passed through the clothing of the wearer and Vits end positioned in loop 17, the curved` port-ion 18`o1t'thepin portion 16 will extend into slotjlO and engage the licenseto. hold firmly in the receptacle. `VThe aperture 12 is provided so that a linger-or other object may be inserted into the receptacle to aid'in tore ing theflicense out when it is so desired.
In the modified. form shown in Figures 6 to 10 inclusive, the difference in construction consists in the shape of theY back plate although the objectto be accomplished is the same that is Vthe formation ota'receptacle between the frontk plate and the back plate by themaltormationot the back plate.
Y I In this embodimentolmy invention, I show a front plate 18 similar in form to front Vplate 2 and having'an annular groove. V19. Indicia carrying material 2O is placed infposition` on Iprovide an aperture`27. A Y
. A pin 28 similarin Vshape to pin 13 has itsl Y oppositeiy bentportion 29positioned against Y the inner surface oiY the inwardly bent, portion 1` 26 ot'backl plate 21 and has its springend 30 front plate'lS in the same manner. that :the indicia carrying material Llwas .placed in position on front plate 2.
`The back plate 21 is provided with an annular rim22 and has spaced elongated struckout portions r23 and 24 which are bent `inwardly'in parallel relation, 'ln/theupper part of baci: plate 211 form a U-shapedslot 25having its v.opposite ends adjacent rim 22d.
he u a 3er 3ortionl26 of back late 21 is bent ll l P inwardly for a purpose hereinafter to be ,de-V scribed.Y YYIn the lowerpart of back :plate 21 ot` front plate 18 by t-he inwardly bent portion Y26 of back plate 21.` V'lhe'relation of parts is such that when they are in the assembled position,v the inwardly extending portions 23and 24 of back plate 21 willcontact with the rear surface of rontplate'l-S and function as sidemembers oie the receptacle formedbetween the rear face Vof iront plate 118 and the'innerface oiback plate 2:1, the por tion 26 being bent inwa-rdlyinto Contact with. the rear tace of front 4plate 18g Ajlicenseor other indicia carrying card may be inserted vthroughV tl slot 25 into. the spacebetween front platelS and baclpplate 21'. Aperture 27 is provided so that vaiingeror 'oth'erg'obj ect may be inserted therein to assist in removing a license from the receptacle. -When-alicense is in the receptacle and they pin portion 32 of pin 28 has been passed through theclothing ot the wearer .and enOaUed with loon 31 "the D C: .L 3
curved portion 30' will'` extend inwardly and engage the licenseto secureitin position. v lt will be Iunderstood that further.modi-y tications ot my device may be made without departing fromfthe,spirit of my invention;
lt will also be understood that the size, shape Y and particular :arrangement ofparts may also be variedl as desired, for although I-have shown and described specific vstructures vand ments ot'myinvention, l'donot desire tovk restrict myself to the exact size, shape, or relation ot vparts kas various changes may be made. within the'v scope of the appended claims. f i Y fl claim: y Y 1.
