J. SELDEN LOOSE LEAF SHEET Original Filed April 5, 1928 IN'VENTOPL lBa H 100/ 1111 WA if JOHN. SELDEN ATTORNEYS Patented July. 1, 1930 JOHN SELDEN, OF ST. JOHN S, QUEBEC, CANADA, ASSIGNOR HUNDREDTHS TO HERMAN ZOTTI OF FORTY-NINE ONE- LOOSE-LEAF SHEET Application filed April 3, 1928, Serial No. 267,004. Renewed February 13, 1930.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in loose leaf sheets for looseleaf note books, ledgers, and the-like. The main object of the invention is to provide an inexpensive sheet so reinforced that it will not tear or become loose from the attaching medium due to rough usage.

Up to the present time, it has been found a diflicult matter to obtain an inexpensive looseleaf sheet which would stand the rough the edges ofthe strip and are preferably.

usage that they are subjected to. Sheets have 'been manufactured with linen reinforcing strips along one edge, but these strips are expensive to manufacture and are easily torn.

\ 15 According to my invention I provide a sheet of paper having a metallic reinforcing medium secured to one'edge thereof, and said medium is perforated for attaching same to the clips of a looseleaf ledger.

In the drawings which illustrate my invention:- 1

Figure 1 is a perspective view of my pre ferred form of loose leaf sheet.

Figure 2 is a sectional plan taken on the line 22 Figure 1.

,Figure 3 is a part perspective view of a modified type of the sheet shown in Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a view similar to that shown in Figure 3, but showing a further modification which may be made to the sheet shown in Figure 1.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, 1O designates a sheet of paper and'secured to one marginal edge thereof by an ad hesive is a very thin metallic strip 11, provided with a plurality of perforations 12. In Figure 1 these perforations are spaced from punched through the shown. 1 In Figure 3 the paper and the strip as along one marginal edge ofthe sheet 10 and the perforations 12 are punched in the paper only. The edges of the perforations are preferably placed as close as possible to the edge 11 of the metallic strip. In Figure 4 the perforations 12 strip 11 only and the edge 11 of said strip overlies and is secured to the marginal 'edge of the paper 10 by any suitable means.

are punched in the metallic The metallic strip reinforces the sheet and forations when the leaf is attached to the staples or hooks of a looseleaf note book, ledger, or the like. The metallic strips can be very easily manufactured and when attached to the paper sheet form a reinforcement for same which will practically eliminate tearing of the sheets through the perforations. The metallic strip toughens the edge of the sheet finld does not detract from it any of its flexil ity.

Having thus described my invention, What I claim is 1. A loose leaf, comprising a sheet of paper having secured thereto and along one marginal edge, a thin strip of metal, said strip and sheet being perforated for attaching to the staples of a looseleaf ledger or the like.

2. A looseleaf, comprising a sheet of paper having secured thereto by means of an adhesive, a thin metallic reinforcing strip, said strip being along one marginal edge of the paper, the strip having perforations formed therein for securing the sheet to staples and the like.

3. A loose leaf comprising a sheet of paper, a thin highly flexible strip of aluminum adhesively united to one face of said sheet and positioned to extend along one edge of the sheet to provide a flexible reenforcement therefor.

In Witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand.
