This invention relates to new and useful improvements in identification seals and has more particular reference to seals particu larly intendedfor fur skins.
. This invention relates to similar subject matter to that disclosed in my'copending ap-' plication, Serial No. 352,404, filed on the 4th day of April, 1929, for identification seals.
The invention proposes an identification seal arranged to be protected against injury during co mbing,,dressingand other opera.
tions upon fur skins during the. process of' preparing them forthe manufacture into coats and thelike. More specifically, a ridge is proposed with an internal depression, and an. identified eyelet disposed in the depres sion. A pair of adjacent eyelets may be arranged as just stated and in addition in alignment as determined by apertures in the eyelet. f i
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages there of, reference will be hadto the following de scription and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the intention are more par- In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a fur skin with an identification seal applied.

applied upon one edge. The fur skin has an aperture 12 and the seal 11 consists of a bend able strip 13 bent around the edge of the fur In other respects t skin" and thefree ends of the strip being clamped together thruthe opening 12. An eyelet 14 is depended upon to do this clamp- Each of the ends of the bendable strip is formed withan'joutward stamped circular ridge 15) providing a central depression 16.
The heads of the eyelet14 are disposed within'the depression -16.j Further, the. heads of the. eyelets are formed with, identification cuts 17 andtherowner'of the fur skin may hm template fQri ne' artia lar eyelet. v
In the modified form'of' the device illus trated in.Fi .,5, a strip 13 has been illus trated with outward stamped circular ridges 15,at its ends; One of the ends of the strip 13" is formed a with a tubular projection 18, located-within; the boundary of the ridge15;. The otherend'of the strip' 13" is formed with an aperture'" alsoiwithinthe boundary of its' ridge, 15f'a'nd the tubular-projection 18 maypassthru theapertureand then be turned downwards as indicatedby numeral 18 for holding the parts inposition. The turned- ]down portion 18 ofthe eyelet may be provided with apluralityofl'identification' cuts17. his form is similar tothe preferredform. 1
In the modified form illustrated in Figs.
6 and7, astrip' l3 fhashe enillustrated and each of the endsof the'strip-is formed with adjacent circular ridges; 15 These ridges 'havecentral' depressions 16 'The central depressed portions ofi-each end are normally 1 spaced froni e'a'ch otherwhen the 'seal I I plied upon a fur skin, suc h space being'indi-fl a catedby'numeral 19 in Fig. 7. I The edges of;
the strip touch each other as indicated-by numeral 20 for providing the space 19. Eyelets 14 are engaged thru the endsof thestrip 13 and thru apertures encircled by the ridges 15*. 'These' eyelets have identification cuts 17 In addition, these eyelets are formed with transverse needleapertures 21 so that the touching'edges .20 may be forced apart 4.
and a needle inserted for aligning the needle apertures 21 of the pair of eyelets'shown on the drawings. In aligned position the iden-- tification cuts 17 of. the eyelets must be in certain relations to each other if these are the genuine eyelets originally used in engage Inent upon the fur skin.
In each of the forms shown, the heads of 5 the eyelets are protected by the ridges against accidental. damage during combing of the fur skin or other dressing operation. If not for the protecting ridge the heads of the eyelets and the cuts 17 would be slightly distorted during normal handling of the fur skin and tend to cause unwarranted suspicions. f
IVhile I have shown and'des'cribed'the preferred embodiment of my invention, it
is to be understood that I do not liinit myself to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims. V
Having thus described rnyinvention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is 2-" 1. In a, seal, a bendable strip, circular 2 ridges pressed in the-ends thereoffor projecting the ends of identification eyelet-s, and identificationeyelets engaged in the ends 01" thestrip so as to have their ends protected by the ridges, said eyelets having identifica- 3 tion cuts on their ends. r Y
2. A device of the class described, comprising a bent strip having its ends adjacent each other, a pair of ridge portions formed in each of the ends, the portions ofthe strip 3 5 provided with the ridges being slightly spaced from each other and bent to'touch along the edges and of springy material permit-ting the insertion of a needlebetween the touching parts, and identification eyelets 49 holding the ends together and formed with transverse needle apertures. I 3. A device of the class described, compris ing a'bent strip having'its ends adjacent each other,a pair of circular ridge portions formed in each of the ends, the portions of the strip provided with the ridges being slightly spaced from each other andbentto touch along the edges and of springy material perinitting the insertion of-a needle between the touching parts, and identification eyelets holding the ends together and formed with transverseneedle apertures. y
