SIGNORS '10 WATERBURY BUTTON COMPANY, YOEWATERBUBY, CONNECTICUT, econ- .TOY BANK AND VENDING MACHINE 1 .Appl i ca'tion tfile'd April 20,1922 Serial No. 356,852.

\i the above nature which will be simple in construction, inexpensive to manufacture, easy to install and-manipulate, compac't, ornalnental in appearance, and very eiiiclent and durable in use.

With these and other objects in view there has been illustratedon the accompanying drawings one form in which the invention may be conveniently embodied in practice.

Fig. .1 represents a verticalsectional view of the toy' vending bank.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the pull drawer for delivering the .vended article.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional view of the bank with the pull drawer shown in open position.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the general appearance of the bankwiththe side door thereof in open position. 7

Referring now to the "drawings in which like reference numerals denote correspond- ;ing parts throughout the. several news, the

numeral 10 indicates a box-shaped casing having a curved cover llshaped to imitate theroof ofa small house, and a flanged base 12 for simulating the foundation of said house. Mounted'within'thecasing 10 is a downwardly and .rearwardly inclined coinchute 113 having its upper torwardend-1m hated-slightly below and alinement with "for .a distance equal 'to the heightof said a coin-insertion opening 14 in'the front of the casing 10. i

'The rear part 0f the coin chute :13is verticaland lies adj aoentand'para'llel to the rear of :the casing 10. In .order to guide the coins initheir downward travel, provision is madeaoYf a 'U-shaped vertical member :15 located between the rear of the chute 13 and the :reariof the casing v10 and Fforming a p assageway 16. The bottom endloi the passageway 16 is in alinementwith the :rear reduced section '17 of a latch lever '18 having a pair .of oppositely extending lugs '19 for pivotal engagement in suitable sockets formed iina @pair of ears 2O depending-from the rear :section -.of a ipull'drawer '21.

The :forward .part of the latch lever 18 is provided with a depending vertical latch 22 normallyidesigned to'ibe elocked within a slot 23 in a partition .memberQ secured in the casing :10 near the bottom thereof. As will be understood, the Space :below said partition member 24c.comprises the bank proper, or in other'awords,.a"receptacle for the coins deposited by the child. The rearssection 17 and aforwardly inclined catch 25 which is adapted toibeengaged by :a cooperating upwardly-and rearwardly inclined lug 26 struck :up from the metal. of the partition 24 and located atthe rear of the slot 23. Thecatch .25 and the lug26 serve to pre vent .the drawer 2.1 from being'pulled out toofar, or in other -words,;beyond the article- .delivering. position shown in Fig. .3.

In .order to prevent ,more than one candy .articleffrom Ibeingdelivered at one operation of .the 'device, the .forward section of has :a downwardly the drawer 21 is off-set downwardlyat .28

article27, such as apiece of chocolate, and said 'drawer'has anrupstanding forward end 29provided with a drawer pulling knob '30 {for convenience inmanipulation.

v an ular-plate member 8 isprovided in the bank above the partition 24: and has a vertical portion 32 for confining the candy pieces 27 in a storage space at the front of the casing in position to be visible through a glass window 33. The plate member 31 has a horizontal rearwardly extending base 84 which forms a guideway for the top of the drawer 21. The coins which collectin the receptacle at the bottom of the bank are made proof against unauthorized removal by a door 35 pivotally connected to one side of the casing 10 by a hinge 36, said door having a key-operated lock 37 mounted thereon. The lock 37 has a latch bar 38 adapted to engage behind a vertical flange 39 extending along the front side of the door frame of said. casinglO.

Operation In operation, when the child deposits a coin in the slotll, it"will slide down the coin chute 13 and drop through the vertical passageway 16, striking the rear section 17 of'the latch lever 18. The latch lever 18 is so designed that the weight in front of the pivot lugs 19 will overbalance the weight behind said lugs, whereby the rear reduced section 17 will normally remain in its uppermost position, as shown in Fig. l. The weight of the coin on the rear reduced section 17 of the lever 18 will cause it to tilt downwardly to the position shown in F 3, disengaging the latch 22 from the slot 23. The child will then grasp the handle 30 and pull the drawer 21 out to the position shown in Fig. 3, the depressed forward section 28 of said drawer carrying a piece of candy 27, which is then removed by the child. This action permits the coin to drop down into the receptacle below the partition 24. Since the lowermost remaining piece of candy 27 will then rest on the rear ofthe drawer 21, it will be seen that it will be impossible to remove more than one piece at a time. When the drawer 21 is pushed back far enough to permit another piece of candy 27 to drop into the depressed forward section 28 of the drawer, the latch 22' will already have dropped down again into the slot 23. The drawer will then be locked in its original condition and the device will be ready for another operation.

While there has been disclosed in this specification one form in which the invention maybe embodied, it isto be understood that this form is shown for the purpose of illustration. only, and. that the invention is not. to be limited to the specific disclosure but may bemodified and, embodied in vari- In short, the invention includes 'ous other] forms without departing from its spirit.

all the modifications and embodiments com ing within the scope of the following claims.

Having thus fully described the. invention, what is claimed as new, and for which it is desired to' secure Letters Patent, is:

1. In a toy vending bank, a casing, a coin-conveying chute, a slidable pull drawer for containing a vendible article, a lever pivotally mounted on said drawer, said lever having a depending latch on its forward end, said casing having a slot located below said latch when said drawer is closed for normally preventing the withdrawal thereof, the rear end of said lever having a locking latch for engaging said casing to prevent complete withdrawal of said drawer, said rear end being normally situated beneath and in alinement with the bottom discharge end of said coin chute, whereby the falling of a coin will cause the latch to be disengaged from'said catch permitting the man ual withdrawal of said pull drawer for removal'of the article therefrom.

will cause the latch to be disengaged from said catch permitting the manual withdrawal of said pull drawer for removal of the article therefrom, the rear end of said lever having a locking latch, and said casing having a lug for engaging said rear latch to lock said drawer against being withdrawnfen tirely out of said casing.

3. In a toy vending bank, a casing, a coinconveying chute, a slidable pull drawer for containing a vendible article, a lever pivotally mounted .on said drawer, said lever having a depending latch on its forward end, said casing having a catch section located below said latch when said drawer is closed for normally preventing the withdrawal thereof, the rear endof said lever being normally situated beneath and in alinement with the bottom discharge end of said'coin chute, whereby the falling of a coin will cause the latch to be disengaged from said catch permitting the manual withdrawal of said pull drawer for removal of the article therefrom, the rear end of said lever having a depending locking latch, and said casing having an upstanding lug for engaging said rear latch to lock said drawer against being withdrawn entirely out of said casing.

' 4. In a toy vending bank, a casing, a coinconveying chute, a partition near the bottom of said casing, a pull drawer slidable upon said partition, said pull drawer having a raised rear section, a pair of cars depend- WILLIAM SELBY. RENE PAUL MAGNENAT.
