Patented Nov. 1K7, 1931 'UNITED 'STATES HAROLD L. MYERS, or ,Monnisrowim :NEW Jnnsninssrcnoamo AEisenmannFABER PENCIL oo., or BBQQKLYN, new Yoan, A coRPoaATIoN or NEW 'YORK y DISPLAY 'res Application led April 11,

rlhis invention relates :in ,general Ato display l tags to be Aremovably attached to articles for V*display purposes, for ,exampletoy a lead .pen

cil-or the like. v

One object of theinvention is 'to provide a device of this character formed ofa single piece of suitable material, for example cardboard or the like, and embodying novel and improved vfeatures of construction whereby',

the Vde-vicecan be blanked out of sheet material and folded to form a body portion and a bracket arm for connecting the body portion to an article, so that the bracket shall be positively rigidly held in proper position to engage the article and shall positivelyV hold the tag against unfolding or collapse.

Other objects are to provide a formed of a single piece of material and com- Y prising a body portion including two intef grally connected superposed sections one of which has a liap at a point oppositethe connection of the two sections, the other section having a slot through which the free end of the flap is inserted between the ltwo sections, i v A posed relation, asshown-,-n Figure :2 `of the drawing... vvThe Yflap-4 is Y.then bent ,along `-the dines., 9 andi@ ..toward xthe body portionof .the ,tagiacross the .edge ofithe -`o posite b ody section 1 into a position general y illustrated Visby the heavyfdot and dash. lines in Figure 2 and said flap having two spaced and alined openings to receive an article to which the tag is to be applied; to vprovide a tag of this character in'which the:-

ap comprises three sections one of which ris am inserted through the opening in the body portion so that the other two sections are disposed at an angle to each other an project rearwardly from the body portion, the lastf; mentioned sections having spaced and alined g 5 openings to receive an article for attaching the tag to the article, so that the flap when folded forms a rigid bracket arm which is positively held against collapse by the sec- 0 tion thereof inserted through the openingin the body portion and arrangedbetween fthe body sect-ions; and to obtain other advantages same reference characters,

Specifically describing the illustrated ernbodimentfof the invention, rthe .tag includes a body portion of sheet material, such as-card.- beard-,comprisingitwosubstantiallyidentical sections 1 and 2 which are integrally connectlegit-at 3so as tobe ,folded ,into superposed relation, @ne of vkthe sections is l provided at .a

; The :sections lgand 16 of ,ilapsarefpro- -Ividedrwitli fthe respective openings 12 and -13 nwhichrv are #disposed @ali-nement withaeach i `.are of iaisiLzegto frictinnall'y `receive thea-ntibodyfsectionsLandZ, soi-as to 'forni a bracket y cle to which the tag is to be applied, for eX- ample a pencil 14 shown by dot and dash lines on Figures 1 and 2 of -the drawings. In attaching the .tagr to the pencil, the pencil is slipped through the openings 12 and 13 and the frictional engagement of the edges of the opening upon the pencil hold the tag in the desired position. -f

Gbviously the shape of the body sections l and 2 inay be Vwidely varied according to the purpose for whichV the tag is to be used, and the shape and size ofthe openings 12 and 13 in the bracket arm may also be varied. Also, the tag can be formed of several' separate pieces instead of in one piece as described. y

Therefore, ity will be understood that-while I have shown the tagas embodying certain details of construction, and as applied to a 'certain use, the invention may be embodied in other details of construction" and the tag used in connection with other articles, withoutdepa'rting from the spirit or scope of the invention.

Having thus described the invention, what Iclaiinis: 1 V
