It is an object of the invention to provide an improved money bag for carrying currency in such a manner nations placed therein are kept separate.

Another object of the invention is to provide an improved money bag having a plurality of receptacles each of which is readily accessible.

Another object of the invention is to provide an improved container, of the character referred to, which may be folded compactly and securely tied, and which is inexpensive to manufacture and durable in use.

The foregoing and such other objects of the invention as will appear hereinafter as the description proceeds, will be more readily understood from a perusal of the following specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which;

Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of the im proved money bag, showing portions broken away.

Fig. 2 is a vertical central sectional view, taken substantially on line 22 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary through one of the pockets, tially on line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of the money bag shown partially filled and having portions folded over.

Fig. 5 is a side elevational view showing the bag folded and tied.

It is the custom, in large mercantile establishments, department stores, and the like, where cash registers, cash drawers, and other cash holding devices are used, to assembled the daily receipts into a single container for delivery to the main oflice, accounting department, or bank. each department must be counted before being deposited in the container and it is necessary to separate the various denominations and count the currency upon reaching its destination.

The device embodying the invention, as set taken subst anthat various denomi- 1 formed and arranged relative to each other are adapted to receive formed by stitches when it is turned right side out.

Separate compartments or pockets are provided for each of the various denominations and these various compartments are so that they are readily acc-ess'ble "for filling or to the drawings in detail, the

bag which preferably similar material having a plurality of pockets 13 secured thereto. The pockets 13 nominations, such as pennies, quarters, and half dollars;

coins of different denickles, dimes, and bills and checks are deposited in the sack 12. The sack 7G 12 is preferably formed of one piece of material folded, as shown at 14, Fig. 1 and having its joined edges 15 and 16 secured together by stitch-es 17 It is preferable that the sack 12 be sewed together wlth the material folded inside out so that the outlets 18 of'the seams stitching at 21 The pockets edge 25 of the front portion 17 are disposed inwardly The open formed of and the the reinforced 23 to provide an extension or flap 26.

the edges of the ged in superwith each other on the sack 12 bysecuring the lateral edge 31 of each of of the sack 12 by a A reinforcing tending beyond the member or strip of material 33 preferably is placed over the joined edges 31 of the flaps 26 and secured in place thereover by the stitching 32. It will be noted, by referring particularly to Figs. 2 and 3, that the various edges of the sack and the pockets are all reinforced by hems or seams, thus a very durable container is provided which will withstand hard usage.

It is preferable that the outermost pocket 13 be filled first and access may be had to the next succeeding pocket by swinging the one which has been filled over the top of the sack 12, as shown in Fig. 4:, the coins deposited therein remaining in said pocket of their own Weight. As each of the pockets 13 are filled they are swung over the top of the sack in the same manner as the first and when all of said pockets are filled they are returned to their original position. Bills or checks are placed in the sack 12 and the upper portion of said sack and the flaps 26 are folded over the pockets 13 and secured in place by a tying strap 34 as shown in Fig. 5. This strap Selmay be detachable or it may be secured by the stitches 21 to one of the hems 22 of the sack. lVith the container folded and tied in this manner the contents of the sack or pockets can not fall out, irrespective of the position assumed thereby.

The advantage of employing a container for currency as described in the foregoing may be readily appreciated as notes may be kept of the amount of currency placed in each pocket. lVhen the containers from various departments are collected together it is unnecessary to recount the money, thus considerable time is saved and the probability of error or loss is minimized.

Although an exemplary form of the invention has been illustrated in the accompanying drawings and described in detail in the foregoing specification, it is to be readily understood that the improved money bag may be made in various sizes and may embody certain variations in detail structure without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the, appended claims.

I claim:

1. An article of the class described, comprising, a. sack formed of one piece of material, a plurality of pockets arranged in superimposed relation on said sack, each of the pockets being formed of two sections of material partially joined together adjacent their edges by stitches, and having its open end disposed toward the open end of said sack, one section of each of said pockets exother to form a flap, and said flaps being secured by stitches to the same wall of the sack.

2. An article of the class described, comprising, a sack formed of one piece of material, a plurality of flaps secured along one of their edges by stitches to the outside face of the same wall of said sack, said flaps overlying each other and having a pocket on their outwardly disposed side, the line of stitches securing the flaps to the sack being below the open end of the latter, whereby said flaps may be folded over said open end to dispose of pockets on the rear side of the sac C.

3. An article of the class described, comprising, a sack formed of one piece of material, a plurality of superimposed flaps secured along one of their edges by stitches to the outside face of the same wall of said sack, a pocket formed on the outwardly disposed side of each of said flaps, and means secured to the open end of the sack for securely tying the sack and pockets to prevent displacement of the contents.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature at Detroit, Wayne County, Mich.
