CIGARETTE JACKET Filed' May 9, 1930 Patented June 14, 1932 PATENT OFFICE JOHN A. HOLSMAN, F DES MOINES, IOWA CIGARETTE JACKET Application filed Hay 9, 1980. Serial No. 451,013.

The object of my invention is to provide a jacket o simple and inexpensive construction, which can be conveniently and eas1ly placed on a cigarette for affording means j whereby the cigarette may be grasped without the likelihood of staining t-he lingers or the necessity of directly grasping the cigarette.

With this and other objects in view my 1u invention consists in the construction, ar-

rangement and combination of the device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in my claim, and illustrated in the laccompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of a cigarette having thereon a jacket embodying my invention.

Figure 2 is a detailed sectional view taken a@ on the line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figures 3, 4 and 5 are similar views illustrating the diEerent forms in which the invention may be made.

Figure 6 is a perspective view of one of the I modified forms of my jacket.

It is well known that some people, particularly women, have compunctions against holding a cigarette in the fingers on account of the odor and stain which may be imparted.

Ordinary cigarette holders are expensive enough that the ownei1 does not want to throw them away and they retain a stagnant odor to the garments or bag in which they are carried.

My purpose, therefore, is to provide a jacket for a cigarette which can be placed on the cigarette so that the user can grasp the acket instead of the cigarette, which jacket is so inexpensive that after one use it can be thrown 40 away.

In Figures 1 and 2 I have shown such a jacket indicated at A, made in the form of a cylinder of any suitable material, such for instance as thin paper. It will, of course, be

understood that the material used might be cardboard, asbestos, metal, or any composition suitable for the purpose.

In the form of the invention shown in Fi res 1 and 2, holes are pricked in the jac et as indicated at 10.

The holes are perforated from the outside and it will be understood that this manner of malu'ng them causes small tongues 12 to be forced inwardly. These tongues serve as means which may engage the cigarette and at; h old the body of the jacket spaced from the cigarette.

At the same time the lingers 12 frictionally grip the cigarette in such a way that the jacket will be snugly and firmly held an thereon.

I prefer to slightly flare one end of the jacket A as indicated at 14 in Figure l. so that the end of the cigarette may be conveniently inserted into the jacket. This @i3 makes it possible to place the jackets in a box with the flared ends of the jacket et the open end of the box so that a cigarette can be inserted into one of the jackets and upon withdrawal of the cigarette the jacket ej@ will adhere thereto.

In Figures 3, 4 and 5 I have shown dien ent shapes which may be given to the jacket.

It will, of course, be understood that the jacket could be smooth, but I preferably pre- 7a fer to prick the holes as shown in Figure 1, or to provide regular indentations as shown in the jacket B of Figure 3 at 16.

In Figure 4 I have shown a pleated jacket C.

In Figure 5 a jacket D longitudinally corru ated is shown.

reater variety of shapes could be employed.

The material used may be of inflammable a5 material, or of materialwhich will not readily burn.

It will be obvious that the tongues 12, or the indentations, or the corru ations, or the pleats 16, may be provided Ior the entire o0 length of the jacket, or only at the ends, or in circumferential belts, or as may be desired.

It is obvious also that the corrugations or pleats might extend circumferentially instead of lengthwise of the jacket.

The jackets may be made in colors if desired.

Where they are made of stili' enou h material, the cylinder may be split and ormed with i longitudinal 810i 2o as indicated in Filres 5 and 6 or without the slots. e len a size and material may` be change to sui the taste of the manufacturer and the price of the finished roduct; kee ing in mind, of course, that suc product as can be made at a cost low enoug so that the jackets may be sold at a low price and may be thrown away after one use.

Where such a jacket is employed the user of cigarettes will not acquire the stain or odor which are so objectionable.

I claim as my invention:

A temporary jacket for cigarettes comprising a light thin cylinder of slightly resilient flexible material having portions impressed for resiliently engaging the cigarette at a large number of points, the impressed portions'extending radiali inwardly and the arts being so arranged t at the jacket may readily moved lengthwise in either drection on the ci arette'or may be grasped by the fingers an pressed against the cigarette so that the cigarette will not move therein.
