Our invention relates to trays having vera drawer comprising a tray movable into and tical walls forming compartments and more out of the register and having vertical side particularly to tills havingcompartments walls 3, front and rear. walls 4: and'5, and formed suitably for receiving cash, checks partitions 6 forming compartments 7 where-- 5 and the like, for example paper currency, by the drawer'may constitutea till to receive and means for readjusting the'dimensions of money. I the compartments, the principal objects of The compartment 7 is originally adapte the invention being to adapt a partitioned to contain notes of conventional size and is tray for receiving currency haying smaller therefore much larger than necessary for con- 10 dimensions than the currency for which the taining notes 8 of the new issues. 6Q

In order to provide accessibility for ar- Fig. 3 is a plan view of a modified form of ticles contained in the compartment we cut sanitary till in which the reducing elements away the upper edge of the wing as at 20 to 05 comprise the compartments. form a relatively shallow portion, so that the Fig. 4 is a perspective view of one of the fingers of the operator maybe passed into the elements forming the till illustrated in Fig. 3. compartment to grasp the upper edge portions Referring in detail to the'drawin'g: of the articles contained therein. I designates generally a cashreg-ister and-,2 The modified form of the insert illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4, comprises a front wall member 11 adapted to be attached to the front wall of a drawer, an extended side wall comfromthe front wall 11' for accommodating 7 articles to be stored in the drawer.

A suitable number of inserts of appropriate width may be provided to fill the space be tween the sides of the drawer, or a drawer may be provided of suitable width to accommodate inserts of desired dimensions. The interlocking ears and sockets will latch therear ends of the inserts to form a line of connected rear walls, the outer ends'of which are respectively an ear and a socket portion engaging sides of the drawer. V

One of the inserts may then beattached to the front wall of the drawer, preferably the end insert, by inserting a fastener 17 through the front wall 11 of the insert into the front wall of the drawer. i The modified form of clude the chamber forming transverse wall 12, and the chamberside wall 14, for stabilizing the inserts, in which case the walls 12 and 21 are spaced conformably to the length of articles to be stored. i

. A second row of inserts may be'installed back of the single row shown in Fig.3, one of the inserts having its front wall attached to the rear wall 21 of the adjacent insert of the front row in the same manner as that em ployed for fastening the insert of the front row to the front wall of the-drawer;

The inserts are vertically slidable into and out of latching relation with adjacent positioned inserts. 7

The reducing members thus'may be as sembled as'illustrated in Fig. 3 for comprising compartment elements when positioned in a relatively large compartment or in a tray not initially provided with compartments, and thus forming recesses adapted for receiving currency. f i 'The rearwardly extending side walls of the inserts are preferably tapered as at 23 to lessen the height of the terminal portion of the wall and of the flange or car, to accommodate the inserts to drawers hav'ing projections in rear walls adjacent the upper edges thereof.

The chamber comprises a storage space for frequently used items, and is particularly adapted to receive a sponge to hold water for moisteningthe fingers of the used, for facilitating picking up of the currency and rendering moistening of the fingers by other and less sanitary means unnecessary. V

What we claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

insert may also in- 1. An insert for reducing the size of a tray compartment, including a chamber portion adapted to be attached to one of the vertical walls of the compartment for reducing the length of the compartment, and a side plate extending rearwardly from said chamher portion in'spa ced relation with an adja-. 7

In combination with a tray having verhaving parallel front and back walls and side walls adapted to extend in parallel relation to form compartments in the tray, and means on each of said side walls engageable with the adjacent member for retaining the members in compartment forming position;

4. In combination with a tray having vertical walls, means including memberseach having parallel front and back walls and side walls forming compartments in the tray, said side walls being extended beyondthe back walls, and means on each "of said extended side walls engageable with, the adjacent member for retaining the members in compartment forming position.

f 5. An insert of the character described comprising a rear wall, a front attaching member and a side wall connecting the rear wall with the attaching member --and provided with a lateral wing extending oppositely to the rear wall. I

' 6. An insert of the character described, comprising parallel front and rear walls, a side wall, a lateral flange at the rear end of the side wall and a socket at the outer end of the rear wall to receive the flange of an adjacent insert.

7 An insert for tills comprising side and end walls, and an ear projecting laterally from one of said walls adapted to effect spacing of said side wall from the adjacent side wall of the till.

8. A device of the character described, in: cluding a side wall having lateral projections forming respectively an ear member and an end wall member, and means for attaching one of said members to a wall of a tray or the like for enabling the device to reduce the effective area of the tray.

9. An insert for tills comprising a side wall having an ear projecting laterally therefrom to engage the side wall of a till for spacing said insert side wall from the side wall of the till, and an end wall projecting from one end of said side wall, and means for securing said insert to the till.

10. An insert for tills comprising a side wall having an ear projecting laterally therefrom to engage the side wall of a till for spacing said insert side wall from the side wall of the till, and an end wall projecting from one end of said side wall oppositely to said ear, and means for securing said insert to one of the end walls of the till.

11. In combination with a tray having side walls forming a compartment, an insert comprising a chamber member including end walls and a side wall having a laterally projecting ear for spacing the side wall of the insert from the adjacent side wall of the tray, and means for attaching the insert to the tray with one of said end walls spaced from the adjacent end wall of the tray.

12. In combination with a tray having end, side and bottom walls, an insert includ ing a vertical side wall provided with a cutaway portion and having a laterally projecting ear, and an end wall, and having an aperture to admit fastening means for securing said insert to one of the walls of the tray.

In testimony whereof we aflix' our signatures.
