Patented Dec. 27, 1932 STATES JAMES o. McnoNALD, or DALLAS, TEXAS CARBON CARD INDEX Application filed January 6, 1932. Serial No. 585,027.

This invention has for its object to provide a carbon card index for the purpose of recording and protecting collections made in the field by collectors, and is particularly adaptable to industrial insurance companies, or may be used in other lines of business where suitable.

In this connection and more particularly the invent-ion provides a carbon card index with a sealed record of money collected, the date such amount or amounts were received, the date it was due, together with the name of the collector and the page number on which the account is carried for properly identifying the person who paid the amount. In fact, a true and accurate sealed carbon record of his daily transactions.

The invention will be readily understood from a perusal of the following detailed description, in connection with the accompanying drawing, and in the drawing:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of one side of the carbon card index with carbon sheet partly broken away.

Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1, but showing the reverse side of the card and carbon sheet. 7

Figure 3 is a face View of the upper part of a receipt book associated with the index card.

Figure i is a fragmentary perspective view of the receipt book, showing its folding position over the index card.

Figure 5 is a face view of the upper part of the receipt book and the index card, with the receipt book folded to enclose the card.

Figure 6 is a cross-sectional view, on the line 6-6 of Figure 5, and

Figure 7 is a vertical sectional view of part of the card shown in Figure 1, the view being on the line 77 thereof.

Referring more in detail to the drawing, 1 denotes the index card which is lined for writing, and carrying indicia as shown date, month, day and year the amount is due, and similar information as to when such amount was received, the actual amount received, the collectors signature, and in addition the page number of the ledger or similar identifying mark. This information is.

shown on both sides of the card '1. This card has affixed thereto on both sides a sheet of carbon 2, the carbon being folded over the top edge of the card as will be apparent from Figure 7. The lower edges of this carbon sheet are gummed at 3 and cover the card as shown with the exception of the pagereference and a small marginal part at the lower endof the card. j

Associated with the card is the premium receipt book or folder 4, carrying the same lines for writing and the same indicia with the exception of the page number information. This receipt book or folder is shown in Figure 3 in part and in Figure 5 it has been folded back to back to enclose the index card 1. The lines or rulings on which the writing is placed both on the in'dexcard and the receipt book must be in alinement when the record is being made, and this may be accomplished by moving the book and card with respect to one another or that is sliding the card within the book, such procedure being indicated in Figure 5. Both sides of the card are thus utilized and likewise both sheets of the book or folder are used in making the record.

In making field collections heretofore a receipt is given and the collections supposed to be entered in a collection book, but frequently such collections are not entered and considerable time sometimes elapses before these collections are checked up and proper credit given. lVith the carbon card index as here presented a much better accounting system 35 will be established. The carbon being gummed to the card there is provided a sealed record of the transactions had.

The invention is susceptible to some modifications consistent with the principle of the same and such as would be within the meaning of the appended claims.

What is claimed as new is:

1. A carbon card index of the nature set forth comprising a card ruled for writing 9 and bearing printed indicia on both sides and including a sheet of transfer paper gummed to the card to provide a seal of the record to be made; in combination with a receipt book or folder, bearing printed indicia and ruled-l for Writing, said folder or book having said indicia on its front and adapted to be folded back to back with said card index or ruled card between the parts of the book or folder.

2. A carbon card index of the nature set forth comprising a card having on both sides ruled lines and printed indicia of dates money is due and received, amount received, signature of collector 'and a number to indicate from whom collected, and including a sheet of transfer paper on both sides of the card, said sheet of transfer paper being fixed to the card to provide a sealed record of receipts for money and endorsements made on the card; in combination with a folder or receipt book associated with the card and carrying printed matter; said card and folder being adapted to be alined in making the index or record so as to enable both sides of the card to be utilized and similarly both fronts or faces of the folder used, the card and the folder each carrying the record in duplicate.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

JAMES O. MCDONALD.
