Of the accompanying drawing, Fig. 1 is a front elevation showing a package embodying my invention, with the cover flap open. Fig. 2 is a vertical section on the hne 2-2 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is an edge view with the flap closed. Fig.4 is a perspective view showing a mod-' ification. V

Referring at first to the forms shown in Figs. 1 to 3, the package includes a one-p ece paper or light cardboard cover 10 comprlsing a back portion 11 whose lower end 1s turned upwardly in a'short marginal front portion 12 and whose upperportion 13 constitutes a foldable front flap, the terminal edge of which is adapted to be tucked in behind the free edge of the'lower marginal portion 12 in the usual manner as indicated in Fig. 3, when the package is closed. V

14 is an inner holder, preferably composed of a plurality of leaves, thicknesses or laminations of paper or light cardboard preferably though not necessarily pasted together and secured at its lower end between the back 11 and the upturned lower marginal portion 12 of the cover by means of'a metallic fastener or staple 15,but otherwise free from the cover. 7 a

The inner holder is provided with'rela- V tively narrow, upright side marginal portions 16 showing as separate laminations at their outer edges so as to simulate paper matches. These portions may either be real matches preferably two rows deep, or the tips may be colored as at 17 to imitate match heads, and

the front face of the upturned cover portion 12 may also be colored to imitate a striking V the' form of a flap integrally secilred sit-its 193i. "se ial, n 537,563.
