CARD CASE Filed May 24. 1932 1. Z INVENTOR WITNESS Z5 2/ lum jz'eizizei' 22M BY Wk- ATTORNEY Patented June 20, 1933 LOUIS BRENNER, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
CARD CASE Application filed May 24, 1932. Serial No. 613,308;
An object of the invention is to provide an inexpensive card case which has means to hold yieldingly the ends ofcards contained in the card case, while permitting the convenient withdrawalof the cards from the car-d case as may be desired. The construc tion is such that, whether one or a number of cards is disposed between the covers, the
card or cards will be held in position between 1 the card case covers. I I
Another object of the invention is to provide a card case having a back with two spaced-apart covers extending from the back,
with means for holding the covers adjacent the back yieldingly against cardsdisposed between the covers.
Still another object of the invention is to secure an elastic band to one of the covers,
the elastic band normally extending around the other coverfor pressing the covers in the direction of each other and against the cards disposed therebetween.
A further ob ect of the invention is to provide the covers with grooves in'their outer faces and recesses at the opposite edges of the covers which register with the grooves, the grooves and the recesses being provided for receiving the elastic band.
Additional objects of the invention will appear in the following specification in which the preferred form of the invention is described.
In the drawing similar reference characters refer to similar parts in all the views, of which Figure 1 is a plan View of the card case, with parts broken away to illustrate the construction,
Figure 2 is a sectional view on the line 2-2 of Figure 1,
Figure 8 is a sectionalview on the line 3-3 of Figure 1, with the elastic band disposed wholly at the outer side of one of the covers,
45 Figure 4 is a fragmentary view illustrating a modified form of the invention, and
Figure 5 is a sectional view on the line 5-5 of Figure 4.
By referring to the drawing it will be seen that the card case has a hack 1.0 With two covers 11 which are integral with the back 10 and which extend therefrom, one of the covers 11 being scored at 12 on a line parallel with the back 10 and the said cover having a groove13 between the scored line 12 andthe back 10,- the groove 13 being disposed parallel with the back 10, and with a groove 14in the outer face of the other cover 11. It will be seen by referring to Figures 1 and 3 that each of the covers, 11 has re:
cesses 15 in its opposite edges,'the recesses 15 registering with the grooves 13 and 14.
Secured to onset the covers in its groove 14 there is an elastic band 16, the. elastic band 16 being normally'disposed around the two covers 11, as illustrated in, Figure 2, and
in thegrooves13 and 14 and the recesses 15 to press the covers 11 adjacent the'back' 10 in the direction of each other and for holding'in position in the card case the cards '17 whichare disposed between the covers 11.
7 from between the covers 11 without displacing theremaining cards, the scoring 12 on one of the covers llpermitting of the convenient raising of the said cover, so that the user may have ready access to the cards 17 for withdrawing the cards from the card case as may be desired. The elastic band 16 willsecure the cards 17 within the covers 11, not only when the card case is filled with cards, but also when practically all the cards have been removed, so'that the last card may be held in place between the covers until it is withdrawn therefrom.
In the construction illustrated in Figures 1, '2 and 3, the elastic band 16 is secured in the groove 14 of one of the covers 11' by stitches 18. The constructionillustrated in .Figures 4 and-5 is the same as that illustrated ineFigures 1, 2 and 3, except that, in the construction illustrated in Figures 4 and 5 5, one of the covers 11 is out along parallel lines 19 which are spaced apart and there is another cut 20 which connects the cuts '19 so that a flap 21 is provided, the elastic .band 16 being. disposed in the grooves 13 and 14 and under the flap 21', when a wafe'rf 22 is disposed over the flap 21, the wafer' extending beyond the flap 21 and'being se cured not only to the flap 21, but also to the cover 11 having the said flap, In other respects the form of the invention illustrated in Figures 1 and 5 corresponds with. the form r ofthe'invention illustrated in the other figures. s
What is claimed is: Y 1 .r 1. card case having a back and two covers V spaced apart and extending from the; back one of. the covers being cut adja- .cent the back to forma flap, an elastic band disposed around the covers and under the flap, and means for holding the flap against the elastic band. 7 1 2.
