To provide for maximum re-enforcement safe body, so that it may not interfere with the removal of deposited articles by way of the main door 8.

The rotary door may be constituted of a'cyllndrical metal member (Fig. 2) grooved-longi tudinally to provide a pocket 32 for receiving articles to be deposited. The ends of the-groove or pocket may be closed by means of a pair of end caps 33 and 34 which may be secured to the door in any known manner, such as by driving them onto'the door ends and applying a pin or the like 35 (Fig. 3). It is to be observed that the groove or pocket 32 is .so formed in' the material of the door as to leave" sufiicient weight at the bottom portion to cause the door to always assume a normal position at which the groove is uppermost, and therefore always receptive of articlesto be deposited. p g

One of the endflplates, for example 33, has associated therewith a handle means wherebythe door may be rotated axially upon its supports 3031. The handle means may comprise a shaft 36 one end 31 of which is squared or otherwise fitted into the end cap 33 so as to preclude relative rotation thereof. The other end of the shaft carries a handwheel or handle member 3'7. I The shaft may pass through a bushing 38 which rotatably receives it. The bushing may threadedly engage a threaded opening 39 in the wall 40. The opposite wall 41 suitablysupports an adjustable stud 42 whose inner end 39 enters a depression or opening 43 in the end cap 34.

From the foregoing it will ,readily'beunderstood that articles may be deposited by way of the rotary door by simply dropping' the articles through the aperture 7 and into 'the door pocket 32, whereupon the handle 37 maybe manually actuated for rotating the door about its supports and thereby empty the contents of the pocket into the main receptacle of the depository. The manner in which the rotary door is co-related with the surrounding elements, insures the contents of'the safe-against removal through the receiving aperture '7. Q s

The mechanism indicated generally by the character 45 is simply a second receiving means for articles to be deposited, but the details thereof are not pertinent to the invention set forth herein and therefore need not bedescribed.

It is to be observed that'assembly of the rotary door mechanism is' extremely simple and easy, it being only necessary to place the complete cylinder comprising the elements 16, 33, 34 and 35 in position, inserting from below. Then assemble parts 36, 3'7, and 38 into a unit and insert into threaded hole 138. Then'insert screw 42 at the other end, after which the parts 18,

23 and 25 are placed in position as previously described.

It is to be understood that various modifications and changes may be made in the structural details of the device, within the scope of the appended claims, without departing from the spirit or the invention. What is claimed is:

1. In combination a hollow safe body having a deposit receiving aperture communicative with the safe interior, a rotary door normally substantially closing the receiving aperture, means rotatably supporting the door adjacent to the receiving aperture, an abutment fixed relative to the safe body interiorlythereof and disposed adjacent to therotary door, a removable abut- -.ment member located interiorly of the safe body opposite said fixed abutment whereby to provide a constricted passageway between the door and the safe interior so as to preclude forcible projection oi the door into the safe interior upon displacementof the rotary door supporting means-and securing means disposed wholly within the safe interior for maintaining the removable abutment member in position opposite said fixed abutment.

'2. In combination a hollow safe body having a main door opening through which the contents of the safe may be removed and a separate deposit receiving aperture communicative with the safe interior,'a rotary door' normally sub stantially closing, the receiving aperture," means rotatably supporting the door adjacent to the receiving aperture, an abutment fixed relative to the safe body interiorly thereof anddisposed adjacent tothe rotary door, a removableabutinent member located interiorly of the safe body and opposite said fixed abutment whereby to provide a constricted passageway between the door and the safe interior so as to preclude forci ble projection of the door into the safe interior upon displacement of the rotary door supporting means, and securing means ior maintaining the removable abutment member in position said 'securing means being disposed wholly within the safe body and accessible through the main door opening. r I

' 3. In combination a hollow safe body having a deposit receiving aperture communicative with the safe interior, a rotary door normally substantially closing the receiving aperture, the door being disposed wholly within the confines of the safe body, means accessible fromthe exterior 4. In combination a hollow safe: body having a deposit receiving aperture communicative with the safe interior, a. rotary door disposeed wholly within the body of the safe for normally" substantially closing the receiving aperture, the door being drum-shaped and larger in diameter than the width of the receiving aperture at the mouth of said aperture, means accessible from the exterior of the safe body for rotatably supporting the door adjacent .to the receiving aperture, and 'meansin the form of abutments carried by the safe body for precluding displacement of the rotary door in the direction of the receiving aper ture upon displacement of the door'supporti'ng means. I

' 5. In combinatioma safe body having a main door opening through-which the contents of the safe maybe removed and a separate deposit reclosing the aperture, means rotatably supporting iis the door adjacent to the receiving aperture the door being larger than the aperture to preclude forcible removal of the rotary door through the receiving aperture, and abutments carried by the safe body and located adjacent to the rotary door to preclude forcible displacement of the rotary door into the safe body, at least one of said abutments being removable by insertion of a tool through the main door opening, for the purpose of removal and replacement of the rotary door by Way of the main door opening.

6. In combination, a safe body having a main door opening through which the contents of the safe may be removed and a separate deposit receiving aperture communicative with the safe interior, a rotary door normally substantially closing the receivingaperture, means rotatably supporting the door adjacent to the receiving aperture, and means in the form of abutments carried by the safe body for precluding bodily displacement of the rotary door in the direction of the receiving aperture and in the direction of the safe body interionat least one of said abutments being removable to permit dropping of the door into the interiorof the safe body.

7. In combination, a safe body having a main door opening through'which the contents of the safe may be removed and a separate deposit receiving aperture communicative with the safe interior, a rotary door normally substantially closing the receiving aperture the door being larger than the aperture to preclude forcible removal of the rotary door through the receiving aperture, and means including a removable abutment member fixed to the safe interior for limiting the extent to which the rotary door may be forced toward the safe interior, said abutment member being removable to permit displacement of the rotary door into the safe body interior.

8. In combination a hollow safe body having a deposit receiving aperture communicative with the safe interior, a rotary door built into the safe body and normally substantially closing the receiving aperture, means rotatably supporting the door adjacent to the receiving aperture, and means in the form of abutments carried by the safe body for precluding displacement of the rotary door in the direction of the safe interior upon displacement of the door supporting means, at least one of said abutments being removable by the use of a tool applied interiorly of the safe body.

9. In combination a hollow safe body having a deposit receiving aperture communicative with the safe interior, a rotary door normally substantially closing the receiving aperture, means rotatably supporting the door adjacent to the receiving aperture, and means in the form of abutments carried by the safe body for precluding displacement of the rotary door in the direction of the safe interior and in the direction of the receiving aperture upon displacement of the door supporting means, at least one of said abutments being removable only when the safe is open, to permit bodily removal of the rotary door in the direction of the safe interior, the other abutments at all times precluding removal of the rotary door in the opposite direction.

10.
