A further object is to provide a marking band having these advantages which may be made of relatively soft light stock'and at thesame time is strong and durable.

Objects relating to details and economies of the inventionwill appear from the description to follow. The invention is defined and pointed out in the claims.

Preferred embodiments of the invention are illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a marking band embodying my invention applied to the leg of a fowl.

Fig. 2 is an' enlarged transverse section.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the band in extended position.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a modification in the form of the eyelet.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a loop type of band embodying my invention and having the features shown in Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is a fragmentary sectional view illustrating the steps of securing the band.

suitable indicia as indicated at 4.

In Fig. 2 '1 illustrate the band in closed position, the rivet 2 being arranged through the central eyelet and spun'or turned'over the edge of the eyelet as shown at 5. This may be done by a proper rivet setting tool which flares the end of the rivet outwardly andturns it over the edge of the eyelet.

-In Fig. 1, the bandis leg 6 of a fowl.

In the modiflcationshown in Fig. 4, thebody or strap I is provided with an eyelet I .havln'gserratlons in its shown as applied to the 1n1"lg.5, this m of eyelet is in a U or loop-type of marking band wmnumunn.

The manner r setting the rivet is illustrated in Fig. 6 and it will be noted that the rivet is closed over the serrations of the eyelet which effectively prevents any relative twisting or ro--' tative movement of the engaged ends.

V In Fig. '7, the rivet H has longitudinal external serrations l2 while the eyelet l3 has internal serrations M. The band ii of this embodiment is also of uniform width from endto end.

When the rivets are engaged in either of the embodiments of Figs; 6 or 'Fig. '7, relative rotative claim as new and .desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. A marking band of the class described comprising an integral metallic band and a tubular conical rivet struck or drawn up at one end of the band without varying the width of the band, said band having a hole at the other end adapted to receive said rivet, said hole being surrounded by a conical flange over which the rivet may be expanded, said flange having a serrated edge with which the rivet interlocks to prevent relative turning movement.

21 A marking band of the class described comprising an integral metallic band and a tubular conical rivet struck or drawn up at one end of the hand without varying the width of the band, said band'having a hole at theother end adapted to receive said rivet, said hole being surrounded by a conical flange over which the rivet may be expanded, said rivet being externally serrated and said flange being internally serrated.

3. A marking band'of the class described comprising an integral metallic band, an integral tubular conical rivet at one end of the band, and a conical eyelet at the other end of said band adapted to receive said rivet, said eyelet having a serrated edge with which the rivet interlocks to prevent relative twisting movement.
