April 1940' K. v. BOSTKAN 2,196,850

COIN ATTACHMENT Filed April 5, 1939 V Z? 70- f a /7 1 IINVENTOR. l. M/Mffl kfiafif/d/f 1 ATTORNEYS Patented Apr. 9, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,196,850 ooIN ATTACHMENT Kenneth V. Bostian, Independence, M0. Application April 5, 1939, Serial No. 266,117

Claims. (c1. 40-2) This invention relates to a coin or token and means for aifixing an advertising element thereto, the primary object being to provide a specially formed sheet of transparent material which has indicia thereon and which is afiixed to the coin so that the advertisement of the payee will be constantly before the user of the coin or token. 1

One of the important objects of this invention is to provide a new article of manufacture in the nature of an attachment for coins which comprises a disk shaped sheet of transparent material having indicia thereon, which attachment may be secured to commercial coins in such a manner as to reveal all of the figures embcssed on the side thereof to which the attach-' ment is secured and in such relation to the marginal edge of the coin as to permit stacking and handling without inconvenience. This invention has for a further aim, the provision of an attachment for coins, tokens, chips fit and the like, which is in the nature of a transparent disk that is divided into two parts, one

face of one of said parts having adhesive thereon so that said part is secured in place on the side of the coin or token, while the other part is devoid of adhesive and forms novel means for handling the transparent disk prior to and as the same is affixed in position.

Minor objects of the invention will appear during the course of the following specification, referring to the accompanying drawing wherein:

Figure 1 is a plan view of a coin or token having the attachment thereon.

Fig. 2 is a vertical central sectional view through two coins each of which has a sheet of transparent material secured to one side thereof.

Fig. 3 is a plan view of a coin showing the sheet of transparent material in place, but with,

one portion thereof entirely removed.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the coin or token attachment; and,

Fig. 5 is an enlarged cross sectional view through the attachment showing the presence of adhesive on one portion of the body.

Commercial coins or tokens 8, to which the disk of transparent material is affixed, has a countersunk area l2 which is circumscribed by a raised marginal edge l4, and the disk I0 is thinner than the distance between-the face of countersunk area l2 and the face of the raised marginal edge l4 so that when the disk is positioned, the coins or tokens may be stacked as shown in Fig. 2.

quired during attachment. For example, the 10' user of disk l0 may be a company desiring to affix their advertisement to a relatively large number of coins or tokensin a short length of time so that as distribution of the coin or token 8 occurs, the ad will be carried thereby.

Portion 22 of disk Ill has indicia 24 printed thereon, and portion l8 has indicia 26 printed thereon which is preferably the name of the producer of the attachment which is to be affixed to coins, tokens or chips as the purchaser sees Transparent adhesive 28 covers one face of portion 22 of disk In, while portion I 8 is devoid of adhesive as seen in Fig. 5.

The line of perforations 2B divides the disk into two parts and when being applied, portion I8 is grasped and bent upwardly as seen in Fig.

4 so that adhesive 28 may be moistened and portion 22 moved to position with accuracy and dispatch. Manifestly, the entire disk l0 may be 30 secured to the side of coin or token 8 and it is preferred to have the diameter of disk I 0 less than the diameter of countersunk area l2 so that the portion of area l2 between marginal edge I4 and the edge of disk III is left to View.

Care must be taken in selecting the stock from which disk I0 is produced, for the thickness thereof must not be greater than that heretofore set down and illustrated in Fig. 2.

Obviously, the concepts of this invention may be embodied in articles and caused to produce combinations diiferent than those set down herein, and it is desired to be limited only by the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is:

1. An article of the character described comprising a disk having figures embossed on the sides thereof; a raised marginal edge on each side of the disk circumscribing a central area on a plane lower than the plane of the marginal edge; and a sheet of transparent material, having indicia printed thereon, overlying a portion of the central area, said sheet of material having a thickness less than the distance between the plane of the marginal edge and the plane of said central area.

2. An article of the character described comprising a disk having figures embossed on the sides thereof; a raised marginal edge on each side of the disk circumscribing a central area on a plane lower than the plane of the marginal edge; and a sheet of transparent material, having indicia printed thereon, overlying a portion of the central area, said sheet of material having a thickness less than the distance between the plane of the marginal edge and the plane of said central area, said sheet of material having a line of perforations provided therein to divide the same into two parts.

3. An article of the character described comprising a disk having figures embossed on the sides thereof; a raised marginal edge on each side of the disk circumscribing a central area on a plane lower than the plane of the marginal edge; and a sheet of transparent material, having indicia printed thereon, overlying a portion of the central area, said sheet of material having a thickness less than the distance between the plane of the marginal edge and the plane of said central area, said shet of material having a line of perforations provided therein to divide the same into two parts, one part of said sheet bounded by the edges thereof and said line of perforations having adhesive on one face thereof for securing that part to the side of the disk.

4. An article of the character described comprising a disk having figures embossed on the sides thereof; a raised marginal edge on each side of the disk circumscribing a central area on a plane lower than the plane of the marginal edge; and a sheet of transparent material, having indicia printed thereon, overlying a portion of the central area, said sheet of material having a thickness less than the distance between the plane of the marginal edge and the plane of said central area, said sheet of material having a line of perforations provided therein to divide the same into two parts, one part of said sheet bounded by the edges thereof and said line of perforations having adhesive on one face thereof for securing that part to the side of the disk, the remaining part of said sheet being devoid of adhesive.

5. An article of the character described comprising a disk having figures embossed on one side thereof; a raised marginal edge on said one side circumscribing an area on a plane lower than the plane of the marginal edge; and a disk-shaped sheet of transparent material overlying a portion of the area circumscribed by said edge, said disk-shaped sheet being smaller in diameter than said area whereby a portion of the figures on said one side is exposed to view and a portion thereof is viewable through said transparent sheet, said sheet of material having a thickness less than the distance between the plane of the marginal edge and the plane of said area.
