Patented n... 4, 1940 t UNITED STATES- CONTROLLING AND ILLUSTBATING BAND FOB PHONOGRAPHIC DISKS Giovanni Giannino sennell, Milan, Italy Application February 24, 1938, Serial No. 192,292

In Brazil March 1, 193'! 4 Claims.

As it is known, phonographic disks aremarketed nowadays simply in open envelopes so that the .buyer has no guarantee that the disks bought 7 by him did not undergo a great number of repetil tions, so as to be considered as already worn and,

therefore, no more susceptible of the normal lasting of use. Moreover, such disks are never provided with illustrations suiflcient to render their employ more intelligible and useful for the au- 10 ditor, whilst it should be more convenient that the latter could follow the phonic repetition .hav-

ing before his eyes the music, or the translation into a knownlanguage of the words pronounced or sung'in another lan- 1 guage, said translation being very useful for the study of languages by the help of suitable phonographic disks; 7 Otherillustrations of various kind might be usefulor desirable in other numerous instances. II The scope of the present invention is to meet the aforesaid necessities and-"its subject is a de- .vice easily applicable to any phonographic disk, but'iznot more applicable when removed, and, if wanted, provided with "all-desirable illustrations, :5 which can :becollected and kept by the owner for being used at repetition of the corresponding disk. Said device of guarantee is characterised --by a band of flexible material such as paper,

folded on the edge of each disk to be'protected,

80 so as its two folds cover the two faces of the disk mm the periphery until beyond the central label l d contain only ,quite summary applied on each of the two facesaround the hole for the insertion. on the axle of the phonograph and bearing the usual. characteristic indications;

88 aperturesbeing provided in the band, for allowing visibility ofsaid labels, vided for allowing to fix the two folds of the band on the disk so that, when said band should be removed, it is impossible to apply 'it again 40 without leaving a trace of the manumission';

In order to better explain the nature of the invention, this will be described hereinafter with reference to the attacheddrawing, representing as a not limitative example a preferred"embodi-'- ment, but not actuation of said invention.

7 The drawing represents vention by a front view (Fig. 1) and a side view (Fig. 2).

5o In the embodiment represented the control band -foldinlgl edge of the'dislr I, so as to partially cover the two text of the song, or the 'ilar perforation may same. To-this advantage, however, -a series of and means being pr'o- Other indications of exhausting all the possibility of-. thexsubject of the inif necessary suitably strengthened. long strip of paper or other similar increased utility and to pass beyond the central hole 3' of the'disk. The 1 extreme edge of each'fold may bear the matricular number given to thedisk, by the manufacturing firm, and said edge will be secured, e.g., by gluing, on the disk in correspondence to the-usual 5 label 8 wherewith each disk is usually provided already. Instead of gluing, however, any other fastening system might be utilised, provided this should benot reconstructable after the removal of the band without leaving a trace of the abusive in manumission;

1 In order to facilitate theremoval of the band, this may be provided, above the matricular numedg'e', with a perforation 5,, r

ber written on the predetermining an established stripping line, beyond which the matricular number might be repeated so as to render it possibleto find again the band corresponding to. each disk when it bears also the illustration mentioned further. A simence to the middle fold 6 both to'facilitate folding and to allow the separation of the two folds of the band, each of them'being. relative to one of the faces of the corresponding disk. v

It is evident after the above that the disks as marketedand provided with the band described cannot be manumitted, so that the buyer will have a complete guarantee on the integrity of the other valuable advantages may be added. .The central labels 8 usually applied on=the disks indications relative to the registration engraved in the corresponding face,' and said indications can remain visible if apertures'Q will be opened in each fold of the control band placed upon the disk in correspondence to said central label; Each band; however, presentsflmoreover avery large blank space, wherein at will or according to necessities, may be reproduced themusic played or the textor the translation .of thewordssung or pronounced and repeated by the disk-during the reproduction. any kind according to the circumstances maybe provarious necessities or duced on each-fold of the band. To allow the 5 I collection-of the bands bearing the above. indiestidn's, so'as'to'flnd and use production,- it may be suitable to-'provide each band'wlth' an eye to applied on the folding edge,

The further advantages obtainable are evident, as well as derive in the'commerce of phonographic disks in view of the better guarantee. in the purchase and tisfaction in the use.

by this way be provided in correspond-- 20 the same atevery-ire V the incitement which may 1 I 01 course the embodiments will vary according to necessity or will, without exceeding the limits of the invention because of said variations.

What I claim is:

1. A seal for phonograph records comprising an elongated ioldable strip having. free ends, each free end for engaging, respectively, a face of said record,- said strip having adjacent its ends apertures for rendering visible the labels of said record when applied thereto, and securing means provided at said free ends for fixing theJatter, respectively, to a portion of the labels of said record.

2. A seal for phonograph records comprising an elongated foldable strip having tree ends, each free end for engaging, respectively, a face of said record, said strip having adjacent its ends apertures for rendering visible the labels 01' said record when applied thereto, and securing means provided at said free ends for fixing the latter, respectively. to a portion of the. labels of said record, said iree ends being scored adjacent the edges thereof, said securing means including an adhesive located between said ends and said labels, respectively, when said strip is applied to said record.

3. A seal for phonograph records comprising an elongated foldable strip having free ends, each free end for engaging, respectively, a face of said record, said strip having adjacent its ends apertures for rendering visible the labels of said record when applied thereto, and securing means provided at said free ends for fixing the latter, respectively, to a portion of the labels of said record, said strip including portions between the fold edge thereof and said apertures for carrying indicia thereon.

4. A seal for phonograph records comprising an elongated ioldable strip having free ends, each free end for engaging, respectively. a face of said record, said strip having adjacent its ends apertures for rendering visible the labels of said record wheniapplied thereto, and securing means provided at said free ends for fixing the latter, respectively, to a portion of the labels of said record, said strip including portions between the fold edge thereof and said apertures for carrying indicia thereon, said portions provided with means adjacent said fold edge for carrying said portions upon removal of said strip from said record.
