com PACKET Filed Nov. 9. 1939 INVENTOR SAUL HEA D ATTORNEY I packet shown in Fig. 1.

'of packet.

. This inventionrelatestocoinqpackets and deals more particularly with means for wrapping'za plurality of coins, in such;a m anner as to provide a unitary coin packet in which the coins bare visible. for determining the quantity thereof,

The handling ,dfl small coins, particularly. he cent, is, frequently cumbersome and time-wasting.

At newsstands, candy stands, and cigar'counters much time may be savedandtlie service improvedfif the making of change .isjfacilitated. .It

is,.therefore, a primary objector the inventionto provide a coin packet whereby two orthree. cents I change for.,a}.newspaper',.for. instance, may be I. made in a unitary manner by handing [the cus-z tomer 'a packet containing., the correct number of coins. f Conversely, 'thep smmer may pay.. f r a newspaperwitha coin packetof propeqvalue. 'Another feature of the invention resides in the provision of a simple wrapperin'whlch coins may be'packed in a quick and easy manner.

The structural features of the wrapper also form a material part of this invention, particularly those features which make for a fool-proof device in which inadvertent displacement 'of the coins is obviated and which may beused'inmrmerable times without material deterioration.

With the above and many other objects, features, and advantages in mind, the invention may better be realized from the illustrated forms thereof as depicted in the accompanying drawing on which is based the following detailed sp'eci- I p form of packet.

Fig. '7 is a view of the wrapper blank thereof. Fig. 8 is'a front view of a coin packet of still further modified form. v

Fig. 9 is a vertical sectional view thereof. Figs. and 11 are top views, inopen condition, of wrapper similar to'th'at shownin Fig. 2,

and each of modified form. 7

Referring now to the drawing in greater detail and particularly to Figs. 1, 2, and 3, the

packet comprises a plurality of coins I 5 and'a.

wrapper therefor l6. While any number of coins may comprise the packet, it ispreferred to use Patented Oct. 5, 1943 2; a 1

two, three, or four; .zthese Iqu'antities ithe usual change from afinickelin pennie and-from allwtheiwings .and. pan'elsmaybe providedzthe a quarter of al'dollar innickels; 3 v The wrapper. l6 'is preferablyforme durable-paper suchas-ais commonly-needs for wrapping-coins and-comprises'the frontz'panel member I1,thebottomawingzmember I8Qandthe lateralwingmembers l9 and'20. Betweenr'each of the, adjacent members I I1, is; and' 20, the wrapperi is providediwith 3 side panels" respectively 2i and 22, and. betweenthefront panel l1 and bottom wing .l 8 with a bot-tom panel 23. '1 Between .QO nefaceof, the wrappermaybe provid with 2 indicia to, indicate theynumber vof coins? in the packrgtxand with otherindicia of advertising -na.-

ture.';-Decorations ;may-be applied if-. .desired.f

The other face of the" wrapper is' providedz with an adhesive coating as will be more clearly ex plained herein. It will also be noted that {each wing l8, l9, and 20 and the front panel I! 1 formed with a notch 25in its ultimate upper edge forthe reason later apparent.

In the present instance, it is preferred to make the bottom wing l8 somewhat narrower than the front panel I! and the bottom panel 23'as shown g 1 at 26, and to form all of the panels 2|, 22 and 23 somewhat narrower in width than the thickness of a stack of 'coins to be placed in the wrapper.

When. the coins are to bewrapped, they are set edgewise against the bottom panel 23' and the front panel I! and the bottom wing 3 are r folded upward to be disposed at each side of the coin stack. Then the adhesive on the wing 19 is moistened and said wing is folded to engage with the bottom wing l8 now arranged as the inner panel of the rear wall of the stack as best seen in Fig. 3. Finally, the adhesive on the wing 20 is moistened and this wing folded over against the wing l9 to complete the packet. Inasmuch. as the wing I8 is narrowed as at 26, its edge, at 7' that side, may not be met by the side 'panel'22 during this last folding operation. This insures full contact of said panel 22 with'the coins so i that a pull on the outer panel 20 during folding thereof, will force the coin stack against the side,

panel 2|. In this manner, the panels, H; [9.20,

2|, and 22 are all subjected to a lateral pull which manifests itself as a. confiningforce to hold the coins frictionally and firmly against displacement from the packet thus formed. It will be noted that a material portion'of the coins are exposed to view and if extraction thereof from the packet is desired, they may be grasped and pulled therefrom.

In the form of the invention shown in Figs. 4 and 5, the wrapper comprises front and rear panels 30 and 3|, connected by a bottom panel 32, and each formed with lateral panel members 33 and 34 respectively, Longitudinally of the blank thus formed, there may be placed a centrally disposed strip 35 provided with adhesive on its inside face. Adhesive is also suitably applied to the panels 33 and 34.

This packet is formed by placing the coins against the bottom panel 32, folding the front; and back panels 30 and 3! up against each side of the coin stack and uniting the side panels 33'" The ir and 34 by means of their adhesive. I ends of the strip 35 are then wrapped about the coins as shown in Fig. 4, adhesivelyseoured t each other, and the packet is complete.

In the form illustrated in Figs. 6 and '7, wrapper comprises'theiront panel 40, the wings II andMand the-connectingside panels and 44. An adhesive coated strip is attached ato theiront anel 40 aSShOW'np In, forming the packet, the coins are placed against the inner face-of the front panel Hand on wing 4| folded teen-gage the back. of the:coin stack. The other wing I2 is then foldedtooverlie the wing and is adhesively secured thereto. The strip 45 is then wrapped about the packet vthus forrnezi as-best seen in Fig. :6. r i r If desired, one of the panels-of the packet may he formed, by embossing or the like, with'aseat for the coin stack. This is seen in Figs. '8 and 9 V ing somewhat narrower than the bottom and wherein the 'front panel 50 is embossed as attl, .the embossment be so formedas to encompass more thanhalf of the "coins so'they maynotslip therefrom. .In otherrrespects the'packet may be described.


In order to provide the wrapper with a springiness seeking to inore firmly grip the coins, each of the connecting panels 21, 22, and 23 may be formed with an inwardly directed fold such as 5 shown at 21 of Fig. 10. Thus, when the packet is formed, these folds, seeking to collapse, tend to hug the edges of the coin stack to more firmly grip them frictionally.

Similar results may be obtained, as shown in Fig. '11, .by omitting these side panels and placing .a single fold or score line 28 between the major panels of the wrapper. When coins are l wrapped therein, the edges of the stack will impinge portions of these panels to form creases and-the folds 28 being stressed, seek to stretch the.wrapper laterally to more closely confine the coin stack.

' Itis obvious from the foregoing that a packet formedin any of the above manners, would give the results desired, However, this disclosure does not exhaust the various possibleforms of themve'rltio'n employing the principles'dlsclosed. It is apparent, then, that the invention as claimed should be given a broader basis of interpretation than on the'specific details orthe instant'disclosure which is intended as exemplary only.

What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

A coinwrapper cut from a single blank '0! paper and comprising asubstantially rectangular front panel, an edge panel on each side edge thereof, a bottom panel on a third side of said front panel, a rear panel on each edge panel and on the bottom panel, said latter rear panel befront panels to permit the other rear panels to be wrapped intosnug engagement around coins in the wrapper, 4
