HOME TREASURY KIT Filed March l, 1943 Patented Oct. 3, 1944 HOME TREASURY KIT Clair V. Fry, Hudson, Wis., assignor to Brown &
Bigelow, Minnesota St. Paul, Minn., a corporation of Application March 1, 1943, Serial No. 477,674
This invention relates to a portfolio which is provided with a series of 'envelope-like pockets for receiving war bonds or other valuable papers.
The feature resides in providing a portfolio or treasury kit in which War bonds, stamps, or other valuable papers may be stored away for safekeeping.
It is also a feature to provide a portfolio having a series of pocket envelopes for the storage of papers within the same and to provide a cover for enclosing the envelopes which is formed with a pleated back wall in which the pocket envelopes are adapted to be secured. This permits the cover to expand in proportion to the material inserted in the envelopes.
In one form of the portfolio which is designated as a Home treasury kit, the outer covering may be made of strong, tough paper so as to provide a covering for the envelope pockets to protect the same. By means of a cord or strap wrapped about the tre-asury kit, it may be securely tied in closed position.
In another form of this portfolio the cover may be made of leather or other similar material, and a series of pleats are formed in the back wall. In this form o-f the portfolio it is desirable to secure the pocket envelopes between the several folds of the pleats and to provide a cord for adjustably securing the pockets in place. By means of the adjustable cord the pockets may be held in between the folds of the pleated back' wall in an expandable position so that if the pocket are filled with valuable papers such as war bonds, the oord may be adjusted to permit the body or case of the Wallet to expand in proportion to the contents thereof.
Further, the invention includes a portfolio or treasury kit having a series of replaceable envelope pockets. These pockets are adapted to be held between the folds of the pleated back of the cover of the portfolio. The envelopes may be held in place by an expandable cord, strap or suitable paper fasteners having a round head with a split shank. If it is desired, the envelope pockets may be held by any other suitable means rigidly securing the same between the folds of the pleated back wall of the portfolio.
These features, together with other details, will be more clearly and fully hereinafter set forth.
In the drawing forming part of this specification:
Figure l is a perspective view of the preferred form of the portfolio, showing the same in closed position.
Figure 2 is a perspective view of the portfolio in partially open position.
Figure 3 is an end view of the portfolio.
Figure 4 is a perspective of one of the envelope pockets used in the portfolio.
Figure 5 is a Cross-section on the line 5--5 of Figure 4.
The drawing illustrates the portfolio A which is formed with a leather case IIl having a pleated back wall II to form a series of folds I2. The
-case I is formed with two fiat side walls for either side of the case which are formed integral with the pleated back wall II.
The portfolio A is formed with a closing strap I3 which has one end secured at I4 to one of the side walls while the free end I5 of the strap I3 is adapted to slide and frictionally engage under the strap I6 formed on the other side wall.
The folds I2 of the pleated back |wall II are formed with aligned holes through which the tie cord B is adapted to extend, whichholds the pocket envelopes C secured between the folds I2 as illustrated in Figures 2 and 3. As material such as War bonds, insurance papers or other valuable papers are placed in the respective envelope pockets C, the thickness of the respective pockets will expand so that it will be necessary to expand the size of the case IQ accordingly. In the form of the portfolio A the tie cord B may be adjusted in length so as to permit the portfolio A to be expanded uniformly in accordance with the material contained within the pocket envelopes C.
The pocket envelope C is formed with a pocket portion Il which is adapted to be supported by the ange I8 formed as an extension of the back Wall I9 of the envelope. The flange I8 is formed with one or more holes 20 which may be reinforced by the washers 2| extending around the holes 2li. The holes 20 provide an opening through which the cord B may extend to support the envelope C between the folds I2 of the pleated back wall of the portfolio A.
It is a feature to. provide a portfolio with replaceable pocket envelopes so that new envelopes may be provided after the old ones are filled. In this manner the filled envelope pockets can be stored away into more permanent records, while the current pocket envelope C in the portfolio may be used in the portable portfolio which may be easily carried.
A portfolio for valuable papers including a series of individual pocket envelopes, an elongated back wall formed on each of said envelopes adapted to provide eyelet supporting means for each envelope, an outer cover for said envelopes having oppositely disposed substantially at side Walls and an integrally formed back Wall, a series of pleats formed in said last named back wall, a series of holes extending through said pleats, a flexible cord extending through said eyelets in said extended back Walls of said envelopes and Vthrough the pleats of said cover back wall and adapted to adjustably tie said envelopes in place in said portfolio to permit the removal of said envelopes individually or collectively and to position said envelopes in said portfolio in an ex- 5 panded position, and strap means for closing the free sides of said portfolio having an adjustable formation.
