Application August 7, 1944, Serial No. 548,392 2 Claims. (Cl. 281-31) This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in a savings bond register in which a complete record ls made of each individual bond as it is purchased.
The primary object of the invention is to enable a holder of such bonds or other valuable certificates to readily ascertain information such as purchase date, serial number, bond series, date of maturity, redemption value, interest earned and etc., without examining the individual bond.
Another object of the invention is to provide a register for the entry of each and every bond purchase and a tabulation in connection therewith so as to enable the purchaser to see at a Blame the total indicating the sum of his investments.
A still further object of the invention resides in the provision of a compartment or pocket on themselves to those skilled in the art, when the following description is read in connection with the attached drawings, wherein I have illustrated the preferred form of my invention. In this form there is shown a ledger having a multiplicity of sheets on which a complete record of bond purchases is entered and it is to be understood that similar records may be made as to the purchase of other valuable papers such as stocks, shares, certificates and etc.
In the drawings similar letters of reference indicate like parts throughout the several views wherein.
Figure l is a prospective view of the bond re later in folded or compact form; I
secured in any appropriate manner a ledger or book 6 containing register pages 1. The book 6 is mounted on the sections I and 2 so that the bound edges of the register pages 1 are in line with the sectional fold line 4. This'permits the closing of the book 6 when section I is folded inward so as to overlie section 2.
' in Fi l.
Fig. 2 is a plan view of the folder in open position showing the ledger or register in closed position and the pocket or envelope for the reception of the bonds:
1'18. 3 is a sectional view taken on line 3-4 of 1'18. 2 looking in the direction-of the arrows;
Fig. 4 is a vertical section taken (in line 44 Fig. 5 is a fragmentary view of the folder in open form and showing the ledger or register in open position and Fig. 6 is an enlarged view of a portion of a ledger sheet showing the various column captions incidental to the registering of savings bonds.
Referring more in detail to the attached drawings, there is shown a foldable backing consisting of sections l, 2 and 3. Section I is hinged or foldable on a single line as indicated at 4 whereas section I is hinged or foldable on a double line as desknated at Ili. This double line told is made for the purpose hereinafter'described.
On the inner faces of sections l and 2 there is The register pages 1 when in open position as shown in Figs. 5 and 6 contain certain columns and lines which are intended to be filled in as the individual continuesito purchase bonds. The identification of each bond bought is recorded by entering into the appropriate column its issue date, "bond number," bond series, maturity value, issue price, total purchases, maturity date," redemption value, 'date redeemedi and interest earned. Also, if desired, and as indicated, the number of bonds purchasedmay be noted.
On the inner face of the section 3 there is secured an envelope or pocket 8 having a flap or closure 9. This envelope or pocket is for the reception of the original bonds or other valuable securities purchased. As the bonds accumulate in the pocket said pocket will expand and project further inward on the section 3. This thickenedor expanded condition of the pocket is taken care of by the double fold line 55 and therefore the section 3 will fold flat over the unfolded section i when the folder is completely closed as indicated Whil in the foregoing I have described the preferred embodiment of my invention I wish it understood that certain variations therefrom may be resorted to without sacrificing any of the in tended spirit of the invention. The scope. of protection sought will appear in the appended claims.
1. In combination, a backing having three foldable sections, a register book secured to the inner faces of two adjacent foldable sections with its bound edge in alignment with the fold line between said sections, and an envelope secured to the inner face of the third foldable section and arranged to overlie the other sections when in folded position.
2. In combination, a sectional folder having a medial base and two foldable end sections, a record sheet secured to the inner face of one of the end sections-and the medial base, and an envelope secured to the inner faced the other end section. the last mentioned end section being hingedly connected to the medial base along a plurality of fold lines to permit the fiat foldin of the section in either the empty orfilled condition of the envelope.
