(c1. 20etsl Claims.

This invention relates to an improved form of display package for tapes having separable slide fasteners mounted thereon. Heretofore, packages for this purpose have tended either to inadequately display the fastener, or, to secure a greater display of the article, have required unnecessarily large amounts of Cellophane or other transparent sheet material, which, besides increasing the cost, has not withstood the wear and tear of normal handling in a desirable manner. Other difficulties have involved inconveniences in making sales.

It is an object of this invention to provide a package which will afford adequate display of the fastener, is economical to manufacture, and which lends itself to greater ease in handling and selling. The invention will be better understood from the following description and the accompanying drawing, which represent a preferred embodiment of the invention, and in which:

Fig. 1 is a front view of a folded package containing a fastener;

Fig. 2 is a back view of the same;

Fig. 3 is a back view of the unfolded package; and

Fig. 4 is an enlarged sectional view 4-4 of Fig. 3.

The package essentially comprises an elongated front panel l and two elongated rear panels along line 2 and 3, each of which is a folded lateral exten- 30 sion of the front panel and adapted to form an envelope with said front panel. In order to form the envelope, panel 3 is provided with extensions 4, 5 for insertion in slits 6, 'l of the panel 2. A bottom flap 8 aids in retaining the fastener tape 9. Top flap IU is scored or weakened as shown by the line ll to provide an easily detachable tab on which sales data may be written. Preferably such data is written on the reinforcing strip I2, so that when the tab is folded back and held in place by the panel s, as shown in Fig. 2, the data is legible from the rear of the envelope, as well as from the front. The tab l0 may be provided with a hole i3 for filing purposes. When the article is sold, the tab is torn off and kept as a record of the sale.

Panel 2 has a pair of adjacent, parallel slots I4, l5 extending laterally across it through which passes the tape 9, being held in place by the bridge I6 formed by said slots. a point adjacent one end of the slotted panel, through the slots and underneath the bridge, to the other end of the panel where it is folded back upon itself. A transparent sheet member Il, such The tape extends from 2 that of the slotted panel, is laid over a portion of the tape and suitably secured to the tape and the panel, as by means of a staple i8. As shown, the member il extends from the bridge IE to the end of the tape on the inner surface of' the panel.

The front panel is provided with an elongated aperture i9 Yin such a position as to function as. a window for the envelope in exposing to View the portion of the ,tape covered by the trans-- parent member I'i. Only the tape will be visible.` through the aperture, the staple i3 having been. placed out of view. It` will be observed that the package, when fold-- ed into an envelope, provides a compact `con-v tainer for the fastener, and that al1 sides of the envelope are sealed off against dust and dirt.. The fastener tape is suitably and adequately` exposed to inspection, `using but a small amountv of transparent material, and the necessity for handling such material is avoided.

In the light of the foregoing description, the: following is claimed:
