. This invention device.

The principal object "of my invention is to provide an improved means that will hold a ribbon or'other insignia, in association with an insignia barian'd a'supporting base.

*Another object -istO mak'e said means simple in construction, so that "the parts to my device may readily be'assembled and disassembled.

The foregoing and other objects which will aprpea'r 'as the nature of the invention is better understood, :may be accomplished by a construc- .tion,tombination and arrangement of'parts such as is disclosed by the drawings and specification. The natureiof the inventi'on'isisuch'as toirender itrsusceptible to various changes and modificarela't'es to an insignia holding tions, and, ith'eref'orepIam not to belimited to said disclosure; changes therefr claims.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is an enlargedperspective view of my insignia holding device with the parts in assembled position to display an insignia.

Figure -2'isan enlarged perspective view of the insignia holding bar on which fan insignia ribbon or the like is placed.

Figure-3 is an enlarged perspective View of :my retainer member.

Figure 4 is a sectionalview taken on the line -4- 4 of Figure 3.

Figure 5 is an enlarged perspective view of my supporting base,

Figured is a sectional View taken on the line i=6 ofFigure 1. I

Figure 7 is an enlarged perspective View of a modified "form ofmy device.

Figure 8 is an enlarged perspective View of a modified form of insignia holding bar and Figure 9 is a similar view of my supporting base.

Figure 10 is a longitudinal sectional View of the device shown in Figure 7.

As illustrated, my insignia holding bar l2 has the usual slots l3 cut therein and has sides I4 that "serve as holding means. An insigniarib- 'bon R is ordinarily wrapped around, or partly around, saidiinsignia bar l2.

Adapted to press fit between said sides l4 and :bear "against portions of said ribbon R is .a re taining 'piate'tfi having the usual slot ll therein. "Struckfr'om an intermediate portion of said plate l6 are preferably two fingers or talon-like mem hers I 8 which, as shown, are preferably side by side, but spaced apart by said slot I1. Each said talon I 8, as shown, has a bulging portion l9 which butfiam entitled to all such m -aslfall within the s'cope of my insignia bar that is opposite therein said protruding "base 23 isheld between extends outwardly beyond the'planeof the cutside surface of said retaining plate formed in an intermediate portion of said talon 1-8. 'Sa'id bulging portion l2 or directly against the ribbon'R if a portion of it is between said bar [2 and bulging portion l9. Each said talon It has a claw orpr'otruding portion 20 which is formedbybend ing the endof said ta'lo'n l8 over so that it extends at an angle 'to and beyond the plane of that outside surface of said retaining plate It to that surface which saidbulg- 19 extends beyond. Thus said protruding portion 20 extends-outwardly awayfrom said ribbon R, and insignia bar I 2. Beyond the end extremity of each said talon i8 is a space 2| left in said plate [6.

A supporting base 23 preferably having slots 24 therein is slitt'e'd laterally as at '25 to receive portions 20, which extend into said slits '25 to thereby fasten said supporting base 23 and retainer plate It together. Said said insignia bar sides [4 preferably by a press fit. It has the usual fastening pins 2'! at opposite end portions thereof.

Since it often is desirable to wear several difierent insignia ribbons R in my holding device, said supporting base '23 may be of any desired receive three pairs 5 of'the drawings I show it long enough to support three pieces of insignia R, bars l2 and plates -l'6," henc'e it has "three sets of slits 25"therein to of protruding portions '20.

In Figure 7 of the drawings I have shown a modified construction of my insignia holding device which is especially suitable for an insignia 'rib-b'onR that is impregnated with a plastic resin or-is made of a firm or hard material. An insignia holding bar '30 shown in FigureB ofthe drawings has side members 3!, slots'32 and also has talons '33struck out therefrom. Each said talon has a protruding portion 35 and directly beyond it is a space 36 on said bar30. The same supporting "base 23 previously shown *bears against said insignia R. The latter covers the front face and sides 31 of said bar '30 and extends across two portions of the back face thereof a short distance so that there is a space between the two end extremities of said insignia R as shown in Figure 7 of the drawings. Said taining plate and b ody ing two talons having unijt portion extendin across said bar, said retaining plate being between said l side members andhaving and a supporting base in association with said retaining plate and between said side members having a slit therein, said retaining plate embodying a talon having a bulging'portion'extending beyond the plane of, said plate atoneoutside surface and bearing against said insignia unit and having a protruding portion at the end of said talon extending beyond the plane of an outside surface of said plate that first-mentioned said surface, said protruding portion extending-into said supporting base slit. 2.-;An insignia-holding device comprising an insigniaholdingbar embodying-side members, an

insignia unit extending across the front andalong the side membersof'said bar, a retaining plate -in association with said insignia unit and betweensaid side members of said holding bar, and a supporting basein association with said retaining plate and between said side members having a -slit--therein said retaining plate'embodying a talon having a bulging portion extendingbeyond the plane of said plate atone outside surface towards said bar and having a -protruding portion at. the end of said talon ex- -tending beyond the plane of an outside surface of said plate that is opposite to the first-mentioned said surface, said protruding portion ex- ;tending into said supporting-base slit.
