3,043,493 BANKING ENVELOPE Frank G. Clegg, Manchester, Cnn., assignor to Curtis 1000, Incorporated, West Hartford, Conn., a corporation of Minnesota Filed Jan. 16, 1961, Ser. No. 82,751 2 Claims. (Cl. 229-72) This invention relates to banking envelopes and more particularly to envelopes for use at drive-in-windows by tellers when currency and coins are to be handed to a customer by a teller.
An object of primary importance of the invention is to provide an improved form of fold or pocket for currency and a separate pocket for coins, the currency receiving-fold or pocket preferably enabling the bills to be counted after being inserted in the fold or pocket of the envelope.
Another object of the invention that is important is that a flap is provided at the upper end of one of the panels of the envelope that may be folded over to close the coin.
pocket and be held in place by a portion of the currency fold.
A feature that enables the above objects to be obtained is that the coin receiving pocket extends the full height or length of the envelope and the currency fold or pocket may be of the full length or height of the envelope, the closing flap being formed on one of the panels forming the coin pocket.
With the above and other objects in view, the invention may include the features of construction and operation set forth in the following specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
In the accompanying drawing annexed hereto and forming a part of this specification, I have shown the invention embodied in several forms of banking envelopes, but it will be understood that the invention can be otherwise embodied and that the drawings are not to be construed as defining or limiting the scope of the invention, the claims appended to this specification being relied upon for that purpose.
In the drawings:
FIG. 1 is a plan view of the blank from which a preferred form of the envelope forming the present invention may be made;
FIG. 2 is a central sectional view of an envelope made from the blank shown in FIG. 1, the section being taken oin the plane of line 22 in FIG. 3;
FIG. 3 is a front view of an envelope made from the blank shown in FIG. 1;
FIG. 4 is a transverse sectional view of the envelope shown in FIGS. 1, 2 and 3, the section being taken on the plane of the line 6-6 in FIG. 3.
In the above mentioned drawing, there have been shown several embodiments of the invention which are now deemed preferable, but it is to be understood that changes and modifications may be made within the scope of the appended claims without departing from the spirit of the invention.
Referring more in detail to the figures of the drawings and first to FIG. 1, it will be seen that the. envelope shown therein comprises a central panel 10 and two side panels 12 and 14. The central panel 10 has a gummed sealing 3,043,493 Patented July 10, 1962 ice flap 16 at one end of the central panel 10 and a closing to the outer surface of the panel 14 after panel 14 has been folded over on to the central panel 10. The flap 18 at the opposite end of panel 10 preferably is left ungummed and may be tucked below the folded over panel 14.
Panel 12, prior to the folding of panel 14 and its being sealed to the flap 16, is folded over against the surface of the central panel 10 and sealed directly to the inner surface of panel 14. For this purpose a strip of gumrning 20 is applied to a portion of the free edge of panel 12 which seals the panel 12 to the inner surface of the panel 14. As shown in FIG. 1 the upper portion of the free edge of panel 12 is left ungummed to permit greater flexibility of the upper end of panel 14 and also permit the flap 18 to be tucked below the upper edge of panel 14.
Panel 14 as shown in FIGS. 1 and 3 is of substantially triangular shape and as previously stated the lower edge of flap 16 is attached to the lower edge of panel 14 which extends the full width of the envelope.
The envelope formed from the blank shown in FIG. 1, when folded as described, is shown in FIG. 3. The panel 12 when folded and gummed along its free edge to the inner surface of the panel 14 provides a coin pocket extending the full length of the panels 10 and 12 and having the full width of these panels. The panel 14 when folded into the position shown in FIG. 3 forms a recess or fold into which currency may be tucked leaving the upper right hand corner of the bills exposed so that they may be easily counted. The flap 18 may be folded downward and its left end, as seen in FIG. 3, may be tucked below the upper end of panel 14. This folding of flap 18 serves to close the coin pocket and also may if desired also fit over the upper ends of the bills positioned in the recess provided by panel 14. It may be preferred, however, to leave the bills exposed and position the flap behind the bills.
I claim as my invention:
1. A banking envelope comprising a central rectangular panel having the full length and width of the envelope, a sidepanel having substantially the same length and width as said central panel overlying said central panel, asecond side panel of substantially triangular shape overlying said first mentioned side panel, said side panels extending from opposite sides of said central panel, a gummed flap extending from the lower end of said central panel sealed to the lower edge of said triangular panel and enclosing the lower end of said panel having the same length and width as said central panel, and an enclosing flap extending from the upper end of said central panel adapted to be folded over the side panel having the same length and width of said central panel and tucked under the upper end of said triangular panel.
2. A banking envelope comprising a central rectangular panel, a side panel having the same length and width as said central panel and having the lower portion of its free edge gummed to said central panel, a substantially triangular panel the lower end of which has substantially the same width as said central panel, said side panels extending from opposite sides of said central panel and said triangular panel overlying the side panel having substantially the same length and width as said central panel,
