SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No, 835.095, dated January 26, 1886.
Application filed November 19. 1884. Serial No. 148,305.
(No model.) Patented in South Australia August 30, 1884, No. 483;
in Victoria September 10, 1984, No. 3,832; in England October 21, 1884, No. 13,945, andin New South Wales October .23, 1884,
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM MORTON STEVENSON, of Adelaide, South Australia, have invented a new and Improved Ticket- Holder, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of my invention is to provide a simple device for holding and delivering railway and other tickets; and it consists in the holder, constructed and arranged as hereinafter described and claimed.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a face view ofa holder. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of the same, and Fig. 3 is an end view.
The holder or box A is offlat form, made of metal,wood, papier-mach, vulcanite, or other suitable material, and of suitable dimensions, according to the size of tickets to be carried in it. It may also be made either to be worn suspended on a chain or carried in the pocket.
One side of the box or case is provided with a lid or cover, a, that may be hinged, and within the box is a plate or follower, t, that is pressed outward by springs b, that are fitted beneath the plate and the bottom of the box. This plate has lugs c on its ends, that enter slots (1 in the ends of the box, whereby the plate is guided. The lid a is slotted for the stud e ofa spring plate or slide, f,that lies on the under side of the lid, and slide f is notched on its end toward the narrow delivery'slot g, which is provided in the box end. The opposite end, h, of the box is fitted to slide, so as to be opened for insertion of cards, and this sliding end being connected by lugs c to plate 73, the plate is tipped back when the sliding cap h is moved back, thereby giving room for insertion of the cards in front of the plate, and when the cap is released it will be closed by the return of the spring-plate.
The tickets having been placed in the box, to remove them one by one the slidef is moved down by pressure on its studs, and the slide instantly gripping the upper ticket the latter is forced out at aperture g, and this may be repeated until the stack of cards is exhausted.
Having thus described my invention, Iclaim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- In a ticket-holder, the combination, with the containing case and its inclosed springpressed follower, of the sliding cap having slots which receive lugs on the said follower, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
In testimony whereofl have signed my name to this specification in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
VILLIAM MORTON STEVENSON.
