To all whom it may con/cern.-

Be it known that I, JOHN T. DOHERTY, of Cambridge, in the county of Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented ycertain new and useful Improvements in Conductors Money-Belts, of which the following is a specication.

Myinvention relates to an improvement in conductors money-belts, and has for its object to provide a serviceable and suitable means for carrying among other things receptacles for money, checks, &c.

My invention consists in certain novel features of construction and arrangement of parts which will be fully hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the claims. l

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings and the characters marked thereon, which form a part of this specication, like characters designating like parts or features, as the case may be, wherever they occur.

The larger box, b, is intended for dimes and nickels, the smaller box, b', for quarters and half dollars. The covers, c, are provided with theflugs, c2, and the boxes, b b with the springs, c', arranged tobear upon the lugs, c2. This arrangement serves to retain the covers in closed or open position.

A pocket, b4, 'for bills is formed integral with the belt by turning up a Hap, Z910, formed when the belt is cut out, upon the main part of the belt, and securing itthereto by seams, 12, 12, at either end of said iiap. rI lhe box, b2, is designed for. checks, and has a cover, c6, of a constructionand arrangement like the covers, c. cular opening at the top of its front side for convenience in drawing checks from the box.

The` strap, a', is provided with a detachable box, b3, to hold a punch, h, which is secured to the strap by a chain, h.

Having thus explained the nature of my invention and described a way of constructing and using the same, though without attempting to set forth all of the forms in which it may be made, or. all of the modes of its use, what I' claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent,
