DISPLAY-CARD FoaA PENclLs, sto.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 689,667, dated December 24, 1901.

Application tiled January 31, 1901. Serial No. 45,403. (No model.)

T all whom t may concern.- i

Be it known that I, EDWARD E. BLAKESLEE, a citizen of the United States, residing in the borough of Brooklyn, city and State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Display-Cards for Pencils, Penholders, Snc., of which the following is a specification.

The object of my invention is to provide a display card for pencils, penholders, dac., which is easily and cheaply constructed and at the same time does away with the elastic bands by which the pencils are now com- If these rubber bands are drawn sufficiently tight to hold the pencils, &c., to the card, the rubber usually mars the varnished surface of the article and gives it a shop-worn appearance in a short time.

In carrying out my invention I preferably employ a rectangular piece of card-stock or similar material, one end of which is provided with a bent-up portion having parallel edges. l prefer that the end be bent into portions having parallel edges, so asto be folded up to form an end of triangular or rectangular cross-section. On that part of the card which `when folded forms the upper part of said sec tion I provide holes of any outline, preferably circular, square, or hexagonal, depending on the cross=section of the pencil or penholder to be used in connection with a given card. One end of the article ts into one of these holes, and thereby that part of the same is secured. To secure the other end of the article, I preferably provide a separate piece of card bent at approximately its central portion into two parts,awhich are or may be `at right angles to one another. Along one of these parts this card is secured to the main card by eyelets or other suitable fasteners, the other part being provided with holes corresponding to those in the main card and made by cutting out portions. It will be understood as not departing from the nature of my invention to eliminate this separate strip and make this latter holding device from an integral piece of card. This may be done by bending the upper part of the card into a V- shaped. section by two portions having parallel edges and providing holes in both faces thereof corresponding with the holes in the lower part of the card.

Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 represents a card, partly broken away and of flat form,before being folded. Fig. 2 shows an elevation, partly broken away, of the cardfolded and with pencilsin place. Fig. 3 is asection of the card on line xx, Fig. 2. Figs. 4, 5, and 6 are views similar to Figs. 1, 2, and 3, respectively, except the lower part of the card is bent to a triangular section. Figs. 7 and 8 show in sections modifications of Figs. 6 and 3, respectively. Fig. 9 is a broken section representing a modification of my invention.

Fig. represents part of a card, showing various forms of holes which are especially adapted to serve the purpose intended. Figs.

l, 2, and 3 illustrate the preferable form ofy my invention.

ct represents a piece of caidstock or similar material forming the body of the display-card.

lines shown in Fig. l, so that when folded in to position (see Figs. 2 and 3) said end is of rectangular cross-section of folded portions having parallel edges. In that part of the card which is so bent up holes b are punched in such position as to come in the rst fold of the end of the rectangular cross section.

VWhen one end of the card is folded in this "manner, holes c are provided in the cardbody in such positions that when the folds are positioned the holes in the end flap center with the holes in the card-body proper, and eyelets d or similar fasteners are employed in said holes to secure the end flap to the card-body and lix the position of the rectangular end. A separate card e is secured to the opposite end of the card-body a by eyelets g or othersuitable means. This card e is secured to a in such a manner that it may be folded on the dotted line, Fig. 1, into two parts, which are or may be, when bent, at right angles to each other. In the projecting portion of the strip e l provide holes f, which correspond in number, location, and outline with the holes in the bent-up end of the card. These holes b and f receive the pencils, penholders, or other articles to be displayed, and

One end of the card a is bent on the dotted v in the case of pencils it is evident that the shape of said holes in a given card is preferably made of an outline adapted to frictionally grasp and hold the pencil to be displayed on such card. For instance, if a round pencil is to be displayed it is preferable to make the holes pentagonal or hexagonal, and if hexagonal pencils are used to make the holes round, because by soldoing the pencils will be more firmly held in place in the card than if the holes correspond in outline with the cross-section of the pencils. In Fig. 10 I have shown a card with various forms of holes therein, including circular, hexagonal, scalloped or serrated, and star-shaped, any of which may be employed to advantage with pencils of different cross-sections with the object hereinbefore stated.

In Fig. 4 I have shown a card the lower end of which may be bent on the dotted lines and folded into parts which, with the body, are of triangular cross-section and shown in Figs. 5 and 6, the pencil-holes in this case being in the lower Hap, which when bent into position forms the upper face of the triangular section. In these figures last above mentioned I have shown the holes in the strip e as formed by punching tongues or aps out of the cardstock, whereby when the pencil n is inserted the part or tongue stamped out is turned inward and bears frictionally against the pencil, tending to hold the same more securely in place in the card.

In Figs. 7 and 8 I have shown modifications of the construction shown in Figs. G and 3, 1espectively,wherein the strip eis substituted by bending the upper part of the main card into a V-shaped section and providing holes in both faces of said section corresponding in shape and location with the holes in the lower part of the card.

Fig. 9 represents a modification of my improvement, wherein the bent parallel-sided strip e is secured to one end of the card d by means of eyelets,and the strip e', the exact counterpart of the strip e, is secured to the opposite end of the card ct in the same manner. In this construction it is desirable t0 make the holes in the strip c scalloped or serrated and the holes in the strip e circular.

The display-card herein described is easily, quickly, and cheaply constructed, and when the pencils or other articles to be displayed are inserted they are held in place very securely. Moreover, in shipping, packing, &c., the articles are not marred by comingin contact with each other. These cards are especially adapted for use in store-windows and show-cases and for salesmen to display styles and grades of pencils, penholders, and similar articles.

I claim as my inventionl. A display-card for pencils, pens, dac., of cardboard or similar material having at one end folded portions with parallel edges and with the free edge returned upon the card and with a series of holes in the folded portion coming next to the card, and a folded portion parallel to the aforesaid portions and adjacent to the other end of the card, having therein a series of holes unobstructed and accessible from beyond the same, and corresponding in number and location with the aforesaid series of holes and adapted to receive and hold the articles to be displayed, substantially as specified.
