WILLIAU H. CORBETT, OF "ILKINSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA.

COIN-HOLDING DEVICE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 781,810, dated February 7, 1905.

Application filed October 16, 1903. Serial No. 177,236.

To all whom, it nm/y concern.-

Be it known that I, IVILLIAM H. CORBETT, of IYilkinsbnrg, Allegheny county, Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Coin- I-Iolding Device, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which Figure 1 is a side elevation, partly in vertical section, of one form of my device. Fig. 2 is a cross-section on the line II II of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is atop plan view, partly broken away. Fig'. i is a modified form of end cap. Fig. 5 shows a modified form of holder and sealing means. Fig. 6 is a cross-section on the line VI VI of Fig. 5. Fig. '7 is a top plan view of Fig. 5. Figs. 8, 9, 10, and 11 are further modifications.

My invention is designed to provide suitable tubes for packing, storing, conveying, and preventing abrasion of coin by which the coin and tubes are securely packed, conveyed, and stored in packages occupying minimum space, from which they can be withdrawn readily and conveniently.

In the accompanying drawings, 2 2 represent a series of tubes, preferably of metal and of diameter corresponding to the coins desired to be stored. These tubes are provided at their ends with caps 3 3, which may be secured to the tubes by screw-threzuls formed in the caps and adapted to engage threads I I at the ends of each tube. The threads 4: I may be made by soldering or otherwise fixing threaded rings to or cutting threads on the end portions of the tubes. Instead of screwthreads I may provide a bayonet-joint for each cap consisting of a suitably-shaped slot 5 on the cap, adapted to engage a stud 5 on the tube, as shown in Fig. I, or the slot may be formed on the tube and the stud on the cap, as desired. I may also hinge the cap to the tube or provide other means whereby the cap may be easily and quickly removed or replaced, as desired. The tubes, as shown in Fig. 1, are adapted to be set between tube holders 6 6, which consist, preferably, of trough-shape pieces of suitable length to receive a number of tubes and having marginal flanges T, perforated, as at 8, to receive the fastening devices. A number of tubes sufficient to fill one of the holders is placed thereon, and another similar holder is placed on top of the tubes, as shown in Fig. I. These holders are then connected by cords 01' wires 9, passing through the perforations S, and provided with suitable seals IO to prevent tampering with the packages. As a further means of securing the holders on the tubes rods 10 may project from one of them through the other and be formed with end slots, through which a rod or wire 11 is passed, a seal 12 being placed thereon.

In Fig. I show a modified construction in which only one holder is employed. In this case the flange '7 should be made of considerable length to provide a support for the tubes, and the caps l. I at the upper ends of the tubes are provided with perforated caps 3, through which a sealing-cord 13 may be passed. connecting the tubes in series and thence passing through and being connected to the holder (5 by wires or rods I3.

In Figs. 5 to TI show the -aps provided with openings H, having bridge-pieces 15, under and through which the sealing-wire is threaded.

In Figs. 8 and 9 I show the caps provided with perforations It). The body of the tube 2 is likewise perforated, and the sealing-wire is passed through the perforations in the body and cap and the sealing device applied to the wire.

If desired, instead of having a cap I at each end of the tube I may provide each tube with a cap at one end only. the other end being solid or being open, as desired.

In Figs. 11) and II I show the coin-holding tubes entirely incased within the holder 17, which is prefeiably box-shaped and open at one side 18. The tubes 2 are placed within the holder, and a closing-piece l.) is inserted. so as to close the open side is of the holder, and sealing-wires 2d are passed through the holder in front of the closingpiece If). The tubes are thus securely held in the holder, and access to the tubes can only be had by breaking the seals.

I prefer to use wooden end pieces 17 at the top and bottom of the holder and a piece It),

similar in shape to the piece 19. at the opposite side of group of tubes 2. The tubes are thus securely held, and the tubes are not likely to become injured by shifting about, and the holder itself is made strong and durable.

The advantages of my invention are derived from providing a holder and conveying device which is compact and strong and which enables a large number of coins to be handled in bulk, securely packed in a minimum space, and in a condition in which loss by abrasion is reduced to a minimum.

Other modifications of my invention may be made by those skilled in the art, since XV hat 1 claim is 1. The combination with a series of tubes adapted to hold coins, of means for holding the coins in the tubes, a portable holder for the tubes having a recess in which the tubes are collectively set, and means common to all the tubes whereby the tubes are fastened in the holder; substantially as described.

2. The combination with a series of tubes adapted to hold coins and means for holding the coins in the tubes, of holders between which the tubes are set and a fastening device for securing the holders together; substantially as described.

3. The combination with a series of tubes adapted to hold coins and means for holding the coins in the tubes,of trough-shaped holders between which the tubes are set and a fastening device for securing the holders together; substantially as described.

4;. The combination with a series of tubes adapted to hold coins and means for holding the coins in the tubes,of trough-shaped holders between which the tubes are set and a fastening device for securing the holders together, said fastening devices connecting the flanges of the holders; substantially as described.

In testimony whereof-I have hereunto set my hand.

WILLIAM H. CORBETT.
