UN TED STATES PATENT OFFICE. ,HARRY B. DUANE, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS.
COMBINED LABEL AND PREMIUM-COUPON.-
Be it known that I, HARRY B. DUANE, a citizen of the United States of America, and a resident of Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Combined Label and Premium- Coupon, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to combined labels and premium-coupons for packages, said labels and premium coupons being so constructed and arranged that the latter cannot be tampered with until the packages'reach the consumer.
Recently it has become a general practice among manufacturers ofmany goods, particularly in the food line, to issue with each package a coupon, a certain number of said "coupons being redeemable for a premium;
These coupons have generally been attached to the exterior of the package in such a manner that they may be easily tampered with and oftentimes never reach the consumer, or, in other words, the package purchased will be found to be minus one elementof its intrinsic valuei. e. the premium-coupon. To prevent this and to insure that each purchaser of a package put up by. a manufac-. turer giving premium-couplons shall receive the premium issued by suc manufacturer is readily .understood by reference to the de-' scription of the drawings and to the claims to be hereinafter given.
Of the drawings, Figure'l represents an elevation of a package embodying the features of this invention. Fig. 2 represents a horizontal section, and 3 represents a rear elevation, of the label for said ackage.
Similar characters designate 'ke parts throughout the several figures of the drawn the drawings, 10 represents an ordinary label to be applied to a can 11 orother similar package. The label 10 is provided-with an opening 12 of any suitable shape and size, and to the rear face of said label is secured a premium-coupon 13 of a'different color than the color ofthe label, so that said coupon will be conspicuous through the opening 12 in said label. The premiumcoupon may-be provided with any suitable lettering to dis- I Specification of Letters Patent.

tinguish its nature. The label thus prepared is applied to the can, carton, or other package in any well-known manner, the edges 14 thereof abutting the lip 15 of the ends of the can, carton, or other package, so that access beneath said label is prevented. It is obvious that when a label is constructed in the manner described and applied to a package it would be impossible to remove the coupon without destroying a portion of the label and is evident that the same object could be readily obtained without so doing by simply holding the coupon in the proper position until thelabel is applied to the can, carton, or other packa e, when it would be prevented by contact t erewith from displacement;
These coupons may be used in connection with the. labels of packages of any size or shape and can be used on labels already printed, thus dispensing with the necessityof printing new special labels for this particular all of the abels in stock.
Having thus described my invention} I 1. The combination with a label having an opening therein, of a premium coupon held in position by said lab'eland exposed to view through said openin 7 2. The combination a label having an opening therein, of a remium'- coupon secured to the rear of said label and exposed to view through said opening.

The combination of a package, a labe therefor, a premium-coupon of contrastin color inter osed between said package an label, the abel being provided with means for ex osing said coupon to view through said la el.
