J Be it'knownthat I, JULIAN CHANDLER Arrmmson, a citizen of the United States residat Richmond, in the county of Ilenrico and State of Vir f a, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Coin-Holding Cards; and I do hereby declare the followof the .inventlon, we

the back and front'of equal stren hand stifl' n'ess, with a, cemented, margina 1 round the card,v 'ving eater stre hto-its edges and lesseni i ig the abilit to t g brokeni a For mailing coin prefer to 'vide the coinreceiving space by a transversesbar 8 ofadhesive substance, and thus adapt the card for different sizes of coins and prevent the smaller coins from mo about or'rattling between the walls. This 1s especially advantageous when itisdes'ired to send a fifty-cent coin and 'a-twenty-five-cent or'dime coin in the same card; but in cards for church or sinfilar collections the division-bar may be dispensed w1th, making the card a tithe-gatherer. For

this purpose my improved coin-'oarrieris advantageous in allowing'nickels and dlmes or fifty and twenty five cent coins to be sent in the same card, providing thereby a convening of the parts at the fold. The advantage of making the blank of stiff paper is that it cannot be bent without breakm it, and there fore the unauthorized remova of the coin cannot be effected .by bending the carrier at the opening. The advantage of usin the adhesive material along the folded e ge is that it forms an unbroken cemented border surrounding an embossed or raised panel, between the walls of which the coin is confined, and this is a feature of my invention in a coincarrier of two equalparts closed by one fold and in which each part has a raised surface standing toward each other, making them thereby both the same. stiffness around the inclosed space and giving each a clamping function upon the com.

I claim- .w A coin-carrier ofstiif paper, square form 'and folded in two equal parts, one part rovided with an adhesive substance aro'un its 1 edges including the edge at which the fold 1s made forming thereby a continuous united border; inclosmg a space, one of said folded arts having one or more openings adapted fbr the insertion of a coin, and 'both to ded parts having an embossed or raised surface standing toward each other and bounded by said adhesive border thereby giving each fold the same stiffness and clamping function upon the coin.

In testimony'whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
