iDENTIFICAfrION Dnvrcn Specification of Letters Patent.
Patent-.ed April a7, 1909.
i `Application filed October 18, 1907. Serial No. 398,098.
This inventionrelates to lthat class of iden-f tification devices that can be utilized in a varietywof ways for identificationpurposes in connection with grips, trunks and parcels, as
well as utilized as a key ring or pocket. piece.
To this end the invention contemplates a simple and practical construction of identification devicewhich may be in the form of a check, or tag, capable ofbeing used as a baggage check or for personal use, in which.V
means are provided for securely covering and concealing complete identifying matter and` other information. v
`With these and other objects in viewf,`v
which will more readily appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts herein after more fully described, illustrated and` 4 is a sectional view of the device on the line 4 4 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 5 is a similar view on the line 5 5 of Fig. 1.
Like references desifnate'corres ondinoc parts in the several figures of the drawings.
In carrying out the invention in any design o`r for any particular use, the same embodies in its construction' Va holder body 1. i `This body is shown as being of a disk form, but
obviously may be of anyV desired shape, as it is only necessary to recess one side or face' of the body to provide therein a relatively deep keeper pocket 2 which is designedvto accommodate and completely house therein a folding identification strip 3 havingV printed `or written thereon identifying matter such as the name and address of the owner, as well as any other information or data which it may be desired to place on the stri The said strip 8 preferably consists of a ong strip of paper or other flexible material. having a number of accordion folds 4 which admit of the strip beingvdrawn out to a considerable length as well as folded into a small and compacty compass within the keeper' pocket 2 therefor." What may be termed the inner end portion 5 of the strip 3 is preferably .firmly secured tothe bottom of the pocket 2 by gluing or otherwise.
The pocket 2 o ens through one side or face of the holder ody and is designed to be covered and uncovered by a cover slide 6 preferably provided with the dove-tailed slide edges 7 which slidably register with the undercut slide grooves 8 formed at opposite outer edges of the pocket 2 and constituting a'slideway at the open side of the pocket for the cover so that the latter may be seated perfectly flushwithlthe face of the holder body` thereby leaving no projecting edges whatever. y
A finger engaging element 8a may be provided on the slide 6, and it will be observed that the slideway for the cover 'slide is closed at one end and open at the other. Beyond the open end of the slideway the holder body is preferably provided with an attachment ear 9 -having ahole 10 therein to receive a key ring, strap, wire, or equivalent attaching means for carrying the device, said attaching means necessarilyacting as a lock for preventing the accidental displacement of the cover 6.
YVarious structural' changes or modifications, and minor ychanges in the proportion and form of parts may be resorted to without departing from or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention, and I ltherefore reserve for myself any and all forms of the invention as fall within the spirit and scope of the appended. claim.
I claim: p
' As an article of manufacture, an identif1- cation device, comprising asingle-piece body disk having an angular pocket opening through its rear side and terminating short Y which opens through one edge of the body,
said edge being provided with a projecting attaching ear that extends heyond the guide- 'i WayJ is of less thickness than the body and has an opening therethrough, an identiicetion element' that fits Within the body, and t cover that slides in the guideway oyer the pocket, said cover having its outer face Hush With the rear face of the body and having its end curved to conform to the portion of the peripheral edge of the hody that is lo- JOHN WUUSII.
