' a large number UNTTD $116k ii ih flltll @f ifffili.



To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, IRWIN HERZFELDER, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Holder, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved holder or box for containing court plaster, postage stamps and like articles, and arranged to accommodate of articles in a comparatively small space, to allow convenient re moval of an article as required and to protect the articles against the deleterious influences of moisture.

The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same, which will be more fully described hereinafter and then pointed out in the claims.

A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings formingm part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts inall the views.

Figure 1 is a face view of the improvement in an open position; Fig. 2 is a transverse section of the same on the line 22 of Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a face view of a modified form of the improvement; and Fig. 4: is a similar view of another modified form of the improvement.

The holder is preferably made of sheet material and has a box body A and a cover B for closing the box body A, the said body A and the cover B being connected with each other by a hinge C and a locking device D, servingto normally hold the cover B in a closed posit-ion on the box body A.

A plate or flap E is superimposed on the inner face of the box body A and this plate preferably forms a doubled-up portion of the box body A, as shown in Fig. 2. Retainers F in the form of tongues are struck up from the plate or flap E, to stand at an acute angle to the face of the plate E, with a view to permit of placing one or a number of superimposed court plasters, postage stamps or like articles under each tongue, to hold the articles in place between the face of the plate E and the tongue retainers F, as will be readily understood by reference to Fig.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed. October 16, 1908.

Patented Got. 12, 1909. Serial No. 457,974.

1. The retainers F are spaced from each other, and are preferably arranged in rows, to readily accommodate the articles without the articles under one tongue retainer F interfering with those of an adjacent tongue retainer, thus allowing convenient removal of any one of the articles as needed.

As shown in Fig. 1, the articles may be of various sizes and shapes, especially in the case of court plasters, to allow selection of a court plaster according to the wound to be closed.

Different shapes may be given to the tongue retainers F, as indicated in Figs. 1, 3 and 4, it being understood, however, that the tongues can be readily pressed inward by the operator after the articles are placed in position, to clampingly hold the articles in place 011 the face of the plate E to allow convenient removal of an article when desired.

The cover B is hinged to the body A in such a manner as to allow of swinging the cover B back onto the outer face of the body A, to permit convenient removal of any one of the articles G, especially those in the upper row. When the holder is not in use the cover B is closed so as to protect the articles against the deleterious influences of moisture in the air, and the holder is made flat, to allow of conveniently carrying it in a pocket without taking up too much room. The sides of the plate E are locked in place. by bent over flanges H on the sides of the box body A, as plainly shown in Figs. 1, 3 and 4.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:

1. A holder for court plaster, postage stamps and like articles, comprising a box having a box body, provided with inwardlyturned side flanges, a hinged cover for the same, a plate lying flat on the inner face of the said body and extending with its sides under the said flanges, and rows of sym metrically arranged tongues struck up from the said plate and ranging in the same direction. each tongue standing at an acute angle to the face of the plate.

2. A holder for court plaster, postage stamps and like articles, comprising a box having a box body and a hinged coverfor the same, the box body having a plate forming a f In testimony whereof I have signed my doubled up portion of the body and locked 1 name to this specification in the presence of in place thereon by flanges on the body, the 5 two subscribing Witnesses.

said plate being superimposed on the inner IRWIN HER-ZFELDER. face of the body, and tongues struck up Witnesses:

from the said plate and standing at an acute GEORGE S. DOUNELLAN,

angle to the face of the flap. LoUIs NEWMAN.
