cle having a closure covered with a metallic coupon, in which closure is placed a circular giving proper instructions and information.
In the drawingsFigure l is a perspective View of a container showing my im-' proved stopper. Fig. 2 is a top planview of the same Fig. 3 is an enlarged detail sectional view showing the general construction. Fig. 4 is a detail top plan view of the coupon after being cut from the stopper.
In the construction of my invention I provide a container 5 of any suitable 'shape or design, in the upper end of which is formed an opening 6 and a projecting flange 7. Around the flange 7 is securely fastened a cap casing 8 so bent as to form an inwardly Upon this flange is supported a recessed depth to receive a folded circular 11 on which is printed the directions of use, the disposition of the coupon andgeneral information concerning the contents of the container. Over the cap 10 and on its supporting flange 12 is'placed a coupon disk 13 v so shaped asto be perfectly rigid yet of such material that the same can be cut by a sharp instrument so as to gain access to the circular and cap. The coupon is bound in place by the crimped edge 14 of the cap casing 8. On the coupon may be imprinted the brand, age, quantity, manufacturer and Specification of Letters Patent.

other information concerning the contents,
and the specific feature of this coupon is, to perfectly seal the opening so that the contents can not be 't'afi'ipered with and when once removed (which necessitates cutting) the article is not acceptable. The coupon after being removed maybe returned to the merchant and entitles the purchaser to a specified discount. In the cap 10 is secured a ring 15 by which said cap can be handled.
The operation of my invention is as fol lows: After the container has been properly formed, the casing 8 is securely soldered in place over the opening 6, the upper edge of said casing being originally straight as shown by dotted lines in Fig. 3. The cap 10 is then set in place, the circular folded and placed in the cap and on the top of said cap is then placed the coupon 13. After all this has been done, the upper edge of the casing is then crimped inwardly bringing the rolled edge in contact with the coupon as shown in Fig. 3. In this arrangement the cap can not be removed unless the coupon is cut away as previously described.
Having fully described my invention,what I claim is:
A container having an opening; an outwardly projecting flange surrounding said opening; a cap casing secured upon said flange, having an inwardly projecting capledge and crimped inward recessed cap seated in said ledge; a coupondisk seated over said recessedcap, and sealed in place by the crimp at the 'mouth of the cap-casing, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof, I have signed my name to this specification, in presence of two "subscribing witnesses.
