SLIP-FILE.

Application filed June Be it known that 'I, HARRY B. iara, a

citizen of the United States, residing at Canton in the county of Stark and State of ,Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Slip-Files, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to'the accompanying drawings.

My invention relates to a kitchen file or receptacle adapted to hold the sales slip or slips commonly used by merchants for the purpose of recording the-items of a sale and delivered to the purchas ach time a sale is made.

The object of the ii'iventionis to produce a. file of this character of neat appearance and simple and cheap construction adapted to receive and hold a plurality of sales slips or memoranda. "-1

Referring to the drawings-Figure 1 is afront elevation of a file, embodying my invention, a sales slip being shown in the file.

- Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectionalview of the file on the line 2-2, Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a transverse section thereof on the line 3*3, Fig. 1, and on an enlarged scale. Fig. 4 is a bottom plan View. Fig. 5 is a view illustratingone step in thedevelopment of the file from a single piece of sheet metal.

In the drawings, A indicates a file or receptacle adapted to receivethe sales slip or slips furnished by a merchant or salesman to a patron each time a purchase is made.

The file is preferably formed from a single piece of sheet metal bent upon itself to form a back wall 2, front wall 3, and a bottom wall 4. The opposite -edges of the front and back walls are flanged, as indicated at 5, 5, and 6, 6, respectively, to form the side walls of the file.

6 indicates an opening formed in the front wall 3 to expose the total amount of the sales, balance due, or other memoranda that may be Written on the sales slip contained in the file and which it is desired should be exposed to view for ready reference by the patron. This opening may be of any size and arranged in any position in the front wall accordingly as the space for-the total sales or balance due is printed on the sales slip. But as it is customary to leave a space or form in the lower right hand corner of the sales slip to receive the figures indicating the total amount of sales, I have shown in the drawings the opening 6 near Specification of Letters Patent.

15, 1908. Serial No. 438,615.

the lower right hand corner of the file. It is intended that the lastsales slip-received shall be placed on top or in front of those already in the file, so that the totalamount of sales or balance due at any time may be viewed through the opening 6.

7, '7, indicate openings formed in the bottom of the file to facilitate keeping it clean and sanitary and free from dust. These are formed by cutting away the flanges opposite the bottom 4, and portions of the latter at its ends or adjacent to the flanges.

The flanges of the front and bacli Walls are preferably united to increase the strength and durability of the file. For this purpose I preferably bend each flange of the back wall upon itself twice, as indicated at 8. and

9, so as to form a longitudinal recess 10. I

also turn back the edges of the flanges of the front wall to form a ribbed or beaded edge 11, which is inserted in the adjacent recess 10 of the back wall flanges. flanges are then crimped or pressed. together, thereby strongly uniting them and forming seamed side Walls for the pocket or slip holding section of the file.

The front wall 3 may be cut away at its top so as to expose a greater onlcss portion of the sales slips, and the upper cdfre of said front wall may be bent slightly outwardly, as indicated at 3, along a curved line to strengthen the front wall. may he formed in any manner. as with an opening 12, so that it may be hung up in any convenient place.

lVhat I claim is- 1. A file or receptacle for holding sales slips, formed of sheet metal and comprislug front and back walls, the walls being provided with flanges to form side walls for the file and the longitudinal edges of the flanges of one wall being interlocked with the longitudinal edges of the flanges of the other wall.

2. A sales slip-holding file comprising front and rear, walls each having flanges along their opposite sides, and the flanges of one wall being provided with ribs along their longitudinal edges around which the free longitudinal edges of the flanges of the other wall are bent to form seamed side walls.

" 3. A filefor holding sales slips formed from a single piece of metal bent back upon The back wall The opposite longitudinal edges of the back and front walls being provided with flanges,

and the flanges of one wall being doubled twice upon themselves to form recesses to receive the edges of the flanges of the other from a single piece of sheet metal bent back upon itself to form the front and back walls, the opposite longitudinal edges of the said walls being provided with flanges, and each flange of one wall being doubled upon itself to form a rib and each flange of the other wall being doubled twice upon itself to form a recess to receive the rib of the opp0- site wall and form therewith the side walls of the file.

5. YA file holder having a front wall, and a rear wall, each of said front and rear walls being provided with flanges along their opposite longitudinal edges, and the free edgesof the flanges being bent into interlockingengagement with each other to form seamed side walls, whereby the said front and rear walls are supported relative to each other, and the front 'Wall being formed with an opening near itsbot-torn portion to expose a portion of the frontmost slip placed in the file.

6. A file holder formed from a single sheet of metal bent transversely along parallel lines to provide a front wall, a rear wall and a bottom wall, each of said front and rear walls being provided with flanges along their opposite edges and the free edges of the flanges being bent into inter locking engagement to form seamed side walls, and the front wall being formed with an opening near its lower portion to expose alportion of the frontmost slip placed in the 7. A. file holder formed from a single sheet of metal bent transversely along parallel.lines to; provide a front wall, a rear wall and a bottom wall, each of said front and rear walls being provided with flanges along their opposite edges and the free edges of the flanges being bent into interlocking engagement to form seamed side walls, and the bottom wall having cut-away portions extending inwardly from its opposite ends beyond the edges of the front and rear walls to form openings in the said. bottom wall.

8. A sales slip file formed. from a single sheet of metal and comprising a front wall, a rear wall and a bottom wall, the said front and rear walls being provided with flanges to form side walls, whereby the file is closed 011 all sides exceptits top, and the front wall being cut-away along its upper edge to ex pose the upper portion of a sales slip and formed with an opening in its lower portion it'd'exposen. portio-n of the slip near its lower edge.
