DESIGN FOR A PATTERN FOR BANK-NOTE PAPER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 24,809, dated October 29, 1895.
Application filed January 10, l 894. Serial No. 496,434. Term of patent '7 years.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, FRANCIS XAVIER SIMON, a citizen of the United States, residing at San Francisco, in the county of San Francisco and State of California, have invented and produced a new and original Design for Bank- Note Paper, &c.; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the artto which it appertainsto make and use the same.
My design relates toa pattern to be placed on the surface of bank-note paper, the.
In the annexed figure of drawing the design is clearly illustrated.
The leading feature of the design consists in parallel rows of circular spaces A. The spaces A in one row, instead of being directly opposite (either vertically or horizontally, as the case may be) the spaces A in the next adjacent row, are opposite the contacting or tangential portions of two contiguous spacesin said next adjacent row. Each space A is bounded by two concentric circular lines, an outer line a and an inner line a, the wid th between the two lines being sufficiently wide to receive suitable ornamentation. The outer boundarylines a of adjacent circular spaces A in the same row are in contact with each other at points in lines passing through the centers of the several spaces, as shown. The different rows are located at short distances apart. The interior spaces 13, which are surrounded by the several spaces A, provide panels, upon which are placed suitable ornamental figures. 5
Above each space A is a space or panel C, which is curved concentrically with space A and which extends from the boundary-line a of the next space A on the right until it meets the outer boundary-line of the next panel C at the left. Below each space A is another panel D, similar to panel C, which is likewise curved concentrically with space A and which extends from the boundary-line a, of the next space A on the left until it meets the outer boundaryline of the next panel D at the right.
The various panels 0 and D substantially fill the intervals between the rows of spaces A, excepting that in consequence of the proximity of each panel C to two panelsD D at a point opposite to where said two panels D meet and appear to overlap each other and the proximity of each panel D to two panels C C at a point opposite to where said two panels C meet and appear to overlap each other a row of triangular forms or spaces is provided at E E, which merge into each other and are filled with ornamental figures delineated therein.
What I claim is- The design for bank note paper, substantially as herein shown and described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
