COMBINED GAME AND SHELL BAG.
Specification of Reissued Letters Patent. Reissue'd Sept, 25 1917.
Original No. 1,141,941, dated June 8, 1915, Serial No. 7,011, filed February 9, 1915. Application for reissue filed December 2, 1916. Serial No. 134,755.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JACOB DANZ, 2d, a
citizen of the United States, residing at Los Angeles, in the county of Los Angeles and State of Cahfornia, have lnvented a new and useful Combined Game and Shell Bag,
possible space when empty, and which willcarry the largest possible amount of game and shells with the least inconvenience, and my invention consists of the novel features herein shown, described and claimed.
Figure 1 is a perspective of the combined game and shell bag embodying the principles of my invention and the parts occupying the position as in use.
Fig. 2 is a perspective of the combined game and shell bag flattened out.
Fig. 3 is a vertical cross section on the line 33 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional detail on the line 44 of Fig. 2.
The leading or principal parts of my game and shell bag are the belt 1, shell compartments 2 and 3 secured to the belt 1 near its ends and the game compartment 4 secured to the belt 1 at its center and overlapping the shell compartments 2 and 3.
The details of the belt 1 are as follows: The buckle 5 is secured to a strap 6 and the strap 6 is secured to the canvas band 7. The perforated strap 8 is adapted to fit the buckle 5 and is secured to the canvas band 9 and the strap 10 connects the bands 7 and 9 so as to encircle the body of the hunter.
The shell bag 2 extendsdownwardly from the band 7, the opening of the bag being covered by the flap 11. The shell bag 3 extends downwardly from the band 9 and the opening of the bag is covered by the flap 12. The flapll covers the opening to the compartment 13 of the. shell bag 2 and the compartment 14 of the shell bag is partly covered by the game bag 4, said compartments 13 and 14 being separated by a line of stitching 15. The flap 12 covers the compartment 16 of the shell bag 3 and the compartment 17 is partly covered by the game bag 4, the compartments 16 and 17 being separated by a line of stitching, 18.
The details of the game bag 4 are as .fol lows: The inner section 19 and the outer section 20 are connected across their lower edges half way up the sides by canvas forming an accordion plait 21, said sections 19 and 20 being substantially mates and the accordion plait serving to allow the sections to fit flat together, when the bag is empty, and to expand when game is inserted. The game bag 4 is attached to the strap 10 at the upper ends of, the accordion plait 21 and from the strap 10 upwardly the edges of the sections 19 and 20 are not connected together, thereby leaving openings 22 and 23 for the insertion of game. The sections 19 and 20 are connected together across their upper ends on the line 24. The straps 25 and 26 extend upwardly from this line 24 over the shoulders of the wearer and downoccupies very little space, that is, it flattens,
out thin and at the same time means are provided for allowing the compartments to expand almost indefinitely as they are filled with game or shells.
The details of construction may be varied in many ways without departing from the spirit of my invention, as set up in the following claims:
What I claim is:
1. A belt shell compartment secured to the ends of the belt, an inner section secured to the center of the belt and overlapping the shell compartments, an outer section parallel with the inner section, an accordion plait connecting the outer section and the inner section below the belt, said outer and inner sections extending some distance above the belt with their edges unconnected and straps connecting the upper ends of the inner and outer sections to near the ends of the belt.
2. A combined game and shell bag, comprising a belt, shell compartments secured to the ends of the belt and extending downwardly, an inner section secured to the center of the belt and extending upwardly and downwardly and overlapping the shell compartments, an outer section parallel with the inner section, an accordion plait connecting the outer section and the inner secwibh*--1d g1 I I outer and inner sections being unconnectecl along 1 their 1 sideyaedgee above th'e'ibelt.Liano'L.
