its preferred form and as comprising a wallet orholder Ill and a plurality of envelopes ll carried therein, all being of proper sizeand"shape to have war bonds and saving stamp books. placed and stored in the envelope pockets and to have merchandise credit stamps secured .to the flaps" of said envelopes.
The wallet I is preferably made of semi rigid material, and it includes a portion or section I2 which provides the front side or face adapted to bear thereon a suitable titleor-legend l3 and it also includes a rear portion or section I4. These two sections may be made as separate or as unitary parts, and are shown herein as being united by an end part l5 which is creased along the lines 16 to facilitate expansion and contraction of the wallet. A tab ll extends from the other end part l8 of this wallet, being integral with said section l2 and creased along lines l3; and a slot 20 is provided in this tab I! for receiving a hooked end or tongue 2| which projects from the section I. This arrangement thus provides a wallet which is shown as closed at both ends, but is open at both sides. The wallet may also be made without the tab l1 and the tongue 2| thus leaving it open at an end, since particular fastening means around the wallet will secure the envelopes therein, as will be apparent from the following. description. The envelopes l I used in :this combination means comprise each an envelope which is of proper shape and size to contain war bonds there'- in,-and envelope comprises a pair of expandable ends 22, and also a closure fiap23 at its side which is of special construction and includes" a"con-. tiguous gummed portion 24 and beyond that an enlarged portion or page 25 which is sectioned into a plurality of spaces 25 adapted to have attached onto each thereof a merchandise credit stamp whichis obtainedfroma manufacturer or dealer of the same. These spaces 26 are shown as being ten herein, for receiving ten credit stamps thereon. each credit stamp being added upon proof that the holder has purchased war savings stamps or war bonds; and it is also apparent that these spaces will vary in number to suit the particular occasion, and that similarly 'a' plu rality of such portions or pages 25 may be provided for the envelope, in conjunction with this one flap 23 or in lieu thereof.
These envelopes I l are arranged to have the merchandise credit stamps placed upon the spaces 26 of the flap portion '25, and the envelopes are further adapted to receive the war bonds and likewise the war savings stamps therein, and can also receive andstore the customary booklets.
Fastenine means is provided for securely fretaining the envelopes with their contentsin the wallet, and such means comprises a band or cord 21 which has one end secured onto the wallet, as
for instance by a button or element 23, and have its other or free end part turned around the shank of said button and then held clasped under its outer part or head 23.
It'should be observed that this fastening means 4 furthermore includes corresponding notches 30 and 3| provided in similar positions on the wallet l0 and the envelopes II. These notches 30 and 3| are preferably provided on said wallet and on each of said envelopes in the form of pairs having the two notches of each pair oppositely placed on' the two opposite edge portions of each envelope and'the wallet, and so-that all" said pairs of notches will register, substantially as indicated in the drawing. The band 21 is then wound around thewallet so that it will engage in all of said notches 30 and 3|. secure thecontained envelopes in place in the This arrangement will wallet and will prevent them from sliding longitudinally of .eachOther or in the wallet, even if iits t'ongu'e 2| is unlatched or it and the end tab I1 are injured or entirely omitted.
-The notches 30 on this wallet include an enlarged notch 32, provided to facilitate reading the title or legend 33 which appears on the underlying side edge part 34 of the envelope; while the notches 3| on the side edges of the envelopes also enable one to observewhether there are contents 35 in the envelopes or not. The envelopes may also be withdrawn from this wallet by simply loosening the band 21, and may be moved apart so the titles can be readily observed, without any need of opening the end tongue and flap herein, which altogether greatly facilitates the use and handling of this combination device.
While I have herein described and upon the drawings shown an embodiment illustrative of the invention, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited thereto but comprehends other constructions, assemblies, details, arrangement of parts, features, and the like, without departing-from the spirit of the invention.
