This invention relates to a document verifying machine and, in
examples, relates specifically to such a machine adapted for use with a banking depository machine, wherein tokens such as coins of various denominations and documents, such as paper currency of various denominations, may be inserted into the banking machine in any order desired. These are tested for their genuineness.
In the case of currency, the sensings of currencies of various denominations are sensed in one area, and the monetary values of the currencies deposited in the machine are incrementally shown on an indicator and are set up on printing wheels.
If it is desired that the currencies be returned to the operator, a switch is operated, as a result of which the indicator and the printing wheels are automatically restored to zero, and an escrow device in the machine is actuated to refund the deposit of currency.
If it be desired that the currencies are to be accepted by the machine, then another switch is operated. As a result the escrow device transfers the deposited currency to a deposit receptacle.
Following this, duplicate receipt tickets are preferably imprinted with the amount accepted by the machine and are issued to the depositor, and the indicator and printing wheels are zeroized.
Should the machine refuse to accept currency or other documents deposited therein by reason of failure to be genuine, or otherwise, the currencies are not deposited in the escrow device but are refunded directly, and no change occurs in the indicator or printing wheels.
