Application May 11, 1936, Serial No. ‘29,128 ' 3 .' (El. 206-29) This invention relates to match books of the auxiliary ?ap I3 which faces a back 6 of the type now_ generally resorted to for advertising‘ book. Also in accordance with the present invention purposes. the back 6 of the book at the portion thereof op An objectof the present invention is to pro 5 vide a match book so equipped as to substantially posite the lip II is slotted or otherwise formed positively require a complete closing of the book to provide what may be termed a window iii. The auxiliary ?ap I3 is of such a length and is prior to the igniting of a match removed there from. A further object of the invention is to provide‘ 10 a match book equipped with a safety feature in such a'manner as not to materially add to the cost of the making of such books. _ ' The invention together with its objects and advantages will be best understood from a study 15 of the following description taken in connec tion with the accompanying drawing wherein: Figure 1 is a perspective view of a match book embodying the features of the present invention. Figure 2 is a perspective view of an auxiliary 20 ?ap carrying a striking surface in accordance with the present invention. . Figure 3 is a sectional 'view of the book with the same in open position and Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 3 with 25 the book in closed position. Referring to the drawing by reference numerals it will be seen that for the most part thereof the match book‘ indicated generally by the reference numeral '5, and in accordance with the present 30 invention, is contructed somewhat conventionally consisting, of a book member cut from a single sheet of cardboard or other suitable material to provide a back 6 and an integral coverl?ap ‘I. The back 6 at its free edge is bent upon itself 35 as at 8 to provide a channel in which are secured through the medium of a staple 9 in a conven tional manner the ends of matches I0 formed of paper or other suitable material. The reversely 40 bent part 8 is also extended as at II to provide a lip behind which the free end of the cover flap ‘I is engaged as shown in Figure 4 when the cover secured to the‘ cover flap ‘I that when, and as shown in Figure 3, the cover ?ap ‘I is in open position the striking surface I2 is disposed above 10' the window I6 out of view and consequently is not easily accessible. Thus it will be seen that in order to ignite a match Ill removed from the book cover flap ‘I will have to be moved to the closed position 15 shown in Figure 4. As cover ?ap ‘I moves to said closed position the auxiliary ?ap I3 moves down wardly or toward the end 8 of the book for bring ing the striking surface I2 opposite to and in view through the window I6. Thus with the book in fullyrclosed position the striking surface. I2 N) 0 is rendered accessible for igniting the match III. From the above it will be seen that by such‘ an arrangement of parts the match book will have an added safety feature in that the closing of the book 5 will be necessary in order to make use of the striking surface I2 with which the book is , equipped for igniting a match removed from the book. As is now known in the usual structure thereof the striking surface being on the lip II and at the outer side of the lip is accessible whether the cover ?ap ‘I be in open or closed position, hence such books generally have printed or other wise provided thereon, and as a precautionary M 5 measure, a statement to the effect that the cover should be in closed position before striking the match. ‘ Having thus described the invention what is claimed as new is:— 40 1. A match book of the character described characterized by having the back of the book pro flap is in closed position for releasably holding the . vided with a sight window, and an auxiliary ?ap cover ?ap in said closed position. secured at one end to the cover ?ap of the book, In accordance with the present invention how and said auxiliary flap having at a free end there-' 45 ever instead of providing the outer face of the of‘ and on one side thereof a striking surface cover ?ap ‘I with a striking surface as is now movable with the auxiliary flap and the cover flap conventional I provide a striking surface I2 pro into an exposed position oppositev the window vided adjacent one end edge of an auxiliary ?ap when the cover flap is moved to a closed posi 50 I3 which at its free end is folded as at M, and tion, and to a position above the window when the 50 at said end is secured to the inner side of the cover flap is moved to an open position so as to cover ?ap ‘I through the medium of a staple I5 be inaccessible when the match book is open. 2. In a match book including a back member, or in any other suitable manner. In this con nection and as shown in Figures 3 and 4 a strik 55 ing surface I2 is provided on that side .of the an integral cover flap, matches secured to the back member and said back member being pro 55 2 2,118,728 ' vided with a sightwindow, and an auidliary ?ap slidably positioned between the matches and the back and provided with a striking surface adapt’ ed to be positioned opposite said window by a‘ 5 movement of the slide ?ap toward the ‘anchored end of the matches. . i 3.
