(o1. ‘1334-11)
.w This invention relates to improvements in coin
- holder and retainer and has for its object to pro
vide a convenient combination coin receiving,
retaining and assorting tray.
One of the objects of the present invention is
to provide a simple, e?lcient and inexpensive coin
tray constructed and shaped in suchwa manner
as to frictionally and yieldably receive and hold
an assortment of coins.
Another object ofthe present invention is to
provide a coin holder from one piece of material
and to shape it in such a manner that coins in-,
Yserted into the tray will be held in retained posi
tion in the tray even should the tray be reversed
upside down and held in this position.
A further object of this invention is to provide
a rubber coin tray and holder with provision for
receiving, retaining and assorting coins of various
Another object of this invention is to provide
a combination coin holder and bill fold charac
terized‘by the feature of low-priced construction,
rapid’ assorting of coins therein, and ease of selec
tive removal of determinate coins held therein.
Another object thereof is to provide ‘a rubber '
coin tray and holder with channels devoted se
leotively to the reception and retention of a plu
rality of coins of varying denominations, so that
coins of the same denomination may be kept to
30 gether in a separate group'in the same tray or

provide, in a rubber tray and coin holder integral
means whereby each group of coins of a“ deter

In the drawing, wherein similar reference char

respective views,
Figure 1 is a top plan view of my invention,
Figure 2 is a perspective view thereof,
-Figure 3 is a ‘cross-section taken on line A-—A
of Figure 1,
Figure 4 is a cross section taken through the I15
coin holder showing the manner of retaining
coins of different denominations therein,
Figure 5 is another cross-section‘of my inven

my invention,
Figure '7 is another longitudinal elevation of my
invention showing the coins mounted in position
therein, and
Figure 8 is another perspective view of my in
vention ‘showing the coins arranged therein.
In the drawing, which is merely illustrative of
my invention the various parts of my invention
are disclosed. Conventional coin holders require
the use of extraneous parts to retain the coins 30
therein, which is expensive and in this case the
metal coins contact the metal case and thus give
evidence of the presence of coins in the case when
the latter is in the pocket of the 'user. It is de
sirable to avoid making a coin holder reveal by
the sound of coins rattling therein ‘when one’s
pocket is shaken or contacted the presence of
coins therein.
Awsti'll further object thereof is‘ to provide a
40 rubber coin holder in which channels are pro
vided for receiving and holding coins of selective
denominations, and in which walls and partitions
therein are designed to pinch the coins frictional
ly, after they have been inserted into the channels
preferably of rectangular formation and shape, 40
and it will be made entirely, if need be, from
some soft, yieldable, pliable material such as rub
ber or rubberized material. The device is molded
45 as a means of retention of the coins in the tray.

A ?nal purpose of the present invention is to
provide a rubber coin tray from a single piece
of rubber material shaped and constructed‘ to
provide parallel channels with common partition

that distortion of the ewalls and partitions of the
rubber tray is necessary in order to fully insert
the coins to be retained, whereby the walls and
partitions will be distended to admit the coin,
A series of parallel channels are provided, to
provide the chambers l2, l3, ‘l4 and I5 respec

provided if need be. . ll designates the inner end
of the rubber coin holder or tray, for convenience 50
in reference. It will be seen that each pair of
chambers extend in longitudinal'groups, such that
chamber “is in back of chamber l2 while cham
ber I5 is in back of chamber l3 and alongside
chamber Ill. The side walls of the tray I 0 are 55
formed concave in cross-section as at l8 and I9
respectively and the upper edges thereof may be
rounded as at 20 to provide beads which book

the bottom being designated M.
There is a partition extending medially and
longitudinally of the tray, the inner length of
which is made wider as at 2| where it forms a
common boundary wall between coi’n chambers
10 I2 and I3, whilst the main length of the parti
tion, designated 22 separates the coin chamber
H from IS. The result of the varying thickness
of this partition, and the fact that partition por
tion 22 is more on one side of the center than at
16 the other side thereof, as is the length 2| of
the partition, is that the widths of the various
chambers vary. Thus chamber I2 is made of a
thus assuming an oblique position with relation to
the longitudinal axis of the coin tray.
The inclined face of the ledges 24 and 28 in
the chambers I 4 and I! are designated .21. There
may be a bottom lining of rigid material desig
nated 2| underlying the rubber tray, to render
the bottom more rigid and less ?exible, besides
It is to be remembered that the width of any
of the channels or chambers is made predeter 10
minatedly of a slightly lesser width than the
diameter of the coin intended for lodgment
therein, and because of this it is necessary to
press each coin in its proper chamber with a
press ?t until it snaps down in oblique position in 15
this chamber, and as the coin is thus inserted

size to receive and hold nickels, chamber I3 will I tition extendinglongitudinally of the holder is

20 ceive and hold quarters, while chamber I 5 will
receive and hold dimes.
The opposite sides of the partition are also
formed concave in cross section designated l1, l8
where grooves are provided, and the opposing
25 upper edges of the partition may be rounded as
shown in Fig. 3. The rear end 21' of the coin
tray has its inner surface, on opposite sides of
the partition sloping or inclining downwardly, so
that in the chamber i4 for receiving quarters, the
30 inclined ledge or shelf 23 is provided, while in
chamber 15 inclined shelf 26 is provided, and also
in chamber l2 there is a transverse partition 21"
having a downwardly sloping or inclining shelf or
ledge 24, and a similar transverse ledge or shelf
35 25 dividing chambers l3 and I5 longitudinally;
ledge,or shelf 24 divides chambers l2 and I4
longitudinally as well.. The upper surfaces of the
ledges 24 and 25 will preferably be made concave
if desirable, to conform the better to the periph
eral edge of the coin lodged here and resting upon
this shelf. It will also be seen from Figures 6
and '7 that the shelves 24 and 25 also incline up
wardly and rearwardly from the bottom of the
’ tray in chamber l5, and this applies also to shelf
45 24 similarly inclining in chamber l4. As a result
of this angular disposition and formation of the
various-shelves 23, 24, 25 and 26 it will be seen
that when the ?rst coin is inserted into‘any chan
nel or chamber it will be laid ?at on its back and
caused to rest upon the adjacent inclined shelf
pinched and distended and distorted sufficiently
to yield before the presence of the coin, and in 20
this manner the partition and side wall of the
rubber tray alone will be adequate to frictionally
and yieldably as well as detachably receive and re—
tain each coin. The several coins of each de
nomination of coins such as nickels, dimes, pen 25
nies and quarters are each inserted so as to lie
on top of each other, the concave faces l6, H, II
and I! of the tray being adapted to the rounded
con?guration of the particular coin mounted in
any particular chamber. The coins are thus 30
nested in overlapping relation, each coin partial
ly projecting slightly above the top face of the
tray so it may be readily grasped by the finger
of the user and removed or inserted. I do not 35
mean to con?ne myself to the exact details of
construction save as pointed out in the appended
What I desire to claim and secure by patent
An all-rubber container for coins being formed
with longitudinally spaced apart channels the
walls of which are sufficiently resilient to fric
tionally pinch coins disposed therebetween with
an intermediate partition and end walls, the end
walls having their inner faces formed with oblique
parallel surfaces, the partition having its opposing
faces obliquely inclined in the same direction as
the end walls.
