CHECKBOOK HOLDER
Paul 0‘. Morris, Rye, N. Y.
Application December 11, 1936, Serial No. 115,398
7 Claims. (Cl. 281—4)
The present invention relates to new and useful
improvements in check book holders and has for
L)
its primary object to provide, in a manner as
hereinafter set forth, a device of this character
comprising a blotter which is so arranged that
the entire check, including the stub, after it is
written may be conveniently blotted.
Another very important object of the invention
is to provide a check book holder of the afore
10 mentioned character embodying novel means for
securing a blotter therein in such a manner as
to permit said blotter to be readily removed for
replacement when desired.
Still another very important object of the in
vention is to provide a check book holder of the
character described comprising a blotter which is
so arranged that, when said blotter is in use, the
entire area of the back thereof, which may have
printed thereon advertising and other matter, will
be clearly exposed to View.
Other objects of the invention are to provide a
check book holder of the character described
which will be comparatively simple in construc
tion, strong, durable, highly efficient and reliable
in use, compact, light in weight, attractive in
appearance and which may be manufactured at
low cost.
All of the foregoing and still further objects
and advantages of the invention will become
apparent from a study of the following speci?ca
tion, taken in connection with the accompanying
drawings wherein like characters of reference
designate corresponding parts through the several
views, and wherein:
Figure l is a top plan view of the invention
showing same in open position with a check ready
to be written.
Figure 2 is a view in side elevation thereof.
Figure 3 is a top plan view, showing the blotter
in position for use.
Figure 4 is a view in vertical longitudinal sec~
tion through an end portion of the invention,
taken substantially on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1.
Figure 5 is a cross sectional view, taken sub
stantially on the line 5-5 of Fig, 1.
Figure 6 is a detail view in perspective of. a
blotter which is adapted to be used with the
holder.
Figure 7 is a detail view in perspective of the
pocket which receives the blotter, showing same
partially broken away and before it is attached
to the check book holder.
Figure 8 is a perspective view of an end portion
of the holder, showing a slight modi?cation.
Figure 9 is a perspective view of an end portion
55
of a blotter which is adapted to be used with the
modi?cation shown in Fig. 8.
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will
be seen that the reference numeral I designates
an elongated sheet or strip of suitable ?exible
material which is adapted to be folded trans
versely on itself at an intermediate point, as
at 2. The ?exible sheet or strip I constitutes a
cover for a check book, as at 3, and said cover
has secured to its inner side a lining 4 which
may also be of any suitable ?exible material.
One end of the cover I has formed therein 'a
pocket for slidably receiving a stud 5 on the back
of the check book 3, as best seen in Fig. 2 of the
drawings. At its other end, the cover I termi 15
nates in a closure flap 6 which, when the holder
is in folded position, is adapted to‘be folded, as
at ‘I, over the other end of said holder, said
closure ?ap- being releasably secured in closed
position by snap fastener elements 8.

The reference numeral 9 designates a pocket
in the form of a substantially ?at ring of. suitable
?exible material which is secured for swinging
movement in the cover I at substantially the point
7 where the closure ?ap 6 swings on said cover I.. 25
As illustrated to advantage in Fig. 4 of the draw
ings, one end portion of. the pocket 9 is pressed
together and folded under the adjacent end of
the lining 4 and secured in any suitable manner,
as by cementing or gluing. Of course, the 30
closure flap 6 is adapted to be folded over the‘
pocket 9.
p
-
The pocket 9 is for the reception of one end
portion of a removable blotter ill. The end por
tion of the blotter I0 which is inserted in the
pocket 9 has formed therein openings II which
accommodate separable fastener elements I2
which are mounted on the opposed walls of said
pocket 9 for releasably anchoring said blotter
therein. The blotter I0 is adapted to be readily
folded transversely on itself on an intermediate
point, as at I3. Any desired advertising or other
matter may be printed on substantially the entire
area of the back of the blotter Ill.
.
It is thought that the manner of using the de
vice will be readily apparent from a consideration
of the foregoing. The checks comprising the
book 3 are adapted to be readily folded at an
intermediate point which coincides substantially
with the fold lines 2 and I3 of the cover I and 50
blotter I0, respectively. When a check is to be
written, the holder is opened and, together with
the check book 3 laid out as shown in Figs. 1
and 2 of the drawings. With the holder and
check boo-k thus laid out, and while the ‘check 55
2

is being written, the blotter I0 is still in folded
position. After the check has been drawn the
free end portion of the blotter I0 is grasped
adapted for the reception of an end portion of a
blotter, and means in the pocket for detachably
anchoring the blotter therein.
and said blotter is withdrawn from under the
checkbook 3 and laid on the check which has
cover, means on one end of said cover for secur
just been drawn and pressed thereagainst. This
is shown to advantage in Fig. 3 of the drawings
and it will be observed that the blotter I0 is of
sufficient length to blot the body of the check
and the stub l4 thereof in one operation. It will
also be noted when the blotter I0 is in this posi
tion the entire area of the back thereof may come
under the observation of the user. After the
check has been blotted it is, of course, detached
To return the holder to the
pocket, the blotter I0 is folded on the line L3
under the free end portions of the checks com
prising the book 3, after which the holder may be
conveniently folded with the checks therein and
the closure ?ap 6 secured in closed position.
In the modi?cation shown in Figs. 8 and 9 of
the drawings the snap fastener elements I2 are
dispensed with in the pocket 9 and a spring ill
15 from the book 3.
of any suitable resilient metal is secured in any
suitable manner in the mouth portion of said
pocket. The spring I5 is in the form of a sub
stantially flat loop having formed thereon an
choring teeth IS. The teeth I6 are adapted to
bite into or imbed themselves in one end portion
30 of a blotter I‘! when said blotter is inserted in
the pocket 9. It will be observed that the open
ings II in the blotter II) are omitted from the
blotter [1. Otherwise, the blotter I1 is substan
tially similar to the blotter ID.
It will thus be seen that a check book holder
comprising a conveniently accessible blotter has
been provided wherein said blotter may be con
veniently removed for replacement when de
sired.
To remove the blotter Ill it is, of course,
40 only necessary to separate the fastener elements

jacent the closure flap, a pocket of ?exible ma
terial secured to the cover adjacent the closure
?ap, one end portion of said pocket being folded
and secured under the free end portion of the
lining for mounting said pocket in position for
swinging movement, a foldable blotter having
openings inone end portion, said one end portion
of the blotter being insertable in the pocket, and
separable fastener elements mounted in the
pocket and engageable with each other through
the openings by releasably securing the blotter
in the pocket.

detachably anchoring said blotter in the pocket.
5. A check book holder comprising a foldable
l2 after which said blotter may readily be with
cover, means on one end portion of said cover
drawn from the pocket 9 and a new one inserted.
‘To remove the blotter I‘! for replacement, it is
for securing a check book therein, a ?exible
pocket mounted for swinging movement on the
only necessary to spread or open} the resilient
other end portion of the cover, said pocket for
