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. » _ 20 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 2,119,826 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 2. A check book holder comprising a foldable ing a check book therein, a pocket of flexible material secured for swinging movement to the other end portion of the cover, said pocket being adapted for the reception of an end portion of a blotter, and means in the pocket for detachably anchoring the blotter therein, the last named means including separable fasteners mounted on :opposed walls of the pocket and adapted for in sertion through the blotter. 3.

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 45 loop I5 su?iciently to withdraw the teeth It from the reception of an end portion of a blotter, a said blotter H. The pocket 9 is connected for swinging movementto the cover I to facilitate folding and unfolding the blotter. It will be observed that the end portion of the lining 4 which is adjacent the closure flap 6 is free of the 50 substantially ?at, resilient loop mounted in the 45 mouth portion of the pocket, and teeth on said loop engageable in the blotter for detachably anchoring said-blotter in the pocket. cover to accommodate the closed end of the 6. In combination, a cover, blotter holder meanssecured for swinging movement to one end pocket 9 therebeneath. This is also shown to advantage in Fig. 4 of the drawings. portionof the cover, said holding means being adapted for the reception of the end portion of It'is believed that the many advantages of a check book holder constructed in accordance with 55 the present invention will be readily understood, and although preferred embodiments of the'in vention are as illustrated and described, it is to 'be understood that further modi?cations and 60 changes in details of construction may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the inven tion as claimed.
