'fIhe present invention relates to a‘ display card
material, and having therein a series of slits’
and, more particularly, to a display card designed . generally designated ,as 82 adjacent the upper
to exhibit the conventional hairpins comprising
a rounded closed end and a pair of less, said
pins being usually made ‘of cellulose derivative
plastic or other relatively ?exible material.
Heretofore, many display cards have been used
in which‘ the hairpin is held in place by passing
it through slits adjacent the upper and lower
10 edges of the display card. In some instances the
display cards have been so designed that the hair
pin was almost wholly concealed from view, in
others the removal of the hairpin from the card

It will be understood that the drawing is merely
an illustration of a speci?c embodiment of the
invention found to be most satisfactory. Ordi
narily, the display card will be rectangular and
the series of slits parallel to the upper and lower
edges of the card and the individual slits in the
series I2 will ‘be so aligned with the. individual
groups of three slits in the series '13 as to hold
the hairpins substantially parallel with one an- _
other. Obviously, the card need not be rectangu
lar in shape nor is it necessary to have the slits
so aligned as to hold the hairpins parallel to each
II
other.

While .it is important that the tongue l4 should
have a wide lower portion and be somewhat nar
at the lower portion thereof, the width of said
tongue at the lower portion thereof being greater
than the width of the rounded closed end of the
hairpin to be displayed while the width of said
tongue above the lower portion thereof is less
than the width of the rounded closed end of the
hairpin, and a series of slits adjacent the lower
edge of the card through which the legs of the
hairpins to be displayed are adapted to be
