DISPLAY SIGN -
Robert M. Meisel, Detroit, Mich.
Application October a, 1935, serial'No. 43,292
'2 Claims. (01.. 40-1138)‘
My invention relates to a new and useful im
provement in a display sign and has for its ob
ject the prowision of a display sign provided with
a stationary supporting body mounted upon
5 which is a display body spaced outwardly from
the supporting body and moveable relatively
thereto.
,
It is an object of the present invention to pro
vide a display sign in which a moveable body
10 shall be so mounted upon the supporting body
that upon a jarring of the supporting body, the
moveablebody will oscillate or move relatively
to the supporting body so as to attract attention.
Another object of the invention is the provision
of a. display sign so arranged and constructed
that the moveable supporting body will be sup
ported in a plane parallel to- the‘ supporting body
and in its movements remain in a plane parallel
to the supporting body.
Another object of the invention is the provi
sion in a display sign of a moveable display mem
ber mounted on a supporting body in such a
manner that it will move relatively thereto upon
a jarring of the supporting body, while remain
25 ing in a plane parallel to the supporting body,
on an axis lying within the moveable display
body.
Another object of the invention is the provision ‘
of a display sign having a supporting body with
30 a moveable display member mounted thereon
and adapted to move relatively thereto bodily
without changing its inclination to the support
ing body, upon a jarring of the supporting body.
Other objects will appear hereinafter.

The invention consists in the combination and
arrangement of parts hereinafter described and
claimed.
The invention will be best understood by a ref
erence to the accompanying drawing which
40 forms a part of this speci?cation, and in which,
l is a front elevational view of a display sign
embodying the invention.

As shown in the drawing, thelinvention com
prises a supporting body 9 which mayv be used
for displaying advertising and thelike. Mounted
on the exposed face of the body 9 is a block ID
to one end of which is attached a resilient sup
porting bar H, preferably made from. spring
metal, This bar II is bent intermediate its ends
‘as. at 12 and the opposite end is fastened to _a
block l3 which is mounted on the inner face of
the moveable display, member l4. The exposed
face of the member I4 carries advertising and
when the member .9 is; mounted in a body sub
.ject to‘jars, such as a bus, street car or the like, the member l4, upon a jarring of the member
8, will move relatively to the‘member 9 and in
the form shown in' Fig. 1 this movement will be
a vertical movement.
The member I 4 lies in a
plane parallel to the member 9 and in its move
ment upwardly'and downwardly, the member M
will move in this plane which is parallel to the
plane of the body 9.
_
In Fig. 2 I have illustrated a slightly modi?ed
form of construction in which the moveable dis;
play body l4’ carries on its inner face a block
l3’. The supporting body 9 is provided with the
block 10 to which one end of the supporting bar
II is connected. This supporting bar is bent
from the edge of the block l3’ downwardly and "
at its lower end this bar is again angularly
_ turned as at I5 and attached to the lower sur-_
face of the block l3’. In the form shown in
Fig. 1 the supporting bar II is connected to the
upper surface of each of the blocks and in the -
form shown in Fig. 2 it is connected to the
upper surface of the block l0 and to the lower
surace of the block I3’. Consequently, when the
supporting body 9, in the form shown in Fig. 2, is
subjected to a jarring, the display body M’ will
oscillate or rock on an axis within itself which
is subsantially midway between the two blocks.
This rocking or oscillating movement is always
in the plane parallel to the plane of the sup—
porting body 9 as the member I4’ is mounted in
such a plane.
.
In the form shown in Fig. 3 the display body
9 carries a block I0 to one end of which is at

posite end of this bar is attached to the block
l3’ carried by the display body M’. It will be
noted that the bar II’ is bent as at [2’. The
function and operation of the form shown in
Fig. 3 is substantially the same as that shown
in Fig. 1 excepting that the display body l4” 55

extends at an inclination to the supporting body
9. This body l4", however, lies in a plane par
allel to the plane of the body 9 and the same
oscillating movement is effected.
In each of the forms shown, the blocks serve
as spacing members to retain the parts in sepa
rated relation but the mounting of the support
ing bar II is such that ordinarily the block
carried by the display body does not contact with
10 the face of the supporting body.
When a display sign such as illustrated is
mounted in position where it is subject to jars,
as in a street car, bus or the like, the display
body which is supported on the supporting body
by the resilient bar will continue to bob or move
so as to attract attention.
' .
It will be noted that the supporting bar in
limit myself to the precise details of structure
shown, but desire to avail myself of such varia
tions and modi?cations as may come within the
scope of the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim as new and desire to secure by Letters
Patent is:
1. A display sign comprising a supporting body
having a planal face; a block secured on said
face; a display member having a planal face 10
opposed to the planal face of said supporting
body and in; spaced relation parallel thereto; a
block secured on said planal face of the display
member and out of registry with the support
ing body block; and a leaf spring disposed be 15
tween said planal faces with its transverse plane
perpendicular thereto, one end of said leaf spring
being secured to one of said blocks, and. the
other end of the spring being secured to the
block.
This is so because if a coil spring or‘ the like other
2. A display sign comprising a supporting body
were to be fastened at one end to the support
a planal face; a block secured on said
ing body and at its opposite end to the display having
face and having a flat surface perpendicular

thereto; a display member having a planal face
tive movement would be obtained, there would
25
be a tilting of the display body-relatively to the opposed to the planal face of the supporting body
and in spaced relation parallel thereto; a second
supporting body which is a very undesirable fea
ture in a display sign of this kind. When the block secured on said planal face of the display
member out of registry with the ?rst named block
supporting sign is extended parallel to the sup
porting body and the display body mounted in and having a flat surface perpendicular to the 30
display member face and on the far side of the
a plane parallel to the supporting body, ,the ad
block with respect to the ?at surface on the
vertising displayed on the‘outer face of the dis
play body may be read at all positions of its ?rst named block; and a leaf spring disposed be

of the display body does not tilt relatively to transverse plane perpendicular thereto, one end 35
