8 Claims.
(Cl. 282—3)
This invention relates to improvements in
transfer sheet holders, and is designed particu
larly for use in co-operation ‘with fan fold mani
folding forms in counter sales books and auto;

holder.
Fig. 2 is a partial plan view of a writing plate
with fan fold forms, transfer sheet, and holder

in operating position thereon.
‘
‘
It is‘ required in many‘ merchandising systems
that the original sales slip and a copy or two or
more copies other than the original, be attached‘
together after the sales record is made, and that
10* this attached relation shall continue during the
passage of the sales record through one or more
departments of the store. This method of having two or more sales record copies attached to
‘ each other ‘is now accomplished in salesbooks put
. 161 up ‘in bound book form and ‘stapled or sewed to
gether at one end, with means of putting carbons
in one of the other ends or sides.
‘It is an object of this invention to- provide
‘means for‘ retaining a transfer sheet, or sheets,
20.x in an autographic register or continuous form
salesbook, where the sheets are not bound to
gether in book form, but consist of an. endless
zig~zag pack of forms folded both longitudinally
‘ r and transversely into one continuous pack and
25.. drawn over a writing plate on which are at
tached ‘the transfer sheets. This form of book
has, to my knowledge, never been manufactured
heretofore, except by myself.
A further object of this invention is to provide,
30‘. in co-operation with a writing plate or table of
a counter salesbook, or autographic register, sup
porting means for one or more transfer sheets
, which will securely support and hold the transfer
sheets‘ between the upper and lower sheets of a
' 35; set of folded zig-zag forms, which will also serve
as a guide for the forms, and which will permit
movement of the forms While retaining the trans
fer sheets in position.
These, and other objects and advantages of this
4.0.‘ invention, will be more completely disclosed ‘and
described in the following speci?cation, the ac
companying drawing, and the appended claims.
Broadly, this invention comprises, in co-opera
tion with a writing plate having oppositely dis
45 posed bearing elements, two spaced strip mem‘bers secured together at one end, one of the
members being longer than the other, the longer
of said members being adapted to be received and
removably engaged in the bearing elements, and
50 a transfer sheet provided with means for remov
able engagement on the shorter of said strip
members.
_
A preferred embodiment of this invention is
‘ illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in
55 which:—
Fig. 3 is a partial plan View of a transfer sheet
attached on the holder.
Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view, taken on the
line 4-4 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is a back or underside view of a transfer
sheet engaged on the holder.
‘
Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 5 with the holder
removed.
‘
Fig. '7 is a diagrammatic view of a zig-zag
folded manifold form pack.’
Fig. 8 is a cross sectional view, taken on the
line 8-43 of Fig. 2,‘ and
Fig. 9 is a longitudinal sectional view, taken on.
the line 9—9 of Fig. 2.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, in
which like numerals refer to like parts through
out:-—
.
A writing plate, or table I is provided with a
slot 2 through which a set of zig-zag folded mani
folding forms 3 may be drawn onto the plate or
table I. The forms 3 are formed from a continu
ous strip which is divided into individual forms
by transverse lines of Weakness 4 and folded on
its longitudinal center line 5 to provide an upper
or original sheet 6 and‘a lower or copy sheet 1.
The writing plate I is also provided with oppo
sitely disposed ears or lugs‘ 8 formed with open
ings 9 for receiving tapered end portions l0 and
II of a transfer sheet holder l2. The transfer
sheet holder 12 is made up of two relatively nar
row strips 13 and I4, preferably of spring metal,
spaced from each other by means of a. spacer I E’
and secured together at one end II by any suit
able means, such as welding.
The members 13 and M are spaced from each
other by the spacer II’ to provide a channel or
passage l2’ for the transfer sheet l5 and a form
sheet 6, as best shown‘in Figs. 8 and 9.
In using the holder for attaching a transfer
sheet on the strip l4 and also for inserting the
upper sheet 6 of the form 3 between the strips
[3 and Hi, the strips l3 and I4 may be spread
apart, as indicated by dotted linesin Fig. 1.
A transfer sheet I5 is provided near its top
edge IS with a plurality of paired slots or open 50
ings H. The transfer sheet I5 is secured on the
holder l2 by inserting the blade or strip [4 in
the openings H, as indicated in Fig. 5. The por
tion l8 of the transfer sheet l5 above the blade
“I is folded over the blade I4 on the line l9, as 55

indicated in Figs. 3, 5, and 8. The blade, or strip
I4, is shorter than the blade or strip I3, as indi
cated in Figs. 1, 5, and 9, and when the blade I4,
with the transfer sheet I5 attached thereon, is
inserted between the sheets 6 and ‘I of the form
3, the end 20 of the blade I4 clears the fold 5
of the form 3, as indicated in Fig. 9. The end
II of the holder I2 and the end III of the blade
the lower member being formed with a tapered
end portion and a rounded end portion, the ta
pered end portion of said lower member being
?xedly secured to a tapered end portion of said
upper member, said lower member being shorter
than said upper member, whereby the tapered
end of said upper member opposite the secured
end extends beyond the rounded end of said
I3 are then inserted in the openings 9 of the
ears 8. With the holder I2 thus engaged in the
lower member.
4. In combination, in a counter sales book for
use with zig-zag folded forms, a writing plate
ears 8 of‘the writing plate I, the transfer sheet
is securely held in proper position, relative to the
writing plate and the forms, and the form 31s
guided and held against the transfer sheet by
15 the blade I3.
With the holder I2 and transfer sheet I5 in
position and ?rmly held by engagement of the
holder I2 in the lugs 8, the form sheets 6 .and ‘I
may be pulled downwardly on the writing plate
20 I to bring a second set of forms through the slot
2 and onto the writing plate I in proper relation
to the transfer sheet I5. In this operation, the
upper sheet 6 passes through the channel I2’
between the upper blade I3 of the holder I2 and
the transfer sheet I5, and the lower sheet 7
passes between the writing plate I and the folded
portion I8 of the transfer sheet I5 which is se
cured on the blade I4. As the end 20 of the blade
I4 clears the fold 5 of the form 3, no resistance,
395 or interference, is presented to such a movement
of the form 3 by the holder I2.
'
Whereas, I have shown and described a single
holder in co-operative relation with a single
transfer sheet and a single set of forms, it will
be understood by thoseskilled in the art to which
this invention appertains that any multiple of
form sets and transfer sheets may be conven
iently used, a holding device being used with each
transfer sheet.
What I claim is:
1. A holder for transfer sheets comprising, two
strip members of ?at spring metal and having the
same width, one of said members being posi
tioned above the other and spaced therefrom, a
spacer member between said strip members at
one end of said strip members, said strip mem
bers and said spacer member being ?xedly se
cured together to provide an unitary structure.
2. A holder for transfer sheets comprising, two
50" ?at strip members of spring metal, one of said
members overlying the other, a spacer member
between said strip members at one end thereof,

551 gether to provide an unitary structure, one of
said strip members being longer than the other,
whereby the end of said longer member opposite
the spacer member extends beyondthe corre
6.0
sponding end of the shorter member.
3. A holder for transfer sheets comprising, up
per and lower ?at strip members of spring metal,
the upper member being superposed on the lower
member and formed with tapered end portions,
provided with upwardly extending oppositely po
sitioned ears, a transfer sheet holder comprising,
a spring blade removably engaged in said ears
and‘ a second spring blade shorter than the ?rst 15
nam‘ed blade and having an end thereof ?xedly
secured on an end of said ?rst-named blade.
5. In combination, in an autographic register
device for use with zig-zag folded forms, a writ
ing plate provided with upwardly extending op 20
positely disposed apertured ears, a transfer sheet
holder comprising a blade of spring metal, a
second blade superposed on the ?rst-named blade
and longer than the ?rst-named blade, said ?rst
and second blades being spaced from each other 25
and ?xedly secured together at one end, said
second‘ blade being removably secured in said
ears.
6. In a book device for use with zig-zag folded
forms, a writing plate on which a set of said
forms may be positioned and provided with op
positely positioned ears, a transfer sheet inserted
