Application January 30, 1937, Serial No. l23,251 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; Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the transfer sheet holder. Fig. 2 is a partial plan view of a writing plate with fan fold forms, transfer sheet, and holder graphic registers. 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 2 '10 2,136,817 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, said strip members and said spacer member be ing relatively similar in thickness and welded to 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 between the upper and lower leaves of said form set and provided with spaced openings, a holder for said transfer sheet comprising a blade mem 35 ber engaged in said spaced openings and extend ing beyond one side edge of said transfer sheet and a second blade member ?xedly secured to said ?rst-named blade member, superposed thereon, and spaced therefrom, and engaged in said ears, whereby said transfer sheet is ?xedly secured above said writing plate between said ears and between the leaves of said form set and said form set is slidably guided on said writing plate with its upper leaf between said transfer 45 sheet and said second blade. 7. In combination in a counter sales book, a writing plate provided with oppositely upwardly extending apertured ears, a transfer sheet holder comprising, a spring blade removably engaged in 50 said ears, a second spring blade shorter than said ?rst-named blade, a spacing member positioned between said blades with the adjacent ends of said blades and said spacing member flush, said blades and said spacing member being welded 55 together to provide an unitary structure. 8. A holder for transfer sheets comprising two ?at strip members of spring metal and having the same width, said members being spaced from each other and ?xedly secured together at one end only, one of said members being secured over the other. - EDWARD HANO.
