Figs. 1 and 2 show the folder part I0 of the device in a flatlorA expanded condition. AThis folder com'-v prises` a' sheet of paper or other suitable sheet ma terial having a portion orîsection II adapted to receive on the'kinside thereof the originative mat ,terA .tov be protected, and a, flap portion or 'cover for subsequent comparison with said matter'to section' I2 Vfor closingthe folder_after it has been 20 determine whether alteration of the latter has oc prepared ashereinafter explained. curred. ' , Y _' » The' innerv face of the folder portion II pref erably' has a marginal line I3 printed thereon and - Still another object of my invention is to pro vide a protective ldevice of thercharactervmen enclosing a space or area. I4 in which a drawing, tioned having a po-rtion adapted to receive origi design, Written‘composition, or other originative native matter and to be folded and sealed `for 25 matter can be drawn, written or otherwise de concealing such matter and to be perforated for picted. Instead ofA being drawn or writtendi preventing subsequent alteration of such matter rectly in the space- I4, the originative matter can without detection. ~ - ' " ' The present invention also aimsto provide for the protection of inventive ideas by placing Va dated disclosure of such an idea >on sheet ma terial and perforating the sheet material- after such disclosure has been placed thereon. _' Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following description when taken in conjunction with the accompany ing sheets of drawings in which, . Fig. 1 is a Vplan view showing the inside of a folder made according to the present invention, A,such folder being shown in a flat condition; ` , Fig. 2 is a similar plan view of the folder show ing the other or outerside thereof; Fig. 3 is a plan view of a record _sheet adapted be in the form of,'ïor carried by, a separate sheet 30 which is placed' against the area I4 and maybe glued or otherwise attached thereto. The end portion I la, which comprises approximately one half of'the folder sectionII, is adapted to be folded 4transversely at the point indicated by the. ‘ dotted'lines I5, that’ is to say, folded transversely on va line'extending across the folder section II at approximately the mid-point thereof. ',The„,end portion Ilo has a marginal strip of glue or other adhesive I6 ‘thereon lying outside _of the marginalline I3 and extending from one of the dotted lines I5 to the other as shown in Fig. 1. AThe portion IIb of the folder section II is pro-v vided with oppositely extending hap portions .I Ic which have marginal strips I1 of glue or other> tobe used as a part of my protective device;v 45 adhesive thereon. As shown in Fig. 1 the flap Fig. 4 vis a perspective view showing the folder portions llcp'roject. outwardly beyond the side ~ edges of the end portion I Ia and extend along the Fig.> 5 is another perspective view showingA a , foldersectionll .from the fold lines I5 ythereof portion >of the device folded and sealed for con approximately .toV the junction or fold line I8 con cealing the originative matter and also showing 50 necting'the folder section II with the cover sec the record sheet being placed` in the folder; tion I2~> . Fig. 6 is a perspective view showing the device After >theoriginative matter has been placed' partially folded; after the sealed portion >containing the origina-.-l tive matter has been folded against the iiap por on'or against’the inner faceiof the area I4 of the folder section II, the outer end portion> IIa is ` " ' Fig. 7 is a perspective view showing the sealed .55 folded- inwardly at the dotted lines I5 and, as tion or cover section; 2,408,626 3 4 indicated in Fig. 4, such folding of the end por tion I Ia causes the folder section I I to be doubled patent application, this space may be used for maintaining a record of the events or develop ments which occur during the prosecution of the or folded upon itself so as to conceal the origina tive matter between the folded portions. As a part of the operation of folding the end portion II d, the _marginal adhesive strip Iâ is moistened and pressed firmly against the folder portion IIb patent application in the Patent Oiiice. The space 26 may have the name and address of the service station or agent to whom the pre pared folder IG is sent for purposes hereinafter explained, This space may also include lines for so that the folder portions IIa and IIb will be come sealed together onthreesides vof 'the are@ the dated >signatures of employees ofsuch service I4. Afterthe end portion I Ia has beenïthusfoldr 10 station who receive and handle the folder. ed and sealed against the portion IIb, the flaps The space 2l may be provided for the dated receiving iIc are folded inwardly toward each other and; ' >stamp of the service station named in the space after moistening of the adhesive strips IT thereof 23. Such receiving stamp will show the date, and are pressed firmly against the back lor outside face of the folded end portion II a. These flaps if ydesired the hour, when the folder was received by such service station. The space 28 may con tain the serial number 29 of the folder and any form an additional holding and sealing means for retaining the end portion IIa in its folded con dition. In Fig. 5 I show the folder section II in the folded and sealed condition resulting from the above described procedure. It will be seen that .when the. folder Section ll has been thus Prepared, it forms. a Strona envelope. 0r enclosure for 'retaining and concealing the originative mat' ter.

The cover section I2 of the folder ld has Aside be, provided with printed lines 30 and 3| thereon 25 Fig. 1, the inner faces of these fia-ps have mar ginal stlîîllS, ‘ëî 0f glue or other adhesive thereon. After the folder section II has been folded and ysealed as shown in Fig. 5 andV above explained, it is ready to be folded against the _cover section I2 for they signature of the originator~ or inventor and the dating of the originative matter which has been placed in the space I4, In addition to the lines 38 and 3i,Y the folder section II may also have lines 32 and 33 thereon for the dated signatures ofl witnesses. The lines 39 and 3|` are located inthe lower right-hand corner of the area 30 to form a second enclosure or envelope in the folder Iii. The enclosure or envelope formed be tween the cover section I2 and the previously folded section I I serves to> conceal `and carry any III and the lines 32 and 33 are located in the lower left-hand corner of this area so that when the folder section I I is folded or doubled on the dot te@ lines I5, the lines 39 and 3l will be in super desired data relating to the originative matter, posed or overlying relationto the lines 32 and 33. such as one or morel record sheets 22_. This is an important feature in connection with the perforating of; the folder as will be explained In Fig. 5 I show one of the record sheets 22 in the act of being moved into position against the inner face of the> cover section I2 `ofy the folder preparatory to the folding Vof the'sealed section I I hereinafter. ` ‘ ' ' In Fig. 2 I show the back or outside of the against the cover section or vice versa. In Fig. 6 I show the sealed folder section I i as having been swung or folded on. the fold linel I8 against, and inoverlying relation to, the cover section I2 and with the record sheet 22.`disposed between the folder sections I I and I2.
