The it is one object of the invention to provide a body has portions cut therefrom to form. a strip device of this character which may be used for 2 which extends diametrically of the body with holding paper money and also for carrying coins, its ends integrally united to peripheral portions or identi?cation plates bearing a person’s name, thereof. There has also been provided a tongue address, or other identifying indicia. extending from the body in alignment with one Another object of the invention is to provide end of the strip 2 and bent back to form a resilient a money holder including a ?at body formed of jaw 3 having a curved spring portion 4 connect sheet metal or other suitable material, there ing one end with the body. This jaw has its being a jaw at one side of the body for gripping 10 free end portion bent to form a lip 5 extending paper money and jaws at the opposite side of at an incline from the lower end of the body so the body for holding coins or an identi?cation that paper mony may be folded and then easily plate. slipped into place between the resilient jaw and Another object of the invention is to provide the front face of. the body. ‘The strip 2 is formed the body with a diametrically extending strip 15 intermediate its length with a longitudinal slot constituting a carrier for a stationary jaw and 6 having an enlarged upper end portion. 1 and a movable jaw, the movable jaw being held in above this slot, the strip is cut to form a tongue place by a fastener having a flat head disposed having its upper free end portion curled back ?at against the strip under a jaw for holding upon itself so that this tongue forms a stationary paper money and carrying a threaded stem which 20 jaw 8 having an overhanging bill 9, the stationary passes through a longitudinal slot in the strip _ jaw being disposed at the opposite side of the and is screwed into a threaded opening formed strip 2 from the‘resilient jaw 3. in the movable jaw so that the movable jaw may The jaw 8 cooperates with a movable jaw Ill be tightly bound against the strip and held in an which is also formed of sheet material and has adjusted position. ‘ 25 a shank I I and a cross head I2 at one end Another object of the invention is to so form thereof.

The movable jaw is to be held in adjusted posi tions after being‘ shifted along the strip and in Figure 6 is a perspective view of the body portion of the holder. order to do so there has been provided a fastener Figure 7 is a perspective view of the fastener illustrated in Figure '7.

In Figure 8, a single opening H has been threaded stem projecting from the head and pass shown located near the upper end of the shank, ing through the slot and having threaded en but it is to be understood that additional open gagement with the movable jaw for holding the ings may be formed through the shank in spaced movable jaw in frictional binding engagement relation to each other longitudinally thereof so with the body when the fastener is turned in a that by engaging the stem in a selected one of tightening direction. the openings, the movable jaw may be accommo 3. A money holder comprising a body of sheet dated to coins or identi?cation plates of different 10 material including aperipheral portion and a sizes. Since the disc or head I5 is quite large, strip extending diametrically of the body with its it will project from opposite sides of the strip 2 side edges free and its ends connected with the and when a coin or identi?cation plate is set in the head l5 may be grasped and the fastener turned to draw the shank of the movable jaw into tight binding engagement with the confronting 'face of the strip 2.‘ The fact that the head 15 is large and projects from opposite side edges of the strip 2 also permits paper money to be more securely held by the resilient jaw 3, since the outer face of said head provides a large surface against which the folded bills are pressed to the jaw. From the foregoing description of the construc ticn of my improved device, the method of assem bly and the operation thereof will be readily un derstood and it will be seen that I have provided a comparatively simple, inexpensive and ef?cient means for carrying out the various objects of the invention. While I have particularly described the ele ments best adapted to perform the functions set forth, it is apparent that various changes in form, proportion and in the minor details of construc tion may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit or sacri?cing any of the principles of the invention.
