My present invention relates to bar pins for
personal wear, such as service bars employed to
display campaign ribbons and the like, and is di
rected more particularly to an improved article
of the type covered in my copending application

Figs. 25 and 26. The base 84 carries a fastener
pin 84 rotatively supported on an integral hinge
complete separation of the ribbon unit from the
base plate.
Figs. '14, .15, and 16 disclose a construction for
86, preferably of similar construction to that -
a two-ribbon bar pin. ' The ribbon-holding units
as shown in Fig. '16 are identical with those em
ployed in the construction of Figs. 10 and 13.
Base member I04 (see Figs. 14 and 15) is essen
tially the same as base member 98, except that it
is of a length to support an additional ribbon
shown in the embodiment of Figs. 1-5. A guide
member 88 is also upstruck from member 64, the
guide including a notch 90 to receive pin 84 ad
Jacent the sharpened end thereof (see Figs. 10
and 11). The end of member 64 opposite tongue
82 carries an integral ?ange or stop 82. Elon
gated slots 84 and 95 are formed in the base
member, slot 94. which extends into tongue 82,
being of a width to receive keeper 12 of plate 10.
In the assembly of a three-ribbon bar, two of
the individual ribbon units, constructed as pre
viously described are inserted on the tongued end
of base member 64 and slid therealong until the
forward holder reaches stop 92. Both of these
holders have their tongues ‘I2 in‘ their original
?attened positions within the plane of the plate.
The tongue 12 of the third'holder is retained in
its outwardly projecting position to constitute a
keeper for the fastening pin (see Figs. 10 and-17) .
The third unit is then applied to the base mem
unit. In assembling the construction, a ribbon
unit with its tongue or keeper member 12 in ?at
position, as shown at the right hand end of Fig.
216, is ?rst slid onto the member I04 from the
' slotted end thereof until it reaches the ?ange or
stop. The second unit. in reversed position, as
shown in Fig. 16, is then inserted on base mem
ber I04 and the bar pin attached to the clothing '
' - in the identical manner described above in con
nection'with the single-ribbon pin of Figs. 12 and
13. The bridge I05 is constructed and ‘utilized
' the same as bridge l0i ‘in the single pin.
-' As‘shown in Figs. 10, 12, and'14, the forward
ends of the base member are in each instance,
suitably rounded to prevent"catching of the
