The wallet B has one

wallet A of FIGURES 1 to 5.
he dual pocket 58, as shown in FEGURE 11, com
prises a single elongated sheet, slightly narrower and
slightly ‘shorter than the cover sheet 50, and which has
a transverse fold 6%) which is located intermediate the re
sultant inner and outer pocket walls 62 and 64, respec
tively, but is displaced toward the free end 65 of the
outer wall 64, as shown in FIGURE 9, with the result
that the inner pocket wall 62 is slightly longer than the
outer pocket wall 64. The inner wall 62 is suitably se
cured, along its inner end, as indicated at 66, to the ?rst
?ap 54, along its side of the cover sheet fold 6t), and the
outer pocket wall 64 is normally {folded down upon the
inner pocket wall 62.
The pocket walls 62 and 64 are unsecured together at
their side edges, but side tabs 68 extend along the side
edges of the inner pocket wall 62 and are connected there
to by folds 7 0, and normally overlie the outer side of the
inner pocket wall 62, beneath the outer pocket wall 64.
the side tabs 63 form closure for the sides of the pocket
58, and have, on their outer sides, near the secured end of
the inner pocket wall 62, snap fastener elements 72, with
which are securably and separately engageable, snap‘ fas
tener elements 74, on the inner side of the outer pocket
wall 64, at its free end.
Money bills 76 and 78, folded ‘
in half, having been placed crosswise in the pocket 53,
and the side tab 68 brought inwardly over the bills and
the outer pocket side wall '64 brought down upon the tab
68 and secured thereto, the bills 76, 78, are con?ned in
the Pocket 58.
Providing access to money bills are longitudinal slots
and 32 are secured together, while in the form of FIG
URES 6 to 11 the adjacent side edges are secured together
by means including the foldable side tabs 68 projecting
from the inner wail 62 of the pocket 58 which tabs are se
cured to the outer wall 64 of the pocket 58 by the co
operating snap fastener elements '72 and 74 on the tabs
68 and the outer wall 64 of the pocket 53 respectively.
Also, each of the pockets 26 ‘and 28 of the form of FIG
URES l to 5, and the pocket 58 of the form of FIG
URES 6 to 11, is connected to one of the ?aps 16 or 18
or of the flaps 54 and 56 along the longitudinally-inward
edge of one of the inner and outer walls of the pocket.
While there have been shown and- described herein pre
ferred forms of the invention, it is to be understood that
the invention is not necessarily con?ned thereto, and that
any change or changes in the structure of and in the rela
tive arrangements of components thereof are contemplat
ed as being within the scope or" the invention as de?ned by
the claims appended hereto.
What is claimed is:
1. A wallet comprising an elongated cover panel hav
ing a transverse median fold line dividing said panel into
?rst and second cover ?aps having inner sides, said cover
?aps being adapted to be folded to superimposed closed
position, a ?at pocket interposed between the inner sides
of said ?aps, said pocket being composed of inner and
outer walls which have side edges and longitudinally
inward and outward edges, the walls of said pocket being
connected together at one of said longitudinally-inward
and outward edges and being separated at the other of
said longitudinally-inward and outward edges, the sep
arated other of said longitudinally-inward and outward
edges forming therebetween an access opening to the in
terior of the pocket for receiving folded money, and
means closing each of the adjacent side edges of the outer
and inner walls of the pocket, said pocket being con
nected to one of said ?aps. along one of the longitudinally
inward edges of the inner and outer walls thereof, there

denominations,- are drawn through the slot 80 of the
inner pocket wall 62, ‘as shown in FIGURE 10, with the
exposed portions 77 thereof disposed between the inner
being a longitudinal slot formed in the outer wall of said
pocket wall 62 and the related cover ?ap, While bills 78,
