MATCH PACKET AND CARDCASE
Frederick W. Rettenmeyer, Meriden, Conn., as
signor to The Napier Company, Meriden, Conn.,
a corporation of Connecticut
Application April 1, 1941, Serial No. 386,273
3 Claims. (Cl. 20G-38)
This invention relates to an improvement in
match-packets and cardcases, that is, a holder
for a packet of matches and also a case for cards,
such as photographs, identification cards, etc.
The object of the invention is to provide a
holder for matches and cards, so combined and
arranged as to produce a holder which is attrac
tive in appearance and which may be conven
iently carried in the pocket, and is particularly
designed for enlisted men although equally use
ful for others.
With the above and other objects in view, as
will appear to those skilled in the art from the
present disclosure, this in'vention includes all
features in the said disclosure which are novel
over the prior art.
In the accompanying drawing, in which cer
tain modes of carrying out the present invention
are shown for illustrative purposes:
Fig. 1 is a front view of a match-packet and .
provided with finger-pieces 34 and 35 to facili
tate opening.
Any desired ornamentation or insignia may be
afñxed to the outer faces of the covers to indi
cate the class of service or rank of the owner.
The identiñcation cards carry the name and
other data regarding the owner, and this is ex
posed when the packet 22 is removed. Any de
sired message, or other information, from the
donor may be scratched or stamped on the in
ner face of the covers.
The invention may be carried out in other
specific ways than those herein set forth without
departing from the spirit and essential charac
teristics of the invention, and the present em
bodiments are, therefore, to be considered in all
respects as illustrative and not restrictive, and
all `changes coming within the meaning and
equivalency range of the appended claims are
intended to be embraced therein.
I claim:

In carrying outl my invention, I form the body
of the body-member turned up, forming a match

il at its upper edge and with an opening I2.
The sides I3 and lll of the body are folded in 40 through which the abrasive surface of a match
packet is exposed, and covers hinged to the top
wardly to form channels l5 and I6 for the re
of the body-member and adapted to cover the
ception of a picture I1 and an identification or
oposite
faces of the same, the upper end of the
other card I8. 'I'he lower end i9 is turned up

to form a pocket 2l for the match-packet 22, 45 the heads of matches in the pocket.
ì 3. A combined match-packet holder and card
the abrasive surface of which is exposed through
case'
comprising a body-member formed with an
an opening 23 in the pocket 2l. The covers,
opening through which a card may be exposed,
which for convenience I refer to as a “front”
the sides of the body-member folded inward,
cover 24 and a “back” cover 25, are formed re
spectively with knuckles 26 and 21 to be con 50 forming card-receiving channels, the lower end
of the body-member turned up, forming a match
nected with the knuckles ll by a pintle 28. The
packet pocket, an opening in said turned-up end
upper end of the front cover 24 is bowed to give
through
which the abrasive surface of a match
clearance for the heads of the matches in the
packet is exposed, covers hinged to the top of
packet 22. The covers are respectively provided
with studs 29 and 30, to extend into holes 3l and 65 the body-member by a single pintle and adapted
32 in the body, so as to hold the covers in closed
position.
At the upper edge of the hole 3| is
an inwardly-projecting ñnger 33 which acts as a
stop to limit the downward movement of the
packet, as well as providing an additional fric 60
tion surface for the stud 29. The covers may be
to cover the opposite faces of the same, the upper
end of the front cover being bowed to give clear
ance for the heads of matches in the pocket, and
a stop to limit the downward movement of the
match-packet.
