  • Patent number: 6374573
    Abstract: A crimper for forming a finished crimped end on a wrapper for coins or other articles has a cylindrical opening for receiving a projecting end of the wrapper into the body. A crimping structure located in the opening includes a first slide surface for sliding the end of the wrapper in a first linear direction to a second of slide surface for sliding the end of the wrapper in a second, transverse linear direction. By sliding the end of the wrapper in the two directions, the end of the wrapper is forced to roll and form a finished crimped end.

  • Patent number: 5090179
    Abstract: While measuring racks and the like are known to count or measure the number of coins required to wrap same into rolls, the actual wrapping requires considerable experience and dexterity and can be time consuming. The present device consists of a relatively thin plastic or card semi-circular trough having closed ends and a length equal to the required number of coins in a roil of that particular denomination with the curvature of the trough and length thereof varying with each denomination of coin. The entire trough and measured contents may then be wrapped in a conventional coin wrapper readily and easily as the closed ends of the trough retain the coins during the rollng process.

  • Patent number: 4996822
    Abstract: A device for wrapping coin rolls includes a base supporting a pad of wrapper sheets for wrapping a roll of coins initially supported by an end wall and two side walls located at one end of the base. The end wall is spaced a distance less than the diameter of the coin roll from the adjacent edge of the wrapper sheet pad so that the coins rest at the edge of the pad before starting each wrapping procedures. Strips of contact adhesive on the upper side of the wrapper sheets holds the wrapper to the coins and causes the wrapper sheet to adhere to itself when the wrapping is completed.

  • Patent number: 4741720
    Abstract: Three simply constructed plastic tubes form a time saving coin wrapping system. The first component is a clear plastic base used for holding a stack of similar coins. The second component is a transfer tube made of a resilient split plastic rolled sheet. This transfer tube is inserted down around the coins while in the base. Finally, a third component, a resilient plastic casing which holds a paper coin wrapper, is inserted in the top of the transfer tube. The entire assembly is inverted. The coins can now be removed neatly wrapped in the paper coin wrapper.

  • Patent number: 4091599
    Abstract: A coin counting and packaging device is disclosed which comprises a tubular body having at its receiving end a semi-circular scoop and at its counting end a circular coin chamber to hold a column of coins. At the terminal end of the coin chamber a stopper means, which may be adjustable, is provided to support the coins in the chamber and to define a length of chamber for a prescribed number of coins to be counted and packaged. Standard paper wrapping tubes or wrapping sheets formed into tubes may be used in conjunction with the device for the purpose of wrapping the coins into a compact stack. The device of the present invention is most useful for counting and packaging coins without the necessity of counting the coins mentally prior to wrapping them, and reducing the dexterity required on the part of the wrapper to package them.

  • Patent number: 3962847
    Abstract: A coin wrapping device to assure the simple safe stacking and firm and secure wrapping of a roll of coins of selected common diameter having a housing incorporating an elongated cylindrical chamber including an arcuate trough of appropriate diameter and an arcuate hinged cover therefor, a manually rotatable shaft in the cover parallel with the chamber and a resilient friction roller on the shaft with part of its circumference projecting through an aperture in the cover into the chamber in spaced relation to said trough. The housing for the coin wrapping chamber is mounted on a base that provides also a flat work surface for preliminary folding of an end of a conventional paper wrapper prior to introducing the same to the wrapping chamber.

  • Patent number: 3934389
    Abstract: An upwardly open box with a floor and three sides, is provided with a plurality of interchangeable fourth sides each with spacer means for determining the length and thus the number of coins of any denomination to be wrapped. The device includes a stand for the box, which holds the box at a compound tilt that obviates the need for springs. One box side is provided with a concave trough where the coins are to be disposed. The floor is provided with guide means for the wrapper and the lip of the box side opposite the one provided with the trough is provided with a slot for guiding the wrapper. Retainer means are provided on the box for removably holding the interchangeable fourth side in place while it is in use.
