Passbook Rotation Mechanism

      Disclosed is a device of turning over a passbook to print
customer name or something on outside of the cover page.  The
passbook is fed from the printer portion to the Rotation Case in a
tunnel-like manner.  Then the Case rotates 180 degrees and the
passbook is fed back  to the printer portion.

      The Figure shows this device composition.  Passbook is fed into
the Rotation Case like tunnel shape by the Feed Roller.  The leading
edge of the Passbook stops at the Guide Plate.  The Guide Plate is
made of low friction material like engineering plastics.  Then, the
Case rotates 180 degree.  Push Lever pushes the passbook with
rotating Feed Roller to the printer portion direction.  The passbook
is fed back  to the printer portion and turned over.  The Lever then
comes back to initial position.

      A passbook turning over function is required in passbook issuer
development.  The function is easily acquired by adding this device
to conventional passbook printer mechanism.
