Abstract

In a bill-handling machine such as an automatic teller machine wherein a plurality of bills for depositing and dispensing are stacked in one or more boxes in orderly one-by-one fashion, a mechanism is provided for closely arranging the bills while they are stacked in the box and for detecting the full condition of the box. Referring to the figure, each bill 1 passed through path A is fed into the box 2 by a continuously rotating feed roller 3 and pinch roller 4. The bill is fed along the guide bar 5 to the stopper plate 6 so that the front edge of bill does not flap. The guide bar 5 is made by conductive metal to discharge static electricity on the bill and be able to move up and down freely by the pivot 7 to apply an appropriate pressure on the bills stacked in the box 2.
