The first American patented corkscrew?  Take a look at the drawings for M. L. Byrn’s U. S. Patent No.27,615 of March 27, 1860. Like the example shown in O’Leary on page 32, this corkscrew is not marked. As O’Leary states “The similarities lie in its simplicity and screw-like worm.” You decide. I am inclined to say “Yes, it is.”   


 I am offering for sale the wine antiques collection of Carroll Johnson.  A very discriminating collector, Carroll sought wine antiques in very good condition for over 35 years. Over 200 of Carroll’s wine antiques are shown in the book Wine Antiques & Collectibles. These include cradles, coasters, tastevins, bin labels, bottles, chariots, coopers’ tools, vineyard tools, corkers, bungs, and much more. A handful of his 2000+ corkscrews are also shown. Carroll became a member of the International Correspondence of Corkscrew Addicts in 1989 at the invitation of Bob Nugent.
