5 Haff Patent Variants


Two patents were issued to Edward Haff of New York for a method of securing handles to corkscrews.  Though technically not corkscrew patents, they are considered as such  nonetheless.  The patents were issued on April 14 and May 5, 1885.  This lot consists of 5 variations, two of which are fairly rare–the one on the left with the button, and particularly the second from the left with the cutter blade.


From left to right in the photo, the three with the metal bands bear the patent dates.  The other two are unmarked, though are the Haff patents.


I consider these examples to be in fair to excellent condition.  The piece with the cutter blade is in particularly excellent condition showing little use or wear.


See photo and O’Leary, pages 70-71 and Bull, pages 14 and 17
