It would seem that given the use of the corkscrew–to apply shoe polish to women’s and children’s shoes–finding this corkscrew in the original shape (unused) has to be fairly unusual. A nice addition to the growing William Rockwell Clough collection!
On another note, I was sitting here drinking coffee (as I am prone to do) and a Bennit patent that was listed for 5 dollars, suddenly ended, and was relisted with a Buy It Now. No, I didn’t ask for the BIN, but I did take advantage of it. Only to receive an email moments later which reads, "Now you really owe me!!! That Bennit was mine. I love doing all the work for you."
I will keep the emailer/binner’s id secret, but as soon as I snapped up the BIN, I knew there would be an email to follow!
