Well, this last week, I saw three openers (one with a corkscrew) that had a similar shape. I figured, I would snag another Browne patent (the picture wasn’t very clear, but it looked similar) and I would use it as trade bait.
The openers arrived yesterday, and I got was an interesting surprise. It is indeed a Browne patent, but instead is William Browne’s patent number 654,089 and is marked, albeit faintly with, "PAT 8-16-98", and "6-26 & 7-17-1900." Check the pictures below, and then O’Leary page 112!
This one will be staying in the collection!
