IT HAS SOME LETTERS ON THE BIT BUT I CAN’T MAKE THEM OUT

About a week ago, a simple direct pull corkscrew with a blade on the side was listed on eBay with a pretty low buy it now, in the grand scheme of things.

And, the seller explained that was a bit of wear on the piece, and that “IT HAS SOME LETTERS ON THE BIT BUT I CAN’T MAKE THEM OUT.”

The handle looked pretty familiar, and well…it looked like here might be an M and U, and that might just be an R that follows…so I guessed R. Murphy Boston…

It arrived today, and wouldn’t you know, it is a Murphy with blade…

Yes,  i know there are some chips on the handle, but for all the Murphys that I have found whilst traipsing around New England, finding one with the blade is quite unusual, and this would be the 4th Murphy with blade in the growing R. Murphy corkscrew collection!

This does need a little cleaning… We shall see how it turns out later today!
