three Murphys

As mentioned in the Brimfield post, I picked up the early example of the “challenge-type” Murphy corkscrew.   It is a welcome addition to the collection, and soon enough will be added to the Murphy page.

But, for kicks, I thought I would show three Murphys together.  Each has different markings.  Two with the arched frame, and one with the squared frame.  The one on the right has marking on the handle as well.

As you all know, I like Murphy corkscrews!

And, while I would love to add another Ivory handled one to the collection…

what I am really after is an unusual Murphy that has little teeth below the button.

Do any of you have this?  I would love to trade!
