Yesterday morning, over coffee, I was perusing eBay, and a 1906 Noyes patent came up with a 5 $ opening bid or best offer.
Not that I need another Noyes corkscrew, but when one comes up with a different advertisement, I do take notice.
So, I offered, and got a prompt response. Yes, they would accept, but did I want any of their other openers–apparently yet to have been listed.
Nothing really jumped out at me, so he accepted the offer, and the Noyes will soon be arriving to join its kin.
This one carries advertising that reads:
“DRINK OLCO WHISKEY”
–O.B. COOK @ CO–
O.B. Cook was a distillery out of Detroit, and made multiple brands; Export Brand Whiskey, Knickerbocker Whiskey, Olco Whiskey, Vallonia Whiskey, and Yankee Rye.
A neat addition to the Noyes advertising corkscrew collection.
