The Gold Rush Era corkscrew…

I was scouring the archives of Google this weekend and found this baby.  A Will & Finck Corkscrew!  I’ve owned one of these previously and would love to get another for the collection!

I quickly proceeded to contact the owner to see if a deal could be made.  🙂

Within a few hours a phone call was made and our conversation went something like this:

“Hi, is the corkscrew still available?”

“Yes it is.”

“Well, what price were you thinking?”

“I was told that a few years back when Will & Finck was hot, it was worth 5.”

“Would you take 3?”

“You’re not far off….  I was offered 28 and I passed on it.  How bout 4?”

“28?  Wait a second…!  $2800?  We are WAY off here.”

Needless to say negotiations ended quickly and with out a corkscrew.  😦

Anyone else got a Will & Finck corkscrew available for purchase that’s not in the $1000’s?  Drop me a line at
