CIVIL WAR PERIOD FOLDING CORKSCREW N/M 1860 - 70

THIS IS A TYPICAL FOLDING CORKSCREW FROM THE CIVIL WAR PERIOD. THIS WAS AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY FOR THE MILITIA TO KEEP IN HIS POSSIBLES BAG, OR POCKET, AS ALMOST ALL WERE IN CORKED BOTTLES AT THAT TIME. IT STILL HAS VERY GOOD SNAP WITH NO WOBBLE. IT IS 1 3/4 INCHES WIDE X 4 1/2 IN. OPEN AND 2 1/2 IN. CLOSED. NEAR MINT CONDITION.
