DESCRIPTION

This unusual corkscrew may have been inspired by an early 1900's boxer named Kid McCoy who invented the "corkscrew punch". The full story of the corkscrew punch is told in D. Bull's FIGURAL CORKSCREWS book, page 247 where this Bronze Boxer is also shown at an estimated value of $500-$600.  

This well made Bronze mold corkscrew is well detailed with no markings and measures 6" from tip of head to tip of helix. It has been in my collection since the mid 1980's and was submitted to ScrewBase as #FPf900.

It should be noted that no auction sales for BRONZE BOXER have been recorded in the last 13 CollectorCorkscrews.com auctions. Satis guaranteed.

P.S. "Kid McCoy" used to cut his opponents to ribbons and the "corkscrew punch" was one of his favorite devices.
