A cornucopia of corkscrews - Times-Standard Online

A cornucopia of corkscrews - Times-Standard Online:
"the Clarke Historical Museum in Eureka. Roy Sheppard's private collection of corkscrews comprises more than 300 of the objects and almost every one is different.
Sheppard, of McKinleyville, has been collecting corkscrews for about 47 years, “as long as I've been married,” he said. Most of them were obtained locally, with some found during his travels to nearby areas. The oldest corkscrew in his collection is made of brass and dates to 1840."
