This is the best kind of collectible - one you can USE! A sturdy bottle opener, from the New York Central Railroad. It dates to sometime between 1914 and 1968, very likely toward the earlier part of that time period. It works perfectly, popping open soda or beer bottles -- the glass ones with crimped metal tops.
Just under 5 inches long, it sports a bright red painted wood handle stamped NEW YORK CENTRAL. The paint is original and in fine condition with only a little chipping. The wooden part is sound and solid with no splits or repairs. The metal end is complete, sound and solid -- perfect working condition.
An unusual gift for a railway collector or anyone collecting unusual bottle openers.
The New York Central Railroad came about in 1914 following the reorganization of its predecessor, the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad. It lasted until 1968, when the US government forced it to merge with the Pennsylvania Railraod, creating the Penn Central.
