Stanley Screwdriver No. 64 Antique TurnScrew 9 inch
This is one of the earliest 9" long Stanley patented screwdrivers, this one has the 1871 patent lightly stamped on it just below the "STANLEY RULE & LEVEL CO." mark. The beech handle has the single rivot in it that holds it firmly to the steel blade as well as a good brass ferrule. The handle is very solid, no wiggle at all, has two wood grain seperation that end inside the tight fitting brass ferrule, but does have some dents and dings. The blade is .12" thick and measure about 3.75" from the end to the brass ferrule. The tip width is about 1/4" wide. Overall, pretty nice for a 150 year old screwdriver! Stanley did make this model up to 1927, but keep in mind, this one has the older Stanley Rule & Level mark, which proves it was made pre-1930's.
