Customer Question
I have an old...

I have an old 2 bladed knife. On one side it is stamped with the words Patent with Sharpe below that. there is also a number 510 on the same side. On the other side there is an inscription and I can only make out these words. "This knife is all possible non copper plated" More verbage follows but I cannot make it out.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

One of the two blades is a regular knofe blade. The other blade is rounded on one side and comes to a straight slot screwdriver point/ The knife is just a bit more than 3 inches long.
