Use the Screws to Help Identify the Age of Your Furniture - This is an early machine-cut screw, a vast improvement over the handmade example. Like the handmade version, it is still cylindrical with no taper or point but the threads are consistent and sharp. But the head still has a problem. It was still handmade at this point, circa 1815-1820, and the slot was still hand cut and off center.
