Default B.G.I. Co. 1183

I picked up this rather fancy capper/decapper recently. Advertised as a potential paperweight. Itís marked ď10Ē, though a 12 gauge hull fits nicely. Iím unsure of its age, though itís old for sure. Iíve seen similar ones but not nearly as ornate.
The one mentioned in the letter for my 1886 D3 lifter was #1185. Iím not holding my breath finding that one.

Looks like the bottom of page 24 of the 1882 Parker Bros. catalog.
