William Scagel corkscrew

I'm interested in information about corkscrews made by William Scagel.

I'm a dedicated corkscrew collector and I just acquired one. Marked on the shank: HANDMADE W SCAGEL with a knife trademark. It's a straightpull with a crown seal caplifter extending from the shank. It has a horn/antler handle. The shank,caplifter and wire screw are formed from one piece of iron attached to the handle with brass fittings.

I'd like to post pictures of it but I see that the posting rules prohibit me from posting attachments. Presumably because I just joined the forum?

I've found details of one other Scagel corkscrew sold at a major Scargel auction back in 2002

This is the only one I've seen though clearly others exist. There is (or was in the past) one one the Randall Collection (RandallMade Knives). The one I photographed below sold at auction from the Lucie Collection in March of 2012 for$4,312.50 (Morphy Auctions).
