nice surprises

A couple of days ago, I found a small wooden corkscrew on ebay.  It was described as having a wobbly worm, but said nothing else.  There was a buy it now of 5.95, so I took a chance as the handle looked remarkably like my goodyear patent corkscrew.
 
It arrived yesterday, and after a gentle turn of the handle…indeed it is a 3 inch version of the 1851 patent.  It is unmarked, but a neat addition!  Does anyone have a marked one for sale or trade?
