This is unmistakeably a Webley tool R 7007 but there are apparently more than one model. The 1888 catalogue shows a tool with the de-capper at the left side. This tool has the de-capper at the other side.

In this collection there is a tool, made for Abrahams a gunshop in Melbourne, Australia. This tool, that is more like the Webley similar to the drawing in D.J. Baker (page 198) has its de-capper at the other side.
