I have two catalogues from Webley those of 1877 and 1888.
This tool is depicted in the 1888 catalogue. The appropriate page is attached.
This is the only Webley tool in this collection until now (13 March 2021) that bears the full name of P. Webley and son. All other tools only list a catalogue number or the name of a gun shop.
In the official listing of the tools in the Webley catalogue, the letter stands for the number. Because of the automatic sequence determination in this website, the letter is behind the number.
