Vintage Spoke Threader Tool

Hi this is my first post here. I tried to attach photos but it wonít let me until i post enough. I deal in vintage American motorcycles & parts and acquired 2 spoke threaders in a lot of parts I picked up. Iím not very familiar with these tools and was hoping someone here could help me out in identifying them and/or selling them. I can email or text pics to anyone that needs them. Thanks in advance

Brand names?
What gauge spokes? Bicycles typically use 14 ga. (2.0mm) but might be a size smaller/larger. (+/- about .2mm)

Is it this one?

Spoke gauge is stamped on the rolling head; "14" in the picture above.

If so, it's still in production. You could ascertain a reasonable asking price by looking at completed auctions for the tool on eBay.
