Mid-19C Loaded Billy Club

F153

Click main image above to enlarge.

Superb early billy club or sap. Layers of wrought iron make up the body. Iron loop pivots to prevent kinking a cord. The business end is covered with leather and shows faint traces of original paint. Fantastic woven rope handle, with a nautical look. Massive use wear indicates years of heavy use. This also lends credence to the possibility that it was used and or embellished by a sailor, or a very bad dude. Outstanding untouched original surface patina. Heavy piece weighs 3/4 of a pound, and would have caused quite a dent when wielded with force. A sweet early example that oozes with character and history. The stories it could tell…
