Mid-19C Loaded Billy Club


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…
