This Truncheon is a long one being 22" in length with a diameter at the club end of 1 1/4"....so long, thin and tapered....possibly a Mounted Constabulary Truncheon. The wood is relatively light but the baton is very nicely balanced with a nice turned handle grip.It has been painted black....whether original or not am unsure of. Probably Pre 1950 era.
