Victorian Era Police, Tipstaff With Wooden Handle, Brass Shaft & Screw Off Brass Crown Tip. Sn 13496. - 13496
The earliest record of the Tipstaff (Warrant Stick) was in the 14th century.

The staff would be made of wood or metal and were not only a means of self defence but the tips of the staffs would bear symbols of their authority. Modern Police Truncheons originated from these Tipstaffs. This is an excellent original Victorian era Tipstaff. It measures 11 ¾” overall length. The body is made of heavy wood, tapered and grooved for grip. The brass shaft has tooled ‘line’ decoration. The top of the shaft has a screw off tip in the form of a brass Royal Crown with old frayed purple felt padding. The price for this excellent piece of Policing history includes UK delivery. Sn 13496

This pacifier is made from dark coloured wood and has the cosh end attached by a thick stitched leather strap. The bulbous cosh head is not weighted and the leather strap is pinned to it with 4 steel pins and copper washers. The handle is turned with grooves at the grip end. It measures 21 3/4" overall.
