    Is this some sort of blackjack?

    My wife and I found this on our daily treasure hunts. But what is it? I think it may be a type of blackjack.Click image for larger version.

    Has a leather strap, and a 1943 Nicaraguan coin embedded in the large end.

    Very cool find. I think it a very cool blackjack that should make you some money. What is it made of?

    Your teacher would hit you with those when I was a kid and your parents would praise them for doing so.

    I'd say it is a riding crop.

    It looks like the one my dad carried in his back pocket and a 32 in his front pocket when he went to work .he was a Bartender. If the end is heavy its a black jack.

    Didn't see the length earlier. Not long enough for a crop.

    Doesnít look like a sap to me - why would the handle be jointed? The part with the coin looks more handle-ish.

    It's jointed to add velocity when you swing it.

    I would say blackjack, actually slapjacks are jointed or made of braided leather (at least that's what googling found

    My dad was a bouncer and a cop, so Iíve seen plenty of blackjacks. I have a few he took from people somewhere. I know theyíre jointed. But why is the HANDLE jointed on this one? So it can pinch you? So you donít need to care which end you use?

    That is a stamp for a wax seal...they where used to ensure that the letter or package was untampere..hence the reverse print...db

    Where do you see reversed letters?
