Can you take a shot of each end?
Wide end is open, narrow end closed. Like you could put a staff in it. Totally hollow. I can stick my pinky finger about half way in. It had to have slid onto something.
And no writing or maker's marks at all.
Also no nail holes to hold it on. It would have been glued or pressure fit.

Your find was definitely meant to be seen, so I have to agree with your first assumption... it's either a parasol or cane tip. :thumbsup:

The narrow end seems a bit distorted like it's been tapped on the ground, but it's pretty thin metal and has a seam on only one side. I couldn't find anything close for cane or parasol, so I'll go with cane too. Thanks guys.

The thin metal ones are typically for a parasol, where as a heavier metal tip would be a cane.

This one doesn't have a nail hole like the one in Bronco's link. Would that matter for a swagger stick? And the closed end is flat, not pointed.
