I was watching that one. It is quite a bit smaller than the examples I uploaded earlier. It does look like a good club with some age. Not a recent tourist piece.

Thumbs up Hamburg wonders

Do not worry there are some weapons but not many. I cannot believe members will consider the other content uninteresting. I have still to work on some native American clubs.
