hello,

The weight of the mace is too heavy, which should have a maximum of around 1.2 kg and most are lighter than 1 kg.


the shaft of this type is hollow/tubular and formed by rolling or hammering a flat section of metal around a cylindrical former, so there must be a seam at the shaft along the length direction!

The flanges of the macehead of this type must be fitted in slots cutted in the shaft, from the top down through the metal, and are fixed with copper solder.

Iam sorry but regarding to the weight and the lack of a longitudinal seam.
I think it is a subsequent reproduction, 19th or 20thC.

best regards
Jasper
