Thumbs up It's in a book.

I know I should not be bothered by the {if not in a book, it is not very good and must be made for tourists mentality} which can be tiresome yet quite prevalent. It is none the less satisfying to find {the one in a book}

From which book do you have the picture, and from where do you think the club is?
I have a few books with items from the early time of the Narional Museum in Copenhagen. Maybe I can find it.

If I may, your club or truncheon looks similar but it's not the club depicted in the book. The one is the book has one simple circular section, yours has one circular then an octogonal section plus some bone inlays and a pommel ring...

I don't believe Tim was trying to say that he found the same exact club in a book, only that he found the same form of club which for some might recognize it as a legitimate form. despite the small difference you note i would say Tim's club is obvious of the same type as the one he found in the book.

the book could be wrong... there are historic accounts of people selling other items (mostly stirrers i believe) as war clubs. I believe it was Oldman who warned about this in one of his letters...
