Dave,

Unless you are sure of what you are buying, take great care in splashing out on painted truncheons. There are so many "chair legs" fashioned to look like the real thing by those interested in making a quick buck, that its fraught with danger. Even seasoned experts can be caught out. Personally, I've always stayed well clear. But each to his own. As they say, forewarned is forearmed.

Dave.

Hello David. Truncheon collecting is a very dangerous mine-field. Step cautiously. It’s difficult to confirm if ANY truncheon is:

old, authentic, police related, re-painted, home-made, etc. 

If it were me, I think I’d wait until an example that I could more easily identify surfaces. I could be wrong, but I’d say that there is no way on Earth that this particular stick can be attributable to any force. Just my opinion. 

Mike

Hah.  David beat me to the enter key!
