NICE GAR CANE WITH CANNON BARREL GRIP -  
Beyond a doubt the best generic style GAR cane I've
owned. Not the typical 'walking stick' cane normally seen.
Approx. 35" in length and over 5/8" in diameter - a good
sturdy piece of what looks like ebony. Grip is a heavy piece
of cast metal in the shape of a cannon tube and shows the
GAR membership badge with crossed rifles, swords and an
anchor, with 'GAR' and '1861 & 1865'. Looks as though in
places there may have been a goldine finish on the grip.
The bottom tip still retains this or may be a replacement
but fits the wood perfectly so believe it is original to the
piece. Very good condition.
