I have been collecting canes for 25+ years and the canes that test 18k or higher when further tested were all solid gold. This cane was not further tested nor did I do file testing that would mar the unique handle. By the look and feel and this being a one of a kind cane I believe it is solid gold. This looks to be presented by a colonel to a captain in 1881 and may have a Civil War connection for you researchers out there.Large 1.45 inches wide and 2.35 in long. The whole cane is 36 inches long. Some light dings in the soft 18k gold. You will never find another like this. True ebony shaft in great condition with a two part ferrule with some wear.
