    Apologies for the lack of attendance to the site.
    I have recently acquired what looks to be a trench mace. It was purchased from a woman in Germany who cannot tell me much about it other than it was amongst a selection of relics in a house clearance.
    Would anyone be able to tell me if this could be authentic or not?
    It looks to have been made from a pick axe handle and the nails have been cut off crudely to make the spikes.
    I took a chance on it as it was only approx 20, so those of you who have seen these things come up for sale will know how cheap this was.

    I was going to have a go at cleaning it up, but wanted to get your expert advice on whether it is better left as it is before I ruin it. But maybe some careful rust removal and a gentle treatment of the wood would keep it going for another hundred years.

    Any help much appreciated as limited information other than a few museum photos to go on.

    It looks like the end of a washing line pole....
