This blackjack dates from the early to mid 1900's and is a small, easily-concealed weapon consisting of a leather-wrapped lead weight attached to the end of a leather-wrapped coil spring. The strap on the end opposite the weight wraps around the wrist.

It works by storing kinetic energy in the dense core when swung, this stored energy then spreads the impact over a larger surface area; the leather covering lessens the chance of lacerating the skin and the chance of breaking bones...

This large size boot pistol with walnut grips doesn't have any markings, but from the style appears to be USA made. The under-hammer percussion pistols were popular because the triggers didn't get caught when withdrawing them from their hiding place in a gentleman's boot. Because of it's size and the thickness of the barrel this particular pistol may have been used in law enforcement. Aside from being able to shoot, it would have been a formidable weapon when used as a club. The barrel is about ...
