With a history of having been recovered from the Boston, Mass., Charlestown Prison, at the time of its closing in 1955, this prison guard baton retains its original, solid but stiff with age, leather lanyard bearing the name of Boston equipment supplier Henry K. Barnes & Co. Well known as a supplier of police and fire equipment as early as the mid 1890s, the company reaching its zenith during the roaring 20s. Turned from white oak, the baton measures approximately 24 inches and was plainly constructed, as a no frills enforcement utility. Surely a formidable weapon in the hands of a 1920s prison guard. First opened in 1805 the Charlestown Prison had a long and infamous history stretching through the tumultuous mob activity of the 1920s on into the 50s housing an impressive roster of local Boston area notables in this period, until it was closed in 1955. The last execution (1947) in Massachusetts occurred within the walls Charlestown Prison which also housed such well knowns as Sacco & Vanzetti with one Malcom Little holding fourth there from 1946 until he was paroled in 1952 and, under the name of Malcom X, quickly became the public face of the Nation of Islam. We will include our letter preserving the history of having emanated from the Charlestown Prison closure. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
