Fashioned from a stout tree branch, steamed and bent to form a classic cane grip, the significances of the natural shaft has unfortunately been lost in time baring some additional research. Fortunate for the collector / historian though is a silver band classically engraved Col. Jos. A. Gerk St. Louis. Born in 1876 of German immigrants, the native Missourian recorded No in response to the 1930 US Census inquiry, Attended School? yet he owned a Radio Set and could record his occupation as Chief of Police St Louis, Missouri. Our research found that Gerk worked his way up through the ranks to serve as Chief of Police from April 9, 1925 to October 1, 1934. An outstanding piece of Americana from The Gateway To The West in a time when the Chief of Police would have had some stories to tell. 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!
