This New Britain Stone Headed War Club measures 46 1/2" long and has an accession number label "1986.20.226" affixed to the top edge of the hardwood shaft where it flares out. As to whether or not the 1986 in the inventory number is the date when it was collected or just when it was donated or purchased by the university or museum that it was later deaccessioned from I don't know. The pointed pommel has some loss at the tip and the fiber or resin bushing type layer that would normally wrap between the shaft and the circular stone head is partial as well.
