Replica 1960s Wooden Police Truncheon
- Brand: Smiths Tools
- Product Code: Truncheon
- Availability: In Stock
This is an exact replica of a 1960s Leeds City Police issue constables’ truncheon.
It is made of Malaysian Oak and comes with a lanyard just like the originals. It is 290g (10.23 oz) in weight and measures just under 16 inches long (that's a tad over 40cm if you think in metric).
Original wooden police truncheons are quite hard to come by nowadays (most police forces stopped using them in 1994). Most change hands in antique fairs and auction houses. Prices tend to start at around £80 and run well into three figures.
For the collector, enthusiast, prepper, props department or person that just wants one for whatever reason, these represent not only an interesting piece of social history but are very reasonably priced as well.
