Any one have any ideas as to what the "T" cane represents?

I think, from relative positioning, that the S and colon are relevant so S:T - possibly a personalised wedding gift?

I thought it might be a special order company commemorative weight - and perhaps others exist. It seems more likely than constructing and pulling a T cane for a single event. But has anyone ever seen a weight from Strathearn like that before or even a T cane of that making?

Hopefully, I will see that weight for real sometime.

Frank as it has a  72 cane, could it have been made for someone at the Lisbon exhibition ?

If they had a portable set up, which seems unlikely!

Could it not have been made in Strathearn before going to Lisbon, as a gift maybe.

May the "T" be an casualty arrow ?
