So where did you get hold of those, Ray?

Do you know which maker they are from? I won't give the game away if others would like to take a guess. But I think some people would be quite envious as some of those - and one in particular - are keenly sought after in actual weights :!:

The Black Swan cane is special because it was used in only in a relatively small number of weights.

I don't know the actual details of numbers, but for comparison, canes like the "Angel" and "Christmas Bell" (also seen in the group photo) were used in up to 1,000 weights as a Limited Edition set.
