poss Clichy signature cane - prob not
« on: July 22, 2014, 12:37:36 AM »
Anyone have this Clichy cane in a Clichy weight - or a round circle inside the crimp variety of this cane? It is from a small Clichy scrambled that was sent to me for analysis. I do not believe this to be a signature cane of a thick "C" for Clichy. It looks like the white circle broke apart in the making as the two opposing ends of the "C" look like the are book matched in their imperfections and indentations. The two ends are not squared off as you would expect. But then again if we look at the interior of the "C" the right edge does form a nice straight line - but that too could have been formed when the interior cane was shoved into the larger crimp mold in the making of the cane. Finding a cane where the circle was intact would be a nice confirmation though.

Maybe it's a mushroom silhouette??  ;D

Did you intend to add a different second picture? Or was the second copy just a mistake?

Not a Clichy signature cane that I've ever seen, they've all been like this one below. Can we see the rest of the weight?

Looks like the PW was safely returned?
