Best described here by our photo illustrations, this neat old gold headed walking stick is nicely engraved JEC in the traditional monogram style with the surname initial prominent in the center. Acquired from an established collection where it was attributed to James C. Egan who served in the Spanish American War era in the 1st New York Infantry which was federalized for service in that war. (see: service dates May 2, 1898 / Feb. 20,1899 document copy provided) While the significance of the inscribed 30 - Mar. - 1920 date has been lost in time, aside from his military service we know that James C. Egan was born 14 November, 1869, lived in the Bronx, NY for a time and was listed as a Taxi Cab driver in the 1910 US Census. He died in 1951 and is buried in the St. Joseph's Cemetery, Middletown, New York. Offered here in as acquired condition, nice original finish on the shaft with no breaks or cracks, the head is solid, remaining pleasing condition while remaining in pleasing condition.
