Now I know that this isn't Medieval but i thought i'd put it here anyway, as it 'may' have been used about the same time period, but i really dont know much about it.

It is an antique from China and appears to be either wrought iron or wrought steel, with some parts brass or copper, the shaft ( which is full tang though this is more of a thing with swords) is made out of iron/steel and has signs of deteriation such as smallccraters all along it and the copper/brass has a grayish and in some parts blueish silver sort of rust from the oxidization, though besides this the mace is rather undamaged, with the wooden handle being completly intact and the only other damage is the hilt, handle and pommel are loose because the glue they used has worn off. Very Happy

If someone can tell me how to put pictures from my computer onto the forums i will put some pictures of it.
