    These are at a local thrift store. They were brought out late yesterday so I am hopeful they will be there this morning if they are worth buying (I'm usually within first 5 people in line!).
    Are they worth $50 each? I couldn't find a signature but one still has a old sticker - for $650!
    As always I thank you & appreciate any help.

    I suspect the 685.00 will not be Dollars, or US Dollars.

    I don't know bupkis about canes, but a friend of mine tried to sell some vintage canes on eboo and they kept pulling the listings as they thought it was a weapon.
    This was a few years ago, so maybe things have changed.

    Not U.S. money - that makes sense; thanks.

    The carvings are rather rudimentary. Could be tourist pieces.

    I agree, tourist pieces. Not $50 quality, and not very comfortable to use either.
    It looks like there is an R for the currency. That could be a number of currencies. If it is Indian Rupees, 685 would be under $10.

    That seems right. Well done, A.J.!

    My father had one very similar to the duck head. I believe he bought it , as a tourist memento, in Central or South America. Probably in pesos?

    Those are ornamental for sure. If you want to use them for decoration and not for resale, pay whatever you want. For resale $10-20 each is more like it. I don't sell canes, but do pick them up for a friend who collects. $10 would be about my upper limit for the pair.

    P685 Philippine peso = $15.07...... possibly filipino, but maybe not
