Ojibwe club sells for £19,500

Late 18th century Ojibwe casse-tête sells for large sum - see story.
As far as I know warclubs were by this date primarily ceremonial and had distinctive tribal design characteristics which were used as a calling card in a raid. They are popular with reenactors but I believe the trade axe or tomahawk was much more prevalent in the 18th century.
