I bought a few articles from the estate of a recently deceased WWII vet. Among the items was this unsual skewer type device surmounted with the figure of a boar. Does anyone recognize it as a piece of German hunting paraphernalia? The only marking is what looks like the word "GARANTIED" faintly stamped on the stem. Here are some pics.

Or,for a keen member of the King Richard III Society. A white boar was a personal heraldic device of this English king, the last to fall in battle sword in hand.
