This fascinating cane gives new meaning to the phrase "worth its weight in gold." With a diminutive scale built right into the handle, this cane allows one to test gold coinage by comparing the weight of the coin in question to actual gold coins. This cane is also equipped to perform "acid tests" to check for authentic gold using the glass vial hidden within the shaft. Gold resists all but the most corrosive acids. If a small sliver is taken from the coin and exposed to nitric acid without dissolving, it is proven to be gold. The same type of test can be done using vinegar, whereby the sliver is submerged for 15 or so minutes and, if it does not turn, will also prove the coin is composed of gold.
