Subject: Re: [CHS] What is a Blackjack

To me - a Blackjack was a club. It was made of black leather and filled
with sand. Carrying a club is illegal, so If you were "copped" you could
empty the sand out and it became a harmless tobacco pouch. Or, was this just a
"Liverpool" thing ?
In earlier times, a Blackjack was a leather wine botttle.
