Is this the thick, blunt club-knob, or the thick, sharp club-knob. If someone could post a photo of the alternative of this one, that would be nice.

That is the "thick, blunt tail" for the club knob ampersand, corresponding to the reverse shared by Lees 37 and 45.

I do not have a photo of the "thick, sharp tail" but I can say that it is more tapered at the end and the tip does not curve up slightly as this one does.

To distinguish the two varieties, check the obverse for whether the yard of the spritsail (the one at the front) is beyond the sail. For Lees 37 the yard will be about even with the edge of the sail, and for Lees 45 the yard will clearly extend beyond the sail.

Drat, not a 10-36a ! Maybe if I get a photo of the sharp-ended &, I can break out the tools and see what can be done.
Too bad, then it's PE10-37, yard not past the sail, C to the right of C.

Haha, I know the feeling! The differences between a run of the mill token and a significant rarity can be frustratingly minuscule in this series! Still, yours is a nice example and less common

I believed a recent eBay pickup of mine had a chance of being the ultra-rare Lees 20, only to find that it was 19 (not to my surprise...) Distinguishing varieties in the "double guy group" (Lees 14-22) is a nightmare!
