I'm guessing, and it's just a guess, that the original tip or tips got damaged, then someone removed the metal sheathing and replaced it with new metal. On one of the photos it looks like you can see color change in the wood where original sheathing would have wrapped around the tip. Also, the rivetting doesn't look like what you'd typically see done by the manufacturer, nor does the sheathing at the truncated tip.
