Do you know anything about the history of the cane? The "H" reminds me of a brand like you'd see on livestock. Maybe an overall picture would be helpful since the closeups are a bit blurry.

I think your best bet would be an auction house which has someone specializing in folk canes.

Looks like a stockman's cane to me. Either homemade or modified by the former owner would be my guess. I just don't see the marks you say look like a map. Could simply be random wear and tear which just happen to look a bit map-ish. Not saying it isn't one, I just don't see it.

You could try looking up livestock brands with that style H in whatever area you got the cane. That might give you a lead as to who the former owner was.
