Doug   ...  I haven't any experience with this type of stick, but looking closely at one of your pictures, it would almost appear as though the perch is actually a "cap" affair, and it has knurling around the lower circumference.     The presence of knurling usually indicates that something has been designed to screw on and screw off.     Knurling provides assistance in getting a grip on whatever needs to be taken apart.   There is also a recess locating just under the perch cap, which is also a good indicator of something that's been threaded into place.   I'd be willing to bet the perch cap threads onto that collar at the top of the stem.    It's worth a shot.     I've "doctored" one of your pictures to help explain my "theory".

Ok, Doug.   I wasn't sure if you were referring to that perch cap or not.    Here's a CRPF link from 2013, where the issue was discussed, and several members explained the process.    As soon as they mentioned "pin", it jogged my memory.    There's a pin in the perch assembly you need to remove.

Here's the link : http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=9336.0

Yes, that would be the pin that has to be driven out.     Here's a better picture.
