Head of the staff

The Grand Nagus' staff, also called the Sceptre of the Grand Nagus, was an item that was held by the Ferengi Grand Nagus. (DS9: "The Nagus", "Rules of Acquisition", "The Search, Part I") It was traditional for an individual to kiss the head of the staff upon receiving advice from the Nagus. (DS9: "The Nagus", "The Search, Part I")

The Grand Proxy could carry a replica of the staff as a symbol of the authority granted to him by the Grand Nagus. (VOY: "False Profits")

In 2371, Zek gave the staff to Benjamin Sisko to prove to Quark that he wanted him to help the USS Defiant to locate the Founders. (DS9: "The Search, Part I")

While living in the Vic's Las Vegas Lounge holoprogram, Nog commented that a cane given to him by Vic Fontaine (a replica of a cane used by Errol Flynn) was reminiscent of the Grand Nagus' staff. (DS9: "It's Only a Paper Moon")

As he passed the reigns of power to Rom, Zek also gave him the staff, a symbol of the power it represented. (DS9: "The Dogs of War")

The Grand Nagus' staff was sold off in the It's A Wrap! sale and auction, though the bottom half was broken off and missing. [1]
The Ferengi face seen on the Grand Nagus' staff was originally sculpted to resemble Armin Shimerman's Quark. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion (p. 39))
In Star Trek Online, Nog carries the staff with him to get another Ferengi to surrender a Krenim artifact. He later reveals that it wasn't the actual staff but Rom's "second best".
