This pics comes from a documentary about the life of Erich von Manstein. They show his baton on a bank safe, within the family's possession.

That's the best I can do about this baton.

Baton of the Kriegsmarine
Awarded only to Grossadmiral Erich Raeder and Karl Doenitz, this type of baton is the same as the Fieldmarshals, but with the following differences:
- The color of the velvet lining of the tube is dark blue
- At the top of the stick, the eagle is replaced by a gold anchor
- Gold metal anchors are among the crosses of iron and pipe golden eagles

Gro▀admiral Erich Raeder
The award ceremony was on April 1st, 1939.
