This a great looking old brass lock marked “U.S. CUSTOMS”. Serial number 22361 is stamped on the face of the lock, and “S/2” is stamped on the closing portion above. The amazing feature of this lock is that is has a little door on the side that opens to reveal a counter that tells you how many times the lock was opened by the way of 4 tumblers (like in a combination lock) behind a glass partition. Currently it reads “J 0 3 6“. Unfortunately, I do not have the key. Back of the lock is marked “PAT./NOV.19, 1889/MAY 19, 1891/MADE BY/ SMITH & EGGE/MF’G Co./BRIDGEPORT/CONN.” Another great looking unique item. - As posted on eBay

I have a couple of these locks and it seems that the keys are the same for all the locks, althought it could be that I have a master key. I have another key that only opens one of the locks, so anything is possible.
I designed and constructed this set of handcuffs. The main body of each cuff is made of two pieces of 1 1/4" x 1/4" flat steel for a total thickness of 1/2". The inside of the cuff measures 2 1/8" across and the distance from the bar to inside top of the curve can be adjusted to 3 1/8", 2 5/8" or 2 1/8". The distance between the cuffs with the chain fully extended is 8". The weight is nearly 4 pounds with padlocks (pictured and included). The finish is brushed steel with a coat of wax added to help prevent oxidation. - eBay
They went for $142.50. Not bad.
