ANTIQUE THUMB CUFFS. THESE ARE HIGH QUALITY AND WORK QUITE WELL. COMES WITH ONE KEY. THE ONLY LETTERING I SEE IS "PAT. PEND." IF YOU COLLECT THE OLD WEST, EARLY HAND CUFFS ETC, THIS IS FOR THE DISCRIMINATING COLLECTOR. THESE MEASURE 1 3/8" TALL AND CLOSES TO 3". - eBay
The bidding started at $0.01 and went for over $1,172 (Plus $7.40 shipping). Unreal.
I do not have any thumbcufs at the moment but they are on my shopping list. I was planning on getting a new set, but I guess I need to check out what other antiques might be available. Then again, I can buy over 100 new pairs of thumb cuffs for that this one set went for. Or 5 or 6 antique sets of handcuffs. Maybe even a set of Bean Giant handcuffs.....
