A second set of Marlin Bottleneck handcuffs sold recently.

Offered for sale today are a pair antique handcuffs manufactured by the Marlin Firearms Company, New Haven, Connecticut.

These magnificent and extremely rare handcuffs were manufactured by the Marlin Firearms Company which were patented by Robert H. Daley.

The handcuffs feature a double ratchet system that was very difficult to open without the key. They are fully functional and include the original key.

These handcuffs were by lawmen in the late 1890's through the early 1910's. They show the marks of honest use and the effects of an unknown number of arrests.

The handcuffs are steel with nickel plating. About 80% to 85% of the original finish is left (which is very rare to find). The surface finish has been left in it's original state (rather than buffed off) in order to maintain its character and collectible value. - eBay
This pair sold for $381.50 (Plus $15 shipping) That is much more than the last pair profiled here which went for $300. Then again it appears to be in much better condition.
