Vintage Handcuffs Leg Irons Handcuff Towers 1800's Nice

This is a very nive set of Heavy Duty Leg Irons, They have some dates marked on them like " July 17 88" or something, kind of hard to read, no other markings but I believe them to be towers from there design. The chain is in excellent shape, the cuffs themselves are in great condition (only some minor wear). I DO NOT HAVE A KEY! The Plating is in 90 to 95% atleast! Thank You For Your Viewing and Know that these would be a great addition to your collection!

Question & Answer

Q: Hello, I was looking at these leg irons you have for sale and had a question. In the last picture (#6) in the close up view, is there some type of crack or something in the metal? Thank you

A: It looks like the seam where the two pieces come together, it has a seam like that on all the sides. Two of them just look like a line, and the other two seams have a little plating chipping in that area. I showed I believe the worst chipped side. The discoloration really stands out in the picture ( probably more than if you were actually holding them ). Thanks for your concern and question. - eBay (7 April 09)

This set of leg irons sold for $275 (Plus $10 Shipping).

Bean Cobb Leg Irons not handcuffs

Up for auction is this VERY nice set of Bean Cobb Leg Irons. NOTE: the has on the one cuff has been broken off. However, this set will make for a nice display or parts which are almost impossible to find. Serial number inside the hinges are "1869 and 1879".

Vintage Leg Irons HARVARD LOCK CO Still in box 2 Keys

These old leg irons are still in the original box. The box is marked Harvard Lock Company, Reading , PA, USA. The leg irons are marked Harvard Lock Company, New York. They are still in great shape , with just a little light rust that wiping down with oil should take care of. I don't think they have ever been used since the 2nd key is still attached to the chain with a metal ring. You wouldn't have wanted the prisoner to have access to it. When fully expanded, the cuff measured 5 1/2 inches across. The chain is about 15 inches long . I was not able to remove the key, it probably needs a little oil in the keyhole. It does turn ok and the lock opens. The box lid has a tear on the left side and the front seam on the box has about a 2 inch section where it has seperated. - eBay (19 April 09)

This set of leg irons sold for $36 (Plus $5.50 Shipping).
