Rankin Handcuffs

Here is a nice set of Rankin handcuffs:

Excellant pair of handcuffs from the Civil war period not sure of the exact date because the patent date 186 and the last number is missing on the both cuffs. Has the maker as A.Rankin Philadelphia. These are not reproductions but original. They do have the original Key to open them. Any questions please ask. - eBay (11 Jan 2010)

This set of handcuffs had a high bid of $1,085 (Plus $7 Shipping).

According to the U.S. patent register they were patented in February 20, 1866.
