You are bidding on Vintage W. H. Shear Police Nippers, from Morrison, IL, Patent August 19, 1884. They are in very good condition and are still operable. I have presented 4 pictures showing nippers closed completely, medium opened locked position and full open locked position. I also have two sets of vintage handcuffs on ebay to auction if you are interested. I accept Paypal payment only and I do not ship outside the USA. I really don't know anything else about this item, I learned all I know from researching the internet. Thank you for looking and good luck with your bidding. Have a nice day. - eBay (26 Jan 2010)
This set of nippers had a high bid of $1,850 (Plus $12 Shipping).
