This is a very cool seal padlock and it looks like the buyer got a real deal on it.

An unusual French seal padlock. The disk does not rotate but punches holes to void the seal. The lock is in excellent condition with the expected very minor dents and scratches from use. It is mechanically perfect. The lock is supplied with an operating key. All stampings are crisp and clear. The lock is in excellent condition SIZE: 3.0"w x 4.5"h x 0.75"d. 1lb 2.4oz - eBay (8 Nov 2010)

Decker ChainLok REO Padlock

This lock is very interesting, simply because it looks cool.

What your bidding on is a very interesting rare old padlock. On the brass plate there is a wing designed logo which says "REO" in red. Across the top of the plate it says Decker Chainlok. It is stamped No S141182. The key is the original number B2427 which is also stamped on the brass key area of the lock. One of the loops is permanent and the other loop comes out with the turn of the key. The lock is in A-1 shape and works great. I haven't attempted to clean it up as I will leave that to the winner. - eBay (14 Nov 2010)

This padlock had a high bid of $227.50 (Plus $7.50 Shipping).

A. Rankin Handcuffs

This is a nice set of cuffs. As of yet, I do not own a pair.

What we have for sale is an authentic antique set of A. Rankin handcuffs. These cuffs were patented in 1866. This is the "small size" version. They have the patented "A. Rankin Phila" markings on them as well as a "Patent Dec 10th 186" marking. The locks and springs of these cuffs are completely intact. When trying to pull apart in locked position they do not come apart. For as old as these restraints are they are in pretty good shape. They do come with the original key. These would be an excellent addition to anyones collection. If anyone would like more pictures, please contact me and I will accomodate you. Also, any and all questions are welcome. I spoke with a collector to make sure as to give a factual listing. - eBay (14 Nov 2010)

This set of cuffs had a high bid of $865.50 (Plus $9.95 Shipping).

Battlefield Earth Original Movie Prop- Handcuffs

I can't really call these handcuffs, but include them as they are movie cuffs.

Padded Handcuffs

Original prop used during the filming of Battlefield Earth. Based on the best selling book series by L Ron Hubbard of Scientology fame, starring John Travolta, Barry Pepper, Forrest Whittaker & Kelly Preston. The actual prop is pictured above and used during the filming of the movie. I couldn't find this one when watching the movie but I think it's a handcuff or anklecuff.
