LILLY Iron c1860

Here is a nice example of a Lilly Iron. However it seems to have been priced too high.

Up form auction is this very nice clean LILLY Iron. The LILLY has a nice smooth brown patina with a nice amount of original finish. The LILLY's hinges open and closed very smoothly, as well as the locking screw/nut. The LILLY is in all original condition, has not been worked on or altered. There are no identifying markings that I have noticed on the LILLY. The key is not original, but is period correct and works well in the Lilly. This style handcuff was used to restrain the Lincoln conspirators and slave during the civil war era. This is a great opportunity for someone to add this desirable piece to their collection, and is in great condition! Measurements: Length: 13 1/8 inches long Width: 1½ inches The buy it now price includes shipping within the United States. Outside United States bidders should know that this item may not be able to be shipped with insurance to some countries! - eBay (22 April 2012)
This Lilly Iron had a 'Buy-it-Now' price of $1,475 (Plus Free Shipping) but did not sell. It was listed earlier with a 'Buy-it-Now' price of $1,650 and $1,550 but did not sell at the higher prices either.
