Hi Joe, hi Atame,
at the time being only very little valid informtion on GDR handcuffs is available. To my knowledge the handcuffs in question were made by convict labor in the prison of Brandenburg (which is also true for other police-related items such as holsters etc), and quite obviously the lock mechanism in these cuffs (as well the non-swing-through as the two swing-through models) was designed after the "Russian prison handcuff", which uses similar locks. I would estimate the age of the different models the same way as Atame does, but this is only my assumption.
