Hi, the name LUNA was given to the cuff by myself when Ray McKee and I corresponded frequently.
I gave it this name due to the lockcase shape. I cannot shed any other information by to say that Ray McKee asked me to make 2 copies of the cuff for him which I did.
: Thanks for the note. It is the first reference
: anyone has given me to an identical pair of
: handcuffs. Joe Tanner has sent me a picture of a
: related unknown pair similar in appearance, but
: also quite a bit different with a much more
: complicated lock mechanism. His looks like it
: might have been made by the same company.
: I suppose the "luna" designation might
: refer to the crescent shape of the body of the
: handcuff. But who knows? Perhaps someone else will
: be able to tell us.
: thanks again
