There are two models of the Iron Claw manufactured
by Argus Mfg. of Chicago as well as some variations.
There are also more recent Jay-Pee versions of the
The first model was patented in 1934, the second
in 1937. The main difference is the round lock
mechanism that you raise to unlock the cuff. It
is flush with the barrel of the cuff in the
Model 1, but it has a raised overlapping design
in the Model 2.
The Model 1 is a somewhat rare cuff. The Model 2
is very common and there is usually one for sale
on ebay for $50-$60.
