In Reply to: Unknown German Bottom Key Handcuffs posted by J. Lauher on January 17, 2001 at 12:36:10:
I have one identical to the unmarked one. I got it from a European collector, and he insists it is German. I think the workmanship is more like Russian cuffs of the same size and vintage.
: At the top of the forum page I have posted
: pictures of two unusual handcuffs which I think
: were made in Germany, although the one at the top
: was sold to me by a dealer who said it was a Russian
: handcuff. The second one has National Socialist party
: markings on it, thus dating the cuff from 1930s or WWII period.
: The key hole is located on the bottom of the lock case.
: The key screws in and then pulls down to open the cuff.
: It is of course possible that the handcuff without markings,
: the one sold to me as Russian was either made in East Germany
: after the war or in Russian using machinery moved from Germany
: to Russia after the war.
: Does anyone know who made these handcuffs?
: Any ideas would be welcome.
