The cuff you have is German. I believe it was made by Kayser pre WW2 (circa: late 1930's). I also have one in my collection. It was made with a long chain for prisoner escort details where the officer would be cuffed to a prisoner he was escorting. Regards, Steve Santini: Can anyone identify this adjustable Darby on a long
: chain? The size of the cuffs is very small.
: Dick Wresch has a picture of a similar cuff in his book
: an he identifies them as Japanese from the WWII era along
: with a story of how he acquired them. Others have
: pointed out that they look German.
: There is also a pair of these pictures on Yossie's
: If anyone has any information or ideas about these
: cuffs please post a message.
