It's hard to tell from the pic. The only differences I can see are the markings (The 500 is marked model 500, and the 300 is marked model 300). The edges are sharper on the 500. Otherwise they appear to be the same.
: Hello Stan,
: Thanks for your reply. In which way is the model 300 different from the model 500? So is it possible that I have the model before the 300?
: I have attached a photo of the cuffs.
: Regards, Ron
: : Hi Ron:
: : Sounds like you might not have the model 300. The ones that are identified as model 300 on the box and on the cuff, are marked "model 300" on the cuff and they have a # before the serial number. The model before that is identical, but is not identified as to model number, and does not have the # before the serial number. Both are fairly common. I still have them new in the box at $ 40.00 for collectors.

: : : Recently I bought a pair of handcuffs which was told to be Peerless model 300. However they look like the model 500 and there are no markings except for: "The Peerless Handcuff Co. Springfield MA" and the patent no. 1531451-1872857. Are these real model 300's and what's the age and are they rare? Any info would be appreciated.
