My guess is that they are pre-1932, when patent 1872857 was issued. I gather that they are wider and heavier then the "pre-model 300" cuffs. I would guess that they are also less common because of their age. I have no idea as to the value but I also have a birthday someday.
: Hello there,
: The last patent number and the serial # indicate a pair of pre- model 300 standard Peerless. I am not familiar with the other patent dates and could not find any of my Peerless collection with all 3 on the bow. The pre 300, correct me if I am wrong guys, is the most common and mass made cuff by Peerless and most are still in use today by us "unwilling to change "cops. My guesstimate on value would be about 20 to 25 bucks, as they are still available in old stock in cop shops everywhere for 18 to 22 new ,police price. Hope that helped a little, Tim BTW, my birthday is next week , you could just send them here hee hee.
: We have a pair of Peerless handcuffs in the original box with 2 keys. patent #'s 1157135, #1161562 & #1531451. Mdl #99895. Does anyone have an idea of value ($20.00 or $100.00?). We're not sure if they are worth anything. They are in working condition & the nickel plating is still good with minor wear. Box is good with some surface dirt but ok. Thanks for your help.
