Hi Group, I recently bought a nice pair of Smith and Wesson Handcuffs, in Nickel or Chrome plate, probably Nickel. They have two small chain links between the cuffs, these are carefully overwelded at the chain joints. The MARKINGS are CURIOUS, They are marked "Made in U.S.A. MARCAS REGISTRADAS Smith & Wesson Springfield Mass." So of course I am wondering why would "Registration Mark," by marked on this pair in Spanish? They also have a very noticeable hard struck serial number on the opposite cuff from the one marked with Spanish, they look very hard struck, but pretty carefully struck, maybe the numbers are NOT factory? They are "126364." The Trade Mark circular S&W logo is on the cuff opposite the cuff with the writing, it has the heavily stanped but small numbers on the back. Any idea about what these are, when made, for what market, Philippines? Mexico? Spain? Would be very welcome. They are in very nice double locking working condition. The plating is intact but a little dulled in finish shine from what looks like long but careful carrying and use. Any ideas? Value? They also seem to have a rather smallish wrist size capability. I have very big male wrists, they barely fit me, they can fit me, but then there are bigger guys than me around. Thanks for any info. Best regards, Greg.
