Hi

I don't believe so. The Lilly leg irons and handcuffs are quite common. Nobody really keeps track on them I believe.

I agree with Lars a count has not been kept as far a I know. Information has been gathered by one collector on the various sizes and finishes of them, but I don't know how complete it may be.

There has been one group that has been doing limited research on the irons and I hope to post some information in the near future.

Thanks Ron, will be looking forward to your info. Lar's although you have more experience then myself I would have to agree with the ANON above, considering the fact that no one can even name whom LILLY was or even the correct spelling of the name, the limited number out there,the limited number you see available, the few fact's as to whom made them,ect.

I'm not wishing to disagree with an expert but I do believe the number of REAL LILLY'S is smaller then you think

Hopefully Ron's future post can spread some light on the subject!

I recently read about the MET. POLICE IN WASHINGTON D.C. from 1800"s on, an due to the income of the time's being $100.oo a year per officer and the fact that they had to buy their own eguip. and the budget of the force in general we may be overestimating the number of all types of cuffs and leg iron that were really produced at the time !

Hi!

I'm sorry if anyone got me wrong as it wasn't my intention to talk them down. I didn't say these restraints are not desirable to
collect but nobody keeps track on the number of them out there. My impression is that there are quite a few of them in collections
but I might be wrong. Maybe they are fewer than I think.

They are seen on the market from time to time, some of them are the real thing and some are later repros.

I would be great if somebody feel for building up an inventory of both the leg irons and the handcuffs.


Lars

I love the Lilly cuff and leg irons due to the hard historical tie to them. With that said I too agree that their are a decent amount of them out there albeit still pretty hard to come by. I had to wait for a handful of years to get my first one and then all of a sudden I had 3. Odd how things can come in waves. I have 2 and can think of about 21 handcuffs including a few museums. I reckon if the number is 50, 75, 100, in the whole world it's still a pretty low number considering production numbers of today standards. With eBay and the Internet hidden gems are getting harder to find so regardless of how you define the word "rare"...if you don't have one, I suggest you snatch one up if you get the chance.

If I understand JOSHUA correctly he has 2 leg irons and 1 hand iron (cuffs), if so the count at this point is:

Lilly cuffs : 9
Lilly leg irons : 12
