Fred Patella sent me these pictures of his collection.
The Third one down is too small to be a legiron??

There is a pair of "King Breaker" handcuffs that were modified by Houdini and sold at the Radner auction.
I wrote about this event some years ago and the link and photo appear on the home page here.

Well at this point it looks like the count as far as the majority of the collectors who post on this site stands at 20 of each HAND IRONS and LEG IRONS plus 1 of a different version of the cuff which FRED shared with us through a photo to JOE, THANK YOU BOTH! I love it when I can come here and learn something new!

Hi all,

Lars, is right, I have both handcuffs and leg-irons, and I am happy to say that I have 2 sets of the leg-irons.

Best to all

Michael

What about museums? I went through my photos of the Miami police museum, but couldn't find one that clearly showed any of them.

Kind regards

The Smithsonian has 3 handcuffs.
These were the ones the Lincoln Conspirators wore after their arrests.

My son took a picture of them years ago and I hope to find it.
The below page indicates that they were not on display, but obviously they were at a later point in time.

Incidentally, here is another cuff of note in the museum

I have two pairs of wrist cuffs which i think are the two smallest sizes. One measures 11 5/16" in length, measured from end of hinges and 2 5/8" X 2" on the cuff oval. It has the Roman numeral IX or XI depending on how you view it.

The second set is 12 7/16" in length and 2 1/4" X 1 13/16" on the cuff oval and is marked with a 6 or 9 again depending how you look at it.

Two pairs of leg irons one having the five flat links with a length of 8 3/4" from center hinges and 3 3/4 " X 3 1/4" inside of each cuff.

The second set has two long links at each end of a twisted oval five link chain with a total length from center hinges of 11" and the cuffs are 4 1/4" X 3 3/4" inside measurements.
