As usual the dumb posts are starting. As far a rarity, the numbers posted here are not very large considering the quantity of other models we collect. Rarity is a relative term and I'm sure there are many more out there owned by those who do not read or post here. Even if there are a hundred or so it is a relatively small in number.

Well said Ron, I would also like to say to Lar's that I misjudged your statement, it appears that they are common among collectors, but not to the normal public !
also not that it would have been impossible for one man (DR. LILLY) to have made them all, but does seem unlikely !
I was hoping the count might help answer some questions about LILLY IRONS, however it seems to have brought up more!

THE SEARCH FOR ANSWER'S CONTINUES !

LK, Your comments about possible answers to questions about Lilly is an on going mystery. Several of us have been doing some research and I hope to summarize our findings and post them in the near future.

A pair of leg irons just sold on eBay. It has seven links on the chain. Don't think this one has been accounted for on your listing and I don't know who got it.

I plan to start another count of the irons at a later time. This time with more details on specific measurements.

Fred Pittella just sent me some great pictures of his Lilly Iron collection. Great stuff!
Thanks Fred.

The long board is from an escape artist by the name Dagmar...the other board is the Lockman board and the Lilly with the H key has providence to Houdini.

why would an inventor use the initial of his first name for the symbol on a key instead of his last name! Doesn't cut it with me as logical.

The key was made and sold by
Harry Handcuff Houdini

The "H" is proper for his keys.
