Joe, I am honored to be on the list for the 4th time in a row. I am in several of the lists from other years as well.
Top Dead Center in this year's case.
This yearly list contains some of the nicest and rarest cuffs that the world has to offer. The best of the best, if you will.
I will probably never know how much work goes into producing this, Joe but it certainly is appreciated by me as well as others who I know comment on it.

Do we know who belongs to the Thewlis Griffith or Hiatt locking Nippers from 2009 and 2013? Being the newest inductee to the club, I wonder if these were mentioned in the blog about these rare nipper/cuffs from a month or two ago.

Thanks again for your time and dedication doing this.
Happy New Year to you, the winners of this award and those inspired to be on the list for next year.

Mark

I wonder if these McKenzies have been added to the register of known examples and the same for the E.R.s
I don't recall seeing the ball and chain E.R.
What a fantastic item that is.

Side Note about McKenzenzie Mitts. Does anyone recognize this collection? Or has anyone bought anything from it? I talked to an antiquities dealer who bought it from an estate. He broke it down and sold it off. The Mitts went on ebay last year for just over $3000. He said his Mitts we "blued." They appear to be. I have never seen a pair of blued Mitts. Has anyone? Did anyone of us buy these? And were they added to the registry? He claims that they had the original key with them.

That high price for set of Hiatts is unusual. It may be an error or perhaps it was for multiple sets if you read the full listing.

The cuffs in the pic for the "Hiatts Hinged" appear to have a post key and no double lock pin on the key. I believe that these are just junk taiwan cuffs that are all over Ebay. I have no clue why they fetched that high of a price? You can buy them for $10. If we cab get a list of the bidders, I will sell the next highest bidder, my set. I will cut him a good deal. $350 and I will pay the shipping! LOL!

Congratulations to the winners. And Happy New Year to you all.

This is the eleventh year for the Handcuffs of the Year on the Forum.
Put them all together and you would have a very nice collection.
