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.
