You are getting a nice collection of Olympic items

Great collection. Thanks for sharing.
The 'come-along' handcuff (for leading a prisoner along with only one of his wrist in the 'cuff' and the ability to twist to encourage the arrested person to comply), which was shown in the beginning of this thread - do you know the origin of that?
Not where you got it from, but whether or not it was specific to the German occupation forces or just a generic police item.
I have encountered it in other countries, but as these also used to be occupied countries during WWII, I really cant say, where the hand 'cuff' originated.
Norwegian: Jeg blir trist når jeg ser alt du har, jeg som syntes jeg hadde en ganske bra samling :/
English: I am sad when I see all the items you have, I who thought I had a pretty nice collection :/
Dang! I was offered one many years ago in very good condition and costing only peanuts, but I declined as cuffs didnt have my interest.
I fail to remember if there were any stamps.
Thanks for speedy info.
