    Default SS come along handcuffs

    Hey guys. I was on holidays for the past month, I stopped in a little antique shop one day and came along this pair of SS come along cuffs. Iv seen police cuffs like it that are 1950-mid 60's vintage or so. These were stamped SS. there was no other markings, I have not purchased them but had pics sent to me best as possible by the shop owner. I tried researching anything regarding cuffs like this but haven't found much regarding Military use. pics arn't the best, however I was looking at the chain links and in my opinion I thought they were a little more modern. Round even chain and either welded or hammered together. I was wondering if anyone could help with a second opinion on these. I know SS things are heavily faked and replicated, but not having seen anything like this or that kind of chain from that era being used I was unsure.

    An old instrument that some one enhanced with a SS stamp. The stamp serves no purpose except to decieve.

    Nice photos

    COME ALONG HANDCUFFS:
    Originally, these were manufactured and used in USA from the 1800s. When they introduced
    Key lock in the U.S.A. they sold all "come-along" handcuff to Germany,
    where they were used by the police, and later the SD and Gestapo.
    Most manufactured before WWII are manufacturer marked, however there are a number of these manufactured after 1945 (Unlabeled)
    I personally do not know of anyone being produced or rebadged with German stamps during WWII.

    Here a few photo of mine.
