Antique 1882 Tower Leg Shackles

Sorry, this item has sold.


Antique 1882 Tower Leg Shackles
Pair of 1880s Leg Shackles made by Tower Manufacturing Co.
They have several patent dates stamped on one of the restraints the last being December 6, 1882. They have a 12-inch heavy duty chain connecting the two restraints. The key works but takes a little finesse to get them unlocked, so with that said it may not be the original key or they just need some oil. The shackles were originally finished in a nickel-platting they have about 50% of the platting left.
If purchased, we will send unlocked.

Circa, 1880s
Marked Dec. 6, 82
Measures, 12” long chain
Condition, as found nickel platting lose in spots.
Please see all pictures as they are part of the description.
