Those are actually quite valuable and should be with a museum for preservation.

I bet they are fake. Why the fuck would they be labeled like that?

Edit: Fuck you all. That metal label is an extravagance a slave trader would not pay for. Especially if one had to buy tons of these.

I'm saying anyone who used them would know what they were used for. The label would be unnecessary. A metal label would increase the cost. If someone had to transport 100s of slaves the metal label would cost a fortune to add. Please... Kill yourself.

You seem to think that slavers were the smartest poeple around back then.

They were just glorified hicks back then.

  1. No. You really are fucking retarded.

  2. It's only labeled for woman and child. The label might be necessary to differentiate between women/children and larger men.

  3. I doubt cuffs of this quality would be used for mass transportation. These probably detained blacks for short periods of time.

  4. Fuck you.

As if a slave trader wouldn't use it on a small man. The labeling is fucking retarded and unnecessary. Do cops carry labeled men/women cuffs?

I hope you are sterile so you can't procreate and I hope everyone you love dies. I hope you get cancer.

Dude, they are fake, but the label is not the reason. They are labeled for size reasons, look again: they don't ratchet, they aren't one size fits all.

>A Fantasy Cuff is one that never really existed and is often sold as a rare cuff. These usually have a name plate or a name stamped into it. T.H. Porter--dealer in slaves, Alcatraz Prison, Folsom, Yuma Prison, Negro Woman or Child, Joliette and Andersonville Prison are among such markings that can be found on very real looking cuffs. It is believed that none of these prisons ever stamped their names into actual cuffs, so if you are interested in buying an authentic cuff from any of these prisons, stay away from these fakes.

You poor bastard. Make a good point and the hive stings you to death. I think you are right, and even if you are not, it is an intelligent critical question--that no one has answered.

EDIT: Yep. It is answered below. They show up on eBay from time to time. They're novelties.

  2. It was still answered.

  3. It was not a good point.

The right one says (i think)

>Property of Georgetown County Plantation Po(lice?)

While there were most likely buyers, there probably weren't slave traders transporting hundreds or thousands of slaves at a time in Georgetown, SC.
