    Harry Houdini Used Handcuffs. A pair of handcuffs which were owned and used by master illusionist and escape artist Harry Houdini. These heavy cuffs, probably iron, measure 10" in length, are approximately 3" wide at the actual cuff when closed, are conjoined by five links, and, of course, come with a key. This amazing piece of entertainment and magic history comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Sidney Radner, a protege of the escape artist Hardeen (Houdini's Brother). Before Houdini died, he instructed his brother to destroy his magic accouterment. Instead, Hardeen kept the items and then passed them along to Radner, the curator of the Houdini Museum in Las Vegas and the honorary curator of the Houdini Historical Center. He is also the owner of the largest collection of Houdini memorabilia in the world. A bit worn, naturally, but still in fine condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
