  1. Hi
    As the owner of the cuffs depicted in this poster, I would love to get a nice clear copy of it.
    I hope to either get one already made or get one printed on quality card stock 8 1/2 X 11.
    When I bought the cuffs, I put in a binder all the information about the 3 trials and have letters from Hardeen selling these cuffs to Nugent.
    I also have letters from Nugent to Dr. Wresch and from Wresch to Tannar and then to me.
    I wish to have a copy of this poster on the outside of the binder.

    This poster is a difficult one to find in good enough clarity to get a nice copy of.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would even like to buy a larger one to put in a frame and get a smaller copy of it for my binder.


    1. Hi Mark!

      Lupe Nielsen sells reproductions. I'm sure these are struck from the original and should be the best quality you'll find:

      The Houdini Historical Center sold reproductions back in the 90s. You could probably track one of these down on eBay, etc. But I doubt the quality will be what you'll get from Lupe.

      If you ever want to do a guest post about your cuffs, I'd love to share it! I'm not even sure I've ever seen them.
