Wait, what?

These "Houdini handcuffs" recently sold at auction for a whopping $16,520. What makes this all the more remarkable is the auction provided no provenance whatsoever, and I'm not sure having been displayed at the America Circus Museum in Sarasota adds much. Even an authenticated pair of (ungaffed) Houdini handcuffs would not sell for anywhere near this price. Maybe the buyer knows something we don't?

You can follow the discussion of this at Kevin Connolly's Conjuring History Facebook Group. Below are links to some more curious "Houdini handcuffs".
