Sold OUt
This is the real deal made of mild steel and left in its natural state so it shows some minor wear and light rust as if a prisoner had just turned it in after their sentence was up.  The ball weighs approximately 4-3/4 lbs and the steel chain and manacle with key are approximately 1-1/4 lbs.  Normally secured to a prisoner's leg as punishment for various crimes, the ball and chain was in use in both Britain and the USA as an accepted form of punishment  Not only does it make a great historical display, but it's fun for re-enactors, theater, even bachelor parties.  31" chain.
