    I found a set in one of my hotel rooms when I was managing hotels. I’ve found some VERY strange things in hotel rooms over the years.

    Cool find, and something you don't see everyday. My dad had one that was almost exactly match to yours and I remember him telling me they were WWI vintage.

    cool find. My Grandfather was a deputy sheriff in Garvin County, OK back in the 1920's. Besides his sidearm, he also carried a set of knucks. Must have been pretty rowdy back then

    Best way I know of to break your hand. Your finger bones end up
    between the dimes and the dudes skull. Oh, you'll knock the shiznit
    out of someone, but it comes at a price.

    I've got a set of those I bought back in the 70's from a magazine ad. The add showed a pic of the knucks and advertised for "Magnificent Brass Paper Weight". I guess they had to say that to sell them. Mine are unused ever and stored in a box somewhere. Gary

    The fight gets really interesting when the roll breaks and dimes spill all over the place!

    Very cool. I've found razor blades soldered to a small grip handle on school yards but never knuckles

    What "unearth" are you doing out there?

    Those would be considered a relic in today's age. Like others have said, guns are the new tool of the trade. I found a set in a park around 8 or 9 years ago, and those are the only ones I have ever found. Nice find.

    I don't believe it would go to well if you did especially if a LEO were to frisk you.
