Beware of the faked ball and chains being offered on internet auction sites. They all have the name of a famous prison stamped into them as part of the mold. Alcatraz, Fort Smith and Yuma are common names.  Another common trait is the fake patina which is a chemical rust, similar shackle and key. If you handle the ball and your hands are covered in rust it's a FAKE.  If it has the prison name stamped in as shown in the photos below it's a FAKE.
