Allan’s obsession with manhole cover cufflinks began in New Orleans two years ago. While staying in the French Quarter, we stumbled upon a jewelry store that specialized in custom-made silver jewelry. Allan found a pair of NOLA manhole cover cufflinks that he had to have, but in the end he decided against purchasing them.
Two years later, he still talked about those cufflinks and how he wished had bought them. Then last Christmas, my sister surprised him with a pair and she mentioned how she had discovered a website that sold manhole cover cufflinks from all over the globe.
Upon hearing this news, Allan’s ears perked up and there was a silver glimmer in his eyes. He then devised a plan to collect silver manhole cover cufflinks from various cities as souvenirs. The next manhole cover cufflink up his sleeve would be New York City.
But personally, I am a bit partial to Tampa.
Manhole covers? Now there is something I haven’t given much thought to. Now you’re making want to go out and take pictures of manhole covers!
This is a collectors item you don’t hear about every day. I would have never thought! But I think it is super cool…I love any collection!
I love the play on words (man hole covers). The designs are truly a conversation starter. Now I will pay more attention to these often over looked circles on the road.
What a great idea. I’ve never heard of such a thing … and like the comment from Knees and Paws on the play on words … hadn’t thought of that.

What a cool and different idea. I love different!
