Cuff Links

Carl Moulton has a collection of 1,925 cuff links and has been recognised as a record-breaker after two years of work to verify his accomplishment.

Moulton, a pastor at a church in Ontario, explained: "I started collecting cuff links about seven years ago. My daughter one day googled the largest collection in the world and she said, 'Dad you're not that far away from being the world record holder,' so I thought let's go for it then."

Moulton revealed that applying for a place in the record brooks was a more difficult process than he thought.

He told CHVM-FM: "It's more than just sending in a letter and some pictures. I had to get a jeweler to come in and count them all, and the mayor of the town came and he counted and signed that he counted. The hardest part was I had to give a written description of every cuff link."
