  1. A fantastic new find !! The Kelly tack ribbon is about the only one that is close, but that patent used regular round nails. The flat nails are unique. How long is the specimen, how far apart are the ...
  2. Looks like 1376 B from Hagemeier. I don't own one of these beauties but two have sold in the Antique Barbed Wire Society auction. One in Sept. 2010 for $80 and another in May of 2011 for $320. That is...
  3. Thanks for the info. GateKeeper. When I obtained my metal Mihill's from Doug Ewald, I was thrilled. Some time later I heard of this single wood specimen and nearly passed out. It is truly spectacular ...
  4. You have a great collection. Where did you pick up such mighty fine wires? When can we see the other goodies in your collection? John did a great job on the displays, thanks for sharing them with the ...
  5. Thanks for the comments. The 27 C Sergeant has been given a new number. It is now 1673 B. The McAlister came from Doug Ewald who acquired it from Jim Goedert awhile back. It has 3 barbs which are moun...
  6. Fantastic specimen !!! I can't imagine how beautiful a fence of this would look back in the day. Do you know where Jim originally picked this up? Does the axle go all the way to the corners through th...
  7. Great bottle ! Most don't realize how rare these labeled bottles are now a days. To have survived more than 100 years tucked away in some drawer or cabinet is amazing. I know of at least one labeled P...
  8. Any history on the Smith specimen?
  9. The Woodruff-Hutchins is a cool looking wire. Kind-of like an inch worm. What is the typical barb count per 18"?
  10. I don't have it. I believe our friend from Stanley, NM had one last year when I visited. Most likely it is long gone, but you should ask him anyway.
  11. No. I posted an image of my Riter. It came from the Jim Goedert collection.
  12. Hagemeier has it listed as #55 G but Glover published it as well (G-997) as did Dalton (D-74). The information I got came from Dalton's pocket guide published in 1989.
  13. Well, the first image looks to be a Westgarth patent, probably #968 B if the barb is and arrow or #967 B if the barb is an H. I believe number 2 is a Decker patent #546 B Number 3 is the Simon #164...
  14. Awesome collection. I know the 4th from the bottom is a Ritter but much wider than the example I have with many more undulations. I will be posting my example soon. I love Watson's butterfly link on ...
  15. Fantastic collection.
  16. It has only 2 but there both in great shape. Picked it up in Bullhead City earlier this year.
  17. Thanks for the compliment. I'm using a Nikon D-200 digital camera with a 28-70 mm zoom lens and a flash. Sometimes I use a 60 mm macro lens to get real close. I have a black background about 2 feet aw...
  18. Is #3 a shorty as well? I heard about an 18" specimen in the Goedert collection but I'm not sure it was offered for sale.
  19. I am a member of the ABWS and have been collectining wires on and off for more than 30 years. I have been re-energized with the dispersal of the Goedert collection. So many great rarities going to new...
  20. Great wires. There seems to be at least 2 different types of plates used in the Cherry/Wheeler. My specimen has a width of 1.25" and a height of 1.5". The cuts between the points are more extreme leav...
  21. I have this wire as well and believe it to be a variation of the Kelly patent #208,399 from Barriers by Campbell and Alison p. 84. There is also another image in the Early Barbed Wire Specimens exhibi...
