      gotwire, have you ever been to the "Barbed Wire Capital of the World" in LaCrosse, KS. They have quite a display of barbed wire. I use to go to LaCrosse many years ago when we held our telephone show there.

      Hi ttomtucker, I've been to LaCrosse several times, for the wire show and Symposium. Our museum in TX is bigger although they have more wire. There's a couple of telephone related collectors that still come to the wire shows. Our next show is a few weeks in Elk City, OK.

      I live in Texas and have a some barbed wire that's been on our farm for as long as I can remember. A contractor was over at my house and saw it and said to me "Do want to sell that wire"? I asked him what do you want that old wire for and he said to me "you don't know what you got do you" ? Then he told me it's very old and rare, so I said Not For Sale.
      Here's my problem, I haven't been able to find a website to look up and see wher and when it was made. Any help ?

      Tony, the best way is to post a pic of yours and ask your question.
    8. gotwire gotwire, 10 years ago
      Tony, post or send me a picture of your wire.
