    Have fun ID'ing these. I don't have the energy to look them up. I'll add numbers in a couple of days. Number three is a RARE WIRE. Only three full size cuts and a shorty (mine) Folded sheet metal ribbon with integral four point barb. The ribbon is .5 inches

      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 #1648 B. It is amazing to me that this wire is so rare yet patented in 1969. Even if there was a minor production run, there should be more around somewhere.
      Number 4 is the Munson Double "Z" #158 B. a wire on my want list.

      Railman, your correct. Thanks for looking these up. I'm pretty proud of these wires, especially the Simon 1648B.
      #1 - 967 B
      #2 - 546 B
      #3 - 1648 B
      #4 - 158 B

      Hi SWAP41 Welcome to CW. The story goes, there was enough of this wire in length to get three (3) 18" cuts and one shorty wire (mine) . Don't know where they went, but they went FAST!! I was so lucky to get mine, and thanks to R.S. for it.
