    Maybe Cowboys don't like salsa made in New York City but they certainly liked the Buckthorn fence wire. One of the most popular fence wires invented in the 19th century it was distributed to all 48 states and several foreign countries. To attest to the quality and quantity of Buckthorn it may still be found on farms, ranches, and railroad right of way. Thomas V. Allis, of New York City received patent no. 244,726 on July 26, 1881 for metallic barbed fence. Not only did he invent the wire, but he also manufactured it in his own factory: T. V. Allis Manufacturing Company, Trenton, New Jersey. The company produced their own newsletter that was widely distributed. The roll of wire in the photo has a factory splice. The galvanizing process was completed after the wire was barbed, ergo the wrapped splice is galvanized. That distinguishes the factory splice versus a farm splice.

      I had no idea there were so may styles of wire until you came to site . Amazing I just remember getting stuck in it and tearing my clothes trying to get free when going through fence :-) and it is worse when it is electric shock added !!!!!

      Manikin. You were not alone. Growing up my clothes were in tatters from encounters with fences. Some styles of wire were more more vicious than others. It looks like jeans that were torn asunder survived to be worn by the younger generation.

      Great combination of wire and the advertising the promoted it.
