    Six point sheet metal barb on single line. Two full length pieces and one stubby known to exist. Barb is 2 inches in length. Is it a warning plate? An early crude military wire?

      Really love this wire! It definitely works as a warning plate. It would also do some damage if you ran into it. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for the compliment packrat-place. I think the history channel should get American Pickers TV show out to your place and get you some national exposure. You have a plethora of nice old crusty antiques!
