    I was planting little cedar trees at our back property line and ran into this barbwire. It was about 8" in the ground and I had to cut two roots about 2" across that had grown over the wire. We found it on a web site and it called it "Crandal's Telegraph Splice" and said it was pattented in 1881. Where and how long was it made, we are in northeren Michigan.

      Cady Barbed Link, I doubt if much was produced after the turn of the century. They did produce "A Bunch!!" while it was being made.
