Janet,

"The Devil's Rope"

This particular strand is called the Glidden Large Square Strand, two large square twisted strands with the two point barb on one strand, Glidden patent #157, 124 issued in 1874 by Joseph F. Glidden of De Kalb, IL. In the final analysis, this Glidden patent and the Baker patent # 273,219 issued in 1883, were the most practical and succesful.

In 1874 Joseph F. Glidden, a sixty year old farmer from Illinois invented and patented barbed wire. Glidden fashioned barbs on an improvised coffee bean grinder, placed them at intervals along a smooth wire and twisted another wire around the first to hold the barbs in a fixed position, exactly as shown in your prize photo. He established the Barb Fence Company at De Kalb, Illinois. Several other people claimed they had invented similar products and Glidden became involved in a three year legal battle. Glidden was eventually declarded the rightful inventor of barbed wire and he went on to become one of the most successful and richest men in the United States.
Would you believe it? From a single barb of wire? Amazing, as is your capture!
