Wire Collectors Association. One of the delegates,
Mrs. June Sloan of Saginaw, arrives at the Panhandle
Plains Museum with appropriate accessories, brace-
lets made of gold-plated barbed-wire.
Association president Chuck who lives

were granted a few months later. Large-scale pro-
duction began in 1873.
