Very nice find.
Was that from the same hole as the others? That was quite a find.
Can't wait to see this one it is cleaned up! Very unique wire.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

I have never seen a wire like that. Be extremely careful cleaning it since the wire is rotten all the way thru.
Added: I see half of the strap has been removed before dumping it.

That's some thick and fierce looking mud! Looks like cement! The wire almost looks like some sort of stretched out spring the soldier used to make it with. A Nice find, for sure!

Really nice job of cleaning. Also looks like spring in you're back yard.
