Old wine barrel strapping material question

Recommended Posts

Sorry to annoy with this question. I have some of my granddad's old wine barrels. These are at least 80 years old and no longer good for wine but would anyone know if the strapping is wrought iron or steel?


Thanks for your input

Going with their age, they may be iron, do a test as Alan suggested, and let us know the results, I'm curious now!
