RC. Back in 1998 I purchased a home and the sellers, Rosemary and Clarence found these branding irons when they were packing up and were very gracious and gave me them to me. I in turn gave them to my father as they are his initials as well. When my dad died in 2001 I moved them to the floor of my living room. I have tried several different ways to display them but haven't landed on anything I like. Last week I tried them on a few tables for a change.
