i believe the number means how many times it has been drawn through a drawplate to make wire. since you can only go a fraction of an inch at a time when drawing wire to make it smaller, you can measure the wire by the number of times it was drawn. somthing that was drawn only 12 times is going to be alot thicker than somthing drawn 24 times.
