    Milwaukee anvil

    I have these as well, sometimes colored in normal "Brooks Blue" paint. I know one I have is a perfect 28# with the Milwaukee tag. I believe they are normal Brooks anvil with an additional label badge.
  2. Lulian, yours is a later one with solid steel top half. Can you post a picture of the serial number on yours?

    Trenton year ID?

    Thanks for the pics! Yes this is a quite early Trenton. The vertical "SOLID WROT" is typical of this early serial range. AIA indicated 1899 date.

    ACME anvil made by Trenton (Columbus Forge & Iron Co.). 1916 ballpark according to AIA.
  6. That logo stamp style would be from the 1905-1911 ballpark time frame.

    Trenton Anvil Brittany France

    As Frozen Forge stated, this serial is A166529, there is no doubt from that style of logo stamp on the side. Made in Columbus, Ohio USA.
  8. The "..ENT.." is visible of the Trenton logo. 124k serial is 1914 according to AIA. That is the 3rd style logo stamp that Trenton used in U.S. Production.

    Can we get a picture of the side logo stamp and serial number? I'd like to add it to the A&H logo database

    arm & hammer anvil

    How about a picture of the serial number on the front foot under the horn? That is an earlier vintage stamp. WARRANTED in an arc over the arm logo, and SOLID and then WROUGHT on each side of the logo.

    Trenton made in Germany. It won't have a serial number. Base is forged, not cast.

    who made me ??

    There were nine different logo stamp styles that Trenton used. Some differences are very subtle, so if you ever get a chance to post a photo I'd like to add it to the logo database.

    Any chance of getting a closeup of the logo stamp area on the other side of the anvil?

    Trenton or arm and hammer?

    Boker Trentons do NOT have an hourglass shape to them. They were forged bases with flat bottoms. Some very early U.S.-made Trentons also had forged bases, before switching to the first style of cast base.
  22. On top of the purchase price, shipping, import duties, and brokerage fees are not cheap.....
  23. Please post closeup pictures of the side Trenton logo stamp, and another of the serial number!

    Anvil Type and #'s

    That is a Fisher Blacker anvil, made for the Blacker power hammer. The cutout was for the transversing hammer head and allowed half on, half off hammer blows. Do a YouTube search for Blacker Power Hammer and you'll see it in action. There were at least 5 different anvil makes that made anvils for the Blacker hammer over time.
