  1. That is an early A&H logo stamp, see if you can clean up the front foot with a wire wheel and post a pic.
  2. take a closeup picture of the side of the anvil, horn facing right. Sometimes remnants of a logo stamp can be seen.
  3. If you clean the side with the horn facing right, you might be able to locate some remnants of the A&H logo stamp.
  4. Can you post a pic of the side logo stamp? I'd like to add it to the logo database for A&H.
  5. Gzeus, how about a serial number picture?
  6. First one is an early Arm & Hammer logo. Please post a picture of the serial number on the front foot.
  7. Can you post a picture of the side Trenton logo stamp too?
  8. Pictures would certainly help, also picture of the serial number on the front foot.
  9. Can you post a picture of the side logo stamp and another of the serial number ?
  10. According to AIA, the year of production is 1900. thanks for the pics!
  11. You have a Hay Budden anvil that was marked for a hardware brand.
  12. Can you post pictures of the side logo stamp, and the serial number?
  13. That anvil would be gone in a heartbeat at $325. prices have risen for anvils.
  14. The section of the face that you say is rounded over is the radius ground in at the factory when new. Most later A&H's and Tretons have this, it is quite common for both makes. Here's another example from that vintage of A&H:
  15. Even though your serial is rather unreadable, I can tell you that your logo stamp style is the last one used in U.S. Production. That stamp was used from 1939 to the end of CF&I's run in the 1950's.
  16. With a serial number like that, it would not be A&H. Most likely Trenton. Take a closeup pic of the serial number. different companies used different character styles for their number stamps.
  17. No serial # on Soderfors, all cast steel, top notch anvil and one of the best. I don't know the dates for Soderfors making them for Belknap, but I'm guessing early 1900's. There may be a year date on the Soderfors somwhere, many times they stamped it
  18. Incorrect, Belknap was made by several anvil makers, A&H being the main one. (several incorrect items in AIA...) Yours is a Soderfors, made in Sweden. You can see the casting line going up the center of the anvil below the horn and heel.
  19. Can you post a closeup picture of the logo stamp on the other side of the anvil?
