    Anvil Identification

    General shape, serial number number style, serial number location, upper numbers on near heel on opposite side, the style of the ACME stamp. No question.

    Age of this Arm and Hammer Anvil

    Very interesting weight stamp, the deeper markings are "81", and the lighter ones are "79'. A&H would often have their weight number spread out to each side of the logo, so 81 or 79 would be appropriate spacing.

    138 is the weight in pounds. This is a very early U.S.- production Trenton anvil, made by Columbus Forge & Iron Co. in Columbus OH. Serial number is from first year of production for them, 1898.

    New Anvil - Help me ID

    Columbus Forge & Iron Co, most likely marked Trenton. Many in this serial range were stamped for hardware companies. Please post a closeup of the other side of the anvil! Sometimes remnants of the logo stamp can be made out.

    Anvil Identification Help Needed

    Oak, yours is the second style of logo stamp A&H used in production. They used several different styles of stamps through their history. Please post a picture of the serial number on the front foot under the horn.

    Arm and Hammer IDentification

    Thank you, AIA doesn't have concrete dates for this serial range, anywhere from the late 1920's to the early 1930's.

    Arm and hammer can someone date it?

    1912 ballpark according to AIA.

    Arm and hammer can someone date it?

    ...looks like there's a leading "1" digit, and some other last digit to provide a 15k range serial number. That 15k range would be appropriate for that style of logo stamp.

    Arm and hammer can someone date it?

    I don't have exact years, Postman's dates jump from 1901 to 1912. I have serial number ranges for each logo style that I've compiled.

    Arm and hammer can someone date it?

    There are some missing digits in the photo, or worn away digits in the serial number. That logo stamp is not from the first year of production. That is the third style of logo stamp A&H used.

    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.
  17. 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.

    Trenton year ID?

    could you post pics of the side logo stamp and also of the serial number?

    Help Anvil Identification

    ACME anvil made by Trenton (Columbus Forge & Iron Co.). 1916 ballpark according to AIA.
  21. 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.
  23. 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.

    arm & hammer #612

    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.
