  1. This anvil has a very clear Peter Wright marking. In the meantime I looked up S.D. Kimbark and found their 1876 catalog, S.D. Kimbark's Illustrated Catalogue. This Peter Wright anvil is shown on page 266 at a price of 16 cents per pound (about $24.60). I am from the same corner of the country as you are. Thank you so much for your help.
  2. Thank you so much for the info. That's interesting. I don't have a picture of it handy but your question makes me think that the stamp was on the rounded part of the anvil so the last and first letters were missing. But what was " Mad Fo"? And who is S.D. Kimbark? S.D. Kimbark Mad Fo Chicago Chicago makes sense because it belonged to my great-grandfather and he lived in northern Illinois.
  3. I have a Wright anvil, about 150#, from about 1900. There are incised letters on it in this configuration that say: "D. Kim MAD FO CA" I believe it was hammered in with a stamp but on a slight curve of the body of the anvil so not all the letters are there. I think it might be "Made For Ca.....(?)" Does anyone know what this means. I am very curious about this. Thank you.
