Recently joned the forum, and figured I would start posting.
Attached are pictures of an ACME Anvil I saw for sale on Craigslist recently.
There are quite a few numbers stamped at the foot of the base, see picture.
It appears to be stamped '120' on the left. Perhaps the right side is a serial number? (A38215 ??).
For ACME anvils, is the 120 indicating pounds, or is that marking the stone weight? (which would make it 168 lbs).
In the picture of the side, is the top plate delaminating, or is the top plate seam just visible?
They are asking $600 - which seems a little steep given the condition.
I was considering offering $350 for it (about $2/lb.), but that is well below the asking price.
Is this anvil worth buying for my first anvil? If so, any thoughts on a fair price?
