  1. Sorry, I forgot to mention that! I'm in East Texas. As for how much I paid, it was covered in paint and at a farm auction. I paid $600 for it then.
  2. Hey, so I posted a few years back asking about an anvil that I got at an auction. Since then I've decided to move overseas and won't be taking it with me, so I'm hoping to sell it. First I need a decent ballpark of what it's worth though, which is where I'd love some help if possible. It's a J.E. Pilcher Solid Wrought Blackjack brand, 311 marked (pretty sure that's 311 lbs since it's USA made) and the serial of 47043 puts it at between 1898 and 1899 for being made. I have the original pictures from the first post, and other than a little discoloration on top it's still in the same condition.
  3. ​It's difficult to tell, since it's welded to the stand. I felt under there and it feels fairly even, so I doubt there's much of a depression if there is one.
  4. I just found an anvil covered in paint at an auction and spent the last week trying to clean it up. Once I had gotten most of the paint off I noticed very shallow letters on the front face, which appear to say: PILCHER BLACKJACK WROUGHT It also is marked 311 under that, which I'm assuming is the weight in pounds since it's an American anvil. It's welded to the stand right over the first digit of the serial number unfortunately, but I've cleaned it up enough to see the rest. I'm thinking that the number behind the bracket is very narrow, possibly a one, or it could have just been worn down over the years. The other numbers are 7013. There are also a pair of twos on either side of the handling hole under the horn. Really I'm just interested in knowing more about this anvil, especially since it's my first one. Any information at all would be helpful. I apologize for the pictures. I know they're hard to make out, but they were the best I took out of about 30 in different lighting.
