  1. Unfortunately for me, I'm stuck at being infatuated with the history for now. The anvil is all I've got so far. Got to get a forge going... soon!
  2. Had a reply on another forum that said... Based on the Anvils In America book (Postman), it looks like you have a pre-1910 anvil for sure as there is no England stamped on there. It would actually seem that yours is 1852 - 1860’ish. Postman notes that one of the minor changes from 1860 - 1885 was the addition of Solid Wrought, so without that yours would seem to pre-date it. I'd love it if that is true.
  3. Hi, I actually posted this over on another thread, 37404-peter-wright, I hope I'm not breaking some sort of etiquette here by re-posting. I beg your forgiveness if I am but I'm not getting much traction on that thread.. I just picked up a PW at an auction last week. It's my first anvil. I have some questions about the markings. It sure looks as if it is stamped with "T T T18". It also doesn't say "solid Wrought" or "England" on it as nearly every PW I've seen. Does that mean it was made in America? Is there anyway of knowing how old it is. Any way of knowing if its the real deal or a
  4. I agree, great information here. Thank you to all of you that posted from your experience.
  5. Thanks, I added my general location. It weighs in at 155 lbs on my bathroom scale. which is pretty darn close to 158 lbs if the markings actually represent "1 1 18"
  6. Hi first post here. I just picked up a PW at an auction yesterday. It's my first anvil. I think I have the same anvil as smithatheart however it sure looks like mine is stamped with "T T T18". Mine also doesn't say "solid Wrought" or "England" on it. Does that mean it was made in America? Is there anyway of knowing how old it is. I cleaned it up with a wire brush and it still rings like a bell with pretty good rebound. I'm pretty darned excited!
