  1. Thanks for all of the replies. Not all that concerned with the value as much as quality of anvil. Gave around $3.60 a pound and for my neck of the woods is a fair price compared to what smaller anvils are bringing here in SW missouri. Big anvils like this are hard to come by here. Seller claims 95+% rebound and if that proves close to true I will be satisfied.
  2. 469 is in pounds. I am in the Midwest united States. Gave considerably north of $1000 usd.
  3. LOL. Yes really didn't think I would get it. Talked to the guy last week but we couldn't come together on price. Long story short we finally did earlier this evening. Didn't steal it but got what I beleive was a fair deal. Just looking for any info as to what I bought. Hopefully a good anvil at a fair price?
  4. Just bought this anvil. Should be here around the end of the week. Advertised as north german 469# forged anvil. Any clue as to the maker and age. Good anvil? Any information appreciated.
  5. Thanks for the tip. I'll give that a try next time I fire it up.
  6. Been burning anthracite coal from tractor supply. Got plenty hot but was a little hard to lite.
  7. Here is my first attempt. Still not finished, have to put a lip around outer edge of table. Firepot made from 3/4" plate thanks to a friend with a lot of steel and a plasma cutter. Had I known more the design would have been different. Good start until I know more what my needs are.
  8. Same here. Offered $600 but no go. I beleive it's in a flea market between eureka and Berryville. I have only talked to the guy over text and phone. Also finally got the correct weight maybe. The guy at the auction said it was 225 then the owner said 230, now says it's 215lbs? Either way I'm still on the hunt.
  9. Really don't know where it's at exactly. Got the number for the guy that knows the guy from a guy at an auction. The owner sent the pic to him and he forwarded it to me. 900 was the price I got from him.
  10. This may be the same anvil. I don't own it but it is for sale in nw ar but like you to rich for my blood.
  11. Sorry the weight is 230#.
  12. Sorry, I am in SW missouri.
  13. I beleive that is the logo side. If you zoom in it is faintly visible. I have no other photos and there are no other visible markings on the anvil. Just thought I would take a shot that it could be identified.
  14. Found this anvil at a local flea market. Am new to blacksmithing and have read some trenton's were usa made and some were German made. Can anyone tell me the age and country of manufacture of this anvil. Sorry have no other pictures. Also a good starting point on value would be appreciated. Thanks to all.
