  1. A few days ago, I posted pictures of my anvil and the helpful people on this forum helped me identify it. It is a 500 lb. Fisher anvil made for a Blacker powerhammer. The date on the front is 1930 I believe. Given that I live in Northeastern Pennsylvania ( just under NY border), I was wondering if someone could tell me what the anvil is worth. Thanks in advance.
  2. I just measured the hardy holes, and they are 1.5”. I can’t believe it actually weighs that much! I watched the video @Dylan Sawicki attached also. Very cool. Kind of wish I had the Blacker powerhammer to go with it. Thanks for all your responses
  3. Thanks for the quick response. I just put my location in. I live in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
  4. I have had this anvil in my family for a long time. The story is that it came from a blacksmith’s shop from a local railroad company. I know little about anvils, so I was wondering if someone could tell me more about it. I took some pictures of it. The only markings on it that I know of are some kind of bird logo (maybe an eagle?) on the side, and it has what I believe to be “1930” on the front. I’m guessing that’s the year it may have been made. This thing is pretty big and ridiculously heavy. Unfortunately, I don’t know what it weighs. All I know is that I can only lift up and tip one end at a time. I only weigh 150 pounds myself, and I nearly broke my back getting it onto the dolly it’s on in the pictures. I did also take some measurements: Overall Length (from the tip of the horn to the heel): 32 and 3/16” Length of face: 22 and 1/8” Width of face: 6” Height (from base): 15”
