Good morning njanvilman
I'll attach a few more pictures. The weight stamp looks like 250 in the pictures but is clearly 260 in person. The date is a little harder to read but appears to be 1909. Would this have been a specialty weight made or did they make several in this size? Also I haven't seen many saw tuners of this size sell and would be interested to hear what you think the value is. Would $5 # be a good starting point. Please keep in mind I am a dealer and at some point this will be for sale, but the $ isn't all it is for me. I am very passionate about these pieces and love the history.
Also is it necessary to clean it, or can I leave that for the next person if they wish? In antiques I never like to alter the state in which I found the piece. But I also wouldn't want to be neglecting the anvil either.
Thanks for the knowledge!
