    Mystery Anvil

    I was going to do like the one fella said and leave only the blue paint but since we can't get a consensus i may have to wire wheel the stamp area soon..did hay button anvils have a circular stamp word "wrought"? and the big H's on the front base is still confusing?

    looking online I'm now guessing it may be a peter wright because of the "wraught" circle around the middle weight "0" ?? did other makers use this circle stamp also? but that doesn't explain the big H on the under horn foot? age ideas?

    Mr powers..i dont have much platinum left so it will be a thin plate! Jme1149 the lead does not scare me, how do you think i got this way?! Now seriously..a few pictures to pass on for help The one is of the front base under the horn. Just a big "h" one on each side The bottom picture The overall anvil with a diet pepsi for scale Lastly the one which may tell all. It has 4 0 0 across the middle all spaced a few inches. Around the middle "0" and below it i can make out "ought" i assume its wrought and its in a circle around the middle 0. I think the picture shows it. Thanks for all the help fellas. Here are the pictures

    So I assume its a wire wheel then some boiled linseed oil? Best option" Wanna do it tomorrow just to see any markings.

    UPDATE its mine! went to look at it and pictures did it no justice! it was way bigger than i expected, and in way way better shape than expected! i did the rebound and ring tests and all good. no signs of any face repair ever. great anvil overall. the guy guessed it was about a hundred years old and he got it from a cprail shop that closed years ago. the only mark i see so far is a big H on the base below the horn.. when i get it home i will clean the paint off it. is a wire wheel best or should i try paint remover first or?

    Sorry for needing all the help and sounding like an anvil rookie, but its what i am! Im going to look at it tomorrow. I have a ball bearing and hammer to check rebound and sound. If those both seem good then what should i look for on the face to tell if its been tampered with other than say grinder marks?

    not sure of weight ,or how to find out until after i buy it. i guess if i can't budge it ,its over 300lbs. if i xxxx myself its more! i will get a ball bearing before going to see it and try it out. thats good old canadian $ , so a bit over 600 usa dollars

    Another Picture of the top, How does it look? That's the only 2 I have of it. $800.00 is the asking price, Should I grab it?
