I just bought my father a "new" anvil for his birthday . I was wondering if anyone here could help me determine its age. From what I've read, I assume it's a Fisher because of the eagle emblem cast onto its right side. It has "225" cast onto one of it's front feet. I assume that is it's advertised weight. I weighed it at 230 pounds. "h65" is cast onto the back of it above the feet. There are no other numbers, letters, or symbols appearing on it. It does have mounting lugs with holes in them front and rear. Any info would be much appreciated . Thanks in advance . Doug.
I recently picked up this little beauty. From reading the forums extensively, I believe she's a Fisher Norris Eagle from around 1870. Other than the raised eagle emblem on the side, I've found no other markings. She is 105 lbs, face is pretty flat other than the obvious wear on the corners, and seems solid. Bottom surface is also flat. I have yet to put the metal to her, but the weather is improving and hopefully we'll get to know each other better soon. (I better stop, this is starting to sound creepy.) I know we have some very informed members and am hoping someone can confirm my beliefs and possibly answer another question. Is the groove on the underside of the tip of the horn a defect or a design feature? I can swear I've seen something similar before but have no idea what it would be suited for. Any other info you feel inclined to share would be appreciated as well. John
