I live in a Chicago home built in the late 1870s. I found the Anvil pictured here tucked away in a nook of my basement the day I moved in, several years ago. I weighed it, and it came in in at 157 lbs. Dimensions are 28” long, 11” tall, and 11” wide at the base. Seems like a "Hay Budden" from other pics I've seen. I can't find any markings, or serial numbers, if there were any, they might be pretty worn by now - any advice on where to look on anvil specifically? Here are the pics - hoping someone can tell me what I've got here? It sure is a cool thing to find an old anvil in your basement :-)
Grandpa & me today went to an Amish Auction in southeast Nebraska & he was a welder for years all the way up until he was about 74 or 75, xxxx xxx xxx! Well anyway he's got a real liking for these anvils & is smart enough to know they are xxxx hard to come by, so today he got a 150lb Trenton for $200. It's in okay shape not great but I don't see any USA stamp omit, the numbers on it read (hard to make out, you may not be able to see it) but it reads on the left "W 150" which we both presume is weight 150lbs. Then on the right it says "A410 18" there is a space between that 0 & the 18 does that last part signify the year is it 1918 you think? And he was wondering if he got a decent deal for what he paid for the price? Is Trenton one of the better anvils or just middle of the road? He said Peter Wright, he thought was one of the best? Was curious if you guys could inform us on manufacture year, some cool facts or anything you got, all is welcome! Thanks for reading & your time!
