Can someone tell me the date of my Trenton anvil? It's serial number is A11076. It has the diamond with Trenton in it but also has a Buel Patent mark with what looks like "Wroght Iron Guaranteed USA" written around the words Buel Patent. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hey guys, I'm new here and just starting to to learn about forging, I just got my first anvil, which I've had my eyes on way before I even knew what forging was. It was my great grandfathers and has sat in my parents barn untouched for all of my life. So after looking around on here and other google searches I was able to wire brush the side and see Trenton logo on the side, but it's upside down, does anyone know if that was common? The left foot says z157 which I'm guessing is the weight, I also put it on a scale to confirm that. The right foot is a little harder to read but looks like it says a49437. The second 4 is almost non existent so that is basically a guess it could be another number, don't know if that will affect the date, but could someone please let me know what year this is? I've attached a pic Incase someone else can make out the number better than I can. Thanks for any help
