So I finally picked up my first 'real' anvil! Might have paid a bit much at 450 for it but been striking out for a good while and saving for that time too. Figured I could work with a little chipping and sway because it has decent rebound and ring (along with being a Trenton!). Could anybody help me with a general date? The only markings are on the side; the Trenton logo below the face, a faded solid wrought below that and a clear 147 below that. There could be a 1 on the other side. There is nothing at least that I could tell on the feet. I hit most of the surfaces with a wire wheel then waxed it but nothing showed up. Would this be an 'early' Trenton? Would love any other info if you're willing. I will post up some pics as well as the evolution of my anvils. It's comical in the addictive sense. Oh my first anvil is not pictured; think of 3/4 in angle iron that's 6 in long on a railroad tie and there you go. Thanks and happy hammering!
