Hi All, New to this site, I just purchased my first anvil and I am very excited. I wanted to get your thoughts on the condition and whether or not to clean it up as it is so old. Here are a few pictures. One thing is that on the bottom it says May 13, 1884/1894 but the back says 1900 can someone clear that up for me? In addition I think I got a really good deal on it but I dont know the going rate for these types of things. For more information I am located in New Hampshire. Thanks, Dally
I am not a blacksmith, but I have a Trenton anvil that came from my Grandfather's farm. Below the Trenton logo it says 91, which I assume is the weight. The serial number is A6692, and located to the far edge left of the number is an "S". Is there a resource that would tell me the approximate age?
Hello, I'm new to this site.But you were where everyone pointed to for reliable info. I was lucky enough to pick up a 100 lb. Hay Budden in great shape. I was trying to get help dating it. NOT for retail sale.I will die with this in my shop. A29364 is the serial number as best as i can read. the 9 and 3 are iffy.But it looks like 5 numbers.From what i can find it's early 1890's....? I really am interested in the history behind this anvil.Any help would be great for this noob. Thank you. Ben T.
