  1. I've scoured the posts on here and have concluded that I am nowhere near educated enough in the ways of anvils to identify this piece. That being said, this is a piece that I'm thinking about purchasing and wanted to get some feedback on its possible origin. As far as I can tell, there is no maker's mark to speak of. I was able to vaguely see a possible weight (1-6-8) and a serial number (?) on the front of the base. The underside appears to be of Trenton characteristics, and then I read that there were many that adopted this oval recess. Anyway, any available feedback would be greatly appreciated. I believe the owner is asking too much, but I've been wrong numerous times thus far. Have a look!
  2. I am so I am so new to blacksmithing that I'm beginning now, like right now! I would like to know if anyone can help me by identifying this anvil for me please I can only tell you that when I put my hands on it it feels rich with history I just don't know what it is , the second picture is the actual color in the first I adjusted the contrast and sharpness to try to bring out the logo I appreciate anything someone can tell me thank you
  3. Has anyone seen an anvil with this tag before?
  4. Any of you out there that have any tips for spotting a Soderfors in a crowd without any obvious marks? The feet appear to be similar to Peter wright with the little step on them; correct? Anything else that screams Soderfors that I should be looking for?
  5. Im hoping somone will be able to help identify this anvil. It weighs around 85 pounds and is only marked with a letter M on the side. No other markings on it at all. Any info would be appreciated.
  6. Hi I've had this anvil for about 4 months, and I would like to know a little bit more about it. The Face is 4 1/2 inches wide, the horn is about 8 inches long, and its about 10 inches high. It Has three handling holes, two in the sides and one in the bottom. No grinding has been done and none shall be done! I also got a good deal on it less than 3 dollars a pound. It also has a very hard face.
  7. Hey guys, I recently got my hands on an anvil and I'm trying to identify it. It's London pattern with a Hardy, but no pritchell or step. Also it has a hole in the base as well as handling holes at the front and the back. Only markings that I could find on it were 2 0 1 (which makes sense as it's 2 hundredweight) and also what I believe says Bath. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any reference to Bath-made anvils. I'll post some pictures soon. Thanks
  8. Hi to everyone in this forum! I have inherited an anvil from my grandfather, I tried to look for a serial number but the side where its supposed to be is pretty scratched up. I'm sure it's a Hay-Budden. regarding weight i think its around 25 to 30lbs... if anyone has any info please do tell, I wish to know what year it was made. Here are some images for reference.
  9. I'm trying to understand what type of anvil I have. The weight is about 244lbs. The base of the anvil is about 11.5" x 12". You can see the measurements in the pictures. striking face - 19" length, 4.75" width overall length- 30.5" height - 12" the only identifying mark I could find was a W on the bottom left foot under the horn is this a forged or cast iron? What kind of iron is it? What type of price tag would it have (not looking to sell, but would like to know what I have)?
  10. Hi, all. I started blacksmithing just over a year ago using a railroad track and a homemade anvil. Just picked up my first real anvil on Friday and was hoping that someone could identify it for me. It's 80lb and the mark looks like an arm and hammer but not exactly the same as an Arm & Hammer trademark. I bought the anvil and the 68lb railroad track for $80 so I'm pretty sure I got a great deal no matter what brand it is. Thanks for the help
  11. I've been looking but it's time to just ask... I'm considering an apparently pretty good deal on a Peter Wright off of craigslist. Will try to post pics but we'll see. The question is: On the front left foot there looks to be an 'H' stamped in. Is this the stamp of the builder? What else could it be. The rest of it seems pretty clear... 108lb, 1850-1890ish, Peter Wright Patent (stacked). But what is the H? Despite the edges being a bit rough, the face looks nicer than my Trentons! $183 ain't to bad!
  12. Found this on the 'ol craigslist and am wondering if it might be worth anything? It does not have a Hardy or pritchell hole and the only markings are "a D H stamped on front". Looking for my first anvil and some advise on this one. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!
