I recently purchased a Belknap anvil, 110lbs. I was hesitant to buy it because I couldn't find much info on their anvils. Fortunately it has turned out to be a pretty good anvil. I was wondering if anybody had any info on Belknap anvil, especially a date for the anvil's year of manufacturing. I did what research I could and found a 1917 catalog from Belknap but found the markings on my anvil to be different from the catalog and the company's logo in later years. Anyways, I appreciate any info.
I recently inherited my grandfather's Belknap anvil. The serial number is either 87420 or 37420, anyone out there with a copy of AIA that could shed some light on the history? My family is from Louisville and the "knap" is the only identifiable part of the original logo stamp, so I assume it was a licensed A&H from the early 1900's. The edges are still sharp and the striking face is dead flat, I never knew my grandfather so I feel extremely lucky to have this piece of history connecting us.
Hello all: I've been a forum member for awhile, but this is my first post. I recently acquired my first anvil, a Belknap Harwdware and Manufacturing Co. (B.H. & M. Co.) marked anvil made by Columbus Forge and Iron Company. It's in really decent shape overall and it has the serial number 17817 stamped on the front of the foot. Can anyone here help me out a little in figuring out its date of manufacture? I don't have a copy of Postman's book nor do any of the libraries here in town, so I'm hoping that someone with access to a copy might be willing to look and see if there is any date of manufacture information available based on the serial number. Weighs in at exactly 90 lbs. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Since this thread is worthless without pics, here are a couple: Serial number on front of foot:
