Good afternoon, dear participants of the group. I am writing to you from Belarus, I do not know the language, I am writing through a translator, but I am counting on your help. A few days ago, I came across a large and heavy anvil, the approximate weight of which is more than 250 kg (more than 550 Lb). I can't weigh it for sure, because I don't have such large scales. Dimensions of the anvil: Face width-18 cm (7.09"); Length-101 cm (39.76"), (including a slightly chipped horn); Height-36 cm (14.17″); The size of the square openings 40 mm (1.57″); The size of the round hole is 27 mm (1.06"). The anvil also has square holes under the horn at the front and on the opposite side at the back, most likely for transportation. There is the same square hole at the bottom of the sole. On one side of the anvil, the number 5 and 8 are very clearly distinguishable, which are located on the left and right respectively. In the middle there is something resembling the number 7 inverted to the right (it is less visible). On the second side of the anvil there is a text that has been preserved very poorly, and in which only some letters can be read. Here's what I was able to recognize. Also on the sole of the anvil under the horn in the center there is a brand, presumably resembling the English letter G. The anvil will be used for its intended purpose, but I have a huge interest in finding out what this model is and what it is called, in what year it was released, what factory, how much it weighs, I am interested in the full text that is written on it, in General, any information that relates to it. I am writing to you because I hope that perhaps someone else has the same one, and you can tell me something.
New 700 lb Fisher anvil added to the Fisher & Norris Factory Museum. This anvil is on loan from a friend who saved it from being scrapped. With the stand, total weight is 840 lb. The anvil was cast sometime in the 1920's. The final digit was stamped in to indicate it was sold in 1926. This was for the one year warranty that Fisher offered on its anvils. This is the second FISHER anvil I have that has this kind of dating with a stamped final digit. Here is the original Fisher pattern that made the mold for this anvil. It is always interesting to put the pattern and a finished anvil back together after 90 years.All of the seams and irregularities match exactly from the pattern to the anvil.
