I bought this anvil for around $400 from a guy working in a hospital. They cleared out the old machine and workshop, and decided to sell this anvil. There weren’t many others for a price as good as he offered, so I ended up making the purchase. However, I can’t seem to figure out what the make of this anvil is. I originally thought it was a Trenton, but now I’m leaning more towards it being a cast steel Swedish, but I could be wrong there too. I have only been blacksmithing more seriously for about half a year, and I need an expert’s opinion. The anvil is 135lbs, and was acquired by the hospital in the early 1950’s.
I want to buy an anvil, i found this in a used tool market, no visible marks, the waist looks a little weird, like it has been grinded But i dont know if this is good quality, can you, distinguised and experienced guys identify it and give an estimate of how much to pay? many thanks
