  1. So I have this anvil, and I can't figure out the brand. I know these aren't the best pictures as it was getting dark out. The closeup of what I'm guessing is a logo of some sort is the only marking that is cast in the anvil. No serial number, no company name, nothing. Has anyone seen any markings like this one before?
  2. Title said it all, just lookign to learn something before I start using it. Bought off a farmer who used to do some forgework but then left it to their farrier, you can see on the face the distinct imprints in places from the shoes. This is in Warwickshire, England if that help the identification, and by my estimates weighs easilly over 100kg. It has been painted black but theres also evidence of blue too. Very new to this so any advice is very welcome The photo with the ruler is just the square face. Including the horn it extended past the ruler.
  3. Hi, picked up a mystery anvil for a song since it was "broken" :D and need help identifying it. English weights on the side, no apparent dots after the numbers. Fairly sharp corners. If it ever had a serial number it's long gone. Handling holes front and back, and one on the bottom only slightly filled with black widow spiders! Actually touched one before I saw them. Thank God they were dead. Weight says 1 1 20, but it only weighs 140, missing 20 lbs for some reason. :D Has a lovely ring when struck and although hard face is a little worn, rebound is around 80 percent. No depression on the bottom. Markings are all stamped in. One clearly says 1816 (date?) There's an anchor, and you can tell there was a name or something above, but all you can read now appears to be an E followed by a P, but frankly they could be an A and an R. Rubbed with flour for the photos. http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37796-ntm1/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37797-ntm2/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37798-ntm3/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37799-ntm4/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37800-ntm5/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37801-ntm6/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37802-ntm7/ On my way to help wife with chickens, but can't wait to get it on a stump and beat some iron. Thanks!!! Nbs.
