Hey all so I just bought my first I hope anvil but it looks like it is an unfinished casting as I can see a parting line all the way around and the face is peaked as well as seeing casting flash in the hardy hole I see no markings on it at all but then again it has a thin layer of paint and some somewhat significant pitting or could be something else. Previous owner thought it might have been a blemished cast or possibly a bad cast that caused the pitting the parting line goes all the way around the anvil and is the length of the face. Haven't weighed it yet but the previous owner said between 200-250lbs. Seems to ring OK but have yet to hit it with a hammer. You guys have any ideas? Will try to post pics tomorrow. Here's to hoping I didn't buy scrap.
