I believe I have that anvil's little brother; looks almost exactly the same but it's 55lb and has a 5/8 inch hardy hole and 1/2 inch pritchel hole but neither has a clear, straight line through. Top plate seems to be one piece and as I recall 3/4 inch or thicker. Both holes appear to be punched so I'd agree with Thomas that it's early-to-mid 19th century. I'll try and get some pics when I get my camera working again.
