I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Hey folks just wanted to show y'all my local auction find. I paid 105 dollars for it. I kinda took a gamble on it because I didnt know if it was what I thought it was because it had like a inch of paint on it. I wire wheeled the paint off and sure enough I got me a nice little peter wright.
Weight marks show it to be a 72 pounder. I think it will make a great little travel anvil. Its in pretty good shape too. Does anyone know how to date these anvils somewhat, just curious as to how old this thing might be.

I'm certainly no expert on this but I think that anvil would have been made between 1885-1910. It has similar markings as mine does and that is the age I found mine to be. Solid wrought in a circle puts it after 1885, and not having ENGLAND stamped into it puts it before 1910.
Hope that helps.
Nice find by the way.
