Recommended Posts

I have a Soderfors anvil that bellonged my wife granfather. I wold like to know its age.
I found in the anvil the words SODENFORS DANNEMORA SWEDEN 60.5KGs and signs that may be:
9 ( 64 ) 9 in one side and 60 in other side.
Cold anyone help me?

Country of Origin marking was a requirement that came in around 1910 IIRC in the the USA so if it was made for the US market that would be an "earliest date".

While it's fun to know I have found little difference in how an anvil "works" from being 50 years old or 150 years old!
