arm & hammer anvil

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I just bought this arm and hammer, anvil. it weights about 80 lbs or so, (haven't got a scale) and was wondering if you could tell me if this weld is factory or a repair, also the face is almost like new,
was wondering if it had been replaced as well.
this thing rings like a bell and the rebound is good for the size.
just curious if you could tell me anything about it...

No need to weigh it they are marked on the front foot,(unless it was made before 1930) pounds and a serial number, the serial numbers can date the anvil as they were sequential. Your anvil being arc welded would be made after 1940- See if you can find the serial number and someone can check Anvils in America for the date. Mr Postman refers to the Arm& Hammer as being, " Undoubtedly one of the finest wrought anvils ever manufactured anywhere."
Here are a couple of pictures of my Arm & Hammer 1913 it has the weight stamped on the waist- you can really see the seam in the body on this anvil, before arc welding was used
