I Forge Iron

Cleaned most of the paint off the Alsop

It definitely says "Sheffield" and "Alsop" with weight marks of "1" "X" "25" . Someone obviously did grind on the top some, but it is in great shape, nice edges, rings like a bell with a great rebound. Hard to imagine its around 220 years old!

The two handling holes in the back are strange. What makes you believe that someone ground the top? It does have some sway I see that

There's only one handling hole in back. The other hole's the hardie hole coming down.

That is a lovely anvil. I wish I knew the life my 1913 Fisher lived before I got it. If only your anvil could speak!
