Hi, I bought a anvil here in Vietnam, it appears to be a vulcan with characteristic chipping seen in other vulcans, so probably it's real, I'm wondering if it's pre or from the Vietnam war era. See the pictures an comment. I paid about 80 dollars. I'm planing in taking it to my country when I finish my Assignment here in several years time.
I don't do much forging. Any comment a bout possible history of this piece?

My guess, being that while in Uncle Sugar's Big Green Machine, I got to see a few anvils that were Army procured your anvil was left there when the US pulled out, or was part of a shop set of tools that was issued to the South Vietnamese Army. Most of the old welding/ machinist shop sets the US Army used had a very similar anvil. (at least from the 80s-90s- those sets really didn't change much from the Viet Nam era until the late 90's)
