I Forge Iron

any guesses as to this things identity?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I found an anvil for sale not too far from where i am and I'm hoping you all can help my figure out what this fella is. The only info the seller has up is that it's 160# and made in the US. No idea if that's at all accurate. I've never seen a(for lack of a better word) growth like that on the horn before. I'm going to head out to give it a look this saturday. 


Hope you guys can help.

You use the clip in making horse shoes.  Looks nice, I'd buy it.  Once it is yours, then with some cleaning we can figure out what it is.  I wouldn't NOT buy it based off if I don't know if it is a Trenton or Hay Budden.  That would be like not buying a car because you don't know if the color of it is Black, or Deep Black!

 I believe that this is a definate twin of my own 1908 Hay Budden . If you compare photos,they seem to be just about identical. The top arangement (two pritchel holes,hardy hole) is also matching. Buy it ! It's a wonderful anvil,you won't regret it . Also,check for a serial number on the base ,directly under the horn.

            Cheers !

I see the diamond and vote Trenton too---a picture of the bottom will seal the deal though.


Both T and H-B are top notch anvils and the clip does not interfere with non-farrier work and may be a positive option depending on what you plan to do.


If the price is not excessive BUY IT NOW!   (A good priced anvil is often on the market only for a couple of hours before being sold!)
