Calling any and all anvil pros. Another anvil I.D.

All,

 

This is a SAMSON.  You can typically tell a SAMSON by the position of the pritchel hole being behind the hardy hole instead of offset like 99% of anvils.

I'm looking at pics, and it is indeed a Samson! They're even welded at the waist and everything. Apparently these are pretty rare? I'm reading there are only two others known in existence? Does anybody have any other info?

I've researched this so far.

"If you see what looks to be a relief of a Badger within an oval, it would be a Badger (American Skein and Foundry Co. of Racine, WI). If for sale snatch it up at almost any reasonable price as this would be a very, very rare anvil. The other American anvil considered to be rare is the Samson. After the manufacturing of Trentons moved to Cleveland, OH, one of the former owners continued to make anvils in Trenton, NJ calling them Samsons."

If you want to sell it, post it in the Tailgating section, and prepare to send Glenn, the site owner a commission for the sale.

If you had stopped to look at that section, you would have found a member looking for a small anvil. 

And, where on the planet are you, anyway? This is the WORLD Wide Web. (www)

Plus, if you had stopped to read the rules, no one would have to 'splain this to you.
