Saved another colonial anvil today

Recommended Posts

I found this late colonial anvil today for sale for $110 cash. It did not look like it was in good condition but after oiling and cleaning, it does not look half bad. The weight marks are 2-27 which translates to 83 lbs, but it actually only weighs 80.4 lbs. I had to drive 30 miles to get it. Rebound is 80% and rings loudly. The last image is the picture from craigslist, disgusting!

Enjoy photos!

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and that anvil to me is a piece of art sitting there! I am a sucker for those old anvils with the gentle curves and thick waist. You did well!!! I have yet to run across an anvil this old yet but when I do I will buy it up, and probably put it on a shelf and talk to it lol
