I don't think I've seen a Fisher with handling holes before. I'll be curious what Josh's take on this is.

Justin, does your 1850s Fisher pre eagle have the holes in the waist? I can't tell from your pict.

It a FISHER.  Not a colonial.  Probably from early 1860's.  The "handling holes" were pivot points for the mounting the anvil to a fixture for grinding the conical horn.  I believe that AIA has some diagrams of this grinder.

Well used obviously, with the obvious missing parts.

The 8 indicated that it started its life as approx 80 lb.
