Anvil ID help, thanks in advance

Recommended Posts

Picked this up recently, it's heavy, it rings like a bell and has some character marks along the edges.. and it's the first 200+ pound anvil I've seen much less had the chance to acquire, so I'm curious about it's pedigree.  It seems to have lines/shape like my smaller Peter Wright and what could be a pretty badly obliterated circular mark just above the weight marks that seem PWish... but I'm not sure.  Thanks in advance if anyone can provide some more info based on the photos below.

The only legible markings I found were the 3 - digit hundredweight markings, 2-0-24 (248 pounds).  I tried doing a wax paper/crayon rubbing but didn't come up with anything more than the numeric digits.. seems like someone took a chisel to the sides pretty aggressively.
