Trenton anvil Looking for mfg date

Recommended Posts

I just bought anew old Trenton anvil. Stamped on side with Trenton USA and a medallion  that says solid wrought. On foot is stamped  Z152   A26865. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Another request for Trenton dating if someone has the Postman book.

My nephew just got a Trenton serial number 217515 on the right side of the foot.  On the left is maybe a 75, maybe Z5.

Thanks.

The left side of Trentons are the weight, so my Trenton says A151 so that means it is 151 pounds. As for MFG date I don't know, I tried running some searches but came up empty.

 Hello, 

Rod looks like A26865 is a 1896 vintage, from A.I.A.

Then the nephews 217515 is from 1947 or 1948.

NNF.

phabib, please post a closeup picture of the side logo and serial number if you could, I'd like to add it to the logo database.  Trenton had many variations of their logo stamp over the years.  I'm trying to figure out serial number ranges that went with each logo stamp style.  Each sample helps!

Thank you for the dating information.  His anvil looks like it came to him via a time machine.  Its either hardly been used or expertly repaired.  I'll get a picture of the logo and numbers when I next see my nephew.

  Jeremiah, 

Oh thats right, Jeremiah was a bull frog.

Black Frog,

Someone posted a photo of a Arm & Hammer and serial number,  last night. It was a post, asking for help dating. (Let the posts fly, I said help dating)

  N.N.F.
