I Forge Iron

I N stamped on a M&H Armitage Mousehole

Recommended Posts

  Probably a 1830-1875 M&H Armitage  MouseHole weighing  2.1.2 . Nearly ruptured myself picking it up from the trunk of my kid's Mustang, thought it was a 100lb'er. The trunk lift over height kept rising as the suspension unloaded while the anvil was raised.  

    There is a   I N  stamped between the feet , under the horn. Sorry I did not have the dirt brushed off prior to taking the images, not knowing they were there. Any idea what it could indicate. There is some Roman number reference to either 1 or 1000 and 90 ?

The "N" is there as a warning, it's what you're going to say if you lift it. "NNNNNNNNN!"

Beautiful score, dust and surface rust aren't a thing, she's beautiful as she sits. Let us know how you like working on her.
