Anvil ballpark date

Recommended Posts

   Barn find,  just picked up a Hay Budden. I was looking for the serial number, no luck. Next I took the wire brush to the logo. It's an American. I remember that HB made anvils under a lot of different names. 

   Any guess what years HB made anvils with the American logo?

American was in business from about 1888-1912, they were an independent company not related to Hay-Budden. Hay-Budden did stamp many hardware company names on anvils for customers but didn't make any stamped American.
