Anvil ID Help

Recommended Posts

HI All, just getting into the hobby. Started with a piece of railway track but came across this anvil and figured it was better than the track.

Seems the previous owner ground off the maker markings for some reason. Maybe he bought it and thought the previous owner stamped his name in it??

Only other markings are 1    3    7 which I assum is the weight in hundreds? and a "V" on the foot under the horn.

Any ideas? It came from a community that traded heavily with England back in the day.

mousehole generally put large punch marks tween the numbers. no sign of that here.

Agreed. MH anvils also tend to have a ridge running down the underside of the horn, and I'm not seeing that here (although it's hard to tell from these photos).
