Any idea as to maker of this anvil?


Recommended Posts

Saw this anvil while looking for one my daughter.  It's marked HGV and 1886.  I believe it is german or Austrian. It has two hardy holes.  Never seen that before. It has three handling holes as well  oh, it weighs 140 pounds.

Well, I'd rather not - for as is often said, the price you pay is what you think it's worth - so the sale price is what I thought it was worth....which may be much more or much less than what you think.  Besides, my wife might read this and find out!  I will say that in order to buy this I sold an extra oxy/acetylene torch set, some old engine parts, some extra tools, and a gas grill to get enough cash.  I only had $200 in what I sold,  but got a bit more than that and used all of it to buy this anvil.

Still looking for a nice 80-100 pound anvil for my daughter that she can take with her when she moves out,  but we'll certainly enjoy using this one until I find her one.
