Both lakeside makers are *good* anvil brands! Take a wire brush and clean the face a bit and do the ball bearing test.  The ball bearing test will show if there was any post production issues like a structure fire.  Also with nothing on the face or in the hardy hole tap the face with a hammer---it should ring.  If it doesn't then there is hidden damage.

So finally got some time to clean up my anvil. Turns out it's a 70# Lakeside anvil. These pictures are after 1 run through with  a wire wheel, then some rust removed followed by a rinse and then a thin coating of WD40 Specialist
