anyone tell me what kind of anvil this is? I'm thinking its an hay-budden, but not sure. It belonged to my great-grandfather. he used it from 1915 to 1946.
Any ideas where to go find the info or opinions would be appreciated! There are a few photos in the gallery.

It appears to be a Hay Budden, looks like the 2 I have. They did not always mark their anvils on the side from what I have been told. But you can look under the tail up close to the waist and there will be the # '4' stamped into the anvil. They did this on most of their unmarked anvils. Looks like an excellent anvil. Use it well, I'm sure your great grndfather would be proud to see you using it.
