Routine anvil identification

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all, long time no see!

I borrowed this anvil from a friend, and he was moving and graciously gave it too me. After some careful (haha) studying, I thought it might be a real arm and hammer anvil. It doesn't look like an English anvil, or a hay budden. It looks like any markings on the side have been smashed out, if there were any, but there are some on the front foot as pictured. Thank you all for the help in advance.
