I Forge Iron

Hay budden anvil

Recommended Posts

If your anvil serial number is correct with the 8 as the first digit, the anvil was made in 1903.  If the first digit is a 3, then the anvil was forged in 1898.

The 3 under the horn is thought to be an inspectors mark.

The numbers under the name should be the weight in lbs.  

All HB anvils were made in Brooklyn, NY between about 1892 and 1926.
