My "new to me" anvil

Hay Budden 1913

I'm pretty sure I paid too much for it, but I just fell in love. I've been looking for an anvil for a couple years now. (seriously about 3 months)   I just got sick of using an old rail road splice plate.  I paid 775 for the anvil. And I got a post vice that is in great condition for 75.

The original image size for EACH photo was 3.5 x 6 FEET (1 meter x 2 meters) and 45 megs. Images were reduced in size and inserted into directly into the post.

I live in La Plata, MD.  about an hour south of DC.  I got the anvil however in small town in central VA.  I drove 3 hours to get it. Gordonsville, VA to be exact.

Can't help with the price of anvils in your area. In mine it would be a little high but not out of the question seeing it's condition. I can say the post vise was a bargain, around here they go for north of $200 if you can find one.

Not sure how heavy it is but looks to be in great shape, post vise sounds like a great deal. Took me a while to find my first anvil too.

I lived in Waldorf until 2006 and used to hit golf balls at the range in La Plata on 301 :-)  Welcome, and nice find on the anvil.  Any idea what it weighs?
