Value depends a lot on Location; how much are cross country skis worth in central Australia?

As it's a small anvil in good looking condition it may very well be worth rather silly amounts of money to a collector.  Finding such can be an issue though.

Original use would be for light duty smithing.

I have a Kohlswa even smaller than that one and find a lot of use for it. Great for cutting small stuff, you can put it on top of the bench and sit next to it

 Did not pay much for it though ... some $150 from memory. 

When you say you found it do you mean you bought it already? How much did you pay for it?
