I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I just got my first "real" anvil I picked it up today to replace the dinky 55 pounder I started with

Talking to the elderly lady I bought it from it came to Indian territory with her father on a covered wagon when he was about 2 or 2 and a half. She is in her 80s. It was the anvil for the blacksmith shop in my hometown when it was first founded and her father was the blacksmith or her grandfather.

Any help identifying would be great

It's a trenton and the markings look to be 

W210 SN78912

Or SN785912

Welcome to the forum Lorne, if you go to your profile and edit it to show your location, you may be surprised how many of the gang are close to you and a lot of answers are location dependent.

You have a very nice Trenton, any idea on the weight? She is ready to go to work and hot steel will have her face shining in short order. I'm sure you have already heard about absolutely no grinding on the face, which would ruin it.
