Welcome to the forum.

If you edit your profile to show your location, you may be surprised how many of the gang are near you and a lot of answers are location dependent. As far as when your Hay Budden was made someone with a copy of Anvils in America will be able to tell you approximately when she was made. Hay Budden started using an A prefix to the serial number around 1918 so yours was made after that date.

It's a good looking usable anvil just as it sits, however many anvils have been ruined by welding and grinding on the faces. I hope seriously that hasn't happened to your excellent anvil.

How is the ring and rebound on it?

Might want to read through this thread,
