So I was thinking this is a William Foster,  but that really looks like a WT so... any ideas?

Overall she's pretty good, nice even ring despite the old weld job on the heel (incidentally, no sign of weld or crack on the underside. .. so perhaps it never completely separated?). It's cool that you can see one of the wrought pieces that was misaligned when it was forge welded together. Overall, a very cool find.

Thanks.  All the photos i found were more complete with the name stamped.  the initials threw me off.

I really like the smaller horn on this guy.  I find that for what i do,  the typical American swollen horn is just wasted weight.  I think this is going to replace my 178+# Arm&Hammer.

The crown suggests the date of a royal warrant or similar, rather than the date of manufacture.
