kjbarth Posted August 5, 2018 Share Posted August 5, 2018 I'm considering purchasing 1 of 2 different Fisher anvils, and want to see if anyone knows of any manufacturing differences or quality differences based on when the anvils were made. One is an anvil made, I think, in 1847 that has a very small Fisher Norris Cast Steel stamping and another stamping of Patent Oct 16th 1847. The anvil is in good shape and I am somewhat familiar with this anvil so there is some sentimental value which I really shouldn't take into account for a tool. Made in Newport ME before Fisher moved down to Trenton NJ. The other anvil is made in 1919, stamped Fisher, with the eagle raised seal and is a bit bigger. Similar price point so cost is not really a factor. Both are in good shape and I think I would be very happy with either. Just want to know if anyone knows of any differences in quality or manufacturing based on when these 2 anvils were made. Thank you, Ken.
