Stake anvil ID

Recommended Posts

Most of them I have seen or owned are quite soft; what does the ball bearing test give for the face of it?

That value will affect the value quite a bit; if it's soft it's more of a collector's piece of an adjunct horn/heel for an improvised anvil.  I have seen them in old books being used for barrel making to bend and weld the hoops.  I have not seen any with wear patterns that looked like they had been used for shoeing.
