Welcome aboard...

Hard to tell with just those 2 pictures. It looks like Brooklyn NY on the side to me. If so I'd say a Hay Budden. Some more pictures, full view both sides and a picture of the underside of the base may help. Also knowing where in the world you are located, hence the suggestion to edit your profile to show location in this thread. READ THIS FIRST

Dust some baby powder or flour on to the anvil and gently brush away some of it leaving the lettering exposed. Another way to bring out the information is to put a thin piece of paper over the lettering and rum it with a pencil.

A strong light aimed from a low angle will sometimes cast shadows into the low spots.
