Robert H. Posted March 3, 2011 Share Posted March 3, 2011 Hey Guys, I'm new to this forum (and smithing in general). I have searched high and low trying to find makers marks for anvils, with no results other than to buy a book on anvils (I'm not that involved yet). I have an anvil that I bought at an auction several years ago. It's in pretty rough shape IMO, but I have it, so might as well use it for more than straightening bent objects. As far as ID goes, all I can see on the side, is what looks like a cresent moon. All the other writting (which there is quite a bit) is not clear enough to read. The only other marking is the number 8 cast into the base, near the foot on the horn end. If needed, I will try to get a pic of the markings, but I doubt they will show well in a pic. The anvil is probably around 75 lbs or so (thats a guess). If any of the anvil experts out there have a clue as to who made this one, I'd appreciate hearing from them. Thanks, Bob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
