That's an odd one. It looks cast, but has the feet of a Mousehole. Makes me wonder if it's a one-off using a Mousehole as the pattern, but then the horn is bigger than one of those. Does it ring?

70 lb. Fisher/Norris anvil? A photo showing the full, side profile would help. Look for lettering under the horn on the front of the base. Foot. Or whatever you call it! Should read Fisher, if present.

What are the hardy an pritchel holes plugged with? I've never use a pritchel hole for forging blades but the hardy hole is nice for holding tooling. I'd unplug at least that.
