OK I'm a junkie I admit it

So I stopped at a yard sale and got to talking with the lady. There were saddles and bits and Spurs and a bunch of other stuff. She's a sculptor and I told her my wife and I are blacksmiths. She says she has an anvil somewhere, but doesn't know where. We trade phone numbers and I go home. 15 minutes later I get a text that she found it.

She says her boyfriend wants $150 but will probably take less. $125 later, and it's in my truck bed.

A 9/16" ball bearing dropped from 24" rebounds to about 22". This emblem on the base looks like an eagle and an anchor.

Name on the foot says FISHER (?)

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Use some chalk and cover that use white chalk and you’ll be able to see it better.  But definitely a nice score.

It is indeed a Fisher!  Score!  You lucky bastard, that is! :lol:

I had no idea what I was looking at in her front yard other than a rusty old anvil that was in pretty good condition. The photos are taken after a bit of cleaning.

I weighed this. 157 pounds
