Stolen Anvils, be on the lookout.

 I'm just surprised it took this long, given the price of anvils these days.

Recently the Ag Hall of Fame in Bonner Springs, Kansas had been broken into and a number of anvils from their collection were taken. These anvils have a large number welded onto them as with a stick welder, so are pretty distinctive. The numbers were on different spots on the anvils, some on the horns and some on the bodies. Some of them have the names of cities or towns on them indicating where the collector acquired the anvil welded onto the bodies as I recall.

 

Please be on the lookout for these items in your travels, or on FB or auction sites you frequent, in-person auctions, etc.

 

If you find one or more of them, contact Ken DeVan, he is the Outreach Coordinator, or anyone from the Ag Hall of Fame. Ken’s email: Oregon.trail.farm@gmail.com.

I used to drive past the place for work when I was still in school even had a after work party hosted there. Its a really nice place for seeing some of the bread baskets heritage. 

 

I hate to see that its gotten to the point people are stealing from museums/heritage sites and hope they are able to recover their anvils.
