Anvil Identification

Recommended Posts

Hello all! 


I hope this is the right place to ask a question such as this, but I was just curious as to how old an anvil I've recently acquired is.


I don't have any photos at the moment, but it's a Trenton anvil, weighs 125 pounds (and is inscribed with such), and has a serial number (or at least, what I'm assuming is the serial number) of 127313. 


Does anyone have any idea when an anvil with such a serial number was made?


Thank you so much!

According to the book, it was made around 1914.  It's a three-piece anvil: Cast mild steel base, forged mild steel body and horn, and high carbon steel face, all forge-welded together.  


Trentons are generally very good anvils.
