I picked up a new anvil this weekend. Can any of you anvil experts give me info on it such as manufacturer, age, your thought on condition etc.

Sorry for the sideways pictures. Maybe someone can rotate them for me.

New Anvil
 
That anvil is big. Jennifer (Allessence) would love to have that one! How heavy is it?

If that's the weight code stamped on there of 324, it should weigh 396 pounds! That's a whopper! Looks to be a German patterned anvil.

I'm not sure how much it weighs, It has 3 2 4 stamped on the side. So I think its either 324lbs or if they are stone markings it would be 396lbs. I don't have a good scale to weigh it.

My thoughts exactly--the long tail is a giveaway. I'd put the weight closer to 360 lbs. Either way a very nice find. What did it cost?

I traded a gun for it. I figure I have about 1300 in it.

My goodness. fatfrank. :)
How you been doing , Jay?

Allessence, aka Jennifer, is probably your best bet to identify that anvil.

Hey Rod, its me. I haven't checked in in a while. Lots have been going on over the last 5-10 years. Been busy, bought a house, built a new shop, bought farm/ranch, cows, tractors, raising kids, etc.
