Default 100 lb Colombian

I opened the hatch and it jumped in... so I decided to adopt it and bring it home. From what I have found out so far it’s a 100 lb Colombian.

Neat, looks like it could use a little cleaning up. Should be a fun project!

I also picked up a Stanley No 40 at the same time. He had two more junk anvils that he was asking $100 an $150 for.
I picked the Anvil and plane up for $300.
