Default Name that Anvil.... ? Large Eagle Crest Logo ?

I picked this up at a moving auction a couple weeks back, have not weighed it, just guessing 125+ in weight. I dont see any other markings, like weight or model number, but they might be hiding on it somewhere.

Any idea who made this ? That might give me some idea where to go wire brushing for the rest of the info..

Thanks !

Do you know if they coded them with the weight ? I guess Im asking if this thing has more info buried under the dirt/grime/grease that is on it ?

Ive got Peter Wright that has the English code cast into it for its weight, something like that ?

All the Fishers I have seen have the name Fisher cast into the front feet. The name usually stands proud of the casting or is negative cast. The eagle what set it off for me. Iforgeiron is a great site for information on anvils. There's also a museum dedicated to this brand in NJ

the iforgeiron.com site is pretty informative when it comes to identifying anvils.
