There’s a second anvil in the background.

At almost $7/pound it seems a little steep to me, even with a stand and vise.

As with so many things price depends on condition and availability. Around here that would certainly be a fair price.

I posted the pic so this thread doesn't die when the ad goes away...

The insignia below the "G.E" looks an awfull lot like the G.E. meatball.....

What does the "G.E." stand for Jenn ?

There used to be a shaper maker called "Gould & Eberhart"
But I have never seen it abbreviated "G.E."

GE Forge:
http://geforge.com/

In 1946 Gearge Earnest started making custom farrier tools, and despite the company changing hands, they still use his name.
I don't own a pair, but I can say they make very nice nippers and I'm sure their other tools are good as well. They're pretty expensive though, not for part timers or casual use.

After Jenn mentioned it, I found that company.
However, no anvils shown, and the logo on the nippers
doesn't appear to be a round thing, like in the craigslist advert.
