This one would really take care of Wiley Coyote!! I believe this may be a Hay Budden anvil, I have had this for about 25 years. A neighbor gave it to me back when I was in high school. It was sitting, rusting in his father in-law's barn and had been there for as long as the family could remember. I just hauled it out of my parents barn yesterday and did a little research, it's going in the "industrial section" of the cave. The side is too far gone to see any maker's marks but on the foot under the horn is still a stamp "A24332" . I'm hoping that's a number assigned to the early Hay Budden anvils made in Brooklyn, which would put this around the late 1890's. It's dimensions are; 31" long total, 5" x 19" table, 2 1/2" x 5" step, 1 1/4" hardy, 3/4" pritchel, 12" tall, 6" waist, 10 1/2" x 11 1/2" foot, and the last number I have is, on the bathroom scale, it weighs in at 224.5 #'s. Also it has a long, high-pitched ring when even lightly struck! If any one knows more about anvils, I'd love your input/opinions!!
