A 1713 1900 ?? Buel Patent ?? Anvils in America – Based on the serial # this should be 1898 so I’m not sure if the serial # or the year are wrong in Anvils in America. I wonder if the serial number should be 17013, 17103, or 17130 instead. N/A
  17465   96 Trenton 1900 From u/SaurSig on Reddit
  24197 1901 300 Not Visible IN Facebook This is an interesting anvil that has had a lot of repairs. It has an oval shaped base which isn’t normally seen till 1907. It also seems to be missing the weight markings.

Hopefully as more equally large anvils from this age are identified we’ll know if this is an outlier or something else.
