thanks, when you have a chance to look I'd sure appreciate it.

the anvil was a truly AMAZING find... 128# and not a mark on the face - like it was rarely (or never) used... we who forge non ferrous metals for jewelry like a mirror finish face, so I likely will polish this one up & use it happily for the rest of my days

That looks like a fairly thin waist on that anvil. My two anvils, a Peter Wright (200#) and a Joshua Wilkinson (110#) (both English anvils) have thicker waists, in proportion. Are all the H-B's like that or is that a farriers anvil?

My Hay-Budden anvil is #173158 and its a 1910 and I found that #208524 is a 1913 so that gets you in the ball park some, Sorry I cant be more help.

Your anvil looks much nicer than mine, Great find!

Where is the serial number on a HB? I can barely read HB Brookly NY on mine, I never saw anything that looks like a serial number on it though.

On the base below the horn on the feet, might need to take a wire brush to it to find the numbers.

Must be easier to open the horseshoes on that larger horn.

Yes, fit any size Hoof! I'm not a blacksmith But My Dad was, He was more a Wheelwright than a Farrier, He had a Fixed location and folks came to him, What a shame I was so Young, I loved watching him Quenching the iron in all those Oil Vats and sands! Only to heat and beat them again!

For many years I had a Hay Budden 188lb farriers anvil with the swelled horn and clip. Wasn't in the greatest shape, but I had a hard time selling mine as farriers anvils have such a narrow surface that people wanting to blacksmith aren't interested.

A few years ago I did get another HB which is a blacksmith anvil and weighs 252 lbs. Was quite happy to get this one as it was much nicer than the previous one.

Are the serial number years posted anywhere on the internet?

Mine is A11608 which I gather is around 1920 from the bit of Google searching I've done.

If someone is in the looking up mood - I have a Hay Bud ser. # 6173. I think it is 163 lbs., though the 3 is upside down. Also a "B" stamped sideways. Thanks, Ray Griffiths

Just picked up a Hay-Budden from a friend. Basically a generous gift!
Serial number 160546 162 lbs
Addition stampings of 42815 on face opposite the manufacturer information.
27 on the side of the surface opposite the horn
8 under the "shelf"
by others info, I guess its from 1905-1908.
Have ordered the AIA book, but in the mean time, open to more experienced users opinions.
