What color is the body painted?
a lot of them were used in high school shops, painted "surf green", I think.
That would make them from the early 1940's to about 1960, I'd guess.

Others: jump in and correct me if you know more.

If the daughter wants to do stuff, get her into the closest blacksmith club.
See:
https://spaco.org/Blacksmithing/GetStartedBsmthg.htm
for how to do that.
The article above focuses on North America, by the way.

Most of the blacksmith clubs really want to support/mentor young'uns.

I don't know about anvils, but Pete's right about finding some blacksmiths. SOFA meets at the Troy county fairgrounds, just an hour from you. They're one of the most active groups in the nation. Nice folks, there. Here's a link:
