    Anyone know anything about antique anvils?

    I have an old "J. Wilkinson & Sons; Queens Dudley" 138# anvil.

    Any idea what these things are worth?

    The last anvil I saw sell at a local farm auction went for $400+....I don't have a clue what kind or the age.

    How many pounds is it? Also if it has a nice ring to it, it's a good one. I'll be glad to test it for you [​IMG]

    It's 138 pounds according to the hundredweight system markings 1 0 26.

    Nice ring, but kinda beat up a little on the right edge.

    You're welcome. I love trying to find out about the "treasures" I pick up while I'm out and about. I call them "treasures" - some people (DH) call them "crap".
