The pricing is fair, but people can be clueless as to what good condition truly is.
I went to look at an anvil recently, the owner said it was in good shape, but when I got there it looked like a broken down horse. I have rarely seen an anvil so distorted.
I guess it depends on your usage though, I wanted a flattish anvil for more precise banging- The owner saw it as a crude instrument. Value of an anvil is relative to location, condition, weight and to some extent who made the anvil. A lot of people want an anvil in the 75 to pound range, that drives up the price.
Big anvils sometimes sell for less.
Not everyone wants a pounder for occasional use. If the current owner did something stupid, like heavilly milling or surface grinding the top, trying to make it dead flat, that reduces its value greatly.
Consult anvilfire. You just have to hunt and be patient. Vulcan anvils are in the bottom tier for desirability.
Oct 26, Alan, from what I've just read in "Anvils in America" you've got a Fisher & Norris "Eagle" anvil. Fisher & Norris were located in Trenton, NJ, so that might be the orign of that.

I'd drive 60mi to look at the Mousehole. Get a ball bearing, drop from " onto anvil face. A good anvil will pretty much bounce it back into your hand.
I'd also drive 60 miles to look at the Mousehole, if it's decent it would go home with me. Some smiths like the Vulcan anvils, they're similar to the Fishers, cast base with a tool steel top plate.
However a lot of folks tout the Fishers for being quiet, but the ring of an anvil doesn't bother me. When the anvils get to about the horn is much more usable for me. I have a Hay Budden I like a lot.

Mousehole There is a old, old mousehole anvil in the shop, about s, well used but has a great rebound, it dings easy and has had a lot of use.
It is used for hammerins. The face is great for forging copper key ring medallions as it leaves a nice texture on one side.

Paying that much money for a piece of iron? And with no gears or slideways on it? No place to mount a chuck or tool? This is Practical Machinist. You can't machine with an anvil. And it those prices, it sure ain't practical.

I was recently going to buy a Fisher, but a good friend/smith talked me out of it and I got another Hay Budden, which are my favorite. Nice Fisher Anvil with Eagle Emblem, I believe they called Fisher the "Eagle Anvil Works". This is a lb model (has a "10" cast in the end, which indicates lbs.) Also has cast on the side, which I understand is the year of manufacturer. These anvils I read have a Cast Iron interior, with hard steel plate welded to it. Feb 06, Dating an anvil can be rather tricky! First off, if you are going to give it flowers make sure they are metal AND don't make them on IT, make them on the beat up lb Fisher. Where it gets really tricky is that the lber will get rather upset and jealous. Can't blame it really, that "thinner better looking Fisher" is difficult to compete with.
