    Better keep an eye out for the fire department cause that's a smokin' deal!

    WOW , that is a heck of a deal. Sellers near me would be asking $600 at least for a no name anvil.

    That will be a real asset to your shop. Can't tell the height but the top of anvil should be knuckle height making a fist standing next to it.

    Looks like a mousehole or variant of that style. Great deal!

    Steal of a deal!

    That's a great size anvil, and will be very sellable if you ever put it on the market. Figure that it should run at least $3 per pound considering the quality of the face, edges and horn. That's it's on the "small" side makes it rather sought after because folks like them since they can be moved around more easily. I wouldn't quibble about the price if you asked even $5 per pound because it's in good shape and has the side table.

    Yours is what's often referred to as a wheelwright's anvil because of the odd protrusion. Being below the main face, it's not as handy for general smithing, but better to have it than not.

    Re: Blacksmithing tools

    On that anvil, I would not use paint. Personally, I would leave it except for a coat of oil. I did use a wire wheel on mine just to rid it of surface rust, then oiled it. Never take away material from an antique anvil, especially the work face.
    The good folks over at I Forge Iron might be able to help you I.D. your anvil.
