Below are some photos of my first anvil.
I got it off eBay. It wasn't described exactly accurate. You'll see the poc marks I would prefer not be there. Although, it is in great shape and serviceable otherwise. I can tell you this. I took the photos on eBay for being representative of the anvil. I've bought and sold over one thousand items and never had something like this not mentioned before. I did pay a fair price so I'm not going to belly ache anymore. I just want to inform others to ask for additional information if you can not examine it first hand. I went to pick it up. They didn't show then Dropped it off for me. Clever of them.

First post:  Your anvil is from the 1860's.  Unusual that your Fisher anvil had the casting defects.  The rust marks on the top are from sitting around unprotected.  If the anvil is used, they will eventually work themselves flat.
