I'm not sure where this should be posted, I looked at the Threads, Forums, and thought it fit here under Tools; please feel free to move it if I screwed up !

I had to post this... I found it on eBay... give me a break !  

I was looking on eBay this AM, searched "Blacksmith" so I expected to get anything and everything with the word "Blacksmith" and I did !

The post is for "1800s Antique Anvil From Blacksmith Farm Shop In Mississippi"; quoted from eBay ad !

Asking Price:   $500.00, plus $125.00 for shipping !

The Seller states:  "Very Old Anvil", I would say very beaten up Anvil, how old it is, I do not know but it has seen some major pounding / abuse !

I don't usually post on what is for sale or what is the asking price BUT this one got to me !

Cast iron that lost the face plate and kept on working the poor thing. Looks like a 100 year old man with no denture. 
Old ... as if age was a virtue for an anvil, like wine or violins.
As if ... then again ... if it ends up like my very first anvil, sitting proudly on a book shelf in my architect brother living room ... that sad anvil may retire in style.

Funny, the old man thing, and yes I expect this little old anvil to end up in a garden or next to a barn door, just for show.

It just got me in the advertisement, "1800s Antique Anvil From Blacksmith Farm Shop In Mississippi"; quoted from eBay ad !

Advertising, it is all in how you say something, and if there is someone out there that thinks it is what they want... then they will buy it for $500.00 + Shipping !

Thanks for the reply, funny how people think !

From the shape of the horn, it seems to be just a modern day made in china anvil.

I don't know enough about Anvils to even say that...!

I don't know if I would even attempt to sell it, funny !
