It belonged to the grandfather of the farmer who rents the farm. All surfaces are flat, square, and clean. Hardy hole is not cratered and prickle? hole likewise.
The only readable words are Brooklyn NY in a semi circle below what appears to a date and maybe the manufacturer. NOT FOR SALE


Sorry for the turned picture.

It looks like a Hay Budden, they were made in Brooklyn.  There should be a serial number stamped on the foot under the horn.

What is written on it is in the shape of an oval. Brooklyn NY forms the bottom. Then on top there appears to be some script, starting with H just below the top. Then some numbers in the center. Does that sound right for a Hay Burden logo?

It is a Hay Budden, they are very good anvils.  The serial number will allow you to date the anvil.
