There are lots of opinions on anvils and they also vary from country to country. Popular belief is that old is better than new, and sellers want you to believe that old adds value to it.
Rather than rattle on my own ideas on this, here is a sensible little youtube video on the matter by someone who has a few anvil himself and a lifetime of hitting them in any way he can 🙂
The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
