Anvils in America, THE book about anvils


Sovie Miniature Anvil Collection

Stack of Farm Equipmnet mini anvils

Stack of Miniature Collector's or "Fantasy" Anvils

Photos provided by Ken Skaught, Medallion Estates, digitally processed by Jock Dempsey.
Grid is 1" (25mm) square behind, and 1/2" (13mm) lines below. No dimensions provided.

Oliver, Case, Massey Ferguson, Allis Chalmers, and MM fantasy anvils. These are a prime example of type 2 production advertising anvils. One master pattern has been reproduced and individual logos and devices added for each brand or customer. The examples above all use stock foundry letters glued to the pattern.

Overall this is not a very attractive pattern so it is sad to see it reproduced so many times. I do not know the source but they appear to have been made FOR collectors rather than by the manufacturers as advertising anvils. I'm told they were all produced within the last 10 years (since about 2000). Most are not bringing their original sales price. So they have not been a good investment as a "collectable".

Two International Harvester anvils. This is slightly different than those in the stack due the International Harvester logo requiring custom work. However, it is still applied to the same anvils as above. From the finish both seem to be from the same source.

Jd Argicultural mini anvil

JD punch mark impression iForge Demo "JD" anvil of unknown meaning. Its not a John Deere logo nor their casting pattern mark which is similar to my old touch mark shown a left which I stopped using when I learned it was the same as the John Deere casting mark.

So this one is a mystery except that it is obviously from the same source as all the above.
