This 400 lb pound Antique Peter Wright Anvil is a collectible classic. The original lettering on the front reads Peter Wright Patent England. This anvil is very old and some of the letters are hard to read, especially Peter and the T on Patent. We are still researching this rare piece. We believe that it is from the period of 1860-1885. We believe this because we know that faces made with more than 1 piece date were created before 1885 and if you look at the heel, you will see where the additional piece came off due to use.
We also believe this is a VERY limited piece because we cannot find another anvil with a number on the very bottom front. in the middle center, this one has the number 11.
We are wondering if Peter Wright numbered his first anvil's. We are trying to confirm that this could be the 11th 400 lb Peter Wright Anvil ever built. We know that Peter Wright used new iron and no scraps. The word England appears on the front of our anvil and the more common Peter Wrights which are smaller that saturate the market, DO NOT have this.

From left to right the numbers signifying size are 3 2 13 (English Hundred Weight)
In the center of the bottom is number 11
The heel holds a hand forged Hardy Tool, also included.
