Easily 2 dollars a pound. Dad and I have bought many a anvil in many weights and usually get them for about 100 dollars , and those ones weigh around 50-100 pounds.

I don't know nothin', but a lot depends on the maker and age.  I know an anvil collector.  He took me on a tour of his collection, and rattled off values for a shaped pile of iron.  Some brands were rare to a collector.  Some poundages are more valuable.  I would look up the brand and make sure you aren't standing in front of a rare bird!

Like every thing else maker and condition. I sold nice 150 lbs Budden for $125.00. There are a lot of collectors for the really old ones.If you can find makers mark would go a long ways to knowing  value with some research. There is one thing looking at photo it appears someone drilled holes in the feet not good from collector point unless really rare one. All of the good ones would be strapped across the feet.Somebody told me they strapped them so not impede the resonate or ring doing something to the molecules in the hot iron. True or not who knows. Or he could just put it on Ebay see what it'll fetch.

Are you interested in buying it? Why shoot! I've seen ones like that go for anywhere between $5-$10.

Age, maker, weight, has it been recapped? Those are the four things anvil guys look at..

Maker and weight are the big concerns. If its an older English or American made it will have a makers mark and weight on it. I need more info to give you a value. Some of mine.............
