Default Help identifyng old Anvil

the 1st anvil of couse is broken (first 2 pics) and has a side wedge as seen. i can make out the letters "ELD" on the 1 side above the base. the other anvil (pic 3-4) i couldnt find a name on it . i also looked for numbers for numeric weighing on both and nothing . figure posting these pics may strike someone with the knowledge. thank you stakers for any help.

Don`t know much about anvils, but interesting. Sometimes large peaces of steel are interesting, theres no voice, but they sometimes can tall a story .Check my profile , My tractor is much the same way. Execpt I`ve been around that tractor sence 1947, that's when my Father brought him, and I can tell a long story about him. Roger Weinhold AKA Charlie 1925

I don't see anything that looks broken on the first anvil. The thing on the side is some sort of upsetting block. The second one is in rough shape from the pics..looks to have both a hardy tool hole and a pritchell hole.

You should try asking over on iforgeiron.

What comes to mind with the first anvil, is it might be for a special use, like making cow bells.?
