Reply to "My work, Fallbrook Forge"

In my area there was a time when you came across anvils all the time at flea markets, estate sales, auctions, etc...it was not uncommon to find nice 140-280lb anvils for 20$-50$... and then one of the scrap yards started  gobbling them up. Now a good -used steel anvil with good rebound and nice ring (not cast iron, not cracked, not hollow, etc..) is harder to find - and more expensive than an all original single action colt.

You can buy a new Rigid / Peddinghaus / NC forged steel anvil for 300$ - 2500$ depending on weight, finish, style, etc.

You have to be wary of a LOT of the anvils on Amazon... Chinese made cast iron, sometimes with a "hard" steel plate welded on the top to help a little with the "ring" or "rebound" tests... these are USUALLY powder coated or enameled to help hide the welds or casting seams..
