    Russ, re your post#58, I think the word on the top at least is Joshua.

    checking my reference (Anvils in America) there is a Wilkinson Anvil marked down low like yours - Joshua Wilkinson Warranted.

    likely thats what yours is.

    Just finished a new rail-line anvil with my 10 y.o. grandson. I taught him oxy cutting on some scrap, them marked out the anvil shape on the rail line and let him at it.
    Don't worry, he got plenty of help and guidance - and supervision and was suitably kitted out. Sorry I didn't take any photos of the sparks and "lava" as he called it, but I kept my eye on him at close range instead....
    Between us we ground it clean, I put some weld beads on the curved top surface and then we ground it roughly level. The finishing touch was to surface grind the top and sides. With a lick of red enamel, it's now his pride and joy.
    Oh, I made him promise to pass it on to his grankids and tell them how we made it

    Hi Joe.
    The young feller is very fortunate to have a grandad like you.

    It is something he will treasure and use and remember all through his life. It ticks all of the boxes.
    It sounds like he will be a hands-on type of kid.

    Joe if you want to bring him around some time we can light the Forge and show him how to use it. Could even Forge him a little hammer head.

    I'm sure they would love to come and see you - and so will I. I'll ask them.
    I'll be in touch.
    Thank you for the offer!

    Cheers, Joe
