This is the kind of thing you get in with your electric bill when you live in the original Atomic City, we are in sector Y, just a couple hundred yards from the security fences which are at the foot of the ridge that separates town from the Y12 complex.

I will polish it up a bit and maybe grind a spot of two just to get rid of some burrs.
I'll get a few more photos. 
It came out of Kentucky. A truck driver friend of mine had it given to him, and he gave it to me.
There is a hardened plate on top, I think that is pretty common on the older vises.

Do you plan to dress the face Ray? Any markings for the manufacturer/ weight/age. It looks like there is a hardened face on the top. That is a beautiful looking anvil. Looks like it has some age to it. How did you find it?
Do me a favor and show me pictures of all sides.
I see some markings on the first pic.

Thank you Unclbuz. We should all take that approach, and leave these forums for talking about boats.

I wish to apologize for posting something that started the current line of comments. My attempt at sharing something I found humorous evidently touched a nerve. If I post again I shall attempt to exhibit more restraint.
