Well, since it looks like you are reading & posting through google groups,
you probably didn't realize that the post you are replying to is quite
old. I don't remember seeing anybody on here post an anvil for sale for
at least a couple of years.
Secondly, mercury is going for about $40 a pound right now. $120 is
pretty cheap price for a Peter Wright, though for a 100# anvil, it could
be a fair price if whoever had it had a use for the mercury.
Good luck finding an anvil! If you want some advice on how to get one at
a decent price, and I'll post some suggestions for you.

Very nice Peter Wright 132lb anvil for sale $ 400.00 CDN firm. I'm located
in Surrey B.C.
Pictures on request.
Thanks for looking it up. I'm at work so I didn't have the time to
research it too much. Yeah, kind of a low-ball offer, considering at the
time the CAD was just slightly above USD in value (I finished paying of my
25# Canadian Giant in 2004).
