I'd say that the condition, as long as it's a steel anvil and not cast
iron would be more important to know about than the name unless you run
across somebody who is collecting ACME anvils.
If the face and horn are in really great condition, it might fetch $3
to $4 per pound. If it's useable, $2 to $3 per pound. These days you
are competing with many companies selling new anvils. Check around.
ACME in "Sears" talk = a Hay-Budden anvil.
Although Hay-Budden made anvils for many companies which
were sold under the "Hay-Budden" name Sears decided to
have their anvils use the name "Acme."
From just before the turn of the century the anvils were made
by adding a steel plate to the wrought iron body. But around
1908 Hay-Budden/Acme anvils were made with the entire
top above the "waist" out of tool steel.
It seems you have a nice anvil available to trade for just
about any lighter anvil (assuming conditions are similar).
