I've seen a few at farm auctions over the years... This might get you started in a direction too.

Check out farm supply and tack shops. Farrier supply companies as well.

They are all over the place depending on where ya live.

Fleamarkets, tack auctions, etc etc.

In the interum, if you are wanting a low cost start,,, My first anvil was a steel I-beam, and my second was a section of railroad track.

Yep- Railroad rail comes in different weights. Got an 18" length of the heavy stuff, bored a hole in the top for a pritchel, and one to hold a hardy, used a torch to cut out the web of the rail under one end to make a horn- and have used it for years.

For about the first two years when I taught myself to do it I never used a hearty or a horn. By the time I thought I needed them Id bought an anvil.

The Ibeam worked pretty well. Welded some strap iron on the sides to reinforce it, then ran some hard face over the top, a little work with a grinder and it worked really well.
