Anchor for sale.

Ok. I have an anchor that I know little about. I purchase storage lockers and this massive anchor was in a locker from today. From what research I could do, it is a Northill style anchor made by Danforth. I can not believe it has ever been used due to the condition and the fact that the sticker is still affixed to the side of it identifying it as a '50-U Danforth Utility Anchor."
I do not know the exact value, nor do am I an anchor expert (obviously). However, I do love the art of a deal and I truly love learning about all of the wild things I find in my lockers.
It is for sale, and I am open to reasonable offers. I am located in Mississippi.
Thanks in advance.

It looks like you've put it on a scale but offer no weight amount.
Thanks for listing your location .. many overlook that.
I had one that was more typical in construction but sent it to another TF member.
Good pictures

Weight

I have not weighed it. The picture that looks like a scale is a furniture dolly used to move it. I'm not sure if I can weigh it. I was hoping that the model number would suffice, but if not, I will see what I can do to make it happen.
Thank you.

Where in Mississippi? I used to live in Holly Springs and make it back occasionally. I too, am interested in the weight.

Herring fishermen in San Francisco area are trading up from Northill (for their nets) to Bruce.

I weighed it...dang thing is a little heavy. My bathroom scale says it weighs 70lbs.

I live just south of Jackson Mississippi in a little town by the name of D'lo.

I had good luck selling my two extra anchors on Craigslist.
