Hey - I have seen this anvil tag a lot but can't find clarification on what year this is and or if it is vintage or not ? Appreciate the feedback

Yeah, 90s reprint. Does the copy right under the print show a date? Here's the Anvil tag line-up - 80s are the first 3 photographed. I think the last two are 90s - but definitely the redbar.

thanks Jimmy appreciate it.

What about the Anvil Blue bar tag? Looks just like red bar tag but the bar is blue there are some reports that some of them are legit vintage and others are copies, but i dont think ANY are made in USA....

I'm not sure when the blue emerged - I think it was post 2000. Legit vintage for me means it's 15 or so years old - so I guess technically it could have been printed in 2000 and be vintage. But it could also technically be a repro that is now vintage by definition of age alone.

Again, I lost track of Anvil after the red bar - so dig around and look for a timeline.
