Vintage Bits

Hi everyone,

I've recent acquired a collection of vintage bits and have been sorting through them. Some are stamped, other are not. There are a couple that have stamps I haven't seen before.
One is an anchor (no lettering, just an anchor). The second one is a horseshoe. The horseshoe is a little worn and looks like it my have had a letter inside it (possibly an "R").
I'm hoping to find out a little more about these bits (manufacture, age, etc.) I've searched for websites that might shed some light on these stamps, but haven't found anything useful. Any ideas?

Can you post some pics? Different angles of the bits, the stamps, etc.

The anchor sounds like North & Judd.

I have a couple North & Judd bits myself. Nothing fancy but they are still nice using bits to this day (I am thinking they are around 100 years old).

Can you post pictures for no other reason than I like looking at vintage tack?

I really do enjoy neat old things.

Sorry for the delay in re-posting. Had to get some pics together. Here are just a few. If you have any info on these, or even know where I can find info, that would be great.
