I would not even think of buying tools from a blacksmith. Peter Wright anvils supposedly had a forged wrought iron body with a "chilled steel face" forge welded to it. The seller is full of BS as to the age of the anvil- late 19th century to the 1920's would be about right.
The seller (or someone along the line) decidely reduced the value of the anvil by welding the baseplate to it. Some character in a fab shop or truck garage likely did that modification.
Lynn The weight system of an anvil is only a google away: Blacksmithing FAQs Anvils You do the math, 142 pounds? I am neither a pricing price expert or anvil expert.
But again, I am not enough of an anvil guy to say what a pristine surface is worth vs. Anything can be fixed, and after fixing the value is higher.
Edit: You mixed me up, you already have a 1-2-2 and asking about another larger maybe?
for an honest 200lb no-exaggeration anvil, I might offer 0 - A start 2nd edit: The seller claims to be a blacksmith, this is always been a big warning sign!

Feeling chastened, I was determined to give it another go.
Last week I got my chance at ENO’s co-production with Opera Graz.
La Traviata, variously translated as “The Fallen Woman” or “The Lost Woman”, is based on Dumas’s play The Lady of the Camélias.
A courtesan called Violetta is stuck in a round of endless parties until, Alfredo, here played by Ben Johnson as a geeky writer, convinces her to live in the country.
