A coat of light oil on the anvil would be good but also depends on what it is on. If wood, I would space it off the wood slightly unless you live in the desert. I would build a small lean-to cover over all of it just to keep the rain and snow off. Light oil on all hand tools, maybe WD-40. I have seen an anvil that sat out for 35 years with no cover and it held up fine. Just my 2 Centavos.
