Wagner Ware Pie Shaped Logo....
 
Dropped in to the local Thrift store today . Picking anything but Asian
cast iron has been few and far between for months. Fortunately, I located a
pie shaped logo Wagner Ware Sidney -O- #3 skillet. Cook surface is smooth
without cracks or scars.... the heat surface is wobble free and has age
appropriate patina. I dig it... a lucky find . Will replace my two later era
Wagner #3 skillets. I gave $5. Keep looking !

Nickel plated?

Mike,

I lack the metallurgic skills to differentiate. It feels as though
it weighs the same as my other Wagner Ware Sidney -O- #3
skillet (later logo). I do not see anything that would lead me
to expect nickel but that is an uninformed guess. Maybe someone
here with knowledge of what to look for could chime in.

Charles

upon closer exam I can see why you asked ... I defer to the experts.

It will be apparent after it comes out of the lye bath. They were offered nickel plated, though.

Thank you Doug. If it is nickel it will be a first for me. I need to research
this a bit as my knowledge base is lacking regarding nickel plated cast iron.

Charles

Doug.. just found your resource page . Thank you for the information.

Just struck me as plated. The one I had was far darker, but I guess we will see! Either way, I like the pie logos!
