Favorite Skillet Cracked. Please Help with ID.
 
I've had this skillet for many years which I got from my grandmother, who herself used it for many, many years. It's really the perfect skillet. It's very light, thin walled, and cornbread gets perfectly crispy in it just like my grandma's. Other skillets just don't do the job like this one. I cooked an upside down cake in it yesterday and re-seasoned it this morning. After seasoning it, I noticed this crack in it https://imgur.com/E6NwiqU There's a lot of sentiment baked into this well-worn skillet and I would like to replace it. Can anyone help ID it?

Pre-20th century unmarked pieces are extremely rarely identifiable as to maker.

So it could be from the 1800's? Any likelihood of finding one like it?

A handful of similar have sold on eBay recently (at eBay prices). You might be able to find one in person somewhere for much less. I have found them for as little as $5. Having said that, are you sure yours is cracked not just scratched? Does the line continue up the sidewall and/or is it visible on the bottom?
