I'm no expert by any means, but I'm going to say

you have yourself a Southern Mystery Skillet. Nobody knows who made them but they are distinguished by several aspects found on yours, notably:

1. Heat Ring
2. Raised number on handle
3. ...

Re: Funny Story from the Field...or, Should I Have Told Him

The only 9 I've ever found was an unmarked Griswold "7 series" that was (for some crazy reason) chromed. Unfortunately the chrome is all worn off the inside except for the top half-inch or so. I've...

Funny Story from the Field...or, Should I Have Told Him?

I always say I probably walk 2-3 miles doing laps at the flea markets for every pan I buy. Yesterday was one of those days where I wasn't finding anything worthwhile...the best pan I saw was...

Need Help Pricing a Pan to Sell...

Today I picked up the dreaded "double logo" Wagner/Griswold #6 grill pan with the intent to clean and resell. Usually I try to price a bit below ebay prices to get a quick sale, but the only one of...

Re: Crusty 5

I certainly wouldn't bet against your assessment. I love getting pans that are so barnacled up I don't know what they are, but haven't found one in quite some time.

Re: Biggest Pan to Date for Me...

Not it didn't spin but wasn't far from it. It was semi-cruddy so when it gets out of the lye it could be better or worse.

Biggest Pan to Date for Me...

The flea was almost a total bust this morning but on my next to last pass I saw a guy selling some jewelry out of a big pan with giant spouts. He let me dump the jewelry out and I flipped it over to...

Re: Help Identifying This Pan

I have the distant cousin to that pan-an unmarked Griswold number 9 with Victor ghosts that has all but the top 1/2 inch of plating worn off inside and a patch on the bottom is worn as well. I...

Re: Griswold slant #8

The best way to gauge the value of anything is to see what other people have paid for a similar item. The easiest way to do that is to check on ebay and use the "Sold" filter to find what someone...

Re: Plated Cast Iron?

I have a plated unmarked Griswols "7-series" number 9 which I wish were bare iron because the bottom 3/4 of the inside is bare and a circle in the center of the bottom is bare as well. Haven't used...

Re: Victor Pan

Was that from the jockey lot in Anderson by any chance? Went there as a kid it was a pretty big deal back in the 80s.

Re: This Mornings Breakfast

Everything looks great. One thing that's starting to tick me off is many of the youtube "chefs" who are saying that new Lodges are not good because they are a rougher texture. Although I do love to...

Re: A Good Day at the Antique Store

You're darn right it was a great deal! Most places I've seen that sell Iron would try to sell the Puritan or the Chicken Fryer alone for what you paid for all.

Re: Found a Gate Marked #7 Single Spout.....

Re: Identification Help

The raised 8, small pour spouts, inset HR, and triangular pad for the handle are all reminiscent of my "Southern Mystery Skillet". However, the ribbed handle and raised molders marking are not like...

Re: Help with a Couple of Items Please...

Well maybe I didn't pay too much. I saw where a similar lid sold on ebay for over $50 when shipping was factored in so if the skillet turns out to be worthless I'm still well in the black.

Re: John C. Johnson Co. Birmingham, ALA

That's a great hypothesis! Since there were obviously equal numbers of all three pieces produced. Any idea when they stopped making the combo cooker and is that the only JCJ product they made?

Re: John C. Johnson Co. Birmingham, ALA

I inherited the lid and second piece from my grandmother. From what I've seen the larger base piece is by far the least common. My GM put a seasoning on them that looks like a beautiful black...

Re: Flea Market 3/3/18.

Although on this piece the handle and the spouts tell you that it is a more recent BSR, I still love seeing how a pan can come back from all that crud and finding out exactly what is under it all!
