Default Re: Old Lodge Maybe?

This pan falls into the realm of what many assume (or hope) is a Blacklock, the predecessor of Lodge. The RB shows a substantially similar pan along with verbiage that might make one infer it is a Blacklock, although it doesn't explicitly say that. The pan shown in the book differs only slightly in that it has a single, smaller molder's mark letter like early Lodges have. Nevertheless, pans like this with the larger double letters have been lumped together into the "possible Blacklock" category. But since there have never been any skillets marked Blacklock to compare it to, and Lodge apparently didn't keep anything for posterity's sake, we'll likely never know for absolute certain.
