Default Re: Don't Show, Just Tell

I have been collecting for about one year. Never thought I would ever have have an interest in cast iron. I really enjoy the transformation from rust and crud to a like new finish.

1. What is the first piece of cast iron cookware you actually owned?
A 1940-1960 Lodge #3. Cost me $2.00.

2. Do you consider yourself more a collector, a user, or both?
Collector, although I use my corn stick pans from time to time.

3. What is the first piece you acquired with an eye toward collecting?
The Lodge #3, my "experimental" piece.

4. What is the first truly collectible piece you acquired?
Although all CI is collectible to me, I guess my first "better" piece was a either a small logo Griswold #10 or a Wagner #8 chicken fryer.

5. If you were forced to give up your collection except for one piece, what would that piece be?
My Lodge single notch hammered #3. Really fine finish, extra smooth cooking surface. A very nice little skillet.

6. Knowing it's hard to name a single favorite, name up to three CI items, rare or not, on your "holy grail" or "bucket list".
I would love to have any brand name, nickel plated, hammered skillet with the original label still on it.

7. What do your friends and family think of your obsession?
I'm the only one who "gets it."
