Default Help with Identifying Gate Marked(?) Skillet

Hi. Growing up on a family farm, I learned to cook on cast iron and have never used anything else. Didnít ever give much thought to the manufacturer or history of my pans until we opened a vintage shop several years ago (I couldnít say what company made my old trusties at home because they are seasoned perfectly and I would hate to lose that season by cleaning the years off...).
Now that we have our shop I come across so many old skillets, etc., I am trying to learn about all the different pans out there. Iíve set up a lye bath and love seeing what is under all the crud when they come out and can usually identify them once clean.. I am really enjoying it.
Iím curious about this one, and canít seem to find much about it, hoping someone here can provide some insight.
It is very light weight, appears to be gate marked, has a non notched heat ring, and is marked with a blocky number 7 and ďTB.Ē The handle has lots of excess iron (seepage from casting?).
Any thoughts on this skillet? Thank you.
Ps I donít think al my attachments loaded. Learning curve I guess.
