Default Griswold #8 704X skillet

Hello all,
I was at a local flea market recently and found a Griswold #8 704X skillet. Except for being the nastiest skillet in terms of years of baked on grease ' lard I have ever found, it sits solidly flat, no cracks/welds/rust pits. However there appears to be a couple or so of small pits about the size of #6 birdshot which looks as if it was made by air bubble during molding process...just a best guess. There appears to be many cross section markings from knifemarks of baking a lot of cornbread! Once the lye bath is done, I can get a better view. It is soaking in a lye bath now. According to the resources here, it is a 3-1/4 in block logo, 1920-1940.
