Default Griddle I.D.

No clue on the maker of this handled griddle. The "7" is slightly off the 6 o'clock position. There is a "413" placed seemingly in a random position. The outside profile of the side is one I haven't seen before. Any thoughts on mfg. and age?

That profile does seem a little bit different from either "old style" or "new style" handle griddles. The assumption would be the 413 is some kind of molder's mark for piecework pay, hastily stamped in the inside of the sand mold before it was reassembled and the iron poured. Normally, such marks are one or two characters, so would we assume there were up to 413 molders in this foundry? If so, one would think we'd see these pans every time we looked on eBay or went iron hunting.

Thanks Doug. Agree, the edge profile is unlike any I have run across.
