c.1860s as my guess. The 8 9 are size markings to denote that the waffle iron is made for both a No. 8 and a NO. 9 stove.

It's missing the base ring. The pins on opposite sides fit into notches in the top of the ring, and the paddles are flipped by pivoting on the pins.

Like so:

The one in my photo, probably ~$200 these days. Yours, unfortunately, is of unknown make; perhaps several foundries copied that pattern as well. If it had the base, was cleaned and seasoned, and had no pitting or damage, probably $25-50 at an antique store.
