Default Help ID Unmarked Skillets?

I found these two skillets at a garage sale today with hard to identify markings.
I think the 9-inch is a Wagner. The other (~10 3/8 inch) is practically bare. I looked at some guides but they are only really helpful for pans with clearer markings.

Thanks for your help!

The other is a BSR.

Do you know when it is from? I can barely make out what I think is a 2 0 on the bottom next to the handle.

It's marked 8A. The small pour spouts and the nominal size/pattern letter marking place it early 1950s to about mid-1960s.

Alright so two good finds for $2 each. I'm going to strip the seasoning off these with a vinegar bath if there are no objections. Thanks for the help!

Also, when would you place the Wagner pan?

Vinegar only works on rust. See the restoration pages on the main site for removing old seasoning/crud.

Since the Wagner is not marked Made In USA, it is late 50s - early 60s.
