Default Are These Plated?

Just picked up a nice set of small logo griswold skillets. Pretty sure the #4 is plated, not sure what finish it is though. Also the #10 looks a little bright, itís so hard to tell if itís just bright iron or if itís indeed plated. If they are plated how should I go about restoring them? To be honest Iím not a fan of plated cast iron and would prefer to take it back to bare cast iron if possible.

Thanks!

Plating extremely doubtful on SBL late handle skillets. Sandblasted maybe? Small pics, hard to tell. Removing plating is not cost-effective. For chrome, the iron would have been polished in ways not done on bare iron versions, so what's underneath is not the same.

The #5 and 10 are definitely not plated. Not sure what's up with the #4 but it doesn't really look sandblasted either.
