Default Thrift Shop Finds

Hey friends, I'm rather new at collecting cast iron, but i found these three at a thrift shop today. Could y'all help me identify them?

First I found this griddle. Markings 9 NG at 12 o clock and markings H S at 6 o clock

Second I found a 7 stick cornstick pan. Markings 7A on the back

and a five stick cornstick pan. one small B on the back.

Thanks for any help you're able to give!

That griddle is a Lodge, 1950's to early 1960's if I'm correct.

The 7 stick corn bread pan is a BS&R.

The 5 stick might be a Lodge. I'm not positive on this one as I can't see the bottom by the handles.

The 5-stick pan has the hallmarks of an unmarked Wagner, except they were not known to make a 5-stick version, only 7-sticks.

These two pages help ID unmarked pieces by the major 20th-century makers, and decipher numbers and letters:

Is there any possibility on knowing the timeframe they were made?
I will post a picture of the handles later!

The shape of the handles is not consistent with Lodge cornstick pans. The sticks on theirs are also uni-directional. Although a Lodge 7-stick mini pan offered in the late-1990s to 2010s mimicked the Wagner tea-size design.

Other than it's not Lodge or Wagner, no. The incised B tends to indicate whoever made it used multiple patterns and was keeping track of their production.
