Default BSR #8 Chicken Fryer (I think)

Okay, I got a BSR chicken fryer, I think. Based on my BSR #8 skillet (the handle is the same), I believe it to be a BSR chicken fryer. On the bottom it says"8 G 2". It does NOT say, MADE IN USA. Any ideas on what it is, if I'm wrong, and how old. It also has a lid...

Smooth bottom, no heat ring? Sounds like it might be a BSR chicken fryer, but HD is correct, need a pic.

I have the same one with the dimensional markings and it does not say MADE IN USA. No BSR should have the RM style size/pattern letter markings and MADE IN USA (although I am sure someone is scouring the web right now to try to contradict that).

It was most likely sold as a BSR Century in the late 1950s/early 1960s. The bottom of the lid will tell more about whether or not it probably was sold new around the same time as the pan or not. Probably was.

The lady that owned it (wife's great grandmother), was married in 1910, and died in 1960, if that helps....and she was 65 when she passed....the fryer was old then ?

Doug, it it a hallmark of BSR lids that they are thicker around on one end than the other? And are any other brands like that? Thanks.
