Default Craigslist find

Looks great, no sign of coal pitting. Is that the makers mark in the center of the pan?

No Bonnie. It looks to be a flaw when casted. I think once the seasoning is removed the maker mark will be revealed!!

I was clicking back and forth between the picture of your pan and the one posted here. That design flaw is something both skillets seem to have in common. They are both in the same spot on the pan.

Interesting. I did not notice that when researching it on this site. Do you think it was because it was from the same casting?

I don't know. I am just learning about these Erie skillets now. That sounds like a good question for DougD.


I just happen to be searching for a Griswold Wheat pan. What a coincidence.

My guess would be casting flaw, and I don't think it's in the exact same spot as the one pictured on the Erie page, which appears to be a letter D. Maker's marks on Erie skillets tend to be in the right hemisphere, and anywhere from about 2 o'clock to just to the right of the size number.

Yes I do. Usually use it during the winter months. Find the Lye tank much easier for the "mass" amounts of cast iron I want to clean. Here in the desert Southwest dry temps get up to 110 degrees of dry heat. Amazingly have found that even the most disgusting pans clean up in one day in the lye tank.
