Default Unknown Cast Iron

Hi All,

I just bought a couple cast irons from an estate sale and I am in the process of restoring them. One has no markings but looks old and I was seeing if anyone had any ideas as to what it might be. Also, I found an "Erie" #11 836 which I've since learned is extremely rare. There's no lid for it and the Erie has been worn away. Does anyone know a fair price to ask after I reseason it, as is?

I paid $13 for the pair.

Seems unlikely the ERIE would have worn off. If someone's copy using an Erie, and they filled in the mark (leaving size and pattern number on such copies is not uncommon), it looks like a very competent copy.

The other is a bottom pot for a 3-piece combo cooker.

The last "E" is slightly visible still but I will get a picture and post it.

Is the bottom of the 3 piece combo cooker an old item, a newer item? junk? lol

Thanks for the info!

People collect them. They were produced by more than one maker.

More of the 836 11. Now that you mention a copy Iím wondering if it is too. That would be very disappointing.
