Default Help Identifying Unmarked #5 Skillet

I think it is a Lodge but not 100% The #5 is raised on the handle with I believe a small letter underneath. There is a heat ring on the bottom with no notches.

Hi TravD,

I'm no expert, but based on the "Identifying No-Name Iron" section of this site it looks like a Lodge to me. Specifically:

  • Skillets have inset heat ring with single notch opposite handle at 12 o'clock.
  • Raised size number on top of handle or " high size number at 12 o'clock
  • Raised small molder's mark letter at 6 o'clock
  • Some earlier "no-notch" patterns were re-purposed, but otherwise have the same characteristics

Hope this helps
