Probably unmarked Wagner. Often photo uploads fail because the image size is too large. See sticky topics on adding photos to posts.

Is it a #7 skillet? Does it have a country of origin? As DougD stated, unmarked Wagner probably.

It doesn't have a country of origin, read that could indicate pre 1960. Doesn't have a #7 on it. Baby smooth cooking surface and interior though. Outside needs attention. Paid $20. Good deal for personal usage. Any idea of value?

That would be a Wagner. Any future requests for ID help should follow the photo posting guidelines and show the entire bottom of the piece, including the handle, in a single shot.

Thank you and, I will. Just got a new phone. Have to get in and figure out whereto switch phone resolution since they're up to like 10,000mb per shot now now lol. When I get it stripped I'll try and get it adjusted. Would anyone happen to know the ballpark year and resale value after taken back down and properly re seasoned? Plan on passing this and a whole array down after reworking to my son who is a culinary natural.

Yes it does have a #7 at the top end near the font edge. I emerged it in a 50.. 50 solution of vinegar and water. Did great for all of the light stuff, but there's a huge mass build up around the entire outside. 80 grit would take days. Pulled it out, rinsed it out really well with cool water and it's in the oven now drying. Going to leave it in for a half hour then put a thin layer of canola over it to prevent rust. Going to set up a lye bath for it. Have the oven on 335, also have a lodge that I resurfaced and taking another skim coat of canola in the bottom. The rest has just a slight tack. Cast iron is becoming an odd, but very interesting Hobby LOL. Was a machinist for 25 years. Like working with my hands and Metal. Much better working for myself haha

With vintage cast iron, you have to stop thinking like a machinist and start thinking like a chemist. If you don't want to destroy collectible value, that is.
