additionally the teardrop handle and similar grooves in handle, I found in Redbook, wonder if this could be early Griswold ?

Nothing (at all) to indicate any connection to Griswold. The M and W are likely the initials of the person who created the mold and cast the pan, common when molders were paid by the piece.
