Default Help ID a BSR Lid??

Hi everyone.

I picked this lid up a couple weeks ago.

I think it is Early BSR Red Mountain but looking under the rim has me puzzled.
There is no lip to hold it on top of a pot\skillet.

Any idea what this is for?

Thanks,

C.J.

I have a BSR lid cast from that same pattern. Mine has a rim, though. Can't say why yours doesn't. Apparently served someone well enough without it, though, that it didn't get trashed.

Doug, thanks for the reply.

I guess it is possible but I did not think there would be two molds with the same markings.
Seems like the molder temporarily modified the mold to remove the ridge.
Without the ridge, it does sit on a Lodge #8 also so guess it has multi uses.
I think I will have to keep it.

The molder would have been in big trouble if he modified the pattern. Patterns were expensive, and removing the ridge from one would mean it could never make a mold for a regular lid again. Modifying a sand mold so that a lid would be made without the ridge would require filling in a groove the entire circumference of the mold half. I would look at your lid closely for indication that someone perhaps just ground the ridge off the lid (for whatever reason).
