Default Un Marked Square Pan

Picked up a square pan. looks old thin wall casting. The only marking is a letter R at the root of the handle on the bottom. Will get some pictures when it is out of the tank.

Here is the picture. The pan is about 9 inches square. It is a thin wall casting. I expected it to say Wagner under the crud. I think I have seen this font R on other Wagner's.

Kyle wish it had more marks. Do you think it is old because of the thin casting?

I think it is from around the 50's 0r 60's, but I am not too sure. I have owned a few and the older ones seem to be smoother in my experience. I don't think it is an import, but I have been wrong before.

Gentlemen, I would think it is a older Lodge. I have several older Lodge square pans and several more that are grill pans. These lack the modern Lodge trade mark so I know they are older. I say Lodge because I have never seen a square pan that was not a Lodge. Might be a different manufacture but if so it would be really rare and unknown, so probably Lodge.

David do your old Lodge pans have an "R" on the bottom of the handle?
