Default Hello From Northern Wisconsin

New to the forum but have been cooking with cast iron for close to 15 years now. What got me interested in cast iron was Griswold Victor 9 skillet. My interests are in Erie and Griswold skillets that I can use for day to day cooking. I recently acquired an Erie skillet which I'll add a picture of once I finish cooking dinner with it.

However, I have one exception this cast iron kettle I bought at an antique store when I lived in Ithaca New York about a decade ago. I liked the detail where the handle attaches and it was not very expensive, under $20.00 if I remember correctly. After moving back to Wisconsin it sat in a closet for about ten years and I kind of forgot about it. I got it cleaned up last week and seasoned. After doing some research on this kettle and discovered that the gate mark likely means it is from the 1800s. I know its a bit of a shot in the dark but is anyone able to narrow the age down more?
