Default Griswold Safety Kettle?

I came across this today for a few bucks and figured it was worth a shot. I got it into the light and saw ďSafetyĒ and ď8Ē. I then saw ď858Ē. A bit of research leads me to believe this is unmarked Griswold Safety Kettle. Is this right trivet? Itís missing the lid and I doubt if I go back to the sale it will be there, but I forgot the 17 inch griddle I bought (I doubt itís still there, ugh) so I might as well look.

Am I correct to assume this is the kettle? Itís in the etank now, so Iíll have a better idea of additional markings tomorrow. What year was this made? Pre large block logo?

Flat bottom safety cooker. Later versions are seen with coiled assist handle/lid securing clip and slant EPU markings. Also seen marked Skinner Safety with a Griswold instruction sticker on bottom. Bail and assist handle both originally had turned wood handles. Trivet is not original (nor likely even Griswold). Original trivets were stamped metal. Lid was tin with perforations to strain through and a hinged hatch lid to cover them. Shown RB pg. 152.

Thank you, Doug. So this is the earliest version of the Kettle? To be clear, this kettle had wood handles? Or later versions?

Yours had wooden handles that have been broken or rotted off.

E-tank did this piece right. Just some oil and waiting for an oven full to season.
