Default Unmarked Identification Please

Shopping in my mom's basement last week I found these three cast iron pans.

The one on the left is flat bottom. On the bottom it is stamped 10 1/2 inch skillet , Made in the USA with a B under it. The handle has the number 8 on the top side. It is the heaviest built pan of the three.

The middle says Sidney with a #7. It has a heat ring. There are no other markings on the pan. It is by far twice as light as the USA pan in weight. My research says this is a Wagner/Sidney pan manufactured between 1897 and 1903.

The one on the right is stamped 10 1/2 inch skillet, Made in Taiwan. The 1/2 marking is stamped over the I in the word inch. Flat bottomed. It is a rugged pan and slightly lighter than the USA one.

I baked them, oiled them and baked them again

Any help to the origin of the unmarked pans is greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

The left is an unmarked Wagner ca. mid-1960s or after. The Taiwan pan about the same time frame, maker unknown.
