Kevin is correct, that #3 is an unmarked Wagner probably from the mid 1960. The one with seasoning instructions is from their 1892 Collection and was produced around 1992 their 100th year of operation. Neither is collectible but both are good users.

BTW those #3's are readily available for $5 or less (at least in my neighborhood). The only thing I've ever used one for was making marinades and sauces.

I would buy it for his price. I would then ask him if he comes across other more interesting stuff to let you know.

In the last 2 years of haunting thrift stores I have found exactly zero pieces of CI.
I did pick up a Wagner "Magnalite" dutch oven but that's not ci.
By far my best luck has been tag sales.

If you're hitting the Goodwill, Salvation Army, stop... Rarely if ever there is anything there. You need to find some good independent thrift stores.

Does anyone have a good 'in' in California? I've been to a lot (no, really, A LOT) of antique stores between Ft. Bragg and San Luis Obispo and don't often see cast iron. If I do, it's relatively modern Lodge or something. Once, I found a shop with a bunch of Griswolds, but they were newer and expensive. I yearn for the opportunity to find someone selling an old, crusty piece of CI that I can take home and clean up, but it just doesn't seem to exist out here.
