Default Head Scratchers

I didn't want to walk on Jack's thread in Show & Tell regarding hammered skillets so I thought I would just do a post here and see if anyone might I.D. these beauties. The first two pic's are the ones I'm not sure of. The third pic I added a Lodge #3 (hammered nickel plated) and a CHF #3 just for comparison. In the first pic there is a #1 w/ four dots on bottom side of handle, a double zero (00) w/ a line under the zero & four dots lower right, one with two dashes = and four dots lower middle. When I did the handle comparison's I added one additional small skillet that is nickel plated with a square and two zero's underneath it plus four dots at the bottom center.
My thoughts are that they are Lodge (sample type skillets) without the traditional heat rings but only if you compare the handles. Any thoughts are welcome.

One last skillet and I will drop the subject regarding hammered stuff. Attached is a #3 "ugly hammered" skillet, as they have been dubbed that appears to have been bronzed??? I say that because of the color appearance after being cleaned. Purchased from a local antique store it was covered in crud so it went through the customary lye bath and e-tank. When finished it looked to be off color on the exterior yet the inside surface was the normal dark color as one would expect. First thought was that it either was exposed to high heat or a bad nickel plating There's no warping and the bronze color is consistent on the outside up to the lower portion of the handle. Again...Any thoughts appreciated.

I think that last one is a unmarked Wagner skillet.

It was probably nickel plated.

Agree with Bonnie on it being unmarked Wag. The hammered pattern is too uniform and "nice" to be a hammered ugly.

Kevin/Bonnie...Think you both are right. Had forgot about the marked Wagner I have and when I did a comparison it was spot on. Now that I have my display done I will be able to do more comparing with less hassle.
Thanks again.
