I Need Help Identifying Skillet
Iím new to the CI collection scene and I was hoping to find some help identifying this skillet. Do the 3 little notches in the base of handle bottom mean anything?

Appears to be an older unmarked Wagner. There's no clear information supporting the notches as being intentional; they are more likely some type of occasional damage suffered by patterns, which were made of aluminum, soft enough to be dented.

To me, it looks like an unmarked Favorite. The thicker, outside heat ring plus the reinforcement on the handle nudge me in that direction.

Re: I Need Help Identifying Skillet
Older Wagners also had non-blended handle ridges. But I see what you're saying, I wonder if it's the way the lighting is from the side that makes the heat ring not look as "rolled" (really old Favorites didn't have that profile). There's a marked Favorite #9 on eBay right now whose 9A looks quite like this pan's. If there was a ghost of a Favorite logo discernable, or that outline that debranded Favorites often have, that would settle it.
