Re: Wagner Cost?

I agree with SeanD... lots here that will help you identify what might be of value or not. For example included in the "Non-Collectible Cast Iron Cookware" section are three Wagners.

Hi SeanD,

From this site's Cast Iron Collecting / Trademarks & Logos section it certainly looks to be a "Wagner Sidney O. Arc/Arc (1895-1915)". Nice find.

Re: An Interesting Question....

Sean,

There is a saying in the retailing industry... 'some people will spend a lot of time to save money, some people will spend a lot of money to save time". No right or wrong, just preference.
