Default Re: Did I get bamboozled??

No, I wouldn't say bamboozled. Wagner's (or any other's for that matter) trademarks were not necessarily all changed on all patterns simultaneously. The lid you have there is of a later date than the one with the raised letters and stylized logo on the top. But it doesn't mean that this lid didn't come with this pan. If your pan has the c/n on the bottom matching the one on the lid, it probably did. The likelihood of an oval roaster being a marriage rather than a match are lower than that of, say, a #8 regular DO. Collectors covet the full writing top version lids more, but I don't think $60 was necessarily out of line on this one. I probably wouldn't have given the full $120 for it, though.
