Default Re: Need Help Identifying Skillet with Gate Mark

that appears to be an official 'Southern Mystery Skillet'... often known by the initials: SMS.
the inset heat ring, small pour spouts, handle with triangle attachment pad, raised size on top of the handle... sometimes they are gate marked sometimes not and sometimes have markings and sometimes don't. no one knows who, where or when these were made. but whoever made them seemed to make a lot of them as they are quite common in the south and mid-west. believed to have been made in the south (since that is where they are most commonly found).
