Default Re: Looking for More Info About a Wagner Pie Logo Skillet

Wagner pie logo #3s are probably the easiest of the pie logos to find, bare iron or nickel plated. The 1053 is not a serial number but rather a catalog number found on most Wagner pieces after about 1924. The letter after serves to identify the unique working pattern from which the pan was cast. Plated pieces, in the case of nickel plating, are simply bare iron pans subjected to the plating process. The letter following the 1053 has no bearing re: plated vs. bare iron. Plated pieces are best kept away from a SCO, but lye bath cleaning will not affect them. Current values can be determined by searching eBay "sold" listings to find pans of like condition, although many times one can find a better deal "in the wild".
