Default Biggest Haul Yet - Lots of Work Ahead

I never thought I would be one of those people that would buy this much cast iron in one shot. Honestly, I just saw an ad on Facebook and away I went. There are some good things in that pile and a few scratch-offs that I hope yield some promising results.

I am going to set up a second e-tank so that I can get through this before my 2-year-olds graduate college.

Nice haul. Sometimes it happens that way. In the front stack of skillets, it looks like the 2nd and 3rd from the bottom might be fancy handled, bottom gate marked??

Unfortunately not. I love fancy handles, too!

Most of the haul was Griswold large block logos. I was really happy to see a Slant 9 Erie. Looks immaculate. Several Piqua Smilies, a really nice Griswold 9 Button Dutch Oven, and a rougher Erie Artistic Series 9, as well. Some of them are stuck together so I need to heat them up to separate.

I live in NJ and had to travel north a bit, but this was the first I've seen posted in 6 months of searching.

I know people don't want to take a big chance on dirty iron, but for $300 it was a no brainer.

Will do. I will keep updating this thread. The first item to be worked on is the Erie No. 10 popover pan. Early version. Keeping that for myself since I collect Erie.

That's the one. not sure it has 48 on it though. I threw it back in the lye for a bit just to get the last stubborn bits at the bottom of the tins loose.

They are cleaning up well. My favorite is the 9 slant Erie. The ghostmarking (Griswold's "Erie) is like nothing I have seen, although I am sure others have. It must have been made shortly after the short run for the previous pattern.

The last picture is one I threw into the lye last night. I think it is a 9 LBL EPU. It could be a slant logo, but I think I see a faint 9 on the handle.
