Default Helping a friend ID her Dutch oven

Had dinner with a friend last night, and discovered a shared love of cast iron. She has a Dutch oven she hasn't been able to identify. I'm wondering if it is BSR, based on the handle shape and use of No. for number on the bottom, but it doesn't have dimples like my BSR. Instead, it has broken concentric rings. Could she possibly have a BSR oven with a lid from a different manufacturer? The bottom of the oven reads Oven No. 6, and at 6 o'clock either an 8 or a 3. The lid does not seem to have any number or mark.

Definitely not BSR. A theory is that they (no. 8s are also seen) are something Wagner concocted using elements of the Griswold Iron Mountain patterns they had acquired.

Hi Angie! I recently purchased this lid at a yard sale and I've been searching the web trying to ID it's make. Mine has the same rings on the bottom but on the lid it has "No 8". Glad you posted this and received a reply from Doug. I've attach photos of mine. Hope they go through.
