Default Re: Help to ID #8 Skillet

I bought a crudded up one of these years ago, certain from the handle and font of the 8 that I had a Griswold. Came out of the lye tank looking just like this. It's someone (unknown) using an actual Griswold skillet as the basis for a pattern. Mine is very bottom-heavy, I assume from the markings made by the pattern skillet on the sand mold surface being scraped off before casting, and taking some extra sand with it. On yours, I think there's a faint ghost of a large block Griswold logo.

Thanks. It does appear to have some slight marking on bottom. Was my grandfathers and is at least 60 years old. Thats only info I got on it.
