Default Odd Lid

I got this lid with a vintage #8 Lodge dutch oven, but it doesn't fit. It doesn't fit any of my Lodge DO's or skillets, modern or vintage, nor any of my Wagners or BSR's. It is too big for the Lode and Wagners and slightly undersize for the BSR's. The handle is slightly misaligned with the ears and it leans slightly to one side but isn't bent. The underside looks Lodge-ish, but the nibbs aren't all lined up very well. The marking says 10 1/2 in, my other Lodge covers say 10 1/4 in. What did this go with? I did look some online to no avail.

That would be my assumption as well. My 1940s Lodge chicken fryer top outer diameter is exactly 10-1/2".

And you guys are right, it fits my Lodge hammered chicken fryer perfectly, though it is a loose sloppy fit on my 3 notch Lodge #8 skillet. Coincidentally, It also fits one unmarked Wagner #8, but is too big for two others. Funny how that works. I thought I had tried it earlier on all my pieces but obviously I missed a few.
Thanks all.
