Default Should I Be Concerned with This Griswold 665?

This one is for sale at a local flea market. I have one of the skillets and the texture is very smooth. The one in the picture at the flea market has a extremely rough texture. Any ideas on maybe it being a reproduction? Or would Griswold put something out this rough?

Polish grinding was accomplished with the pan affixed to a rotating mechanism to which a spinning grindstone head was applied. Note that a pan with dividers would make that process impossible.

Doug, that makes sense but the 665 that I have is considerably smoother then the one pictured. That is what is giving me pause. The one pictured has the texture of a newer Lodge piece. Should there be that great of a difference between the exact same piece?

IMO, not on pieces produced in Erie, PA. Perhaps the one pictured has pitting from previous rusting.

Are they selling it as gold? How much is running one of those over there?

I paid $50 for mine I believe, which is a steal. They want $175.00 for this one. I have seen them for over $250
