With that handle style, it should be a "Wagner's 1891 Original" marketed in the late 1980s-1990s. Occasionally, you'll see a seller who believes they're actually from 1891. Just OK as users; not particularly collectible (if at all).

There is no 12" model. This one is probably the 13-3/8", which has a tab assist handle.

Thanks Doug, Does it have any real value or just a "modern" big $35-$40 cheap skillet?

I do realize values have changed since I was more-actively collecting, but I'd personally save the $40 toward something else. For a #10 or #12 user, I'd look (not on eBay) for a 1960s Lodge or BSR and hopefully spend less (like half), as their lack of markings tend to make them less susceptible to inflated pricing.
