Default Odd 5" Skillet

I picked up this skillet for cheap at the thrift store. I need a very small skillet and will be using this one for cooking so it is getting smoothed. It is halfway there. It is 5" D at the rim and only 5/8" deep. No markings except 2018 on the bottom. Distinct arch in the handle. AC surface similar to modern Lodge. Grinding revealed no voids and minimum pits so decent foundry work. Anyone guess at the provenance?

I would guess that its foriegn made, maybe even came with a cookie mix. My daughter gave me it. I use it grilled cheese, lol. The 2018 could be a marking soley for when it was made?

Thanks Sean and Doug! It's smaller than the one in Doug's Amazon link. A single small cookie is pretty hard to make unless powdered egg is used but the mix might be doing exactly that. Interesting idea. I was thinking it might be some sort of "collector" series by year but I would expect somebodies logo or something.
