Default Hi all. Any ideas on this one?

I cook with newer cast iron, but am no expert on the vintage stuff.

This is a yard sale find I picked up near Athens TN looking for a smaller skillet for cornbread.

I suspect it is very old, so I wanted to ID and find out the best way to clean.

Any info is much appreciated. Thank You.

Can't speak to the maker...is that lettering up at the 12 o'clock position? Its either an older bottom gated piece, or a recast. Either way, it appears its a great candidate for a lye bath...

Once it's clean, you should be able to tell if there is evidence of side gating, which if so, would mean it's a recast.

Thanks all. Yes, oven cleaner in bag bombardment revealed a sideways capital A at the 12 o clock.

The battle was not won yet, and it went back in for another saturation.

No other marks were revealed thus far.

Ha, only today revealed a crack on the side, so kind of disappointed there. Still some crust on the outer sides, so back in it goes.

There are no other marks on it. Cooking surface and back are totally clean now.

Curious question, is that skillet thin like a Griswold?

Yes Randy, it is. Fairly light for its size.
