Default Cast Iron Pan Identification Help

Hi, wondering if any here can help identify this unmarked pan. Solid inset heat ring, a number 9 marking at 6 o'clock with a couple of dots above and a couple of dots inside the number. Looks like a crested style handle in use in the early 1900's. Number font looks similar to a #9 Victor that appears in the Economy section of CIC. Thanks.

Need a picture of the whole bottom and top. Your picture is too close to tell anything.

interesting that you should mention #9 Victor... I just finished cleaning one up and seasoning it this morning. And yes it looks similar... although mine has a casting flaw right next to the number.

Thanks D Madden, when I get this out of the caustic bath I like to compare skillet measurements and weight with you.

Found this study about Erie skillets which explains some of the features I'm seeing on this one such as handle rib length, handle attachment pad and rim lip reinforcement and wondering if any know of a similar study of Victor skillet features.

If it's an Erie or a Victor, it will be so- marked. There are some unmarked Griswolds made from Victor patterns that only have a pattern number.

Thanks Doug I'm only able to see the number 9 and dots at 6 o'clock so far. Wondering if Griswold may have produced an unmarked series at that time for export to other countries such as Canada being that their factory was located about 15 miles from that border.

No evidence of such that I'm aware. Export-specific, that is.

I was also wondering about the timeframe of the 'not fully marked' victors... I have two now that just have the victor name at the top at 12 oclock and the size at the bottom at 6 oclock and a pattern number. But this #9 has a mix of characteristics from the ERIE table in your pdf... obviously inset heat ring, but mine has a distinct pad and medium rib... which seems like it correlates to a mix of 3rd and 4th series erie attributes.

Noticed that your skillet also has the distinct reinforced lip which according to the ERIE table was out of use by about 1905.
