Default Pitted Erie #8

Picked this up tonight at a discount store.

What are the chances that is all gunk on the bottom and not pitted?

But is the 8 there? My vote, half gunk, half pitting. After all, you did say a discount store.

That looks like gunk as thick as the heat ring.

That looks to be a 6th series skillet from 1905-1907.

I have a National #9 that sulfur ate up in the middle.
