Bonnie,

Are you talking about the #9 Griswold's Erie or the #7 with the lid. Looking on eBay and seeing some of the prices there I can't imagine the #9 going for that price. I have yet to find an image of anything close to it anywhere on the web.

I am talking about the #9 Griswold. Are you looking at asking prices or sold for prices? I can ask anything I want but that doesn't mean it will sell. The best way to value a skillet is to check the sold for prices to see what people are paying.
As you can see from this link. Plated skillets are not as valuable as bare iron. You can see a number #6 like yours sold for $51.

I agree with Bonnie, plated skillets aren't nearly as valuable as non-plated. That being said, the Griswold's Erie skillets are extremely unusual. The size of the skillet has a huge bearing on the value. I once sold a #12 for $385, but 12's are extremely rare and thus drove the price on the one I sold. Recently a bare #9 sold on eBay for $125. I would expect one like yours to bring somewhere around $100 with the current eBay market. Personally, I would consider keeping it. I know I kind of regret selling mine- they are extremely hard to find and I may never see another in the wild. Good luck whatever you decide.

I agree with Bonnie's and Jody's assessments. Judging on the condition of your skillet my maximum bid would be $100 on eBay. That being said, I know that others here would not go that high with their bids. But on eBay you never know how high any one auction will go. You could go higher or lower than $100. You never know until you actually put it up for bid.

For anyone that was following this the #7 with lid went for $136 + $25 shipping and the #9 without the lid went for $202.49 + $25 for shipping.

I don't regret getting rid of them as I honestly didn't care for the plated look. With that said, I cleaned up and seasoned the non-plated ones I am keeping and they literally look brand new. I've used the griddle a few times now for fried eggs and it is like magic how non-stick it is. I can literally tilt the griddle and the eggs slide all over the place. I am blown away and wonder why I've never used one of these in the past.

So I have a perfectly flat griddle marked 109 I think, a #8 skillet, then a deeper Wagner. The Wagner is not nearly as smooth as the two Griswolds though - definitely a rougher sandpaper-like feel to the surface.

Thanks for your reports on the eBay sales, Steve. I knew that no. 7 would bring a high price. The ones you kept and cleaned will continue to give you good service, so it all came out to the good I guess.
