There are pans for which the best guess is unmarked Vollrath and which have the number on the top of the handle. Usually #3s.

On page 241, second paragraph, of the RB it almost makes it sound like there were a lot of pieces made that were unmarked on the bottom. That only the lids were marked. It goes on to talk about how others were marked only with a number and usually underlined on the bottom turned sideways. I'd take a picture of the paragraph but I don't know if that violates copyright or something.

Also I meant worn off by pitting not necessarily rubbing. I should have said eroded I suppose.

The RB is saying the pans were not marked Vollrath, but the lids were. The pan bottoms were numbered, with the unusual orientation typical of Vollrath. "Unmarked" usually refers to the lack of a name, but not a lack of numbering. There are also Vollrath pans with both trademark and number on the bottom, as shown on subsequent pages.

Yes, I'd picked up on that convention, buts it's interesting to me that in the same paragraph they say "unmarked" and then they say some were "marked" with a number. Particularly if there are some totally unmarked pieces running around that are attributed to Vollrath. Instead of saying unmarked why not just say some were marked only with a number in the first part of the paragraph? I just love splitting hairs. Lol.

There don't appear to be any such pieces totally devoid of markings, as, again, "marked" vs. "unmarked", as a convention, refers to trademarks not size marks. There are those occasionally-seen unmarked (on the bottom) pieces, but there is still typically a size number, although located elsewhere besides the bottom.

Try this link. The one on the right had a casting defect. It was completely filled with seasoning when I found it.

This #11 Vollrath just popped up in my newsfeed as up for auction. Look at that reinforcement rib. It's short. It looks the similar to me if not identical.
