Did you wipe all the grunge off the bottom? I was kind of hoping you might find some markings underneath.

Yeah it wiped mostly off. It was clear enough at 12 and 6 o'clock where I would expect markings to possibly emerge, and there was nothing there.

Do you think it might be an unmarked Griswold? I think the big ones had a heat ring. The handle sure seems right.

Nevermind....I just looked at the pictures I guess the Griswolds had and inset heat ring. I am still learning.

At some point I will get this in the e-tank and finished up, if it would ever stop raining...

Can you explain "ribbed" a bit further??

Absolutely!

Here's an example of a marked one from what I suspect is around the same period (stylized logo, catalog number, heat ring)



Note the short handle reinforcement "rib" running along the underside of the handle all the way to the sidewall of the pan. Older Wagner skillets will have an even longer, more pronounced version of this same rib like this one:



Now, compare these to the handle typically found on the smooth bottomed skillets:



Note how the rib is rounded off and not pronounced like the older ones. Also, it does not run all the way to the sidewall of the pan. Instead, it flattens out into the triangular reinforcement the same as my unmarked pan.

Hopefully that clarifies things a bit!

After rain, more rain, travel, and even more rain, I finally got this into the etank and cleaned up.





There's definitely a Wagner Ware Sidney -O- ghost, and the quality is very good so I'm as sure as I can be that it's an unmarked Wagner.

I can see the ghost mark. I think that is a really nice skillet. Even without the mark I would be proud of that find.
