Default Some ID help and approximate values please

Doing some 'cleaning' of the house and going through things that have been stored for years and mostly passed down in the family. I came across a few cast iron skillets that I would like more information about. All in all there are two Griswold plated (one with lid), a Griswold non-plated, a Griswold waffle/griddle, and a deep Wagner.

I am attaching pictures below. I'm not sure if I will keep these, sell, or what. In particular I am interested in information on the Griswold's Erie as some research shows this logo was not made very long? Again, I don't know anything about these so I could be wrong there. I will try to get some pictures of the others posted here if there is any helpful feedback.

Any information would be great and thank you ahead of time!

That is a really nice skillet. It looks to be in good condition. I sure wouldn't part with it for less than $80 but it might be worth more than that. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Please do share the other pictures you talked about. We like pictures.

Steve, the Griswold Erie skillet is awesome! Please keep it for your family. To me Griswold Erie skillets are a holy grail. But if you post it eBay.......

To be honest I would rather keep the ones that aren't plated. Would still like some information on this piece though and an honest value assessment if I were to list it for sale... honest please

Here are some pictures of the other plated which I DID put on ebay so if anyone is interested in it you can find it there.

Holy mackerel! Beautiful pans! I'm not sure what they are wort, but I know I can't afford them. That's why I collect Lodge and not Griswold.

I have my grandfather's Griswolds and Wagners but I have some vintage one and three notch Lodge skillets that I collected myself and I love them just as much. Good thing for me too as the prices on Griswolds and Wagners in my area are $$$ as well. Steve you have got a few nice 'uns there. Congrats!

I honestly think I am just going to keep the non-plated skillet and griddle which are both in excellent condition. I am not looking to start collecting (or at least right now I'm not) and don't have a need for multiples. One skillet for stuff and the griddle which looks like it would be great for bacon 'n eggs is good for me.

So nobody has any information about this Griswold's Erie? I figured a collector's forum would be my best shot at good information about it and possible value, but so far nobody seems to have any.

The blue Book value for your skillet in mint condition is 40-60$. The book is outdated so the true value is actually higher. Collectors do not pay big money for plated skillets unless they are in absolutely mint condition. If you do an ebay search of recently sold plated Erie skillets you will find that I gave you an honest assessment of what I believed the value to be. If your skillet was not plated I am sure you could get more for it.

We all have our favorites, but I would not have let go of that no. 7 skillet with lid! C'est dommage, it's not mine to own or sell--I hope you get good value for it though.
