Default Griswold Waffle Iron?

Just recently got this waffle iron down to bare iron, the base says Griswold and the paddles are 1908 and the right style, but no logo.

Is this at best a non matching waffle iron? It has the ball hinge as well.

I picked it up for $15 not knowing if it even had a name to it, so I don't think I did bad since I was going to use it anyways, the Griswold name is just a big bonus.

What do y'all think?

All are Griswold pieces. The paddles are not a matching pair. Should be a 885 & 886 paddles that go with the base you have. Like most CI makers in that period they all made pieces for department stores, hardware stores, etc..Without their logo's on them.
Attached is our CIC link regarding waffle irons.

Thank you!
Good to know it's all Griswold, just a mismatched paddle. Well, I'll be seasoning it tonight hopefully and I can start making waffles. Maybe I can happen into the correct paddle one day.

Or a 976 paddle could have been swapped for the 885.

That's true, one side might've broke and they may have found a replacement, but it would've been long ago.

Attached image is what it looked like when I got it.

That is what the Cast Iron I buy looks like.
Nice find for a great price.
I'm still looking for a Waffle Iron myself.

Thanks!

Those are my favorite, it's almost like a surprise as your cleaning it.

I'm sure you'll happen into one, it took a lot of patience on my end.
