Default Quartzsite swap meet 2016

I spent a couple of hours at the swap meet with my daughter and granddaughter. The little one made her first negotiation for a better price today, it was a proud moment for me. Here is what came home in my trunk.
The big skillet lid with the tab handle is a mystery to me, the only mark I see is a 10 underneath. It's a very fine casting but the inside surface is completely smooth, maybe the lye will reveal something more.

I was really happy to find this camp oven. I already had the lid, I think they belong together but I have no idea who made it?

Wow you made off with a good bunch of iron there Bonnie. Is that a hinged skillet I spy in the upper center? Nice

I think it's the Wagner 5 star, it has that wavy handle. I won't know for sure until it's cleaned up. I found a Wardway, a McClary,a National, some BSR's, Renfroware, raised number lodges and some Wagners. I passed on a lot of overpriced iron.

Bonnie.
I believe the DO is preautomation BSR. Check this site to confirm.

That is quite a haul. And all in a couple of hours. Just think what you could have done if you stayed ALL DAY!!

Thanks for the info Jack. I am wondering now, after looking at that page if the tab handled skillet cover might be BSR also. It has a raised 10 on the inside of the lid. I think the big DO might be a BSR also, I will know more after I clean some of the crud off. I picked up the two super rusty DO's in Yarnell for $1 each. One of them is a Wagner round roaster, I think it might be to far gone.

Looks like someone has a lot of work ahead. Very nice score, I like all the lids.

The DO here looks like a Lodge DO with High Self Basting Cover, 1920 - 1940s

Bonnie,
Great find. I have never seen that high dome Lodge lid before.

Thanks, my fingers are already getting sore. I bought another button hinge Griswold this morning from a girl here in town. It's really crusty and it's smaller than the one I have. It's a mystery what it says on it. It has the lattice pattern inside so I don't think it's a Selden & Griswold but I am secretly hoping it is. The seller says she has lots more iron.
