Default Lodge lid

Okay, from reading about unmarked cast iron in the reference section, this is a Lodge. With the raised "8" numeral, is it pre 1930s or is it from the 30s? The only reference to raised number is on the handle of the Blacklock skillets. I can't find any reference to a raised number on the lids. On the underside is a raised "F" which is described on a 1930 lid.

Default Re: Lodge lid

The lid shown is probably 1930s, but possibly as early as 1925 or so. Raised numerals on Lodge are seen on pieces such as no-notch marked Lodges, and period DO and skillet covers. The unmarked page doesn't reference raised size numerals on Lodge pieces because other characteristics can serve as positive ID.

Default Re: Lodge lid

Thanks for the response. In my storage area I have cast iron which I have moved around in the past years. I have a Lodge bailed pot and I had several lids that probably have been mixed around. I was unsure which went with it. I'm pretty sure this lid goes with it. Just wanted to check the time period this lid came from. From what I know, it is probably a 30s that goes with the pot. I have no pictures of the pot, as it is waiting to go into the lye bath. It's one of the scalloped bottom ones. This lid was a rusty piece of iron when I put it in the electrolysis tank. Took a while to get all the rust off, but ended up well. The lid has one ding or chip at about 6 o'clock from the 8.
