Default Ever Hear of Boundary Waters Cast Iron?

Does anybody have any knowledge of Boundary Waters cast iron?
I picked up these 2 saucepans today. They are in pretty good shape. The enamel on the inside is full, but still intact. And the handles need a little TLC.

Thanks.

Found this note below at this URL

"The "Boundary Waters" private brand was from Dayton's department store before Marshall Field's bought them out. The brand included everything from clothing to cookware, linens and probably a few other departments."

Seems to have been produced in the 60's and 70's.

I wonder if we'll ever be able to determine if they were made in the USA?

The info below seems to belie the opinion that Boundary Waters cast iron was produced in the 60's and 70's given that the trademark wasn't filed until 1983 by Dayton-Hudson.

Minor update:

I found another one of these pans with "L.L.Bean" on the bottom. I contacted LLBean's customer service department. They list these pans being available in 1985 & '86, but they don't have any pics nor any other info on them.
