If makers offered promo or starter sets, they were typically the most popular and useful sizes: 3, 5, and 8. Sizes 10 and 12 were also popular. The in-betweens were often not seen as worth spending extra money just to have, e.g. why buy a 4 or 6 when a 5 will do most of the time. So the relatively less-often seen (to different degrees) are the 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11, and 13.

I have found 6's and 7's fairly easily in my area. I have not found a 2, 11, 13 or 14 that I was willing to pay what they wanted for it. 4's are very hard to come by at a good price also, but I was able to find an enameled Griswold 4 SBL at a very good price.

Wagner ware #6 seems to be very common.The question I have , is what each manufacturer sizes are rare. Griswold probably made more 4ís
than anyone else, and BSR 4-6 and 9ís are rare. Just wondering what sizes for each particular foundry are rare? Thanks

A Wapak #14 is pretty rare in my book.
