I got the first one at an antique shop… I paid around 40 bucks for it. I was thinking it was really old and maybe it was a fair price. I always get concerned with it being a knockoff or something. I think it’s a mental thing. Especially after being ripped off on some gem pans. About a year later, I was in another antique shop and I saw something that looked awfully familiar. It was all crusty, but it looked like the pot I picked up before. I saw the 28 dollar price and asked if he was negotiable. Dropped the price to 20. I could see what looked to say Sidney under the grime. Anyway, one just says, “Sidney” and has the size. The other, “Wagner, Sidney O, and the size. I’m guessing one is just older than the other. Or maybe a different mold. At any rate, finding another of the same pot put my mind at ease about it being a knockoff. I do use the pot. I made clam cakes just the other day. The shape of the pot is great because of the rounded bottom. Makes scooping a lot easier.
