Belle and I are entertaining out-of-state visitors, ad we took them crawling through a flea market today. One thing I was looking for is cast iron and I found a dealer who had some very interesting pieces, but he knew what he had ad wanted full retail.
One of the things I was looking for was a nice, small #5 skillet to make a small pone of cornbread. I saw w modern Lodge on the shelf and asked him about it.
"That's a modern Lodge," he said, "Give me $5 and it's yours."
Don't turn your nose up at Lodge cookware. It's still being made today, ad many folks don't consider it collectible, but it's till fine cookware.
I handed him a five-spot ad tucked it under my arm. Got it home, cleaned it and re-oiled it.
I don't know what the current makers-mark of Lodge is, but I'll bet that this thing was made before they started putting pre-seasoning on the cookware. It'll do just fine for what we want to do.
UPDATE. Just a little searching tells me that this logo came into use in 1973,
