The only markings on the back of the pan read "Cast iron Skillet 20" then below that is the block logo "Griswold" which is very clear and crisp, then below that it reads "20 inch". All of the markings are quite clear.
There is no rust on this pan. Some of the black seasoning has been cooked off from around the inner sides and bottom leaving a brown patina. There are NO cracks or repairs but there is a factory mold crease on the back, not evident on the inside.
I took pictures of both the inside and outside of this area, shown in the last two pictures below. There is also a grinder mark along the edge of one side of the pan. I went over this pan with 2 different straight edges checking for warps. One straight edge was too wide to fit between the fire ring and the bottom and it showed no warp. The second straight edge, actually a hack saw blade, did fit inside of the fire ring and I noted a very slight warp with light showing through about 1/16 on each end of the straight edge.This does not affect the way the pan sits. I have provided many pictures below so please view them all and if you should have any questions, feel free to ask.
