RARE MOLD ERROR GRISWOLD 716 A # 10 Cast Iron LG SLANT LOGO Skillet w Heat Ring. Total pictures provided for your viewing. This is a transitional mold redo.
Such as is called in the coin collecting community as "repunched die"... And it is still remaining as a.
The original master mold was the simple old design featuring just a number "10" at the top and the word "ERIE" at the bottom (along with the center logo of course). The "10" and "ERIE" of that older mold was filled, in those 2 locations, and then re-etched with the newer version lettering as you see here. The "10" was properly sanded smooth, but the "ERIE" Ghost remains.
These are extremely rare to come by, and they represent a true collectors item. You can see the pictures taken specifically to show the remaining'visible' markings as noted here.Just look closely at the pictures, you can see the strong ghost remains in various views of the bottom side pictures. Antique Cast Iron LARGE SLANT LOGO Griswold Original Skillet # 716 A - Size 10 SLANT LOGO - MOLD ERROR (see note above) Deep Embossing / Large Slant Logo - With Heat Ring - Bottom shows well used Condition. Interior surface is much nicer - All restored and Superbly Deep Seasoned Finish! These Slant Logo designs from Griswold are very much a collectors item...
But to find and acquire a mold transition error... That makes it very desireable. The pictures tell the whole story here. Condition: No Cracks, No Repairs.
Underside show typical age wear and some pitting... You can also see the older not perfected casting flaw: ie horizontal kinda rough line, as well as the very dominant "ERIE" Ghost - see pictures. The photos are exactly as you will receive this skillet. You are not looking at a coat of oil to make it shine... It is a displayable collector piece just as is, and as you will receive it.
Or, as noted just above.... The last picture in the photos shows all the Cast Iron Skillets I have, or that are already listed this week. I pride myself in describing full details in my listings.Any questions or for more info, please message me. And especially for delicate items. Get images that make Supersized seem small.
