Griswold #9 Skillet

Now, I want to say that I don't do yard sales or garage sales. However, after last Saturday that might change. I went to 3 local sales....I thought that all I would see is old clothes and junk. Much to my surprise I found a vintage Griswold #9 Skillet.  The inside was rusted, and I wasn't very interested until I looked at the bottom...and saw that it was vintage. Well, we love cast iron at my home and I am not certain where the skillet will end up... maybe a gift? I have begun the rust removal and re seasoning of this pan. I found that these were made between 1919 and 1940. How much did I pay? $1. Yes, and this pan is worth much more...I saw one priced at $200 online. That seems too high....but, anyway.
