I have been keeping an eye out for a nice large logo smooth bottom but it seems they are more difficult to find then the heat ring. Does anyone know? Is the smooth bottom rarer? Thanks in advance.

Well, I don't know about rare; I just checked my pile and I've got everything but a smooth bottom large logo; I guess it qualifies as HTF at least. Note: I don't have a small logo grooved handle either...
Good luck

If you look at the valuations on p13 of the BB, the #10 is valued the same as a #4 (higher than the other sizes EXCEPT the #2).... that pattern of valuation would place it in the LESS common category.

The #2 would be HTF... (Harder To Find)

A 'Rare' piece would be valued much higher than any of the LB Smooth Bottom EPU valuations.   

Rare is a much overused term.  Smiley Smiley

Cheryl I get what you are saying, I shouldn't have said rare. Just harder to find then the 10 with heat ring. I need one to complete my smooth bottom set and it looks like I just found one. Thanks for the help folks. As always this site is the best!
