Great job on that DO, Robert.

I doubt I'd take that one camping.  I would be crying if something happened to it.

My wife went as far as to say that I loved my cast iron more than I did her.  Not sure that she believed me when I reassured her that nothing was more important than her because she still makes the occasional snide comment about my CI fetish, and that was five years ago. Huh

Perhaps you're right.
Let me see what the old ball and chain has to say about that.
She's been talking about a cast iron embargo, of sorts.
I used to hide my booze, now I have to hide my CI.
LoL!!!

Here's a pic of the lid after seasoning...
How old could this thing actually be?
50? 60? 70?

Duke you're the one that asked to see the bail attachment and that was the telling piece of the puzzle.

That's an older Lodge bottom. The lid and bottom go together, nice find.

Cool. Thanks for the info!
I figured it was a little older (whatever it was) being there was no Made In USA stamp.
Thanks again for the reply...

Lodge lid for sure(old one). Question the bottom though as older Lodge D/O's had heat rings and bale is different. Could be a "marriage" Need closer look at bottom. Undecided

Oooooohhh! A mix and match. Spicy.
Here's a couple pics.
As you can see the "edge" of the bottom looks like its been "welded".
As for the markings...
There's a 9 or a 6 or a lower case g.
What do you think?
Also thanks for the reply!
