Iím sure they are pretty common. Iím just getting into collecting. Iíve got a Wagner skillet that is similar to this. I also wonder on the age? Iím thinking 1930-1959 ish?

Your in the ball park on your assumptions. The dutch oven would double or triple in worth if it had the lid. This would also increase it's usefulness as well. Get yourself a copy of the "Wagner and Griswold Blue Book" if you are getting into collecting. It and the Red Book are BIG help and money well spent! Welcome to WAGS from down in Texas!

Ron,

  From what I hear, you can likely find a glass lid to fit in a local thrift store. Just carry your Dutch Oven in and let them know what you're doing. You might get lucky.

Thanks and I will consider taking a look at the glass lid. Iíve done some research and the cast iron lids are a pretty penny!
Also I considered using it as a camp oven but I think itís best served for home use.
