Hello everyone, just found my first Griswold skillet.

Just looking for some help in determining if it is in fact real. I have not been able to find any info about the 704 U number. Any info would be appreciated.

Hello Ryan,

And Welcome to our NEW UPDATED FORUM !!!

I believe that you are the First Newly registered member to post!!

Yes, your Griswold Skillet is real, and the style handle (Early),  Small Logo, on your skillet would indicate it was produced from 1939-1944.
