1st Series VICTOR No/PN OS/HR Value ??
« on: July 28, 2018, 04:23:55 PM »
Haven't seen another first series VICTOR before. Looks like it was a favorite pan for gravy possible. The outside heat ring is worn down from a lot f use. Smaller than the # 8 ERIE from the same period, lighter too. Any ideas as to value ?

Nice skillet Dan. I've never seen one without the P/N in the middle. Marked #8 is pretty common and used to be found for under $40.  Haven't checked completed sales on eBay recently for them.  Yours might fetch more not having the 721 on it.

The following shows the approximate dates Griswold made the VICTOR's:

VICTOR- with outside HR (w/o P/N)      c1886-c1892          #7,#8,#9
VICTOR- with outside HR (with P/N)      c1892-c1905          #7,#8,#9
VICTOR- with inset HR (no additional markings)      c1905-c1909     #7,#8,#9
VICTOR- with inset HR- marked CAST IRON SKILLET      c1910's-c1920's  #7,#8,#9
VICTOR- with inset HR- Fully Marked (3 lines)      c1920's-c1930's   #5,#6,#7,#8,#9

The VICTOR's were a lower priced line of skillets. Some of the sizes had slightly smaller dimensions than the ERIE and Griswold lines. I believe it is generally accepted that the quality was the same for the VICTOR's as for the other Griswold lines.
