Decoding Cast Iron Numbers and Lettering
I have owned my grandmothers cast-iron pots and pans for years now and have always wondered what the letters and numbers mean on them. When I found out I was blown away.
The numbers and letters that are stamped into these cast-iron skillets, kettles, pots and pans and even wood burning stoves for a reason. You can dig deep into their history and find out when they were made and what their purpose was.
This information is great to know if you want to start collecting them. Remember some of the old ones are worth quite a bit of money. So if you own any, take a look at the numbers and see it’s history.
