No. 5 Birmingham Stove and Range Co. Skillet

This skillet is one we had before starting to buy on Ebay. It has a inset smoke ring with a reinforced edge and double pour spout. I am confident this is a Birmingham Stove and Range Co. 1960 Century Series skillet. I base that on info given at

The following is extracted from that page accessed via the above link.
