Griswold vs. Wagner (cast iron opinions)

I've been using Griswold cast iron skillets for about 5 years now.
I thought when I moved to PA I'd find more Griswold pieces since Griswold was made in Erie, PA. NOPE!
Mostly I've been finding Wagner cast iron and alot of it is pretty good looking stuff.
Any comments on how good one or the other is?
What's the best place to find Griswold? I need a #8 skillet.

I've got an old Wagner 10" that is my main skillet. Best cast iron I've ever used.
I've also got a wagner/griswold muffin pan that I believe is a fake. I guess maybe someone could shed light on whether or not they ever combined.

If you just want the pan for cooking - either are great.

For collectibility Grizwold are generally more collectiable, and worth more money. Wagners can be inexpensive or expensive depending on many factors. I own a couple of books on the subject; used to use them to aid in my collecting. You can find more information here:

I saw a Griswold 14" skillet at a flea market yesterday with a $300.00 price tag!

LOL - I have a ton of very collectiable pans, but 99.99999% of the population does not know the difference, and does not care. I have a few pans I purchased in recent years, and have used a lot. My new (non-collectable) pans are as seasoned as my 90 year old collectable pans. I dare say that most folks can't tell the difference bettween bettween my new and old pans except for the logo, and the logo means nothing to them. I have pans which are worth only $2 and pans which are probably worth a whole lot more than $100. For the most part, I look for pans with some collectibility which I can pick up CHEAP! And I mean CHEAP. (Like 1940s Wagner pans for 50 cents each.)
