This is not collectible cast iron, but it's a perfectly good pan. It has a lot of surface area to heat the food, while still laying on the grill marks.
It has been stripped and reseasoned. To make it darker, you can store it in the oven, and just let it bake along with your other foods. It will quickly darken.
The shipping cost is based on cross-country shipping. Actual cost is lower, and I will refund the difference. Shipping to California may be as low as $10.
I will be looking into PM flat rate medium, which is $14. Message me if you are interested and I'll accelerate the process of finding the correct box.
