I just did that to a fine 6" fry pan. I thought it was a cheapo but it 
has a fine smooth machined cooking surface, a jewel. I'll look for 
another that needs the treatment and take some B&A pix for you. I ought 
to line up all my CA ware on a table in the sun for a group photo.
Discovered in a box a Wagner corn stick pan, pristine, no rust and well 
seasoned. Also found a seasoned round frying griddle that looks just 
like your new Griswold but no name embossed on it.

As for the treatment I use several size wood chisels to do the scraping
of rust deposits and black seasoning, then wire brush, Bon Ami and 
stainless scouring pad.
