It's beyond me why anyone would want to collect something that they never intend for a practical use, but also contains good information about damage to cast iron and markings (for deciding whether to rehabilitate a piece to cook with, or to sell to one of these collector assholes.)

The above is the site that got me off the fence and into the hunt for cast iron. Provides the basics for stripping and re-seasoning, and most importantly, what to look for in "antique" or flea market cast iron. (Griswold fan)

My definitive source for seasoning cast iron, even though this information is refuted slightly by the cast iron collectibles site; I'm using these methods to rehab four skillets of various sizes (definitely not Griswolds) with wonderful results.
