Just bought a 1905 pancake complete sans cage.  I'd like to find an original if possible.  That would be the 12" dropped ring, pinned cage.  I'll also consider a wrapped even though it not technically original.  Let me know if you have one.  It doesn't have to be perfect.
Thanks,

---Darrell

I think that sold, didn't it?  That would have been perfect.  Day late... yada, yada, yada...

After 1903, I'm seeing that around twenty percent of the entries in the GE Pancake survey have wrapped rear ring cages. The wrapped cages on pancakes and 1st variant '08 BMY's have a cast brass spider holding the s-wires, unlike the stamped brass spiders seen on later cages.

Cool, that's good to know.  I've not seen one of the cast spiders.

Still looking for a cage if anyone has one.

I understand "seeing" wrapped cages on post 1900 pancakes but are they original, or older replacements as I think they might be?   It just does not make sense to me that a large company like GE would mix cage types during a year.

The one thing that I have learned about GE cakes is to "never say never".


Here is a post from over ten years ago talking about this...and the debate continues...
