If memory serves me, the Number refers to the size of the burner in wood burning stoves that it would fit with. You used that certain numbered skillet or pot with the corresponding burner. The letters are pattern molds of the skillet or pot. There may also be a smaller letter which represents the maker of the item. Foundry men had letters to show which man made what pot. Erie and Griswold are early cast iron makers. NancyLouise
