I have the chance to obtain a few pie tins with the perforated F in the
center.  I know that they are not worth as much as the Frisbie Pie ones, but
are they still wanted by collectors?  Thanks.

It's my understanding that Frisbie pie tins with the perforated F
are MORE valuable than the ones that say Frisbie Pies on them,
because they are so much rarer.  They are valuable to disc collectors.

Actually, the small "F" pie tins are older and rarer than the ones that
say "FRISBEE" but are a little more difficult to sell. I have a
collection of pie tins that I've been selling off all summer and have
found that most casual collectors would rather pay the same price for
the more common variety. I don't blame them. They feel that if they are
going to pay $100 or more for a collectible to display on their mantle,
they would like people to be able to reconize what it is.
         This is not however meant to disuade you from making the investment
(assuming you get a fair price of course). It's unlikly that the value
of pie tins will go down any time in the near future and more likely
they will go up. There is a market out there of more serious collectors
who do want the oldest and rarest of these to fill out their
collections. Good luck

All I've been able to get is an F-pan (perforated F) plate.  My source
for that was trying to get Frisbee Pie pans but could only find the
F-pans.  (A plus for the F-pans is you can hang them with a small nail
right through the perforations that are already there!)
