Your photos aren't the best and show little detail.

At the least you are missing the motor crest and light shades.


You really need to do your research on prices realized for these fans and rethink your price.

We should encourage guests to sell.


Why shouldn't we?


Although this one is beyond reasonable value, it says nothing about the practice.


You can fight with the masses on eBay or you can embrace our forum.


Just like a brick and mortar, if you don't like the price, walk on by.  Or you can (like I did) suggest that the seller look at the actual market.

Maybe he accidentally hit the 0 button twice.

I advised the same via PM. I would actually be interested and am close to him, but that price... ouch. Looks like an epay pie in the sky price to me. 
I also believe the motor has been replaced as there's no oil cup on the rear. I think all or most of these had oil cups. It's also been rewired in a way that likely would need redone with the correct wire and method. The paint on the blades is toast also.  

I guess he must not want to sell it. No one here will give him anything close to what he's asking. 

Oh well.

hello everyone. forgive me for reaching for the moon on the asking price. i am not a seller of items like this and saw some otherprices in this range for similar items. you are correct that this motor has been replaced, it was rebuilt 30 years ago. I had asked the president of your organization for his thoughts before posting anything and he estimated between 1500 and 2500. So i feel that sounds very fair after reading your comments. he also encouraged me to post it on the forum, as this is where serious collectors come and I am not looking at just selling this to someone who wont appreciate how cool this fan is!

Serious collectors know what these are worth. No harm in asking for the moon, but don't be surprised when it doesn't sell or if members try to give advice. I think even $1000 is high given a replacement motor and paint condition. Pics still aren't good enough to see if there are breaks or cracks in the castings. And it's missing the crest. These are all condition problems that adversely affect its value (in a big way) . 
Please don't be offended when these same same collectors who appreciate and know these fans point out deficiencies that affect value. To low ball an offer would be wrong without justification. To educate you on a condition and value shouldn't be construed as an attack on you or your fan. 

Best of luck in selling your fan.

Best of luck with the sale. Hopefully you send it in a crate. I'd hate to see one lost because of improper packaging. These are hard to ship without damage. They're very fragile.

Hi Jeff!

Show us how you packed that fan for shipping! I may have one for sale and I certainly could use the packing tips!
