These fans were made in the teens. By the thousands, it seems. I've had five of them over the last few years. Every one ran once wired up.
I don't think I paid more than 75$ for any of them. One came with a brass blade, but it's the only one I've ever seen.
There are distinct differences between the years, also. Some I suspect made during the war years had very little or no brass at all including the badge. There are at least two different badges and two different cages. None of them came with switches.
They are ultimately a very usable fan as they put out some air and are very quiet.
