Hello everyone.

I'm new to this forum, new to fans- in fact, I'm trying to not become obsessed with them, and for this reason I am posting this!

I obtained a couple (few really) fans from a local estate sale- one was a largish completely encrusted mess that just spoke to me.  I was desperate for a small resto project, this seemed to fit the bill.

I got it cleaned up mostly, and the pic below is a quick shot of the back. the front is the same, all original chrome, still a little grime on parts as I didn't want to pull it to pieces unless it was necessary to do so for value.

At this point, I'd like to get rid of it before I become attached to these things, and have a whole new hobby I don't have time for. I like to hunt for these things, old treasures, but not keep them... weird I know.

Could you all advise me on this? I was thinking $200.00 seemed like a fair price, but is that too high? too low? I see them all over the place, but then some are re-chromed, Painted, missing the tag, others are just great, dirty, whatever.

This one works, 100% (I love the little speed indicator window)...  some thoughts please? The other fan I need to clean up yet is an Emerson Seagull. This one also swings back and forth- saw that one on the forums here too... Again, looking to sell it as well once cleaned up, and could again use advice.

I can get more photos quickly, if anyone wants- I'm just trying to be courteous of the bandwidth...
