I saw this R&M fan on eBay and it appears to have some really old red felt on the bottom. It’s entirely possible that it was replaced long ago, but I’m curious. Does anyone know if any R&M fans came with red felt originally?

Not that I have ever seen.  I thought they had black felt but am seeing darker green on original fans in my photos.   Some examples, both cast iron and early stamped steel fans.

Thanks for the info Steve. My R&M 2110 had black felt on it when I got it, but I am not sure if it was original or not.

red felt on top of fans

Wrong state Jim, R&M's were made in Springfield Ohio, the "green felt state"
