Steve-I hadn't plans to do so Tim but any new post would be better than the lack of new posts for a long time.
Will you be posting these images on to your blog?
Kim, I have seen your posts before of the stamped and cast holders for the S-wires behind the badge but have not had a reason to remove my fans' badges or backing plates so I am not seeing the whole story.
I still find it unlikely that GE would mix both wrapped and pinned cages in one year but, then, we wouldn't expect to see a brass cage on a 1923 16" AOU either. Another 1923 with brass cage showed up on ebay a few weeks ago. The cage was polished but the seller said when he got it it was painted the same green as the fan as is mine. I agree with the reinforcing ring inside some 1904 badges, what about 1905? I think at least one of my 1904 16" pancakes had that reinforcement ring.
As far as the reinforcing rings, I have a few Pancakes with the rings inside and few without...both original un-restored...not yet.
