The Westy you picture is a common model.  Jeff Rusnak knows all about them and most Westy models to boot.  At Fanfair a few years ago there was one, maybe several, new or minty in box Westys like that.   I'm not a fan of newer fans in general but there are a few that really stir my soul.

A Fanfair trip to member Randy Latocki's house and collection some years ago showed me that even newer "tin" fans can be really nice.  He had an extensive collection of art deco fans nicely displayed around his house.  Seeing exception examples of such fans really instills appreciation of them in addition to the early cast iron monsters I love so.

The 10" and 12" Fitzgerald fans.
