Hello friends. Time to sell one of my fans which I recently restored. Model # 740787. I'm guessing, though I'm not sure, that it dates to around 1912-1913 or so. I would be willing to part with it for $450 including shipping to the continental US. 



Here are some pictures










I'm open to offers. PM me if interested.

so other than the number of vent holes in the motor, it looks just like a BMY with a slightly smaller motor?? Very nice fan.

I have gotten some additional information from some helpful members suggesting that this is a BMY that got a swapped out cage at some point in its life.

Franken fan I guess - no value then...will try to acquire the right cage and struts and get this fan right.

That is the right cage. I have a GE catalog from 1914 and it shows a parallel guard. The first year variant had the drop ring cage
