It's been a while: More fan updates: R&M 3500 AC/DC fan

This little fan has been found in R&M catalogs starting around 1920, depicting this model with no oil cups and a large script badge with no flag in it, later models appear to have oil cups and a badge with the flag on it and smaller R&M script inside of that flag. These are very nice running little fans with a neat and open all cast Iron construction, though the 8 inch two piece stamped steel blade is lacking a bit in construction quality. I got this from a fellow collector for $50 shipped.
