That is a replacement cord.   I don't remember the color of the old one as it was a couple years ago.  It was old and decrepit.

Here is a mottled copper model of this fan.   I always thought it beautiful.   This one is also marked DC.

So I went to remove the base to put on a temporary power cord. Thinking I was removing what I thought was like a 16th” thick piece of Masonite, is actually steel, and sandwiched in between that and the base I s this thinner piece of what feels like Masonite but like 1/32nd of an inch thick, maybe it’s some kind of card stock or oil board. And it has the instructions printed on it. How cool is that?

1909 Westinghouse publication. Serial 108449A. It's an early and uncommon one, Mel. 🙂

Thank you so much for the research on this one, Russ.
 

  I appreciate this post.   I have learned quite a bit about these little fans.

So I’m guessing there’s supposed to be a speed cool in here on to the the switch eh???? (And how are you supposed to get the switch out???? Only way with the switch blade in place is to stress.stretch the old head wires. Or do I undo that bolt securing the switch????

The 2 small screws on top of the base next to the neck hold the switch in and the coil is wound into the switch around the outside.

Ted, can you post the style numbers on the motor tag designating the number to each example, please?

Hi Ted, you may not like this, but based on Westinghouse documentation all three of style numbers you listed would indicate the models are, or were, all Black Oxide models. Black Oxide ranges from dark finish to what appears to be a lighter gun blue. I am just quoting Westinghouse data. Style 98926 regardless of suffix is Black Oxide finish.

The copper finish example may have been stripped of its Black Oxide finish in past.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I know when I stripped my gun blued GE all brass last summer (kind of regret it but the blueing was not cleaning up good, or how I thought it should be at the time, and I ended up going through to the brass in a couple areas so I said what the heck. Did thai all by hand with blue magic and microfiber btw ), I got a kind of rosey copper color directly under the blueing. I’m certain this wasn’t a layer of copper plating, but seems like a natural occurance in the brass perhaps as a chemical reaction to the blueing process. So yeah…I think spoken maybe stripped the blueing or oxide finish off?

Polished brass.

So I just realized.e this is missing brushes. Just bought a parts black oxide version. Gonna take the brushes from it. Maybe that why it didn’t run???? Do the brushes play a part on AC??????

Trading places….errr, end caps because the brush holders are trashed on the brushed brass. Fan on the left is a parts fan somewhat (cage utterly trashed and in pieces). I saw no way of removing the brush holders from the black oxide cap and putting them in the brushed brass one. There’s a little divot on top that makes it look like they’re held in permanently unless your drill out the rivets b
