I brought home an Emerson B Jr. this weekend with an 11 on its cage badge so I'm thinking it is from 1931. However, my Collector's Guide to Electric Fans (John Witt) does not list any Emerson fans between 1929 and 1934. Does this just mean that no new models emerged in the first half of the Great Depression but production on existing models continued?

My two 10" B-Jrs also have the 11 on the badge and the 8" B-Jr. osc. has a 12. It's logical to me that the little number is the manufacture date or model date less 20 and I would think that Emerson was still putting forth some new or improved models during the depression. Maybe John just didn't have an data for those few years in the early 30s.
