I just picked this up today, what do you guys think?

I couldn't find any information on the search and the gallery shows it as being exactly like the 43X491 model, although this one is in chrome.

 It appears to have the original cord and maybe original plug.  It looks like it had fallen at one point which bent the cage and blades a bit, the fan wobbles pretty good so I've taken out the blade set screw and sprayed in some WD-40 to try and help loosen things.

that is indeed a rare fan as nicholas said.  i am lucky to have one in my collection and i think it is among the best chrome fans from this period.  i can only recall seeing maybe 3 or 4 since i began collecting.  by the way, you can see images of mine on my website...

the blade is tricky to balance as are most like it......
