Guess my favorite fan ... Time to thin the herd ... Will sell any of the standard height luminaires for $900 ... Will sell any of the taller ones for $1100 ... I have 16 total ... There are no missing castings, no broken castings on any of these fans ... I have crests for all, most are original ... 2 need coil covers of which I may have those as well ... I have not tested all of the fans to see if they are in running order ... I will not ship period ... I made long-distance runs to pick them all up ... I am losing money but enough insanity is enough ... If you ever wanted a complete luminaire, please, now is the time ... Thanks for your consideration ... My cell is 843-557-9871 ... Call or text me if you are serious ...

Yep George ... It’s a compulsion ... I have had 4 members reach out with strong interest on this first day ... I am doing my best to provide pics and more detail concerning each fan ... Delivery is the biggest obstacle to overcome ... But we are strategizing how to make it happen ... I so appreciate the AFCA being so supportive ...

Wish a moderator would turn those pics right side up ... Is that a possibility and eliminate one of the duplicate pics

Very good prices.  One sold just west of Indianapolis a few weeks ago for $2000 at auction.  I couldn’t believe how high it went.  It didn’t even have the correct lights on it.

Hal Hunt’s antique auction back in February in Alabama ... 2 sold for $2200 each plus 15% buyers premium ... It’s just the right time for me to downsize ...

Ben is doing a good thing, passing these on to true collectors, not a profiteer trying to get rich on eBay. I have wanted one of these for a long time, I hope I can swing it.

Just to be as transparent as I can be ... These fans were carefully selected and purchased at auctions, from AFCA members as well as a few on eBay... None of these fans have missing or broken castings ... All but maybe 2 have original crests and coil covers ... Most have original switches but some have replacement switches and they do not match the originals ... This weekend I will be testing the motors and lighting ... These fans are pretty much bulletproof cosmetically, but may need some fine tuning mechanically/electrically ... To those who have been inquiring through PM and text, I have promised additional pics and full descriptions and am not accepting payments until you are fully satisfied ... I know how anal I am and want you to make an informed decision .. I appreciate those that have stated the pricing as fair ... Still love my luminaires, just time to purge and move forward ... less stuff, less worries, simpler life ... Thanks to everyone for their interest and input ... Ben

Hey Ben,
Since I called yesterday and didn't email or PM, just wanted to be sure you've got my email: jehumphrey7577@gmail.com .  The wife is looking forward to the trip out your way, got all sorts of plans to visit Civil War battlefields and museums.  Like I said, all I've got is 6 Saturdays and a Sunday every week since I retired.

Jim

Just FYI, If anybody buys one without a crest, I have brass reproductions available.  They are primered and furnished with the mounting stud and nut.

Lane ... Thanks for sharing ... I have purchased from Lane some of these reproductions in the past ... Whoever he commissioned to do the work, it is excellent ... a very high quality and accurately true example ... If your expectations are high, they will be met ... And the pricing is fair ... 👍

I have available pics of 6 fans ... In the pics, they are identified by a blue tag with alphabetic indicators ... There is at least a front and rear shot of each fan, some fans have more ... In every example, there is no missing or broken castings ... none ... There are two fans that need crests ... I have perfect reproductions that just need to be color matched to the finish on the fans ... Two of the fans need coil covers and I believe I have 2 originals that will fit ... Most all need to be wired because the existing wiring is brittle, broken, not insulated, etc ... Some of these fans I could not get the lighting to come on and/ or the motor to run ... Someone needs to buy these fans who is mechanically and electrically skilled to work on them ... If I have scared you off, then so be it ... Just trying to be as honest and transparent as possible ... If you have interest in pics, you can call Or text me at 843-557-9871 and I can give you full details ... I need an email address or a cell number to send pics ...Thanks for your consideration ...

It’s been awhile since I posted concerning the luminaires ... Sold 4 this past Summer ... Not been too aggressive in trying to sell .., I believe my pricing is fair ... The biggest issue has always been shipping ... I am seriously thinking about attending Chad’s event the end of this month and could deliver the luminaires to Hickory, NC ... If anyone has interest or knows someone attending that could bring back a luminaire from the Meet ... Please contact me at benhosaflook@gmail.com or call/text me at 843-557-9871 ... Thanks for your consideration ... Ben
