That model fan was made in the 1940's. It represents a significant change in fan design (of the base). That was the first of what is known as "strap fan," (at least among collectors) because of the strap design that supports the motor from the base.

The size of a fan is determined by blade diameter. I'm pretty sure yours is a 12-inch fan. It is missing the GE emblem in the middle of the cage.

While your fan is not considered as collectible or as good quality (by some collectors) as the fans from the early 1900's through the 1930's, it is still a very good fan and should last for many more years.

So, what do you think the value is on it? Round about estimation. It is a twelve inch fan and is there anyway to get a model number or anything else. I really do appreciate your reply.

Values vary somewhat, based on what a buyer is willing to pay and there are also "retail" prices (antique store), but the value among collectors would probably be $30 - $60. Retail could be higher.

With the missing badge, it’s closer to the $30

It’s the correct blade, used to have one just like it & have seen several others. It was the very early strap mount with the earlier style motor. Don’t think they made many of those, it’s a real oddball.

The fan in Devin's original post is a 12-inch fan. The fans in Steve's photos are 10-inch fans. The blades on these 2 different sizes were totally different from one another.

Are you sure? Have him check, hard to tell from a photo, the advert does say they came in different sizes, though I've only seen 10" models myself

Here are easy I.D. giveaways: On/off switch on motor housing, strengthening ribs on stamped blade = 10 inch. Switch on base and oscillator knob on motor housing, No ribs, smooth center raised "disk" hub on blade = 12 inch. Look closer at the images, and you will see this.
