Of course, there were stationary types, also given Form designations consistent with model year of production, and of course there are those pesky numbers attached to the letters, to create a myriad of possibilities, and the only thing I'm comfortable now concluding about alpha-numerics now is that those ending with 3 seems to pertain to residence fans.
Steve, I am pretty sure that the GE Form letters pertain to a YEAR and not a model so any fan made in the same year would have the same Form letter.   I think I have seen a few inconsistencies here and there.
