That's the tell-tell that the cage is brass.There is no indication from the color of the cage wire that it is made of brass.  That fan was made past the time of the brass cage Centurys and almost has to have a steel cage as have all of the pot metal Centurys I have seen.  These steel cages were made using the wrapped wire method and not welded so a cage wire connector would be used.   The connector on my 5 speed enclosed motor Century is missing but the cage is wrapped steel and the rear ring is disconnected where there should be a crimped connector.
