Congratulations on your find. I have a 77646 AS and a 77646 AA and they are the 2 coolest running fans in my collection. They are daily and nightly workers. Last week at a flea market I found a 79646 AU from 1949. It was in good condition except the base cover was rotted away from sitting in a leaky attic. The thing ran nice and quiet and didn’t get warm. I cleaned it up, painted the rot and the cage, used the bottom of a Clorox jug to cover the electrical and glued on some felt to the bottom. Like you, I couldn’t find a rare beauty, but got something functional. It now has the real place of honor, not on display, but in the bedroom…
