|The F designation sure doesn't help make a determination. A number after the F in 1899 is the norm. The missing choke coil might make you think F5 but without a visual of the stator, it's 50-50. Don't get me wrong, the four pole F4 is a really nice fan and is the dividing line between really expensive fans before and the more common fans after. It's just that the F5 six pole motor is a lot rarer and worth more than the F4. I've had a few interested buyers contact me wanting to know my opinion or if I had heard back from the seller. That's the only reason I got involved.....If I hear back from the seller, I'll let you know.
