Look to make sure there is a hex nut just below the front shaft at about 5 o'clock. That will let you know if the front transmission gears are there with 99% certainty. Someone stuffed a cage badge in the bank door opening. Other than that, make sure all of this is there and you will have a working one speed coin op....
    There was no "later Deluxe three speed model". The National Prepayment Fan Co started in 1914. It operated in Vincennes, Indiana. The first model offered was the three speed oscillating coin op. Five are known to exist, along with the main mechanism of a sixth. In 1915, the company changed to a newly designed three speed stationary model, with a motor that could be manually swivel ed 90 degrees to the left.
    In 1917, the company moved operations to Memphis, Tn and changed the fan from three speeds to one speed fans. There was some carry over of the three speed fan to Memphis, but once supplies were used up, the one speed was the offered product. Models that I've seen are 110v 60 cycle, 125 v 40 cycle, 110v dc, 220v dc, and the 110v 60cycle mismarked as DC.
