From the pics on the switch, I think someone "de-optioned" Vics fan...

Ya. It appears to have done ages ago. If his 2 sets of windings in the stator are still intact, that would be a good thing. The only reason I can come up with for the funky switch giving option for AC or DC is the DC winding in the stator would have higher ohms. The 3 speed settings per side would be wired identical to the same nichrome taps in the switch coil, if I am right about higher ohms in one of the two windings.  The fan would otherwise run faster on same voltage DC current.
